Today I'm continuing on with Texture Week by showing you a polish that I've had for quite some time but that I never got around to swatching/wearing until now.
Nails Inc. Noho is one of the Leather Effect polishes and I actually purchased this back in late January when I went on a small vacation. It was one of the top things on my to-buy list and I was so excited when I arrived in Sephora and saw that there was one left. Yet now it's basically May and it's been sitting in my to-swatch bin ever since! Mo polish, mo problems. That's how the song goes, right? Sure.
Anyways, Noho comes in a kit called Bling It On: Rebel that contains the polish (obviously), a few different varieties of rhinestones and studs, four crystallized skulls, a bottle of nail glue as well as a couple of orange wood sticks. I probably could have done without the glue, sticks, rhinestones and studs, but I'm really loving the little skulls. Luckily they're reusable so you don't have to throw them out after using them in a mani.
The formula of Noho was really great, albeit a little thinner than I was expecting. And it does take a few minutes to dry down and achieve that full leather effect. Speaking of the leather effect, I think it's pretty rad looking. It's subtle, especially from a distance, but still super cool. It's designed to be worn without top coat, which is how I've shown it to you here.
Now that I've worn this, I have no idea how I've allowed it to sit in my to-swatch bin for so long. Shame on me. Shame, shame, shame. This is an awesome polish and I'm so glad that I have it in my collection. I also just added the other two Leather Effect polishes (Soho Mews and Shoreditch Lane) to my wishlist. I'll definitely need to get my hands on those asap.
As far as I know, Noho isn't sold individually, so you need to purchase the whole Bling It On: Rebel kit. The kit is available at Sephora for $25 in the US and $30 in Canada.
Well you know that I'm just smitten with this polish, and with textured polishes in general, really. What about you?
