Nails Inc The Editors Collection Swatches



The Editors Collection gift set is described as a "perfect stocking filler" - fittingly, I got my own on Christmas Day. It's a limited edition collection that seems to have flown out of the high street stores fairly quickly, and for good reason. I love everything in this box! 

The collection is packaged in a silver glittery box and includes mini bottles of the following shades:
  • Chelsea Embankment (gold glitter polish)
  • South Kensington (silver foil polish)
    • Marylebone Lane (red glitter polish)
    • Porchester Square (taupe/mushroom polish)
    • Park Lane Mews (deep red polish)

    Here's what they look like on (two coats for each shade):

    L-R: CHELSEA EMBANKMENT, SOUTH KENSINGTON
    Chelsea Embankment is probably my favourite of the two glitters - I didn't need a base coat as it gave such good coverage. It is quite a yellow gold so it might be a bit loud outside of the party season, but it works really well as an accent nail (which is how I'm currently wearing it). South Kensington is a lovely, sleek silver foil - great coverage with very little effort.

    L-R: MARYLEBONE LANE, PORCHESTER SQUARE, PARK LANE MEWS

    As far as I can tell, Marylebone Lane and Park Lane Mews are shades exclusive to The Editors. The former is a ruby red glitter with a similar formula to Chelsea Embankment, but probably needs a base coat to really set it off. Park Lane Mews is a dark red that appears slightly plummy in certain lights. It's nothing groundbreaking, but classic and wearable nonetheless. And finally, Porchester Square - it's a best-seller for a reason. It's a taupe/mushroom polish (I think it even looks slightly lilac but that doesn't really come through in this photo), and it's fantastic. You could wear it with anything!

    The collection looks very festive when displayed together, but the shades themselves are fairly safe all year round - how wrong can you really go with red or gold? This would also be a great gift for someone who only owns a few nail polishes, or a present to yourself if you're looking to quickly build up your collection with some basics!


    You can still get The Editors Collection on the nails inc. website for £10 or on ASOS for £16. Not quite sure about the reason for the price difference, but as nails inc. charge a pretty penny for delivery it might still be worth checking out ASOS.
