It will be a while before I can get my hands on a fabulous piece from Victoria Beckham’s collection so for now I’ll enjoy her nail polish collaboration with Nails Inc. I had been meaning to treat myself to this gorgeous set since it first launched but out of sheer laziness I never got round to it. I decided to indulge in a mini shopping spree last Friday (as you do) when I set eyes on this beauty in the House of Fraser.
The set consists of two shades, Judo Red and Bamboo White, perfect shades for summer in my opinion. At the moment I’m absolutely loving any crisp white or frosted pink tones so I know I’ll get great use out of the Bamboo White. I did test the colours out before purchasing them and they’re quite universal which is a bonus.
I do like a good two coats of polish for a solid look, sometimes even three if I’m feeling flirty. I applied two with the Bamboo White and I was pleasantly surprised that it gave me a full coverage finish. Sometimes when it comes to whites, creams and frosted shades I lose patience as no matter how many coats I apply, they’re always transparent looking. With regards to the Judo Red (it is more orange than red), due to time I was only able to apply one coat as I was in a rush but the pigmentation is so good with the one coat. Absolutely loving the results as you know yourself even on nights out you often forget to apply your polish and a last minute coat is generally what’s left. (And I’m not singing the praises of the polishes just because they’re by VB).
