NOTD – Nails Inc Porchester Square

The other week I welcomed a new nude nail polish into my subtly hued collection – Nails Inc Porchester Square*. My colleague was wearing it for the whole of last week and not a day went past where I didn’t chip in and ask her what it was, so finally I caved and lacquered up my nails with my latest nude offering.

Now this isn’t going to blow anyone’s minds here, it’s a straight up greige with a hint of lavender, but I find it extremely flattering against my skintone and it’s definitely up there with my top 10 nudes (yes that list does exist!). It has more purple in it than Essie’s Chinchilly, and is slightly more grey than my other Nails Inc favourite, the limited edition London shade, I’d say it was most like Essie’s Lady Like but a tad lighter. The formula goes on well, just two coats and it’s opaque enough for my tastes. My only problem with it is the lasting power. I don’t know if I’ve been spoilt with the killer combo of OPI’s Nails Envy, Essie polishes and the Seche Vite Top Coat but it just didn’t have the longevity that I was used to – two days and it started to chip off, which is such a shame as it’s such a gorgeous colour! But I know that won’t stop me using it, I’m very tempted to stick a glittery ‘ring-finger’ accent on over it – how very festive of me!

Nails Inc Porchester Square can be purchased from the Nails Inc website and costs £11, not bad, you know what I’m like with my ridiculously over-priced polish – I love ’em although I think I would rather another Essie to add to my white lidded collection! Have any of you tried this? What’s your favourite nude colour, I need to add some more to my list!
