Nails Inc. Gel Effect in Berkeley Street

Nails Inc. Gel Effect in Berkeley Street
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.

Regents Park Place is listed as "hot coral" but it leans more pink on me.

From us.nailsinc.com: Discover the bestselling Gel effect polish range formulated with revolutionary plasticiser technology for a flawless manicure at home. Gel effect polish glides on effortlessly and the extra wide brush ensures easy application. Highly pigmented to provide exceptional coverage and with a plumping agent to level out any imperfections on the nail

I still 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 excited that I got such a great deal on a great bottle of nail polish!

Deborah Lippmann Raspberry Beret

Deborah Lippmann Raspberry Beret
2 coats

A few years ago, I purchased a Breast Cancer Awareness bag of goodies at Ulta and it included a mini bottle of Deborah Lippmann Raspberry Beret, a shade that was new to me. It appears that it originally appeared in the Deborah Lippmann  "She's Always a Woman Nail Polish Set" that was sold in late 2012. 


With the recent passing of Prince, I suddenly remembered that I'd never gotten around to trying this shade and decided to remedy that. It's really pretty! It's described as "flecked berry 3D holographic". I'd call it a red-leaning berry containing irregular shaped iridescent flakes. Two coats gave me great coverage.

 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!

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.
