Okay, so this is the third shade from the Nails Inc Leather collection, launching in December. I think you can see tht actually it does take on a leathery look – it’s not exact, and I think it would look better in black but I really do love the effect. It feels almost a bit sandy on the nail but doesn’t catch – it’s perfectly smooth. 

It’s helpful to put the texture next to the leather effect lid of the polishes and you can see it’s pretty close. 


I’ve added some gold studs on (from Hailthenails) not in any particular precision way but just to show how well some embellishments go on top of the leather effect. It’s very fiddly to do..so that’s why there’s only one finger!

I’m really keen on this effect and think I will like it even better in black. I can see my nails literally becoming an accessory for my black lace half gloves.
