Another Konad catch-up. This one I did for New Years Eve.
I used Nails Inc in Victoria and Albert for the base, it is a stunning rich deep red, very classic and the polish itself applied really nicely. However I hate the bottle design. They may look stylish but those wide, fat lids do not make for a comfortable application, it always feels like its about to jump out my hand, instead of feeling secure in my fingers. Ah well, the finish at least is incredibly glossy even without a top coat. I used only two coats for this.
For the design I used plate M66 in konad black for the bamboo and plate S6 and China Glaze 2030 for the asian symbol on the ring and thumb nails only.
I really liked this one and the bamboo design is now a firm favourite as it just looks so clean and crisp. Wish I could say the same for the Nails Inc polish. I adored the colour, this is the type of red I love, however the wear was terrible, it had quite big chips in less than 24 hours! I ended up having to remove it the next day, and usually my mani's last 3-5 days, not good. Shame as it is such a great colour.
Do any of you have issues with Nails Inc polishes or am I just unlucky with this one?
