I just tried the Backstage Collection from Nails Inc. London and I’m impressed. This collection has three colors: Abby Road, Stratford, and Porchester Square. These are full size bottles – unlike the sample size bottles that you’d find in most collections.
Porchester Square is a neutral color. I applied two coats of polish over my base coat; however you can get coverage with one coat. The polish is nice and shiny but I still applied a top coat for protection. The polish lasted a week with no chips, just normal wear.
Stratford is a mirror metallic polish with a chameleon shimmer. The color changes from gold to pinks to greens when you move your fingers or hand. I applied two coats of polish over my base coat along with a top coat for extra protection. You could probably get total coverage with one coat, as the polish is on the thicker side. The polish lasted a week with normal wear on the tips but no chips.
Abbey Road is a silver polish with a holographic effect. This color required two coats to achieve total coverage. The holographic effect became more prominent after I applied my top coat. The polish lasted well over a week with no wear or chips. I just love a polish that holds up like this one did!
The Backstage Collection is a great assortment of colors and special effects. If you’re in a rush and can’t take the time to apply two coats of color you can use either Stratford or Porchester Square for a quick one coat cover. If you have the time for two coats than try Abbey Road – this polish is so long lasting!...
