Nails Inc Gel Effect - Cornwall Road

Happy Friday!

I know I haven't been posting all that regularly and many many apologies for that.  I hope you don't mind.  Once summer slows down things will get better I am hoping.

I know I keep posting about it but I keep hoping it'll slow down!

Today I have one quick mani for you.  I recently placed an order with Birchbox and I had some extra points to spend so I bought the Spring/Summer collection from Nails Inc in their gel effect line.
It has six beautiful colors in mini bottles. I was so excited to get it because I had been eyeing it for a while.

Sadly, I am so disappointed in it.  The color itself is gorgeous, but the formula was just crap.  At least my bottle was.  Plus it had the TINIEST brush on it ever.  I get that it's a mini bottle but they must have found the smallest brush known to man.  It felt like it literally had five bristles on it.  It was also hard to apply.  A bit thick and gloopy and didn't go on smoothly.

Bummer.  I intend on trying the rest of them out so I will update with those as I use them.

Cornwall Road is a Tiffany blue type turquoise.  I used two coats here, except for on my pinky where I needed three. I topped it off with Glossy Glam. I have had it on a couple days already and there are a few chips in it.  But at least it's pretty.

Maybe the bigger bottles are better, anyone have any that can report back?

You can find these at your local Sephora,, and
Keep in mind that this color and the rest of the set may not be available anymore. 

Color Club Birchbox Exclusive - The Wanderlust Collection

Good Evening and happy happy Friday!

This week felt like it went on forever and ever and ever.  I am super happy that it's over and I am ready go get the party started.

Not that I am partying over here.  But still.

Today I have one mani to show you that features all the polishes in the Color Club for Birchbox collection.  I don't see it available online right now, but it was available for $10 for a set of four minis.

The colors are:

London Calling- which you can barely see in the dots on my ring finger.  It's a bright neon pistachio colored polish.

Reign in Spain - a bright neon coral,which is on my middle finger, and also the center dots on my ring finger.  I used two coats here.

Pardon My French - which is the neon pastel purple shown on my index and pinkie nail.  Plus some dots on my ring finger.  Two coats there as well.

Mod in Manhattan - the off white color you see as the base for my dotticure. Two coats there too.

These polishes were a DREAM to work with.  The applied easily and wore for DAYS.  I put this on before I went away for my work conference and it held up beautifully. I honestly can't wait to bust these out again.

While this collection isn't available right now Birchbox does have other colors and you can find other Color Club polishes at a ton of different retailers both online and in brick and mortar stores.
