Nails Inc. Topping Lane, Piccadilly Arcade and Soho Swatches & Review

Good morning ladies! I hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was filled with packing boxes, heavy lifting and a few rounds of margs with my best friend! This morning I've got THREE gorgeous Nails Inc. looks for you ladies viewing pleasure. This post is pretty picture heavy so I've added a read more link below the collage so I don't clutter up the blog too much! 

Click the link below for close up's and my full review!

First up, we've got my FAVORITE from the five I was sent, and definitely in my Top 10 polishes -- Topping Lane. One of four polishes in the new Sprinkles Collection, Topping Lane is a stunning creamy, pink polish with fuschia, silver and blue glitter. For this mani, I chose to add a pop with an accent nail in Zoya Natty which matched the blue glitters PERFECTLY.

The Sprinkles effect is perfect for day and night – ideal for summer weddings, garden parties & the festival season! There are 4 irresistible pastel shades to choose from, named after the most delicious streets in London. 

Two flawless coats of Topping Lane and only one completely opaque coat of Natty. Now normally the Sprinkles Collection polishes look matte due to the matte glitters, but I like a nice, smooth surface so I added two coats of Dazzle Dry top coat! I'll be quiet and let the pictures do the talking ;)

I'll just leave this right here.

Next up, we've got Piccadilly Arcade which is a stunning emerald green polish from Nails Inc. Nail Jewelry collection. Nail polish that adorns your nails like jewels. There are hexagon shaped glitters as well as super fine, hand cut micro fragments!

Nail polish that adorns your nails like jewels. The ultimate nail accessory to add sparkle to any outfit. This revolutionary formula has been created with hand cut particles creating faceted fragments that dazzle like precious stones. Who needs diamonds when you can have nail jewelry? (source)

This is a STUNNING polish and I have absolutely nothing like it in my collection so I'm happy to add it to my stash! Green is one of my favorite colors, especially emerald tones. Piccadilly Arcade is perfect for layering with over other polishes and flawless on its on! I've shown you a few different layering options below. All pictures below are two flawless coats of Piccadilly Arcade and two coats of Dazzle Dry TC.

Here's ONE coat just to show you how dense this polish it! Super packed with a flawless application? LOVE it!

Last up, we've got something new to me -- a magnetic polish. Nails Inc. Soho is an one of three new additions to the Magnetic Polish line showcasing a fishnet pattern. Soho is a chrome, metallic polish that applied flawlessly and if you've been around here for a while, you know how I feel about metallic polishes.

Our bestselling magnetic polish is now available with a unique fishnet pattern like you have never seen before! You can create professional, chic nail art in a matter of minutes. There are four steps to achieve this look. 

Step 1: apply one coat of base coat.
Step 2: Set outer cap aside and apply one coat of magnetic polish. Let dry 2-3 mins.
Step 3: Apply one thick coat of polish to one nail & immediatel hold the magnet over the nail while wet for about 10 seconds. Repeat on all nails, ONE. AT. A. TIME.
Step 4: Finish with top coat.

One of the best things about the polish is that the magnet is included in the top. I know there are some with seperate magnets that I'd probably end up losing, so this is a plus for me. Also, this cool little lip you place on your cuticle so you avoid hitting the polish!

Unfortunately my nails are a bit wide so the design didn't go all the way across but SUPER cool nonetheless!

 Whew! That was a lot of pics! Overall, I'm really loving Nails Inc. and it's easily one of my new favorite brand for 2012. I'll be heading to Sephora this weekend to pick up a few more to add to my collection! Don't forget to stay tuned later this afternoon for the start of Indie Week featuring 365 Days of Color!

What do you guys think? Do you plan on picking up of the new colors from Nails Inc? If I had to pick one I'd say go with one from the Sprinkles collection!

Availability: Nails Inc is available for purchase at Sephora or Nails Inc. The Sprinkles and Nail Jewelry collections are $9.50 and the Magnetic collection is $16.00.
