Last week I attended a Nails Inc event, it was basically to show us all their collections that are to come in 2012, and I have to say I was seriously impressed. Before having a look around we were greeted with a lovely glass of champaign, cupcakes, smoothies and canapes, yum! The collections were beautifully presented and waiting for us were the lovely ambassadors to tell us all about them.
(L-R: Notting Hill Gate, Portobello, Westbourne Grove, Ladbroke, Kensington Park Road,
This is the new neon collection which is currently out at the moment. The colours are just gorgeous, I particularly like the blue and bright pink! If you want to wear neons but find them a little too much, I would suggest using it with a nude shade as the tips. It will give it a nice balance but also fits in with the season.
This collection here is called "Nail Jewellery" and I have to say this was one of my favourites. It comes in four colours - Piccadilly Arcade which is an emerald, Burlington Arcade which is silver, Royal Arcade which is a sapphire and finally Princes Arcade which is a pink diamond. They all consist of a clear base with chunks of big and small holographic glitter. Its such an interesting way to wear glitter on your nails and is just stunning, I have one of them on my nails now and its absolutely stunning. Post to come soon :) This collection has just been released this month.
This is one of the other collections that got me a little excited. Its their Autumn/Winter collection which is inspired from the catwalks of Victoria Beckham, Chloe and Louis Vuitton. The collection consists of - L-R- Sloane Garden which is a navy glitter, Chester Street which is a nude pearl, Bruton Mews which is a forest green and Richmond Terrace which is a plum shade. p.s don't you just love they are all named after places in London? This will be available in August and for the whole set it will cost you £25.00
Where do I even start with these? Utterly gorgeous, cute, girly shades perfect for spring. This collection is called "Sprinkles" and is a part of their special effects range. I've never quite seen glitter polishes like these before, really unique. They have a matte creamy base with different colour of matte glitters in each. The collection consists of - L-R: Topping lane which is a pink base with fuschia, silver and blue glitter. Pudding Lane which has a teal base with navy and gold glitter. Sugar House Lane which has a pastel grey base with monochrome glitter. Then lastly my favourite of the bunch and choice of colour when having my mini manicure! Sweets Way which is a pale blue with pastel blue, pink and white glitter. The names are just adorable and really do remind me of sprinkles on cupcakes. This collection is going to be available from June. p.s the only downfall is that these are a pain in the butt to get off!

Now, moving onto something oh so british! Its a limited edition shade called Jubilee which is full coverage and of course inspired by the Union Jack flag. Estee chose this as her manicure shade and I have to say it looked stunning. This will be available from May and will cost you £15.00. oh and how could I forget the crystal cap, make it that little more special right?
This is something that really stood out to me, its a fabulous service that they now have on their website called "Couture". This service offers you to be able to have a unique polish by being able to customise it yourself online. You pick your shade, the cap as well as naming it yourself. It then comes to you beautifully packaged in the Couture gift box. I don't know about you, but I'm always stuck for gifts and this is just the perfect gift. I love how you have the opportunity to make it really personal, I just love it! This will cost you £16.00 - £20.00 but to me its totally worth it for what you get.
The other collection that will be available this year is the Metallic collection which consists of Greenwick Park which is a silver glitter, Wembley which is a gold chrome and Horseguard's Parade which is a bronze chrome. This collection will be out from June and for all three polishes will set you back £25.00. The other new collection that is now available is the new Fishnet Magnetic polishes that comes in three shades - Piccadilly which is a gold shimmer, Soho which is a chrome metallic and Spitafields which is a green metallic. These so much
phew, that was a big one! What collection stands out to you most? And well done if you have made it through to here ;)
