Nails Inc in Bluebell for InStyle

Oh, I love free products so much! Thank you InStyle for this gorgeous gift!
Bluebell is beautiful pastel-ish blue with a tiny bit of purple undertones. Love it. I think it is lovely! The packaging is fine; with silver top, which is big and rounded – typical for nails inc products.

The nail polish is quite easy to apply; the texture is very creamy although on the thick side. Two coats is more than enough to achieve opaque finish. The brush is okay, it is not the best one I used but it is not the worst one either.
The finish is shiny and very smooth. It does not take ages to dry. It started chipping after 3 days, but remember I do chip my nails quite easily so you might get better result, especially with a top coat.

L’Oreal Color Riche Nail in Ingenuous Rose

L'Oreal Ingenuous Rose (2 coats)
Ingenuous Rose is a sheer pastel dusty shade of pink. The packaging is quite cute, as it is small and handy. And I love the golden top I think it makes it look more elegant.
Ingenuous Rose is easy to apply, the texture is great and this shade is not streaky at all although it is quite sheer but it is very buildable so you can achieve an opaque finish with two or three coats depending on how much product you apply. The brush itself is great. It’s wide, nicely rounded and it fits the nails just perfect (meaning that you don’t have to put a lot of effort to apply to every corner of you nails).

The finish is very shiny and creamy although it took quite a while to dry completely (maybe because is gel based?). The lasting power is about 3 days with a topcoat but bare in mind I do chip my nails quite easily so some people might get better results.
