It appears that I have unintentionally built up quite the collection of Nails Inc polishes without ever purchasing one from their beauty counter. With thanks to Glamour magazine, Instyle and gifts from friends I have twelve polishes named after various places in the big smoke. At £11-£12 a pot they aren't the most budget friendly brand of nail polish but make sure you look out for them as a freebie attached to glossy mags.

Nails Inc have recently rebranded therefore nearly all of these polishes are in the old style of packaging and with this in mind some of the cute shade names may have changed too. The lasting power of these polishes is pretty good with a top coat, usually lasting around three to four days chip free on my nails.

In the red family I have, Big Apple Red a true red which is the perfect accompaniment to cat eye liner and a bold, red lip whilstSt James is a punchy orange toned red. Heading slightly darker in the red toned spectrum I have Regent Street the perfect maroon and Hanover Square a purple toned maroon. Hampstead Heath is a raspberry pink-red shade which looks great on shorter, square nails.

In 2011 the griege nail trend whipped up a storm in the online beauty community and as a nod to that hype I have Fashion Fawn a lighter grey toned brown and Oxford Street a deeper, beige brown which although is a tricky shade to wear it looks very sophisticated on the nails.

In terms of the more fun shades that I own, Shoreditch is one of my absolute favourites, a real pop of pink for nails. The lilac shade for Instyle magazine is a beautiful pink-lilac shade which is one of my absolute favourites to wear in the summer time and looks great with a slight sunkissed glow.  The royal purple Bond Street is one of the 'gel effect' polishes which in my opinion doesn't have any more lasting power than the normal formula but the shade is a fun colour for your toes.
St Martins Lane is one of my favourite Nails Inc shades, a gorgeous light aubergine purple, perfect for Christmas time with a layer of gold glitter over the top. A more navy, toned royal blue shade comes by the name of 'Old Bond Street' and this is one of the prettiest shades of blue that I have seen, I like to wear this on my toes. 

And finally, an ode to my favourite Nails Inc polish ever Chelsea is a gorgeous 'almost looks black' purple/red polish that was sadly decapitated in my suitcase whilst I was travelling back from Amsterdam.
