Nails inc. in Brook St nail polish

In my March’s GlossyBox beauty box I received a nails inc. mini nail polish in the color Brook St.

It’s a soft pink coral shade.

I’m just now wearing it this weekend and the mini size nail polish is perfect to use if you’re using the colors for your accent nails.

Brook St. is the perfect pop-out shade especially if you’re pairing it with nude nail polish shades.

I’m pairing the nails inc. Brook St nail polish with Zoya’ s Taylor from the Zoya Spring 2014 Naturel collection.  I have on two coats of each color on my fingernails.

This photo was taken without the flash so you could see the true colors.

These were taken with the flash.

In good ol’ sunny Florida this weekend,  the nails inc. Brook St nail polish really stood out in the sun.

I’m seriously loving this color.

Plus, I love the fact that I can get mini’s in nails inc. polishes just for my accent nails.  That way I don’t have to waste the nail polish or my money.

Spring and summer times are the perfect times to rock the coral shades.

You can purchase the nails inc. mini nail polishes at Sephora, ULTA Beauty, and Boots.

Are you gonna be rocking out some coral nail polishes this season?
