Ginger_Talks: NAILED London by Rosie Fortescue, The review…

So today we review the brand new NAILED London collection – a patented revolutionary 3-step system, developed to closely match the look, feel, wear and gloss of a professional gel polish – all without the hassle of a UV-cured in salon gel manicure.

First up: Rosie’s step-by-step guide…

STEP 1

Use: Nailed London Base Coat, £7

  • Ingredients Epoxy Resin and Polyvinyl Butyral form a mesh-like base to help bind the lacquer, and an optical Brightener helps to bring damaged nails back to life.

STEP 2

Use: Nailed London Lacquer, £7

  • Exclusive Dual Polymer Technology delivers a long lasting, durable, high shine finish. Volcanic Glass provides strength during application, Shellac helps to protect nails and a plant derived, patented plasticizer provides flexibility to lacquer. Only one coat is required due to the high percentage of pigment.

STEP 3

Use: Nailed London Top Coat, £7

  • This advanced topcoat completes the ‘self-cured gel-like’ manicure. Acrylic provides non-yellowing properties that help preserve and protect the manicure and ensures a wet-look finish.

The Review:

“We absolutely love this nail collection…  Easy to apply & quick drying, this makes it a wonder product for us! We tried ‘Thigh High Club, £7′  and the colour is lovely, rich in pigment as promised and definitely a competitor for in salon gel polishes! It stays glossy, and stays put on the nail for days… we are on day four and still no chips! We look forward to trying ‘Noodle Nude, £7′ as soon as its time to take this one off 🙂 – Even though at the moment we dont want to!”

Ginger_Talks: Rosie Fortescue talks about her new collection NAILED London

Launching this week, Nailed London from MIC’s Rosie Fortescue, is a revolutionary new nail range with a gel-like lacquer system. Available in 28 catwalk inspired shades with four glitter effect polishes. 

Why have you launched a nail colour range?

For as long as I can remember, nail varnish has been something that I have been obsessed with. I probably change my nail colour around twice a week and it has become a major part of my beauty routine.

Where did you get your inspiration?

I wanted to create a nail range that had colours to suit everyone. Whether you wear a nude,pale pink, bright or pastel shade, there is something in the collection for you. The glitters are a fantastic way to jazz up a colour for a night out too!

Was it just as important to have a high tech formulation as well as amazing colours? 

Yes absolutely. I know when I see a good nail varnish from years of painting my own nails, so for me a colour that lasted without chipping was essential.

How did you decide on the colours?

I tried to bring in colours from my life andmy own inspiration into the collection. Iwas inspired by everything around me,from the pink of a rose, the grey from adress on the LFW catwalk and even thename of my dog Noodle.

“From start to finish I’ve been involved in every aspect of developing this fantastic range. I hope you love it as much as I do!” Rosie Fortescue
