One of the frequent pieces of feedback I get is that as a British blogger, you would like me to feature more British polishes. So, I'm going to, and over the next few weeks, there'll be a whole array of Models Own and Nails Inc polishes to show you (there's already posts for pretty much all the Barry M polishes).
This is Nails Inc Jermyn Street, which is one of their "classics", a bit like how You Don't Know Jacques is an OPI classic.
So, some facts about Nails Inc -
* they name all their polishes after London addresses, giving it a very British feel
* they retail for about £11, but you can pick older ones up for about half that on eBay
* they are good quality
* usually, their polishes are cremes, and all the cremes are really glossy
* lately, they've been branching out a bit and have released some brilliant magnetic polishes and some nice glitters, but predominantly this is a "safe" British line.
Jermyn Street is a glossy creme taupe. One of my work friends wears this a lot, and it ALWAYS looks classy. One of the things I find interesting about taupes is how they really look different on different people, and really seem to "react" to your skin tone. This polish looks 2 shades darker on me than it does on Joanne. The application was great, and very nearly a 1 coater.
So this is a darker taupe, but very warm toned. There must have been a miniscule droplet of purple added at some point - it just gives it a hint of something, without overpowering it. It's a really nice colour, goes on beautifully, but seems very similar to a lot of other taupes I own, so stay tuned for the comparison post!
Enjoy xx :)
