Nails Inc Kensington Park Road and Portobello Swatches
So today I recieved an order from Nails Inc, a good little haul. This is sort of part 1. The neons!
Kensington Park Road neon polish
This is a gorgeous bright sky blue. It isn't as neon as I was hoping...I mean it's bright but I think there's still a step to go before it hits neon. It comes close but it's not completely retina burning! It took me three coats to get this opaque, and I did notice that the more layers applied the brighter it got.
Portobello neon polish
Ok, this one kind of is retina burning! It's a very bright orange coral. It did take me four coats to get this opaque, which is kind of overkill, I wasn't expecting that many coats at all. I did notice when it was drying that it started to look like a matte but never quite got there. Like it was stuck inbetween. There was a shine to the nail but it wasn't glossy, nor was it totally flat. Can we say it's a semi-matte? Yeah, let's go with that :D My camera couldn't quite pick up how bright it was, and the 2nd picture is in the shade.
