Availability: I ordered my bottle of Sweets Way from Feel Unique, which provides FREE worldwide delivery. I know, it’s pretty wonderful. Only those of you who live in the UK you can order directly from Nails Inc. as they do not provide international shipping at the moment. If you live in the US and Canada you can find this and other Nails Inc. products at Sephora. For more information on where you can find Nails Inc. products elsewhere click here.
My Two Cents: Sweets Way is described as being white with pastel blue, pink & silver glitter and I think it looks amazing. I was a little apprehensive because it is so light and it has pink in it, but somehow, it just works. It really did remind me of vanilla frosted cupcakes with sprinkles on top the more I looked at it. Perhaps the most incredible thing about this nail polish was the fact that it has been hands down the easiest glitter polish for me to remove. I used Butter London Powder Room remover and allowed pieces of remover soaked cotton balls to sit on my nails for a few minutes before attempting removal, which is my method of choice for removing glitter. Usually even using this method of removal I find I still have to do a fair bit of rubbing, but that simply was not the case with Sweets Way.
The one fault I found was that it just didn’t hold up well with prolonged wear. If I remember correctly, I experienced very minor chipping the second day and significantly more by day three. With that said though, I am in love with Sweets Way and I plan to pick up at least two more from the Sprinkles collection if not all three. In case you were wondering, there are four shades all together in the collection. Pudding Lane – teal with navy and gold glitter, Sugar House Lane – pastel grey with monotone glitter, and Topping Lane – pink with cerise, purple and silver glitter.
Tips: Be sure to use a good base and top coat to help extend the life of your manicure and definitely go for that second coat if not a third.
Something Similar: There really isn’t anything like Sweets Way at the moment sadly. You could achieve a similar look by layering a milky white polish over a mixture of pink, blue and silver glitter though.

Some things that you can look for this month are some more brush reviews, Sugarpill product reviews, a his & hers gift guide, and maybe even one for dogs. My apologies to my readers that are cat lovers, but I wouldn’t even know where to start where cats are concerned since my home is guarded by a team of rather adorable rascally Olde English Bulldogges. As always, thanks for reading and check back soon.
