NOTD: Nails Inc x Glamour 'Marylebone Mews'

Having picked up December's issue of Glamour which came with a bottle of Nails Inc nail polish in a choice of four shades, I was pretty keen to try out the shade I went for, which was 'Marylebone Mews'. I chose this shade thinking it would be a fairly typical greige-type shade which would be super-wearable; in actual fact it is decidedly lilac-toned, which gives a girly edge to a shade which is grungy at first glance, whilst still being really easy to wear. I found that the application with this shade was a little off, with the first coat being extremely sheer, and the second coat tending to go streaky unless I was very careful; nonetheless, two coats was enough for a reasonable amount of opacity. Photos below show two coats of 'Marylebone Mews' with no base or top coat; as you can see it dries to a lovely glossy finish.

  1. Oh, I love that every December Glamour comes with Nails Inc shades! I tend to buy all of them but I haven't had a chance to see them all yet.

    This shade is gorgeous! I find most of their shades are quite sheer on the first application. Generally two coats are needed to properly show off the colour. A bit of a pain but I love the brand.
