I predict a future cult classic. Move over Mint Candy Apple, there's a new kid in town..
We all know that watching QVC is bad for the wallet. Had I not watched QVC Beauty this week, I wouldn't have discovered the Nails inc NEW WHITES collection and I wouldn't have been compelled to go out and splurge £14 on a nail polish, oh and an extra tenner on a manicure (oops). But then I wouldn't have discovered my new favourite shade and my nails wouldn't look this good...
Swan Street is a brightened iced mint. One fourth of the New Whites collection - white based polishes with a cool colour twist. Frankly they're all gorgeous and yes, I WANT THEM ALL, but for me, Swan Street is the stand out shade. It's white without looking like a tip-ex nail with a very subtle, yet very striking minty blue shade running through it. It has a real illuminating effect, we're talking complete stand out nails and even though I'm a bit pasty right now, it hasn't washed me out... But I can only imagine how much better it will look partnered with a tan. I love the new bottles and with the new bottles comes a new and improved flattened brush that makes application fool-proof... or so the manicurist tells me. A Nails Inc manicure costs £18, but if you buy any polish you get the manicure for £10, so I decided to treat myself. I'm a tough customer because I'm pretty good at doing my own nails but she did a fabulous job and encouraged me to go square, which i haven't done for ages but completely LOVE. It suits the shade too - cool, funky, fresh. I was surprised that the shade was completely opaque after two coats and streak free. £14 might be a bit pricey for one nail polish, but this one's worth it. Swan Street's going to be my go-to for the summer and beyond.
I love this polish, I can't stop staring at my nails! What do you think - dare to go white?
