Nails Inc new spring / summer 2013 collections - textures and embellishments

You all know how much of a fan I am of Nails Inc, so I'm not going to lie about how excited I was to go along and see their new ranges for next year.  I was so impressed - it wasn't just about new shades for the season - all of the polishes had something special and completely different about them.  The focus of the ranges was on different textures and embellishments, and there were some really exciting and creative new ideas on show.


The feather effect polishes are just beautiful and I love the concept - they're made up of loads and loads strands of multi-coloured glitter.  I can't wait to get my hands on them when they're released in March, which luckily for me is my birthday month!  These will be £11 each.


I was surprised to see Nails Inc's first ever collection of press on nails.  They're pretty spectacular as they all have nail art pre-applied and they use real swaovski and are called crystaltastic.  These will be £20 each and they also come out in March.  I love the beige nails with the intricate white snowflake type pattern.


I wasn't so sure about the leather effect polishes until I saw that they come in a pack with some amazing embellishments.  I'm not usually a fan of skulls, but I make an exception for gold and silver sparkly skulls.  These skulls are re-useable too.  These kits will be £25 each, or you can buy the polishes individually for £12 each.  These will also be out in March.


You might recognise these bling it on sets as I blogged about the bling it on rocks set here.  The bling it on neon is the same concept (a base colour polish, lots of sparkly loose glitter to cover it in, and a top coat)  but in some amazingly bright and sparkly colours for summer.  This will be out in May and it costs £20.


Bling it on feathers is the same concept again, but instead of fine round glitter, it's long strands similar to the feather effect polishes I mentioned earlier.  I really like the beige sparkly glitter that comes in this kit - it feels like such a classy take on glitter.  These will also be £20.


These concrete effect polishes dry to a heavily textured effect, like concrete.  They also remind me of a painted wall, unless you have super smooth walls of course!  These are out in December for £12 each.  I got to take home the nude colour (London Wall) to try out, so I'll swatch that soon. 


This denim effect polish took me by surprise - in the bottle it looks like a shimmery blue metalic polish, but after applying two coats and waiting 30 seconds, it turns to a realistic looking denim finish.  I'm really not sure how they do that - Nails Inc magic!  This polish will come in a set with silver star embellishments for £19, and it'll be out in June.


These mini polish kits give you a feel for the new shades to expect for Spring and Summer from Nails Inc.  I think the mint green (Royal Botanical Gardens) and the peachy salmon pink (Kensington Palace Gardens) are my favourites.  This kit will be available from March and it's £22.


Despite all of the very exciting new polishes on display, the thing I'm most desperate to try is this new top coat!  It's a gel effect top coat that's supposed to plump up your polish and give that perfect look you would usually only get from gel nails done at a salon.  I've been dreaming of a product like this and I really hope it lives up to my expectations.  Luckily I only need to wait until January for this one to come out.  It'll be £12 and there's also a new Kensington Caviar base coat coming out too, which is called flawless and is an ultra fast drying and smoothing base.  

Which of these new collections are you most excited for?
