Nails Inc. Gel Effect in Regents Park Place

Nails Inc. Gel Effect in Regents Park Place
2 coats

Here's another shade of Nails Inc. Gel Effect I found recently trolling the clearance section at my local Sephora inside JC Penney marked down to $2.99 each. This is one of the shades still listed on sephora.com for $15!

Regents Park Place is listed as "burnt orange" but it leans more red on me.

From sephora.com: Let Gel Effect treat you to next-level nails without a trip to the salon. This long-lasting nail polish creates a plumping effect and is formulated with plasticizer technology to give your mani a glossy, pro-finish, flawless look. Infused with a rare flower extract that works to condition and strengthen your nails, its extra wide brush allows the polish to glide on easily. 

I really LOVE this formula- and brush is perfect for my nail shape and I barely even needed to clean up after my 2 coats. I'm looking forward to trying the other shades and excited that I got such a great deal on a great bottle of nail polish!

Nails inc Nailkale Bright Street Illuminator

Nails Inc Nailkale Bright Street Illuminator
2 coats



I recently purchased a set from Nails inc called "Nails inc Baby NailKale Nail Polish Collection"
 that included small mini bottles of the Nailkale Superfood Base Coat, the Nailkale Bright Street Illuminator and St John's Wood pale pink polish. The set originally retailed for $19, but I was able to purchased it in the clearance section of Sephora for $3.99. Score!

I was excited to try the Illuminator. Two coats gave me a gorgeous shimmery finish. I am seriously in love with the brush- it's the perfect shape for my nails.

Info from Sephora.com on the Bright Street Illuminator:
What it is:
A nail polish with iridescent pearls that brighten the pink nail bed, leaving the appearance of whiter tips and healthier nails. 

What it does:
Give nails a dose of healthy-looking illumination with this limited-edition polish. The ultimate treatment for yellowing, stained, or dull looking nails, its patented Regenerating Complex—a blend of aldehyde, zinc, and calcium—boosts the production of keratin for harder, stronger, and well-nourished nails.

Essie Your Hut or Mine

Essie Your Hut or Mine
2 coats
from the 2011 Fair Game Resort Collection

Your Hut or Mine is really pretty- it's a dusty dark pink that has a really pretty shimmer in the sun. You can see it a lot better if you enlarge the pic above. Application was great- I got opaque even coverage in two coats.

Mayfair Lane is listed as "pale pink" and I've got to say- it's a perfect nude four my skin tone. I shy away from shades like this normally, but Mayfair Lane looks really nice on me!

Nails Inc. Gel Effect in St. James

 Nails Inc. Gel Effect in St. James
2 coats

Last week I was trolling the clearance section at my local Sephora inside JC Penney and found four shades of Nails Inc. Gel Effect marked down to $2.99 each. Three of these are still listed on sephora.com for $15! I of course snatched them up, along with lots of other nail goodies.

St. James is listed as "pillarbox red" and appears to be a recycled shade name from the original Nails Inc. line back when they had round bottles. I scoured the web and saw no mention of the pink shimmer that's in there... indoors it's not at all noticeable, but in the sun you can see it and it really makes it glow. You'll definitely notice it in the bottle in the pic above.

From sephora.com: Let Gel Effect treat you to next-level nails without a trip to the salon. This long-lasting nail polish creates a plumping effect and is formulated with plasticizer technology to give your mani a glossy, pro-finish, flawless look. Infused with a rare flower extract that works to condition and strengthen your nails, its extra wide brush allows the polish to glide on easily.
