NOTD - Nails Inc Kensington Park Road and Superdrug nail stencils

Important news: Nails Inc have invented a nail polish the exact colour of blue Smarties. 

Through what must have been hours of painstaking drop-by-drop matching work, the Kensington Park Road polish from their Neon collection contains the exact tiny hint of green needed to make a routine mid-blue creme into this unmistakable chocolate-connoting shade. Unfortunately my camera has washed this tiny hint of green straight out again, but I promise - it's there.

The other point of this NOTD is to show you the effects you can get with Superdrug's new nail stencils

They're small stickers you put on nails, either over a base coat or (as shown here) on top of a dried coat of polish. You then sweep a single coat in a contrasting shade over the top, allow to dry for a few seconds, then peel off the stencil and finish with a clear top coat. They also work with nail glitter - you paint clear polish over the stencil, add your glitter, then peel and reveal.

This one is raindrops, and there's also a heart version. You get 10 stencils for £1.99, and don't quote me on this, but I reckon you could squeeze more than one go-round out of them if you peel them off with care and re-adhere to the backing sheet.
