"Ooh, it looks like a peacock!"
"Wow. That is really cool...."
"Looks like lime confetti. That's really, really interesting."
a few of the compliments I received for Nails Inc. Special Effects
Overglaze polish in The Wyndham Collection. I saw this online and just
knew I had to get it. Because A) I love all things teal. Teal is second
only to purple for me. Blackened teal? Even better. And B) simply put,
the clear flaky special effects topcoat is cool, and I really wanted
something different for my nails lately. (I've spent the past week in
Misa Fashionista, and I was craving something more daring).
I'm in Sephora with the boyfriend, and I picked this up to purchase
because it really was love at first sight. He glanced at it and said,
"Wow... that is really cool." (Yes, he is that well-trained. Can
you believe it? ;). Here's how Special Effects works: you get two nail
polishes in this set, Teal Black Kensington polish and The Wyndham
overglaze top coat. Teal Black Kensington is an opaque, slightly
jelly-ish (on the first coat) creme. You apply two coats and follow with
The Wyndham, which is a clear topcoat/ glaze with handcut, irregular
holographic particles that reflect an iridescent green. The end reult is
equal parts dazzling and cool. This is my first time trying Nails Inc.
polish, and if all of them are as good as Teal Black, I'm in serious
trouble. This formula practically applies itself.
out Teal Black all on its own below. *Note: I aplogize in advance for
the greasy looking hands in these pics. My hands were pretty dry, and
the only thing I had lying around was Kiehl's Creme de Corps.
And... drumroll please... here it is with two coats of Special Effects topcoat, in various lighting:
right?! The Wyndham can look blue-green in certain lights (mainly low),
but its holographic effect is predominantly green. You can get by with
only one coat, but two really is twice as nice. Once again, I had zero
problems with application. I like this set so much, I'm now lusting
after The Old Vic Collection!
