Neons and Nudes by nails inc.

A few months ago while hunting down my favorite facial products at Sephora, I felt compelled to purchase summery nail polish for the season. Neons and Nudes 6 sample collection by nails inc. screamed at me:

I enjoy the softness of nudes and brilliance of neons so this nails inc. pack just. makes. sense. Or so I thought.

Sigh... writing this review makes me sad. I love these colors and the nails inc. palette in general so the fact that the nail polish is a fail bums me out. First, the polish is sheerer than I expected so I need to add an extra coat. And for those of you who are sticklers about getting the most for your money (so... all of us) that means your dollars aren't going as far since you'll be using it up faster. 

Even with a base coat and three coats of polish and a top coat of the pink, my manicure started chipping the next day. Just to make sure I wasn't crazy, I also tried the yellow and the same thing happened. However, my pedicure lasted a good week so perhaps I'll save these polishes for toes only.

Overall, nails inc. is dead to me. They keep tempting me with new colors and it's cruel.
