First Look - Nails Inc for InStyle - 2012 Freebie Swatches




So we all caught the heads up about Nails Inc freebies in this month's InStyle (out today), right? 

How about some swatches in case you haven't made your mind up about purchasing yet, eh?

Bluebell

Bluebell is a creamy pastel mauve with blue undertones. The formulation (as with the other two) is thick and luxurious and is one of the first pastels that I haven't needed a white base to do justice to. 

This (as with the others) is two coats with no top coat. Isn't it pretty? 

Power Pink

Power Pink is a creamy Baby Flamingo pink (It's a colour) and again is a beautiful formulation, it glides on easily, dries to a high shine and is extremely wearable. This might just be my favourite of the trio. 

Peach Sorbet

Peach Sorbet is about as pastel a peach as you're likely to find. The formulation on this one was a little too thick for my liking, taking two attempts to achieve a uniform look with no streaks. I mumbled under my breath applying it but now that I'm typing I can't help looking down to admire it. It's very, very pretty.


So what say you, do one or all take your fancy? This line is exclusively designed for In Style by Nails Inc so unless you snap them up now, you're unlikely to see them again.

These polishes are the perfect colours for your talons this season, that and the fact that the magazine (full of some gorgeous stylings) is only €5.55/£3.80, when the polish alone is worth €15/£11 has to be enough to sway you, surely? It's like making money, non?

Aww, I'm a little bit gutted, I thought they were more brights than pastels! They do look lovely on you though xx

Lynnie said...

OOoooooooOOOooohhh. I think I see Bluebell and Peach Sorbet in my future.

Also: glad to see that the colours are different to the usual Nails Inc freebie fare. The last couple of rounds have been ridiculous in their sameness!

Ooh, I'll be having a bit of that Bluebell so I will. Excellent work, Sue! x

Chloe said...

Bluebell is gorgeous! I've never bought InStyle, but I think I might be tempted. xo

Rachelle said...

i love the peach sorbet! Must get me some! is it one per mag or all three in the mag? Either way its a bargain!

Strawberry Blonde said...

Wowsers you're on the ball girlfriend!! Loving the Bluebell & pink. Peach Sorbet is a bit too pale for me, though would prob be gorge on darker skins.

Thank you for swatching these so quickly!

Bluebell! that's what i'll buy if there are any in the shop

I couldn't find it today - I don't like the peach, knew I wouldn't (just does NOT work on my hands) but I like the pink and I didn't think I would and I like the blue but I knew I would. I will have to choose, I can't buy two of the same magazines (again) for free polish! But I just remembered the word 'exclusive' so.... AAAARGH!!!!!! Sue!!!!! It's like the temptation of christ, only with polish and less holiness...

I went on the hunt for these at lunch but I couldn't find them

Powdered Almond said...

Aw thanks for getting these up so quickly - I'll go hunting maybe for the peach and leave the other two. Peaches always apply badly so I'll let it off. :-) x

Definitely going to get InStyle tomorrow! :) the peach colour is gorgeous.

I picked them up and put them back down and then what do you do.. swatch them, that's what. Now have to pick up them up again. My wallet is not grateful

Wow, I want the Power Pink, so beautiful! Thanks for your swatches!

LoCo said...

Oh I just bought the mag with peach sorbet but after seeing this I think I need Bluebell in my life too.

I picked up the BlueBell but I do like the peach now I've seen it swatched. I thought the consistancy of the BlueBell was great too.

Sharnee at Browns Boutique said...

Great post. i cant wait to pick all three up! xxx

FitznBitz said...

I just picked Peach Sorbet. Was genuinely hard to chose between the 3. Model's Own Beth's Blue is a great dupe for Bluebell by the looks of it

I'm wearing the Bluebell at the moment! It's got great coverage and has lasted a good five days without noticeable wear. I love the colour as it's quite subtle and can sort of alternate between pale blue and mauve to even a bit of grey.

Cheers,
