Nails Inc - Hampstead Gardens

Mustard creme  






Oh boy...  this is one of the fugliest colours I own.

Nails Inc launched this as a trend shade in early 2012 and described it as follows:

"Hampstead Gardens is a chic mustard nail polish to help you nail next season's hottest trend."

It might have been a trend but it's really not for me.  I'm not good with yellow at the best of times (in Colour theory I'm a cool summer) but this very warm, baby poo colour is totally not up my street.  On to the details...

Hampstead Gardens is a mustard creme that applies darker on the nail.

Swatch shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

The formula is great, even for a yellow leaning polish, and look at the shine.  But the colour, just no.....

But we're all different so if you're feeling the love for the this one you can pick it up for only £5 from the nails inc site

  2. Wow I hate this colour but as a true addict I then feel compulsion to get it because I don't have this colour yet haha... :) I wonder who at Nails Inc thought baby poo would be a trendy, or chic, colour?..
