Nails Inc: Baker Street

There's a little tale to tell about this nail polish -

I've recently realised I have a new colour obsession - cobalt blue - as the colour was appearing more and more in my wardrobe. Of course that meant I had to have THE perfect cobalt blue polish to complement the wardrobe.  And the perfect cobalt blue polish is....Nails Inc Baker Street! So, I order it online, the order is invoiced when the seller realizes it's...OUT OF STOCK!!! My mood goes from excitement to frustration and then I must WAIT another two weeks. 

Well, finally it's mine and yes it's the blue I dreamt of, the blue I really didn't have, the blue I HAD to have.  A true cobalt blue creme and soooo hard to capture accurately.  I've colour corrected the hell out of this and I still don't think I've done it justice.  Just trust me on this one, okay!  It really is up there if you're a cobalt-obsessed person like me!!

What's your current colour obsession?

  1. As I'm reading this I'm about to pop essie 'Butler Please' on my nails. It's not as bright as Baker Street, but definitely a similar tone. I will have to check this one out when my spending ban is over! Great swatches :-)

    1. I'd never say you were crazy! I have some similar metallic shades I've posted but not the cremes though. I think that's what you've seen?

  9. Gorgeous shade! LOVE royal blue! I think my fave would definitely have to be fuchsia. I'm just constantly attracted to that shade!

    1. Thank you Nalini xo

      I don't get colour obsessed as much these days (cos my collection is pretty out of control!) but I have to say this was a huge obsession for me and I'm glad I've now got it!

  11. I'm SO happy that you have this polish! I think it's the best blue ever. I know that YSL and Essie both have new shades out right now that are very similar to this, but Baker Street has the best formulation AND sits at a nice price range as well. Try putting it on your toes - you'll stare at your feet all day long. :D
