NOTD | Nails Inc 'Kensington Passage'
I recently treated myself to the Latest In Beauty Glamour Summer Edit (£17.99 + P&P here), which included amongst other things a bottle of 'Kensington Passage' from Nails Inc's Gel Effect line; a gorgeous neon pinky-coral shade, I can see exactly how this ended up in a summer edit! This is the first polish I've tried from the Gel Effect line but I really like how the lid of the bottle matches the colour of the polish - what a lovely high-end touch. At the total opposite end of the spectrum to 'The Tide Is High', which I posted about a week or so ago, 'Kensington Passage' has a beautiful formula; it went on smoothly, dried quickly to a gorgeous glossy finish, and one coat was sufficient for a decent coverage - two might have been better but I made do with one! You can see my nail line in these photos but it isn't noticeable IRL so I'd be happy with one coat for sure.
It's a little bit deeper in tone on the nails than it is in the bottle, but I still love it and can see myself getting a lot of wear from this over the summer months! The Gel Effect line claims to offer a long-lasting finish which might be handy for going away, but I've not had chance to put that to the test as unfortunately I had to take this off after one day for work. 'Kensington Passage' is priced at £15 for 8ml, available direct from Nails Inc. Have you tried any shades from the Gel Effect line? Did you pick up the LIB Glamour Summer Edit?
