✨I’m frustrated with this Nail Varnish, because it is beautiful, but they are just so damn expensive! The varnish does last well on your nails (even if you are as heavy handed as me!) and I found it didn’t chip until day 5. The shade range is incredible and there are lots of different options ones to choose from. I like the way these sometimes come in sets, where the 2 polishes compliment one another. These also are included in Beauty Box Subscriptions quite frequently, which is a good way to get them. A gorgeous red wine shade came In February’s GLOSSYBOX which I’m super happy with. I would definitely purchase these polishes, but only when they are on sale or there is an offer on, as I’m quite a skinflint when it comes to buying nail varnish and will only buy it if it’s £5 or less.

There are some beautiful colours in this range , so much so that I went out and bought a few more after trying the stunning red that came in my February Glossybox.
They are crazily expensive, so luckily mine were in a sale as I could never have justified it otherwise! I feel you get a lot of product for your money, I really like the shape of the bottle and I appreciate the wide brush (though I somehow just made a mess!).
Unlike other brands, I didn't need a second coat and the formula feels thin and lightweight, so it doesn't dent even after it has dried. My nail varnish started to show a hint of white at the tip of my nails by day two, but it didn't start chipping until day 6, and it was only on day 7 after an hour long bath that it chipped badly enough that I needed to remove it. I'm quite impressed with its duration; it's a shame that it hasn't lasted as well for everyone based on its rating :(

Gorgeous colour, lovely bottle design, fab thick brush but the formula is extremely thick. This can make a 2nd coat trickier than usual, but I can make that work for the gorgeous end result. With my seche vite top coat this lasts well and looks like gel nails!

I think this brand is a miss-and-hit sort of product. The colour range is amazing and the actual appearance is usually amazing. However, I bought Chelsea Embankment (for £14.50) and it couldn't even last a night without chipping. Others can last for a good few days before chipping so I believe it's due to the formula of the nail polishes.

For 5 pounds, you get what you pay for. The colors are beautiful and the polish lasts really long on your nails, even through water. The brush is amazing for my nails and the color looks perfect after a few coats are applied.

Although this is one of my favorite nail polishes, the brush is thing and can leave your nails looking a bit streaky until it has settled on your nail however the lacquer is thick and only needs one coat for the nails to look opaque and glossy. The price is fairly high at £5 although I found it to be worth it. ~R~

not very impressed with nails inc polishes, for the price I expected my nails to be chip free for at least two days, sadly I applied this on a night time and by the next afternoon most nails had big chips in them, wouldn't recommend, save your pennys, I actually tried a primark nail polish that was a similar shade and it lasted much longer and was only £1!!!

I like the finish of these polishes but they can become gloopy if you don't shake them well before use. Although I like these, to be honest I own some less expensive polishes which are as good if not better. The glitter polishes are beautiful though.

So glad I didn't buy mine. Yes, it's shiny, pigmented and dries quickly (somehow seeming to skip the annoying tacky stage) but it offers nothing more than a much cheaper nail varnish does. Plus it chipped after a day. Really expensive, nothing special.

Its a really nice bright pink but still very subtle. It has a nice consistency so one coat is more than enough. I would not say it is any harder to chip off than any other nail varnish i have had. I thought it would last longer than it did. I think price wise its a bit expensive for what it offers in the way it does not last longer than other nail varnishes in the market at a cheaper price.

Got one of these with a magazine, personally I love the packaging. As for usage They come in good unique shades and it stays on for a good few days without chipping. A bit overpriced though, as you usually need a few coats for the color to really stand out. Lovely shine though and easily removed with nail remover.

I've had these for Christmas and sometimes in a magazine and they are ok... but not for the price tag! I find the colour to chip after a few days and you need to have a few coats on as well. But on the plus side there are lots of colours to choose from and some of them are quite unique! I also love the packaging.

Could never understand the hype about Nails Inc until I got one free with Cosmopolitan magazine. They really are lovely colours, the laquer stays on for a good few days to a week. My only issue with these are the price! I don't think they can justify the price tag as I know of several drug store brands that are just as good and do not cost the earth.

got two of these, i really like them! they are probably two of the best nail polishes i have, although they do chip easily, some colours arent so well pigmented, but after a few coats they look fine! they have a matte look on the nails aswell, really nice colour range!

Very nice finish, glossy but dry enough to stay on your nails properly. It lasts on for days nicely and it is thick enough to cover your nail with just one coat. What I find a bit uncomfortable is the brush since the upper is to round and it makes it hard to play around with the brush.

I find these expensive seeing as they chip so easily.I like the shades but they are not massively pigmented.However i find the colours that are released with diet coke last longer and are much more pigmented.So i get them as then they are amazing for the price of two bottles of coke.I love the brands names for their varnish,
