I'm am so so glad I got both of the promotional Nails Inc polishes with Dove deodorant. Havana, the pinky nude shimmer is gorgeous. I'm not usually a huge fan of Nails Inc because I find their polishes a bit thick and gloopy, and the chunky bottle cap doesn't help, but this one is completely different. The first coat of Havana went on a little streaky but evened out, and with the second it was perfect. You'd need three or four coats for opacity but since I just wanted this for a palette cleanser I stopped at two, and I really think this is my "my nails but better" polish.
I couldn't capture the shimmer, but I assure you it is there! My skin and cuticles are horrendous, so please excuse them.
I did this last night and then took my boys swimming this morning, and chipped a few nails a teeny bit. It was bugging me so I tried something and added gold tips (freehand! a first for me) using Miss Sporty Gold Backstage. A really subtle funky French look.
(A little messy, first attempt at freehand tips, and I had to change a nappy or wipe a nose or something too soon after I added them)
Has anyone else ever had any trouble with Nails Inc polishes? I don't know if the problems I usually have are because all of the polishes I have of theirs are freebies, or all cremes, or just me being rubbish. But I was pleasantly surprised with this one.
