As I wrote in my first “Kick Off Summer” post, I started my Summer by doing some shopping at Inglot. Here you can read all about the Sleeks Lip Glosses that I got and now it’s time for the nail polish haul. If you stick around you will quickly learn I am a nail polish addict and a proud owner of over 60 different nail polishes. But they are all either dark colors or very intense, vibrant ones. And for this season, I needed some pastels, especially since my go-to pastel mint polish from Sephora is slowly running out and got so thick that even a thinner isn’t helping much.
So in my quest to get some pastel nail polishes (and after a complete failure that was getting some random yellow at a drugstore), I decided to get two pastel polishes and some additional ones to make my Summer nails and nail art pop nicely.
For my basic colors, I got two pastels from Inglot’s Spring 2013 collection: 389 and 390, which are really nice mint (that will hopefully be able to replace my poor Sephora one) and a really pretty baby blue.
To be perfectly honest, I’m not crazy about the formula on those, it’s a bit runny and can be tricky to apply. One coat doesn’t really offer full coverage, and because the formula isn’t thick enough, the coverage can end up uneven with only one coat. But with two thick coats, the color comes off beautifully, so while applicatin leaves much to be desires, the finished look is really cute and perfect for Summer.
Because in the Summer I don’t really like heavy nail art and stick to cute, light designs (or ones that take a very short time to create), I went wild and got almost all colors from Inglot’s Crazy Nails collection.
I already got the classic black one and I was super happy with it, so I knew exactly what I would be getting.
I got 212, 213, 214 and 215, which basically translates to red, blue, green and pink. It did help that they were almost 50% off and I could afford so many.
In was surprised (and very pleased) that the colors turned out to be much more intense than they were on the site and I know they will look amazing with a pastel base. The only one I’m kind of disappointed with is the green ne, because it comes of close to black. But overall, they do exactly what I got them for, which is making my nails more interesting.
