On Thursday, I turned 23 and I've had a fairly hectic but lovely week around it.  Age-wise, 23 doesn't seem any different from 22, however, this probably has a lot to do with the fact that for most of the past year, I kept thinking I was 23 and told most people that I was whenever asked. Now, I've heard of people lying about their age to seem younger, but not older...

Along with a lovely trip to Westfield on Thursday, I was also treated to lots of new beauty & homeware bits and pieces, which will be making their appearance on the blog.  One of my gifts was a set of Nails Inc 'Gel Effect' polishes.  I'm usually a Barry M 'Gelly' polish type of girl so I was really excited to give these a try instead.
The colours that I received were:

Covent Garden Place - A 'raspberry' pink, almost neon shade.

Baker Street - A royal, cobalt blue.

Lexington Gardens - A delicate lilac shade.

West End - A strong, statement red.

Colville Mews - A pale Cappuccino, 'greige'.

Uptown - A dusky pink.

One thing that I immediately loved about these Nails Inc polishes was that they provide a gel finish, without the use of UV light or soak off.  I feel like I'm in the minority when I say that I've never professionally had my nails done in a salon and I always prefer to do mine in the comfort of my own home.  The Nails Inc polishes offer a thick, glossy finish with a gorgeous range of colours available too.  I'm currently trialling Colville Mews as this is a great everyday shade, suitable for work or going out.  I personally preferred to apply 3 coats for an extra-thick finish, however, 2 coats would be more than enough.  Even with 3 coats applied, I found the polish reasonably quick to dry and I could get on with my day without my nails feeling tacky.

I'm really happy with the finish of these polishes so far and I'm looking forward to trying out the rest of them.  Oh, and how cute are the names too?
