Nails Inc Glitterati Collection

I have for you today the Nails Inc Glitterati collection, which is a set of 3 glitter polishes, and you would be sure to have party ready nails with these.

First here is Hatton Garden, which is described on the Nails Inc website as a classic silver glitter, but it is much more than that, it is a silver holo glitter and contains large and small glitter particles in a clear base.

Hatton Garden was opaque in two coats but due to the large glitter pieces, it was not completely smooth after 1 coat of top coat, it wasn't gritty, just bumpy.  Application was good on this polish, the two coats were done as normal and did not require the glitter to be repositioned for even coverage.

Here is 1 coat of the Knight, 2 of the polish and 1 of the Shield.

Next here is London Bridge, which is described on the Nails Inc website as vibrant magenta glitter, which is correct but like Hatton Garden, it has small and large glitter particles.  The difference was that London Bridge  seems to be suspended in a sort of coloured base, looks kind of navy blue to me. 

Here is 1 coat of the Knight, 2 of the polish and 1 of the Shield (again, 1 coat of top coat was enough to make it not gritty but still bumpy)

And last but not least we have Chelsea Embankment, which as per the Nails Inc website is a classic gold glitter.  I do have a mini of this polish already in my collection, but I must admit I have not had a chance to use it yet, but now I am wondering why.  

This is an excellent glitter polish, it is small gold glitter particles in a clear base and is super opaque, two coats was more than enough for even coverage with usual application.  This polish was still ever so slightly gritty after top coat.

Here is 1 coat of the Knight, 2 of the polish and 1 of the Shield.

Out of interest, I decided to see how these polishes would work for layering, as they are all fairly opaque.  So here is 1 coat of each over a black, I chose Serena from the Gossip Girl set.

This is 1 coat of the Knight, 1 of Serena, 1 of the glitter and 1 of the Shield.

As you can see, with Hatton Garden and London Bridge you can still see some of the black showing through, but not much, and Chelsea Embankment is so opaque, almost no black is visable.

This collection can be purchased for £25 on the official Nails Inc website.

Thank you for looking and I hope you like this collection of glitters, I know I do <3 xx

This collection was sent to me for review.


  1. I love glitter! London Bridge is very interesting and unique. Love the holo effect of Hatton Garden. And Chelsea Embankment is just perfect for the holidays. Awesome collection!

  2. I do too Mihaela, I go through phases where I wear lots of glitter so I like to have a few waiting for this time, haha xx
