Nails Inc. Belgrave Place


Belgrave Place was a longtime lemming for me... one that I thought would remain unfulfilled due to the limited availability of Nails Inc in the US. Thankfully there's a beautiful little thing called ebay! I first tried this polish as a pedicure and for whatever reason (maybe I skipped a base coat that week?) it barely lasted 24 hours without chipping when normally I can make it over a week with a chip free pedi. Because of this, I was VERY hesitant to use this color as a NOTD, especially when I was going to a musical festival that weekend and wouldn't have time to change colors - but it just went so well with my outfits. I threw caution to the wind and went ahead with it - color me impressed!

Day 5 on this manicure, included two days at a rainy outdoor musical festival

it still appears to be nearly perfect! I'm quite taken with this formula and plan on purchasing a few more Nails Inc in the near future, not to mention Belgrave Place is everything I wanted the color to be... it's a BRIGHT blue with just a hint of purple. I have many colors that are similar, but no where near being dupes, a totally unique color in my book.

That's a really lovely shade of blue on you. I think there's many amazing looking shades by this brand. I've never shopped ebay so I wouldn't know who to trust.

I've just bought a bottle of this from someone's blog sale. And I'm glad as it looks gorgeous!

Augusta - the some close color I can think of off the top of my head are ChG Bermuda Breakaway - which is too blue and too dark, OPI Sapphire in the Snow/Zoya Pinta - which is a bit too purple and much too dark... the real beauty in this one is that it's both dark and bright somehow, hard to explain... the others are all lovely and among my favorites, but they aren't close to dupes.
