NOTD 004 | GLAM AND TEXTURED

Hello, ducklings! Happy Friday! It's been awhile since I posted a NOTD, so I thought I'd bring it back with a polish that I reach for when I've got a special occasion to go to. It's dark, it's glam, it's textured, and it is all courtesy of one little bottle from Nails Inc.!

Nails Inc. Beaded Polish in Embankment, $11.00, is a fun, easy manicure in a bottle. Packed with deep black polish, micro-beads and large silver, holographic hexagon glitter, Embankment creates a trendy textured look in one quick step. It's the perfect polish for parties, nights out at the club, and everyday fashionistas. Drying in minutes, this polish will take you from bare nails to party ready in record time!

I really love this polish. I'm a huge fan of textured and effects polishes, so grabbing one of Nails Inc.'s Beaded Polishes seemed only natural. The product itself is crazy thick and clumpy, so it takes a bit of maneuvering to work with, and you may need a second coat if the first is a bit spotty. However, the end result is totally worth it, in my opinion.  It's a bit thick on the nails, but it gives such great, sparkly dimension.

There are a couple of downsides. Because the polish is thick and textured, bits like dust or powder from makeup application can settle in and dull it up. A good hand wash fixes that right up, though. The wear time is also slim. This polish chips like nobody's business, but I don't see this as a polish one would wear for long periods of time, so that doesn't bother me too much. And with how quickly it dries and can be touched up, you can just slap a dab on top and not have to redo the whole nail. It's pretty pain free!

I'd definitely like to get another one of the polishes in this line! What about you? Have you tried any of Nails Inc.'s Beaded Polishes? What is your fave go-to party polish?

Stay gorgeous, sugahs!

  1. I don't like the look of this brand's textured polish at all. It looks way too messy. The only textured polish I've liked out of all the ones I've tried is OPI Liquid Sand.

    1. I can totally understand that! It isn't everyone's cup of tea. It isn't messy at all, which is really nice! Just polish it on and let it dry. Much less messy than Ciate's Caviar nails. I'll definitely have to give OPI's Liquid Sand a look. Thanks for the suggestion, hun! xx

  3. I'm not usually a fan, but as per usual your incredible writing and persuasiveness manages to convince me ever time! Great post, I think I'm going to have a look at the other colours in the range! Let's just hope they sell them over here in the UK!

    1. Aw, that's so nice! Glad I could persuade you to give the line a shot! I'd imagine that Nails Inc. is sold over there as it's based out of London, so hopefully you'll be able to find a bottle to give a go. Let me know which one you pick out! xx

  4. This looks just like my Barry M polish. It's almost like concrete, isn't it? I adore throwing this on, because one coat and it's completely done and looks fab! xo

    1. Ooh, which Barry M polish? I'm still dying to try something from that brand! It's a little more textured than concrete, but I imagine that's a pretty good description of it. Your reasons for loving it are the same as mine. It's just so quick and gives a bit of edge and glam to your look in minutes! xx

    2. It's the Sequin Nail Effects Range: http://www.barrym.com/products/nails/effects/sequin-nails.html I'm so glad I picked it up as it wasn't really my thing, but it's just so amazing on! Totally agree with you on time and payoff. xo

    3. There's a website that offers Barry M polishes here in the US without the added import fees. Going to have to take a look at getting one now. Thanks for the suggestion, hunny pie! xx

  6. Oh how weird! I like textured nail varnish but this seems to be quite an extreme version. I can see how it would be cool for certain events though :)

    1. Yes, this is definitely an extreme textured polish. I have other textures from other brands that, while really cool, aren't nearly as over the top as this one. But I think that is what makes this particular polish so special! It really goes for it! xx
