Nude Graffiti........ Nails Of The Day.

Today's post is going to be a nails of the day. Other than the Christmas Nailvent series I completed, there haven't been many nails of the days on my blog recently.

The polishes I used for this look were Nails Inc Basil Street and Nails Inc Camden Lock. Basil Street was one of the polishes that came free with Glamour Magazine quite a while ago - and was definitely worth the £2 price tag, as it's the perfect opaque nude colour. It's also the perfect shade for this sort of nail art.

You may recognise the glitter polish as I recently included it in my 'Christmas Haul' post. (If you haven't read it yet, you can do do here.) It's one of Nails Inc's newest limited edition polishes, it's from their 'Graffiti' range.

The shade I have is Camden Lock. Basically it's a clear polish with tons of glitter in it. The glitter is all different sizes, shapes and colours. Hence being called their 'Graffiti' polish. The main colours however are: yellow, green, red and blue.

 On the Nails Inc website it suggests using a white polish as the base coat. However, I personally thought it would look to summery considering it's the middle of winter. So I thought a nude base would be the next best thing.


  1. I'm a bit obsessed with glittery nail polish, and I love all the different sized glittery bits in that one... xx

    1. So am I, shame with all glitter polishes it's such a pain to take off :(

  2. I think using white as it suggests may be a bit harsh. Love the look with the nude!

  3. So cute! Love glitter nail polishes :) xxx

  4. Such pretty glitter! I love how there's a combo of glitters in it! xoxo

  5. This is such a cute idea, I'm glad I found this blog from #bbloggers!

  6. Hiya Becca!

    Thanks for sending the link.
    I'm loving the look of these two polishes together - they look unusual!
    I've never really tried Nails Inc nail polish before - does it last quite long, or does it chip quite quickly?
