Nails Inc Garden Party Collection

Almost an impulse buy for me last week, I had seen a couple of preview pics and decided if the show looked good I would go for this.
This is a stunning summer collection, made up of 3 pale, pastel and quite neutral shades and  a stunning chunky glitter.
Pembridge Crescent is a pale, grey lilac cream, Holland Park Gardens a pale sage and Bloomsbury Way a pretty pale pink, pink but not too sugary pink.
I don't own many pinks so no comparisons there but I have swatched the 3 creams with 2 other colours that came to mind as I was looking at this collection, Leighton Denny Leading Lilac and OPI Thanks a Windmillion. These are two of my favourite colours for those odd occasions when I do move away from darks and nudes, but when I get new colours I like to know where they fit in with existing varnishes.
As you can see, Pembridge Crescent is a little paler and much greyer than Leading Lilac, Holland Park Gardens is in my opinion a very silimar shade to Thanks a Windmillion but much paler.
The 3 cream shades are beautiful. They all applied well in two coats, with good coverage.
And now for the stunning glitter Grosvenor Gardens, a mix of pink, purple and silver large hexes, smaller pink and purple hexes, then smaller green & silver ones and and fine glitter. I blew my pic up really big to try and identify the colours and sizes and have probably missed some.
Pretty stunning eh!! Here are some more shots, I did a bit of a gradient first and then went for a full coat. Well, these are on wait-list at QVC at the moment, and I can say for certain, they won't be getting mine back! All we need now is the summer!!
