I am such an idiot. I only took two photos of this polish whilst I was wearing it, and it wasn’t until I’d taken it off that I realised this. IDIOT. I would have dearly loved to slap it back on, but I desperately needed to cut my nails down as I’d broken 3 nails on the other hand really low down so needed a trim to make them a little more even. Siiigh.
Even so, with only two pictures you can still appreciate how BLOODY LOVELY this is. Brick Lane is one of Nails Inc’s new Graffiti collection polishes. When I saw this, I immediately HAD to have it. If you’re at all familiar with the indie polish scene, you are probably aware of a VERY hard to find polish named Sticks ‘n Stones by an indie brand called Cover Band. I have been lemming Sticks ‘n Stones for the LONGEST time but it’s next to impossible to get hold of. I hoped that Brick Lane would be a dupe. It’s not, but it’s definitely the next best thing.
Both Sticks ‘n Stones and Brick Lane are comprised of black and white hex and bar glitters suspended in a clear base, but they’re not quite the same. The pieces are smaller in Brick Lane, and the white pieces are a little bit translucent rather than the pure opaque white in Sticks ‘n Stones – but really, that’s nitpicking. It’s definitely a good enough substitute – although if I do ever get the chance to snap up Sticks ‘n Stones you can bet your bottom dollar that I will do so quicker than Felix Baumgartner breaking the sound barrier.
Whilst this is way too wordy and doesn’t have enough pictures, this is still a Polishgasm because I absolutely LOVE IT. So much. Get it. Now. By the way, I’m wearing it over Illamasqua Obsess.
