Well, yesterday I swatched the whole Nails Inc Garden Party Collection, and now I am wearing Bloomsbury Way with Grosvenor Gardens. The pink is probably my least favourite of the set, the other two I instantly loved but pale pink is a bit of a change for me.
However it painted on well and coverage was pretty good in two coats. I would probably have been tempted to do a 3rd coat if I was wearing this alone as you can see a visible nail line and this bothers me, particularly as my nail lengths are quite variable. It was very cold yesterday when I painted these so I don't think I got the very best finish, and I can see ridges in my nails that most shades disguise.
It is a very pretty soft pink and in warmer weather I think I would wear it again, although its likely to be used as base for a glitter, graffiti or some other special effect.
Now for the fun bit. I decided to try a gradient : I do actually prefer a gradient from the bottom of the nail but since there was a VNL to be disguised I did a tip gradient instead. This is a densely packed glitter, a mix of pink, purple and silver large hexes, smaller pink and purple
hexes, then smaller green & silver ones and and fine glitter and you get a lot of glitter on the brush, so I found this a bit tricky, but this is the end result.
I'm afraid the ridges still bothered me, so in the end I went for a full nail of glitter and now I have super sparkly nails and the pink is a very pretty backdrop to this gorgeous glitter. I took quite a few shots to try and capture it - I hope you can begin to see how pretty it is
