Personalise Your Nails
For the past 12 months, it has been all about the nail art.
With so many notable launches, from Ciate’s Caviar Nails to Illamasqua’s Speckled Nails, the aim now is to make nail art as easy as possible for those of us who love the concept but aren’t quite technicians. Luckily, Nails Inc are the latest to introduce a cute and appealing nail art concept that us mere mortals will all be able to achieve – the Monogram Mani.
The idea is to decorate your nails with a printed message using simple lettered stickers. Luckily for us, they’ve anticipated that trying to correctly place a thin, fiddly letter could be a pain. So, the stickers are designed with an invisible thick rim, making the swirls and squiggles of the alphabet user friendly.
Your kit contains 3 miniature Models Own shades. You’ve got the choice of a dark plum shade called Mayfair Place, a cool grey shade called Southbank, and a signature Kensington Caviar 45 second Topcoat to finish the job in no time. Then, you’ve got four sheets of letters to use. All of the letters of the alphabet are included (with handy duplicates of frequently needed characters) and there’s also some cute additions like hashtags and @ mentions if you’re going for a timely manicure.
I had mine done for me at the Nails Inc flagship store on South Moulton St, London, earlier this week by Alice. She mixed and matched their new Gel Effect Nail Varnishes with the letters to show me both new releases, and the result is lovely! I’m really pleased with the effect and have had lots of people asking me where I had them done. One thing I will say is that a few days in I’ve noticed that I can start to see the rim of the letters slightly raising, so I’m sealing it all in again with an extra topcoat to smooth over any tell tale lines.
If you’ve got something special coming up or even want to experiment with a new trend, these are really worth trying out. I’m thinking hens, birthday girls and fan girls are going to love these. Imagine how many Harry Styles manicures we are going to see? Mine included! Ha ha.
Nails Inc Monogram Manicure Collection is available for £20.00 at www.nailsinc.com. Alternatively, you can add some letters to your Nails Inc manicure when you book in on counter for an additional £6.00.
