My NOTDs of the week Part 1 featuring Nails Inc Leather Effect Noho

This week, I wore so many different manis, that I decided to split my weekly summary in two parts. My most wonderful friend Antonella brought back some awesome nailpolish for me from London. One of them being a lemming of mine ever since it's release: Nails Inc Noho - the black leather effect polish. Frankly I was not in the mood to go all black on my nails so I went just a tad Skittelette mad:

Skittelette No 1

Ingredients (from left):
Opi Solitaire, Hare Polish Own Your Opulence, Nfu Oh Mor 04, Nails Inc Leather Effect Noho

Picture above taken in artificial light (see the Leather Effect???)

Pinkie: two coats of Opi Solitaire
Ring: two coats of Nfu Oh Mor 04, one coat of Hare Polish Own Your Opulence
all other fingers: two coats of Nails Inc Leather Effect Noho 

Skittelette No 2

Ingredients (from left):
Sinful Colors Mint Apple (another gift from Antonella), Opi Cajun Shrimp (received from wonderful Radha from The Polish Owl), Nails Inc Leather Effect Noho

Pinkie: two coats of Sinful Colors Mint Apple
Ring: two coats of Opi Cajun Shrimp
on all others: Nails Inc Leather Effect Noho

And I just had to add another picture of this mani as in the below daylight photo Mint Apple is perfectly captured - this is what it looks IRL

Skittlette No 3

Ingredients (from left):
Nails Inc Leather Effect Noho, Cult Nails Tempest, Glitter Gal Pink Zinc, Sinful Colors Blue By You (yet another gift from Antonella - see how much I got spoilt?)

Pinkie: two coats of Nails Inc Leather Effect Noho
Ring and middle: two coats of Cult Nails Tempest, sponged blotches of Glitter Gal Pink Zinc and Sinful Colors Blue By You and then randomly stamped with A England Camelot to create a haphazard abstract pattern
Index and Thumb: two coats of Sinful Colors Blue By You

Few facts about Nails Inc Leather Effect Noho: super easy to apply, drying time a bit longer than the Opi Liquid Sand polishes, wear excellent, removal is so far the easiest of all textured polishes I tried, probably because it got no glitter particles in it.

What would you have picked to combine Nails Inc Leather Effect Noho with?

I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for visiting!!!


  1. You create the best skittlettes, sis! I love sponged and stamped nails with the different finishes of the blue and black. Noho looks super cool with Mint Apple and Cajun Shrimp, too-- I love the slightly atypical color combo, it looks like a shirt or a dress I'd love to wear.

    1. Hi Liesl, thank you!!! It was so much fun to do those Skittelettes and haven't I seen a wide skirt you wore for a party some months ago on your Blog that would resemble the colors I used in my second Skittelette??? Have a wonderful day xxx

  2. Oooooo! You did some stamping!! Very nice!! :D I love that Sinful polish!! Must have it!!! :P
    The Leather Effect is really cool!! Must get that next time I'm in London!! Your beautiful posts will make me poor ;) lol! Take care pet!! Puss!! xxx
