After trying Nails inc. Leather Effect in Soho Mews last month, I completely fell in love with the texture and finish and was able to try it in a different shade, Shoreditch Lane. This is a gorgeous mulberry/ deep burgundy shade that is rich and full of colour! It is a bit darker in real life but still looks amazing on the nails!
The formula is very thick, creamy and is opaque in just 1 coat, something I love about this range of nail polishes! It means if you apply the polish well, you can have gorgeous leather effect nails in just 1 coat! In the picture I have applied 2 coats just to make sure the colour is opaque and even. When you first apply the polish it is glossy and looks like any other nail polish, but as the polish starts to dry the leather effect will come through. I think it is nice to have this sort of "guideline" to show you when your polish is touch dry! The drying time of Nails inc.'s polishes is quick which is another thing I like about this brand. With the Leather Effect polishes you should not apply a top coat afterwards as this will ruin the matte finish (your nails will have a bit of shine to them, but not too much). Of course this means the amount of time it lasts on the nails isn't great, mine chipped in about a day, so this is something to bear in mind. One thing I would recommend is a good base coat when you are wearing this polish. As the colour is quite dark and rich, it is possible it can stain your nails!
I absolutely love the Leather Effect nail polishes and think they look amazing on the nails! Even though they are part of the Nails inc. Spring Summer Trend, I think this polish would look great during the cooler autumn months.
