Nails Inc x Velveeta ‘La Dolce Velveeta’ Duo – Swatches & Review

YES I BOUGHT THE CHEESE POLISH. Yes, you’re seeing the photos correctly, you’re reading all of these words correctly.If you haven’t seen the announcement, Nails Inc collaborated with Velveeta. A cheese product. So let’s discuss.

Now what is Velveeta? It’s so hard to describe to someone who’s never heard of it or tried it. It’s described as a “processed cheese product” and it comes in this brick and it’s kind of jiggly and it’s definitely somewhat cheesy but also just interesting. Just a cheese log basically. It’s kind of creamy, you can feel the processing, but it wasn’t horrible.

As a Midwestern kid who was raised on Velveeta just melted on every vegetable, (listen I would eat straight up slices of this bad boy too, it was the culture, the lifestyle) I had to get this duo. A Velveeta expert had to weigh in here.

So yes Nails Inc decided this was the next collaboration and listen, I’m not mad. I love a bizarre, off the wall collab. And clearly this was to get people talking and it WORKED. This is still my most viewed Instagram story and one of my most liked photos. The people were interested. Especially when they heard it was promised to be cheese scented. We were all ready for the true review, someone had to do it for the people.

This comes in their standard duo packaging, featuring of course 2 polishes. It features the Velveeta logo across both the packaging and the bottle, with a cheese dripping graphic on the caps. It’s gorgeous all around, incredible so far. And it’s still in stock on the Nails Inc website for $15.

Nails Inc ‘Naked in Neon’ Set – Swatches & Review

Whooo boy I went a little dark there for a while (okay like a month). I can’t explain it, I just apparently needed to not blog for a while, but now we’re catching up so that’s right you’re getting like 9 posts over the next two days. You know, that feeling when you don’t feel like doing anything for a couple weeks, and then suddenly you have the motivation to bring the blog back up to speed. We have to ride this motivation as long as it lasts.

This is also a good place to plug my Instagram (always linked at the end of posts as well), as I always post swatches there first even if the full blog posts aren’t finished. But enough rambling, we have posts to catch up on!!

So summer may be winding down, but of course, there’s still some posts about neons to look at. It’s still warm down here, so event though I’m very ready to wear some sweaters and drink pumpkin spice lattes, summer isn’t over yet. Let’s look at some neons I wore!

I always said I’m not that much of a seasonal polish wearer, and wear any color you want any time of the year, but dang, did this summer heat have me craving ALL of the neons. I know, groundbreaking. In this first review we’re looking at the Nails Inc Naked in Neon set. I had seen swatches of this from other lovely creators I follow and lord, I could not resist, it just looked so beautiful. And I’m so glad I didn’t.

This retails for $22 on the Nails Inc and Sephora websites for 4 of their full sized nails polishes – keep in mind their individual polishes can retail for $15 each, so this is a pretty solid deal all around.

It features 3 bright neons and one neutral beige cream. Let’s get into the swatches already, as these beauties basically speak for themselves!

Nails Inc ‘Self Made Mermaid’ Duo

It’s been storming here lately so much, and I’ve been LOVING it. It’s perfect for staying inside, listening to the rain hit the window, and swatching like a mad man. I got a lot of photos taken this weekend of products, so I’m testing out so many things, and I can’t wait to review them all for you.

In this post, I’m talking about a duo from Nails Inc! If you’re at all involved in the polish world like I am, you’ll have seen these duos popping up and being talked about all over. And after I saw the two polishes in this one, I knew I had to pick up this one to try first.

These retail for $15 for the two polishes – a deal considering one is normally $15 on its own. And you can buy them through Sephora, so you can get the points through there if you have them. They have quite a few duos out, but this was the one I wanted to test out first. Let’s get on into the post!
