Introducing Inglot's Seasonal Sparkle Polish: 224


Apart from my new grá for Inglot shadows I've been bitten by their polish bug too. I'm a huge lover of metallics when it comes to my talons and have been for quite some time, they allow you to get the sparkle (when the formulation is right) but also assist in skipping with the removal of glitters, which let's face it, is a pain in the flesh. 

Inglot 224: €10
Inglot 224: Serious Sparkle
As you can see, 224 is packing some serious heat when it comes to metallic shine and bright foil effect. To be fair I had tried one or two Inglot polishes before and hadn't been bowled over by their formulation, so how did this one fare? 


It applies like a dream, full foil opacity in two smooth coats with no dragging or graineyness that can be found in a lot of metallic nail polishes. 


It's a much calmer and more yellow gold shade on the nail than in the bottle but even so, once the sunshine hits, it's sparkle city. 224 is subdued enough for day to day wear and subtle enough to go with just about every outfit (including festive party rig outs) so for that it's definitely worth a looksee, as are the other four shades in this seasonal range. 

One word of warning though, longevity isn't as good as it could be. I had tip wear on day two and chips on day three but despite that I'd happily purchase the other shades. Be sure to use a base and top coat to try and elongate your metallic mani but other than that, just enjoy. 

Have you tried these new seasonal shades yet? A foil polish love in general?

Ooo pretty! I've the Barry M Gold Foil which I adore behind normal capacities. It's absolutely ace and wear is quite good, managed a week out of it on just my tips last week x

The best foil polish I've tried was OPI's Your Royal Shineness (Part of the Serena Williams Grand Slam! collection). Those Inglot shades look lovely in the bottle, but I know that they'll be too pale and indistinct on my skin. I wish that they had done some stronger colours

I had Barry M but it doesn't suit my skin tone, gives me corpsey fingers - never a good look LOL x

I really like Inglot in general, good value & lots of colour! NYC have some similar metallics out this season too so we're a bit spoiled for choice!
