[unpaid/ad/affiliate/sample] I think I’ve got one more nail set to show you from my catch up with Nails Inc after this one but they’re a very prolific brand so I’ve no doubt summer will bring even more. These are – as you might gather from the name – meant to replicate that mother-of-pearl sheen than some shells have.

Nails Inc What The Shell

The blue shade is called Let’s Take A Shellfie and the other is World’s Your Oyster. They’ve got an iridescent shift to them which is far more apparent in Shellfie than Oyster but if you like a light catching nail these are for you. They work better, in my view, as a shimmer shot top coat over any other colour or completely bare nails rather than coating them up on their own.

Nails Inc What The Shell

Oyster is really beautiful and captures that mid way point between gold and silver but my preference is for the mermaid shades of Shellfie – there’s pink, lilac, green, blue and silver in there that are as light-catchy dry as they are wet. It’s the sort of thing I’d wear when I didn’t have time to do a proper nail paint but just wanted some effort to be shown! I am not that keen on metallics on toes – especially when they’re not fully opaque – I keep seeing mine at yoga (I have a gold-ish shade on them) and thinking I must take it off and put a proper colour on. Anyway, these are £11 each which seems really reasonable for something that’s so eye catching and handy. Find them HERE, non affiliate HERE. I haven’t shown the swatches because they’re just shifting grey with the light I have but what you see in the bottle is what you get on the nails – in a veil of shimmer.
