While I did expect Nails Inc Snowflake to be a bit more shimmery than it is in reality, I still think it’s a great topcoat. As you can see the glitter flakes are varying sizes and you get an excellent distribution from gentle flakes to full on blizzard (I have two coats on the middle finger). There are some tiny, tiny blue twinkles in it so it’s a little bit frosty and I’m wearing it here with no topcoat over Essie Cashmere Bathrobe. Nails Inc Snowflake is £12 HERE (but I notice it has sold out at Boots and also at John Lewis).
Essie Cashmere Bathrobe is my obsession – not least because all my life I’ve wanted a cashmere bath robe (who wouldn’t?). It’s a steely grey with a little glimmer in it that looks quite metallic in the bottle but on the nail it’s not the predominant thing. For grey, it’s a very sumptuous colour – my favourite winter shade so far this year. It’s £7.82 (on offer with free delivery) HERE.
I thought it would be useful to put in a reminder of the Le Vernis In Love Etincelle de Neige – Lancome’s take on a frosty nail. It’s not the same as Nails Inc Snowflake – it’s much stronger coverage for a start and I’m wearing it on bare nails which I think you would struggle to do with Snowflake (many, many coats later you might achieve it!) but where it’s similar is with the downplay of twinkles in favour of matte particles. It’s £12.50 and for some reason it’s called Flocon Blanc. HERE.
