NOTD: Nails Inc Gel Effect Polish in St James

If I could only wear one colour on my nails for the rest of my life it would be red.  Ooooo that's a scary thought isn't it?

I received the Nails Inc Gel Effect Polish in 'St James' in my goody bag from #midsummermeet event and it's the perfect postbox red shade.


The bottle itself seems to have two different ways of using it.  You can twist the cap and use as a regular polish or you can pull the large cap off to reveal a small black cap which some people like myself will find easier to hold.  That's one of my peeves with polishes from certain brands, the cap is often chunky to hold onto whilst trying to apply your polish. 


The brush is more like the traditional nail polish brush.  OPI and other brands have a wide polish which is great for larger nail beds but if you have smaller ones then the more traditional brush is going to be so much easier for you.

 

The colour of this polish is so unusual, if the light is not shining directly on the bottle you'd say it was a cream polish.  However with the light shining on it you can see lots of fine shimmer running through it but when you apply it onto the nail it's completely cream with no hint of shimmer.

 

The above photo is my nails with two coats of polish and without a top coat.  I wanted to show you what it was like without one as this is meant to be a 'gel effect.'  I really think it's comparable to CND Shellac in Wildfire.  

The only point I'm not sure of is the claims of a 'plumping effect' as I really can't see what they're referring to with that.

The bottom like is... If you're a Nails Inc fan you had better try out this classic shade.  I love the dual purpose cap which will appeal to everyone and I think the shape of the bottle is very clean and a little bit different to most brands.
