If ever there were a confetti style top coat that you needed in your collection then it would have to be Cherry Garden Street from the Blossom range at Nails Inc.
As we say in the North East, this nail polish is pretty lush. The limited edition, grab it while you can, Blossom collection encompasses springtime perfectly with its unique mix of fine white particles mixed together with other light coloured confetti style pieces set in a clear polish. Nails Inc were inspired by the beauty of blossom trees around the world when they were creating these polishes.
|Nails Inc Cherry Garden Street*|
There are four different colour ways in the collection, of which I have Cherry Garden Street which combines white with pink and yellow/muted gold for a very pretty, feminine look. I can see why Nails Inc were inspired by blossom trees, especially when creating this nail polish as it actually reminds me of the cherry blossom in our back garden, which is so pretty but very annoying when the petals fall and cover the grass!
The nail polish can either be used on its own and built up to your desired effect or layered over another nail polish, perhaps a pastel or pale shade for a cutesy spring look. Here I have layered it over a pastel pink nail polish and a barbie pink which I think looks so effective. I think it helps to tone down the brightness of the barbie pink polish and the randomness of the confetti makes this nail look different every time I use it.
I have only used one coat over the top of my existing polish as I find that it really doesn’t need any more than that, even though Nails Inc recommend 2-3 coats. The particles in the polish are distributed really well on the nail and relatively evenly thanks to the wide and curved brush that the Nails Inc Nail polish has.
The Blossom collection has an exclusive Regenerating Complex in it which boosts the production of keratin for stronger, harder and healthier nails. I haven’t been wearing the nail polish continuously enough to fully test this out but what I will say is that the nail polish itself is very hard wearing and hasn’t caused any damaged to my nails underneath.
Despite being a polish with lots of texture in it, the finish of Cherry Garden Street is surprisingly shiny and after applying my favourite quick drying top coat, I find that it lasts an incredibly long time on my nails. I usually get to about day 5 and get bored of my nail colour, take it off and apply something else.
After trying out Cherry Garden Street, I’ll definitely be looking for more top coat style polishes from Nails Inc.
What are your favourite top coats? Which Nails Inc polishes would you recommend to me? I’m dying to try Baker Street next I think!
