Ever had your post mis-delivered? I have and all too often. The entrance to my flat is so difficult to find that new post men or delivery drivers tend to deliver to the flat upstairs and ignore the sign I have written giving directions to my door.
This slightly boring intro brings me to my point, my neighbour is moving out and came around earlier to hand over a pile of very dusty mail. Amongst the unwanted credit card and gas bills was a little package containing nail polish! What a surprise it was to find that the lovely people at HJ Manicure had sent me some polish, albeit a long time ago (thank you). I will take this opportunity to apologise to them for the delay of this post.
So onto the polish bit. HJ Manicure creates toxic free, vegan friendly, cruelty free & 5-free polishes. Their bottles are large (containing 15ml of product) which makes them very cost effective. I was sent 2 polishes for review, Strawberry Daiquiri and Candy Pink. The bottles of these are so unique and a great shape to hold when painting. The top is a good size and the brush is long and thin, which makes it perfect for nails of all shapes.
Strawberry Daiquiri is a stunningly bright red creme. It does remind me of strawberries, so much so that if it contained small black glitters I would think that it contained real crushed fruit. The formula of this polish is one of the best I have tried, it's smooth and applies so easily. I could go on and on about the amazingness of this polish but it can only be believed by trying it out yourself. Suffice to say it has now beaten Butter London's Pillar Box Red to top red polish spot. I used 2 coats and a topcoat for the photo below.
Candy Pink is a fun bright pink creme. Again the formula was incredible, I really wish all polishes had a formula of this quality. I used 2 coats and a topcoat for the photos below.
I can not pick a favourite from the 2 I was sent and that says a lot as any pink polish would usually win above a red. It's the quality of strawberry daiquiri that can't be beaten, making it my fave red polish of all time.
These polishes are available to buy from HJ Manicure's website for £9.50 each. This is a brand I would highly recommend to any nail polish user as the quality is well above the price tag. Go and grab yours now before they realise!
