nails inc. Coconut Brights Spring Summer Mini Gel Effect Collection Swatches + Review

Fact: this nails inc. Coconut Brights Spring Summer Mini Gel Effect Collection spent far too much time reposing on my Sephora wish list before I elected to pull the trigger; but OMG babes, I am so glad I finally did. Why? This quintet is everything for summer in terms of color; and the conconut water infusion and gel effect finish? Cake! You're going to want this collection in your summer stash. Trust.

Portobello Terrace is a Sky Blue Creme. Blue polishes have succeeded in becoming my number 1 fave shades {even trumping mint green hues}, so, of course, Portobello Terrace is my hands-down favorite color in this quintet. I'm loving the fact that Portobello Terrace has both that bright summer feel pastel-y, muted spring vibe, making it ultra-wearable at anytime. The formula here was a bit thicker than some of the other shades in this collection; but can easily be combated by wiping off excess polish on the lip of the bottle before application. This is 2 coats.

Trafalgar Mews is a Baby Pink Creme. nails inc. actually describes this shade as a blush nude creme, but it is 100% baby pink - not to mention breathtaking. Trafalgar Mews is one of those year-round necessity shades; but I particularly L-O-V-E it for summer because it gives you an insta-tan! Formula here is brill - one swipe, two swipe, top coat, go! This is 2 coats.

Charles Street is a Hot Pink Creme. Ladies, pictures do not do this gal justice because IRL she is even brighter {we're talking borderline neon} and more beach-worthy. She even left me, someone who notoriously feels ho hum about pink shades, swooning. Formula here was pure perfection. Charles Street applies creamy and smooth, and is v buildable. Obsessed with this one for summer - I'm actually using it as a pedi shade right now! This is 2 coats.

Chelsea Park Lane is a Dove Grey Creme. I do love me a good gray, and this one hits all the right notes for spring due to its lilac undertones. The formula here was excellent. Chelsea Park Lane reached opacity in one coat {though I opted for a second to make it more lush}, and was so. incredibly. easy to work with - I'm talking smooth like buttah! This is 2 coats.

St. James Place is a Pastel Peach Creme. This right here is quite the conundrum of a color. Is it a pastel peach creme? Is it a french vanilla creme? Is it a butter creme? Is it a peachy/pinky-based nude? Depending on the light you're in, St. James Place is kind of all of the above. And the truth is, I absolutely love it. Though slightly more patchy during application than, say, Chelsea Park Lane, St. James Place builds quickly and beautifully to a creamy opaque hue that is rich and luscious. I really think this one would look amazing with a killer tan! This is 2 coats.

AVAILABILITY: Sephora, Beauty.com, and Net-A-Porter for the mini set.

PRICE: $29.00.
