NOTD Never Naked Nail Lacquer - Into The Woods

Hello! Apologies for being MIA lately, been preparing for Christmas, out on the razz, dealing with poorly kids and a poorly me!

But enough of that! I was recently sent two polishes to test made by Kate from Never Naked Nails who also makes awesome nail polish jewellery and has branched into the Indie polish market.

This first polish is Into The Woods and is from the Country Collection and is an indie that doesn't need a base colour! Time saving for me!

It is a shimmering green with green hex glitter, I also spotted the odd holo hex glitter which pleased me!

The shimmer micro particles shine all different colours but thanks to the great British weather (as in not so great!) my camera struggled to pick it up but think you can just see it on the below photo!

On the first coat I really wasn't sure about this polish, and personally I used 3 coats as I hate visible nail line and once the 3rd coat was on I was in love! The large glitter hexes spread well on the nail and didn't bunch up or move the the tips which is a bug bear with glitter that isn't full coverage.

Something about this polish makes me think of Christmas, which is odd as it isn't really a Christmas tree green but it is also quite subtle on which after full on glitter nails last week has been quite nice. A lady serving me in Boots asked me where it was from which is always nice, especially when you know you are wearing something you can't just get on the high street!

Wear has been great! I painted these on Monday, took the pics two days later and now it is still holding on tight even after a day of having my hands in and out of water on Tuesday, most impressive. Do wish I had used this when my nails were still longer though, but then like my hair I always regret trimming my nails down!

Into The Woods will be available from the Never Naked Nail Lacquer store on Etsy in the new year, keep an eye out!
