One of my favorite nail brands, Nails Inc., has come up with yet another beauty innovation – spray on nail polish. This cutting edge brand has created Paint Can and promises that it is the fastest manicure around boasting a 20-second dry time. It’s awfully cute in a graffiti artist kind of way. It is called Nails Inc. Paint Can it comes in two colors, Shoreditch Lane (silver) and Hoxton Market (pink) and with such adorably British names, it’s important to note that this product is not yet available for sale in the US (March 2016) and it has sold out in the UK. At this point, only US beauty insiders (editors) have been able to test the product. Allure’s Jenna Rosenstein was lucky enough to get a hold of the product and her review includes an informative tutorial as well as tips on how to use the product.
Nails Inc. has already started a waitlist for the US launch date and without trying the product my feeling is; at $17 a pop, it’s expensive and wasteful. The online tutorials show more product on the hands and surrounding areas than on the nails and the 20-second drying time doesn’t include the drying time for the top and base coats. Neither color, in my opinion, is flattering to my skin tone, or even in colors that I would wear independently.Then there is the issue of the product being inhaled and washed down the sink. However, I can see its use and entertainment value for nail art. (I am already visualizing how this can be utilized). So unless I find myself with a product sample – and I won’t – I will just have to wait until March like everybody else to see if this is indeed an innovation or a waste of money.
I created StylEnigma in 2014 to celebrate the beauty of individuality and creative personal expression. I love the idea of being a canvas and expressing myself by transforming into the embodiment of my mood or the mood I want to be in. I am fascinated by different beauty and style standards, and fashion instinctively incorporates both. I’ve written for decades and use writing as a form of education, but I haven’t had the time or mental capacity to dedicate to my project for a long time and I’m anxious to get back to creating content about the beauty of individuality.
I’ve never been into cliques or trends because I’ve always believed that personal style supersedes trends. I’ve never been a follower or stressed about being liked because I learned at an early age that you’ll never please everyone, so you might as well be yourself. Of course, that doesn’t come without its challenges. We should celebrate uniqueness more.
I love dark colors like black and midnight blue. I own so much black clothing I’ve been accused of being in a perpetual state of mourning. I love nail art; in fact, I started this blog because of a Nailasaurus nail art post, and before that, I owned a nail and skincare salon. I have a major collection of nail art images I have never posted, which is shameful. However, I’m going to rectify that character flaw by sharing my nail art journey.
As a lupus patient, I am also learning how to make ADHD work for me (a factor in post shortages) and it is challenging. I am also learning how to create and edit videos, using Vine product reviews as the testing ground.
Thanks for hanging in there with me,
As it goes, I just googled it and they had 1 more silver left in stock at Selfridges so I purchased it. It was originally £10 but was on sale for £5 so I picked up a pretty good bargain. Hopefully I’ll like it 🙂
