NOTD: nails inc. Leather Effect Nail Polish in Clerkenwell

Two coats of nails inc. Leather Effect Nail Polish in Clerkenwell. Eggshell / Off-White Texture.

I have had this polish since around the time I reviewed the nails inc. Leather Effect in Noho {read: too long}; and yes...am only just getting around to reviewing it.

I lovelovelove this color because it has the neutrality of a nude; yet it's striking the way whites tend to be. The formula, however, I'm not in love with.

Texture polishes such as OPI's Liquid Sand line are usually very long-lasting; but the Leather Effect, while being beautiful to look at, definitely lacks that trait. In fact, it wears the same way that a standard creme would; the difference being that, with a creme shade you would wear top coat - with an effects polish you don't. Additionally, the dry time is a bit longer than your average texture polish, so it has a tendency to get messed up very easily.

Yes, it's pretty for short-term wear; but the formula itself can be frustrating to deal with. Not sure if I would recommend this one for anything other than the color.

What nail color are you rocking for #ManicureMonday?

I really like the color, but I don't have the greatest luck with textured polishes either.
