Nails Inc Sloane Gardens

Hello my lovelies! How are you all doing today? I'm leaving for Germany tomorrow so I will be away from the blog for a while. But I have prepared a few scheduled posts so I won't be missing any challenges during the next week. The theme for today's untried post was "most expensive", so I finally used the last Nails Inc polish from the blue set I got last year. These polishes retail for £11 in Europe, so technically this was my most expensive untried, even though I didn't pay full price for it.

 Sloane Gardens is a sparkly navy blue glitter in a clear base. I have no idea why I haven't used this polish before. It's a beautiful color and the tiny glitter makes it delicate and elegant at the same time. This can can be used as a layering polish, but I chose to do a full mani with it by itself.

It wasn't very easy to get this to be opaque. The glitter is not that dense and it has the tendency to spread on the nail, plus the fact that it's tiny doesn't help with coverage either. I ended up doing 3 heavier coats and there were still some bald spots at the tips of the nails. I only used one coat of top coat because I don't mind a bit of grittiness, but it does need more if you want it perfectly smooth. Here's how sparkly it looks when light hits it.

I'm really glad I finally got to try this out, but next time I'm gonna use a base color underneath. It would also work great for glitter tips. To see more "expensive" untrieds, visit the blogs below:
