British Brand Cabinet


Nails Inc. Knightsbridge Road – I no longer have this; I returned it to the shop. After seeing it swatched on one of my nail wheels the other day, I do have regrets… but I’ve bought many more bottles of this brand and plan to add to my Nails Inc. collection lots this summer of 2014!

Update, Nov 2014: I recently repurchased Knightsbridge Road at a deep discount due to Nails Inc. changing their bottles + formula. 🙂
