Swatches – Nails Inc – Graffiti Effect – Old Street / Brick Lane

So here I am, finally, with my Nails Inc swatches – here’s two of the Graffiti Effect range – Old Street (multi colour) and Brick Lane (black and white). They’re both composed of a mix of hex, bar and tiny specks of glitter in a clear base.

I swatched these over Sephora‘s Tender Taupe (thumbnail), Barry M‘s Grey nail paint (index & ring fingers) and Model Own Pro in Black. Yep, you heard it folks, like a right royal turnip, I swatched a black and white glitter over a black polish… Go figure ! I did, however, have the sense to whip a matte top coat over the little & ring fingers.

First of all, Old Street didn’t look especially graffiti-esque to me. More like an early ninties glitter party. I think it’s because regular, shiny glitter was used instead of matte glitter. I guess someone out there might like this polish, if that’s the case, note well that this one is up for swaps !

I much preferred Brick Lane, the matte glitter did look just like graffiti. Especially over grey, of course, but I really like this one over taupe, too ! I can imagine it looking great over flashy colours as well, so this is a great all-rounder as far as I’m concerned.

The formula on these was incredibly gloopy. I know it goes with the territory with glitters, but this was like trying to get jam (Americans, read jelly) to spread on your nails ! Even coverage required a lot of dibbing and dabbing about, and, as you can see, I sort of gave up! But, as a glitter, it dried pretty quickly and at least there is so much glitter in the bottle, you don’t have to fish it out.

 

What do you think, worth the effort? Anyone want to swap a polish for Old Street, lol?
