NAILS - File & Polish at Nails Inc.
I was lucky enough to be invited to Debenhams at Westfield in London to celebrate their new Debenhams Beauty Club Reward Card. The Westfield store is fabulous. Everything is shiny, new, stylish and the choice of products is huge. While I was there, I had a file and polish in the Nails Inc. nail bar, part of the beautiful salon complex (shown above). There is also a hair salon, and brow bar which mean you can get pampered while you shop.
My technician was really friendly and she started by filing my nails into a nice rounded shape while we gossiped. I am ashamed to say my nails were not in very good condition at all before my visit. They tend to be quite flakey and break easily. No long talons for me at the moment.
A Kensington Caviar Base Coat was applied which nourishes the nails and leaves them ready for polish.
The colour I chose was called Little Venice (£10.50), and although it is described as a pale apricot, we all agreed that it is the colour of candy floss. It is bright and modern without being too brash. I have been a little bit addicted to pink recently, so this matched my mood perfectly.
To finish, the nail technician applied a Kensington Caviar Top Coat which can add an extra two days to the finish. It also gives a high gloss shine and locks in the colour. Then a drop of cuticle oil to each finger, and I was done. Here is the result...

If you get in there quick, In Style magazine currently have a free 10ml Nails Inc. polish on the cover of their June issue. I say go for the 'Bare' colour which is perfect for laid back, summer chic.
