Nails Inc 2-in-1 Colour & Pop Art - Nails do Modern Art!

Nails Inc 2 in 1 Colour and Pop Art, £14 each
Sheraton Street & Cavendish Place (blue)
Angel & Upper Street (pink)

About five years ago I passed my A-Level in Art and Design (perpetual student) and as part of my coursework I studied some of the major artists in the Pop Art movement. One of my favourites was Lichtenstein, I loved how he created cartoon like images using coloured pixels, so effective and vibrant. So you can imagine my excitement when Nails Inc announced the release of their new Modern Art Collection including Pop Art, my interest was most definitely piqued!!!

You can always rely on Nails Inc to come up with something new and exciting in the world of nails and at £14 (for a 2 in 1) I don't think it's too expensive for something a little bit different. The collection consists of three shades of varnish accompanied by a coordinating pixel like glitter, great for experimenting with different nail varnish effects, a must for all you nail addicts out there! Apply the colour first, I found I only need two coats for a good even coverage. When the base colour is dry then it's time to have fun with the 'Pop Art' end of the duo. I'm really liking the idea of an accent nail at the moment but it would look equally as good on the tips or go for the full cover on every nail, it's great when there are no hard and fast rules to follow, just release your 'inner modern artist'.

I loved these two shades Angel & Upper Street and Sheraton Street & Cavendish Place as they echo the pastel colours that are very popular at the moment. The pink is a very pretty wearable shade but I think the blue is particularly lovely especially with the combination of black, white, blue and silver pixels. To view the full range in the Modern Art Collection click on the link here, you might also want to check out Knightsbridge Place & Sloane Street, a bright pink with coordinating pixels in pinks, blue and white.

As I've already said, these varnishes are a definite MUST HAVE for any nail addicts, a valuable addition to our already bulging collections that you really don't want to miss. It will be interesting to see if Nails Inc add anymore colours to the range, maybe some primary red, yellow and blues, reminiscent of Lichtenstein's original work, I'll let you know if I hear anything on that subject.
