So Neal Street, is a thick, greeny/turquoise polish that applies pretty true to the colour in the bottle. It applied quite well, with not too much glooping or bubbling, and although I could've got away with a single coat if I'd been in a hurry, I used two. However, this is a matte polish, although it doesn't say so on the bottle anywhere. I didn't like the effect of the matte polish, it was just too dull, and didn't work at all well with the colour, so I painted over it with a glossy top coat, which worked perfectly! I find that Nails Inc polishes are notoriously bad at chipping, so it would definitely need a topcoat anyway.

I liked the colour, nice and bright, but not too over-the-top. Unfortunately, it didn't stop my work problems, but it did cheer me up a bit! The downside is, it chipped after 1 day, and tip-wear also started after one day. In the photos it doesn't look so bad, but my other hand was awful, and I've tried to hide the thumb of my left hand in the photos, as it chipped beyond belief! The photos were taken after 3 days.
I'm not bowled over by Nails Inc polishes. I love their colours and the concept, but their staying power is quite bad, especially as they're not a cheap and cheerful brand. I was also annoyed with this polish, as it didn't say it was matte anywhere.
Thanks for reading! xx
