Nails Inc Sugar House Lane

Tonight I have Nails Inc Sugar House Lane to show you; this is the second of the "Sprinkles" polishes I've purchased (see Pudding Lane here). 


This one is a strange mix... small black and white glitter in a taupe/putty base. Very odd. The formula was good, and this covered in two coats, but I think I prefer Pudding Lane over this one. I think the blue base in Pudding Lane really made the glitter pop; in this case, I think the taupey base colour just looks a little too muddy for my liking. Not that it's bad! I still love the jelly sandwich-esque look, it just doesn't wow me as much as yesterday's shade. 


Unlike Pudding Lane, Sugar House Lane (the actual location is in Newham, a borough of London) doesn't seem to have any particular associations with major historic events, although it was a site of intense industrial growth from the 18th century on. And that's my random tidbit of information about today's Nails Inc namesake!


What do you think of Nails Inc Sugar House Lane? Do you like it better than Pudding Lane?

    1. I think I prefer the ones with brighter colours, but this gets points for uniqueness!

  5. When I saw this in person when picking up Sweets Way and Pudding Lane, I passed on it because the color was a little off for me. It looks great on you though!

  6. It it definitely different... I like Pudding lane better, despite its saddening backstory. I think this one is too salt and pepper on mashed potatoes for me. Though, I can imagine it making a phenomenal appearance on some designs!! =)

    1. "Salt and pepper on mashed potatoes"- that's exactly it! I really kind of feel the same way about it. It's so strange!
