Notting Hill Gate | NOTD

I received Nails Inc Notting Hill Gate in my Nail Polish Diary at Christmas time. The shade was launched in 2012 as a hot 'vibrant neon pink shade'.

One coat is on the left hand side of the wheel and you can see that it's fairly unimpressive. It's definitely not a 'one coat wonder'. With two coats you get a bit more coverage, but for me personally I think you need three to get the true bright colour you see in the bottle. It's a very sheer formula, you need to be patient with it to get a nice colour.

Surprisingly, the colour is quite matt to the eye, it's not a high gloss finish. It's definitely a hot pink shade, but to me it doesn't scream neon. Which is not necessarily a bad thing, but if you're looking for a bright highlighter pink, this isn't the one. The matt finish is  easily fixed with a glossy topcoat though and packs a punch on the nails. Perfect for the summer sun and lovely on holiday with a tan!

Notting Hill Gate retails for £11 in a variety of places, including at Nails Inc online here
