Review of Nails Inc. Baker Street by felgoj
Baker Street, you beautiful thing! Why hasn't a listing for you been started before?
I own several Nails Inc polishes, mostly the glitter ones b/c their glitter quality/density is really excellent. What I hate most about this brand is the $9.50 price, but it's the same price as OPI & Sephora-OPI so the splurge for something blingy is worth it when other brands don't have exact dupes of what you want (that's the case here).
Baker Street is a gorgeous, bright, neon cobalt/royal blue creme that's opaque in 1 coat. It applies smooth & rich, which prevents any dreaded streaking or cuticle flooding. But the 2nd coat can be goopy, so I have to be careful or just forgo it altogether.
This hot color has been out of stock @ the local Sephora stores for a while, so in the meantime I collected a bunch of similar blue cremes which are pretty in their own right but none of them match the shade & brightness of Baker St. Finally, I landed this color last wk & am wearing it now - beautiful, bright, gorgeous, unique. It's not a flat blue & doesn't darken or change color after applying topcoat like some other blues I have (that's you, Pure Ice French Kiss...though you're still beautiful as a medium navy).
LA Girl Disco Brites 'Deejay' is a close & very pretty second (great price for $2.50), but there's no match for Baker Street that I've seen yet. It's worth buying even if you already have a lot of blues like me. It's absolutely eye catching & unusual, & it's not so loud like a neon pink/orange - it attracts attention but doesn't make you feel self-conscious or obvious.
