Nails Inc Black Taxi & Floral Street

Or as I should subtitle this post... "the perfect black and white creme polishes".

White and black polishes seem like something so simple.  They don't seem like something that it would take a person years to find the perfect one of each.  And yet, that's been an issue with me.  For me, a perfect white creme and a perfect black creme have been almost impossible to find.

That was until I received Nails Inc Black Taxi (black) and Nails Inc Floral Street (white).  As I have been showing them off under all sorts of polishes over the past few weeks, I figured I would show you them by themselves.  They really are perfect...

Black Taxi - highly-pigmented, rich black creme.  Like I mentioned above, finding one-coat black creme has been impossible for me.  I've tried several options and have been disappointed with each of them, in one way or another.  Black Taxi, however, is perfect.  The formula flows incredibly well and is completely opaque in one coat. 

Floral Street - white creme.  Like a black creme, a non-chalky, non-streaky white creme has been very hard for me to find.  My issue with whites is that it takes too long to reach opacity.  And while I have yet to find a one-coat white creme, Floral Street is opaque in 2 coats and it doesn't look like you are wearing Wite-Out on your nails.  Like Black Taxi, this one has a very nice formula and flows well on the nails. 

As I've mentioned about 50 times in this post (LOL) Black Taxi and Floral Street are pretty much my perfect black and white cremes.  My only issue with them is that they are a bit expensive at $9.50 for a 0.33 fl oz bottle.  That said, I will gladly pay it in the future, as they are fantastic for what they are.  You can find both of these polishes in the US at Sephora stores and at Sephora.com

Nails Inc Black Taxi and Floral Street were sent to me for review.  The above link links to these polishes on Sephora.com and is not an affiliate link.

I'll have to remember this! I was just complaining last night that I don't have a go-to white polish that gives me good coverage.. I have 3 whites (Revlon, Wet & Wild, and some off brand) but they are all for tips and too streaky/sheer to do a full manicure. Floral Street looks like just what I've been searching for. Thanks!!

Have you tried Milani White on the Spot and Black Swift? I've heard from a lot of people that they're really good but I haven't tried them yet.

For now I've been using Essie Blanc or Sally Hansen Whirlwind White and Wet 'N Wild black creme and Essie Licorice.

I absolutely love black polishes, especially unadorned and with great formulae. A white creme that's actually wearable on its own is tempting, too.
