Nails, Inc. colors....................


Today I have some swatches of Nails, Inc. shade Jermyn Street.  My British mother-in-law (God Bless Her and the Queen) sent me a wonderful collection of Nails, Inc. polishes for my birthday in July and I just can't thank her enough!  I know how expensive they are and had planned on buying a couple at a time and had asked her if she'd be willing to get them for me and ship them if I sent her the money....and the next thing you know I had a huge box of gorgeous, creamy Nails, Inc. polishes delivered to my door just in time for my birthday!  It truly was sooooo thoughtful of her.   So I will be swatching them and posting the pics here as I wear them.  Sometimes the swatches may be of my daughter's nails, as she loves all things nails too.  :o)  "The apple doesn't fall from the tree"

So today's Nails,Inc color is Jermyn Street.  I love this creamy. mocha, sorts mauvey, purpley (is mauvey and purpley real words?) color.  Of course it is swatched on my acrylics.  It looks very chocolatey like a cake batter in the shade pics to me, but when I looked at in the sun there was a purpley, mauvey look to it.   It covered well, only two coats were needed.  And let me just say that my acrylics underneath are not just plain clear.  I have a holo glitter/mylar encapsulated on them so for Jermyn Street to cover that in two coats is impressive to me.   My top coat on these pics is actually nail tek II, a product to build and strengthen one's natural nails, but I use it sometimes as a top coat because it dries pretty quickly and stays shiny.  I prefer Seche Vite though, but I'm out of it at the mo.  I took pics outside in sun and shade.  I will say right now as an FYI that I do not know all the tricks of the trade when it comes to picture taking of nails like other more experienced bloggers so please keep your expectations low.  :o)  I hope they are enjoyed. (Oh yeah, I will apologize now for my dry, ratty cuticles....forgot to oil them)
