Black Leather Nails

I picked up this Nails Inc. Leather Effect polish while in New York last month, and hadn’t gotten around to trying it till today.

I was more than a little intrigued to see what the finish was actually like… Nails Inc. (along with Ciate) seem to be ahead of the game when it comes to new finishes and nail art concepts, and I was really into the idea of leather nails. It’s something different at least!
The finish itself didn’t disappoint. It really does look like leather! It’s perhaps a little...

more matte than I would have imagined, but I really like the subtle texture. The black colour I chose (‘Noho’) actually shows up slightly grey-looking when it dries, but I really like it. I know Nails Inc. also make a 'cement' texture polish which I haven't tried, but I'd love to see the difference between these, as this is a little more cement-like than I would have expected.
The formula is really thick and if you’re in a hurry, one coat would be sufficient, but two would be optimal.

Overall, I’m really impressed with this, and I would love to try the nude version! I think the nude leather look would be great for summer.

You can pick up Nails Inc.’s Leather Effect polishes now, priced at £12 (but you can pick it up here for £10.80 with free delivery! YEY)
