Hello everyone! Today I have the INM Nails Valentine's Day 2015 collection consisting of three creams, a crelly, and a glitter topper. I hope you are all having a fantastic V-day!
First up, is their red polish, Casino Royale, a bright red cream! I was very excited when I opened the package and found this red polish inside, as I am already a huge fan of their polish Red Rover, but upon closer inspection, I noted this looks like dupe of the polish. I personally didn't find any difference between the two. They both have that oh so very subtle orange undertone. I still really love this red, because it is one that has really worked well for me. I don't typically go for reds when purchasing polishes, and I don't like to wear them much because it's just super bright to me, but I really love this shade. So I am happy to have more of this color :).
Application was breezy, with full opacity in 2 coats. No top coat shown, as this dries glossy (and when they do I like to share that because it's something I love about polishes. Still, when I do a mani, I apply top coat for lasting gloss, and protection). Dry time was very quick. No issues noted with the polish.
Next up is Mardi Gras Muave, easily my favorite from this whole collection, a blush toned crelly. It's so elegant, and the formula is dreamy. At first I thought I would need three coats for full opacity, because the first coat was quite sheer, but two coats were enough for me. Again, application was breezy with very quick dry time. No top coat applied for these photos. No issues noted with the polish.
Next up is Bikini, a very bright Barbie pink creme. It's the perfect shade if your are into the super bright, bubble gum pinks! I think this polish would be a great color to wear in the summer, which bodes well with it's name, bikini. This is definitely a fun one that could be used alone, as an accent, with nail art, or just on your toes. Shown is two coats with no top coat. Again, application was breezy with very quick dry time. No issues noted with the polish.
I feel like I have to apologize for my skin tone in these photos, as I was most concerned with getting color accuracy in the polish, as opposed to my skin. This one was hard to capture.
The last of their creams is Pink Petals, a dark pink cream polish. I really liked this color. There were certain lightings in my house where it gave off a slight fuchsia undertone, very nice. Shown is two coats with no top coat. Again, application was breezy with very quick dry time. No issues noted with the polish.
Lastly we have Mi Amor, a heart shaped glitter topper with two different colored hearts in light pink and red. I am not a huge large glitter fan, because I personally don't like the flatness against my highly curved nails, but, it's Valentine's Day, and I thought this was pretty cute. Below, I am wearing Pink Petals as my base and only used the light pink hearts in Mi Amor and randomly placed them on my nails. I added white dots with white acrylic paint for just a bit more detail. I din't have a difficult time fishing any of these, and I love their matte finish. I topped this with one coat of INM Nails Out The Door Fast Drying Top Coat.
You can find all of these polishes on INM Nails's website here, or follow them on Instagram @INMNails for updates on new polishes and promos. They always have great deals on collections, and they're definitely worth a try, especially if you're looking for a staple red polish!
