Nails Inc Gel Effect - St James

True red  creme

OMG, March - how did that happen?  I was away twice in February (Lisbon and Venice) so I'm afraid blogging took a bit of a back seat.

My Venice trip was to celebrate my 50th birthday!  So this is officially my first blog post as a 50 something blogger.  I'm pretty sure there aren't many others out there but give me a shout if you are!

On to the nails....

St James is one of my favourite Nails Inc colours, a fabulous true blue red with a very secret shimmer.

This is a 'Gel Effect' version with plumping effect, so extra shiny.

Application was great, swatches are two coats, no top coat.

St James is a super old Nails Inc colour dating back to 2008 at least... obviously the Gel Effect version is much more recent.

Sinful - Trend Matters Velvet - Kurtsey (DemiMatte)

Periwinkle blue/lilac with fine gold shimmer

Kurtsey is a soft cornflower blue with fine gold shimmer/pearl.  It definitely looks more lilac in my pics than in real life where it's more blue.

As name suggests it dries with a satin finish and a soft glow.

Application was fine but this took 3 coats to full opacity.  But I forgive as it's so pretty!

This is from the rather extensive Sinful collaboration with Kylie Jenner in 2016.  I happened to spot a small collection in Superdrug - I always forget that Sinful is now available in the UK.
