NOTD - Nails Inc 'Power Pink' - InStyle Magazine Freebie



This month, InStyle magazine are being rather lovely by giving away 3 summery shades of Nails Inc polishes.  Never one to pass up a freebie, i got my mitts on the shade 'Power Pink' - a mid-tone pink with undertones of purple.

I have a selection of Nails Inc polishes now and admittedly i haven't paid for any of them; I've gathered them from other magazines in the past, and my boyfriend very kindly collected me all of the free ones that came with bottles of Coke a while back (all he drinks is Coke so i was a very lucky lady that month!). I've always found the quality to be very good, and i have to say, as much as i loved the colour of this one i felt like the application wasn't great as the others in my collection. The consistency is rather thick and the brush seemed to gather a lot of excess polish. I just get the feeling that they have maybe skimped on quality slightly due to the fact it's a freebie.. either that or i just got an odd dodgy one?

Nonetheless, the consistency can be overlooked by the fact that the colour pay-off is fantastic, and one coat is enough to cover the nails to achieve a high quality opaque finish (i still applied 2 through habit...) The brush is also the perfect size and one stroke covers the whole nail - i also love the size of lid as it's very good for grasping - i do love a decent lid to grasp on to, let me tell you! I can't be doing with piddly little excuses of lids (im very clumsy) so Nails Inc have got it spot on for me. It gives a wonderful glossy finish and with an added top coat the polish looks even more amazing. I've also had this on whilst shopping all day and there isn't a chip in sight! For the price of the magazine i'm not complaining whatsoever. And even if the application wasn't the easiest I will probably be picking up the blue shade in a supermarket near me very soon...
