Nails Inc & The 45 Second Promise

It’s a miracle! Someone has finally invented a product that dries nail varnish before I can smudge it! I’ve only just found about it now so sorry if this is old news for some of you. But I’m just too giddy to care.

The Nails Inc ‘Kensington Caviar Topcoat’ is a product dream come true. Literally.

It’s yet another discovery I unpacked from a Glossybox. The November 2012 edition. I’d never even heard of this topcoat prior to receiving my sample and, being honest, I don’t generally rate any of the Nails Inc polishes I’ve tried before. I find them awkward to use, with their fiddly little brushes that just don’t seem to cover as evenly as my beloved OPIs. I much prefer the quality, giant, trademark OPI brush, making it a doddle to achieve perfectly painted nails in just a couple of strokes. Perhaps it’s just familiarity.

But then Glossybox pushed this under my nose and now I’m hooked.

This is yet another quick dry product but the difference is this one actually works. It promises to leave nails super glossy and touch dry in 45 seconds. We’ve heard it all before and I didn’t hold much hope for it actually working. I’ve bought similar products before, the OPI quick drying drops for example. Just seemed to make my hands greasy but didn’t help much with the durability of my freshly painted nails.
This Nails Inc offering really dried in 45 seconds! I love it! My manicure looks great, shiny and above all smudge and chip free! I can hardly believe it. I painted on two thick coats of OPI’s Suzi Says Da and then immediately painted on a coat of the Kensington Caviar Topcoat and dared it to actually be dry in under a minute. It was a busy evening and I hadn’t really time to paint my nails, let alone let them dry properly. I needn’t have worried.

I will absolutely 100% be buying the full size bottle (£12) when this dinky one finally runs out because this is the first quick dry product I’ve found for nails that really does it’s job. To say I’m impressed would be an understatement. It’s such a little thing and I don’t know why it has taken so long but commendations to you Nails Inc for making this girl’s day.
