Meet Nails Inc Latex! I really didn’t know what to expect from this formula – we’ve seen ‘rubber’, we’ve seen matte and we’ve seen leather effects for nails and Latex sits somewhere in the middle of all of them! Personally, I love the effect – I really thought I was over nail effects but this has made me sit up and take note again.

My nails have been so knackered over the past few weeks that I’ve given them a complete break from swatching and have been using nail wheels instead, but a chance manicure with Jenny Longworth of Revlon has sorted out my raggedy cuticles and has got everything looking nice again. I had to give Nails Inc Latex a couple of goes to get it right and even now I think it can still be improved upon. If you’re going to go for these when they launch my tips are to load up the brush – you can’t really do a thin coat then a thick coat because the formula relies on a uniform coverage and isn’t as pliable as a true liquid polish would be. Give it a little while to dry and then add another heavy coat.

I noticed that it takes a good ten minutes to full dry but the effect is a dull sheen, rather than a truly flat matte (although Portobello Road – the paler shade – looks more matte than Shoreditch High Street). Nails Inc Latex launches in May for £12 each and also comes in a vivid turquoise (Bermondsey Street) and a nude (Camden Passage).
