Nails Inc November - Designer matte finish - Southwark Street

Matte plum/purple  

Back in 2011 Nails Inc released two 4 piece collections of matte polishes, the Matte Violet collection and the Matte Cherry Collection.

Southwark Street was part of the Matte Violet collection along with Aldgate, a deep violet, Britannia Street, a cool grey and Borough Market, a navy/grey.

The bottles have a nice frosted finish in comparison to the usual clear glass bottles.

Southwark Street is a plum/purple matte, but one of those not completely matte matte polishes if you know what I mean, there's definitely a slight sheen there which gives it more of a satin finish.

Swatches shown are 3 coats, no top coat in the first pic, top coat on 2 nails in the second to show the contrast.

It's a pretty colour but as with most mattes, wear time is pretty bad and why wouldn't you just put a matte topcoat over an existing polish?


  1. I LOVE the color, the finish not so much, so I probably would wear it with a top coat LOL

  2. Now this is a really gorgeous purple and I love its finish :-)

  3. Love this matte purple - don't have one of those polishes actually. That's rare :)
