I've been perusing a lot of the beauty magazines and runway shows lately and have developed a fascination with some of the nail looks. You'll notice more than a passing interest in statement nail treatments on my Pinterest, with multiple ones involving the color black.
The other day I found myself digging through the magazine racks at the grocery store when I stumbled upon a Glamour edition with a sample of Nail Inc.'s Motcomb Street Polish.
Thinking it was black in the packaging, I couldn't have been more excited. Nail Inc. polish usually costs £11.00 per bottle.
The cost of the Glamour magazine with this product was £2.00.
(Cue me doing my little happy dance.)
I hadn't looked closely enough to realize it wasn't a true black. Instead, it was a really dark navy blue.
At first, I was slightly disappointed. I wasn't sure how it would look with my olive skin tone.
I was really pleasantly surprised. Black can be such a glamorous and dramatic color but I think Motcomb Street is a pretty alternative. And while I tend to keep my nails shorter because of how much art, typing, and cooking there is in my life, I love being able to have a little nail love in my life.
I was really pleased with the formula's quality. It went on smoothly, dried quickly, and gave a nice opacity in just two coats.
Definitely a color I think Alice in Wonderland would've approved of.
What color nail polishes are you wearing this winter?
By-the-by, this isn't a paid advert. I just stumbled upon this lucky find and loved it. And I like spreading the love. ;)
