NOTD: Nails Inc Bling it on Leather Effect

Sunday 16 December 2012

Hey Ladies,

A few weeks ago I attended a Debenhams press day & one of the treats on offer was the chance to get a manicure with the Nails Inc team, well there was one polish on my radar so I jumped at the chance.

Nails inc Bling it on Black leather effect nail polish
I have to say the skull was a royal pain in the arse to apply/maintain/get off but I think it looks cool, I don't think I would have had it applied on natural nails as it had to be stuck down with loads of nail glue but the main thing that shone was the polish.

It kind of has a weird texture that does look like leather, not matte not shiny just kind of texturised without it looking like you applied your nail polish 2 minutes before getting into bed & having those patterns on your nails from your sheets when you get up! (bain of my life!)

I completely love this polish, the lasting time is a bit of an issue as you can't add a topcoat otherwise most of the effect is lost so it did wear away (not chip) after a couple of days. However with a statement nail polish like this you're most likely only going to want it on for short periods of time.

I immediately wanted to purchase this but it hadn't been released at that point so I thought I would blog about it when it is available! It is very rare these days for me to get excited about a nail polish but this is definitely on my 'to buy' list (I just did a Nails Inc order last week DOH! should have been more patient) The kit which consists of the nail polish & four skull charms (which are reusable) will cost you £19.00, it is a little pricey & I don't doubt the high street will be on this trend in no time but I doubt the skulls will be reproduced by other brands.

Any of you after these? I wasn't keen on the other shades but I love black goth nails with a bit of bling on the quiet!


  1. I do love the little skull, but I think I would get annoyed with it after a while.. or it would ping off and leave me with a big dollop of glue on my nails! Unsure on the whole texture thing though, I do like a nice shiny smooth nail!

  2. I love these, I will be purchasing it, even if I do feel £19 is a little pricey, but I like the black leather look and the skulls are a nice added bonus tbh! hehe.
