Nails inc Covent garden ballet with a side of snake-skin

My collection of Nails inc is getting pretty big especially after Christmas, and I’m starting to realise most of my favourite polishes are from them. Before Christmas I fell in love with Covent garden ballet, then got all sad because you couldn’t buy it as a single, and I couldn’t afford the set. On Christmas my Fiancé got me the set as part of my super haul *squeal*. It has not let me down it is gorgeous!!!!


The shimmer in it won me over. It looks exactly like it does in the bottle on the nail. The shimmer in it makes the neutral grey something a bit special. If you can’t wear bright colours to work I would definitely recommend this polish. I used thin 3 coats. It’s took me a bit of time, and a lot of staring to figure out the colour of the shimmer. There’s not a definitive answer if you ask me. There’s a tinge of pale orange, blush pink and a very pale gold. Nothing overpowering which suits the grey.


I wanted to practice my stamping skills, and try nails inc polish with my stamping plates. On my ring finger I used Nails inc the Thames, and then Covent garden ballet on top. The snake-skin image used was bundle monster 215. My stamping skill’s are pretty poor. At the moment O.P.I seem to be the best for stamping for me . The whole image didn’t transfer on my nail so I stamped some more on top. On my left hand the Image transferred better. It actually resembles the image plate.


I really like the colour contrast between these two shade together. I highly recommend this shade, and think you should all go buy it like now 😉 !!!


Products used: Sally Hansen double duty. Nails in Covent garden ballet and the Thames. Seche vite fast dry topcoat. Bundle monster plate 215, and stamping tools.

Thank you.

P.s. I’ve been thinking about it and it could possibly be my favourite polish. Well maybe I’m still in the thinking stage.
