Nails Inc Gel Effect Polish

We admit:  we have our doubts about gel manicures.  The only time we ever had one, we nearly died of boredom having the polish removed, and didn't love what the remover did to the condition of our nails.  (Took months to recover, actually.)  Besides, we're cautious about exposing the hands to ageing UV light, while the nails 'set'. So four cheers for Nails Inc.  Why four?  Because that's the number of shades they're launching in the debut, limited edition Nails Inc Gel Effect Polish Collection, which delivers a flawless, super-glossy finish that looks like a gel nail - without the faff.  It features what they call a 'self-levelling' formula, which creates a really glassy (and classy) finish.

Choose from putty/mushroom Porchester Square (one of their bestselling shades), Bond Street (rich plum), deep mulberry Kensington High Street - and our current love, the sexy pillarbox red St. James - an eternal classic.

Very shiny-new-car - and very lovely indeed.
