Nails Inc Rainbow Riot Collection & White Out

Saturday, 27 May 2017

PR Sample

Happy Saturday, hope you're having a lovely evening. I am just about to take myself off to bed, but before I do, I want to show you these gorgeous shades from Nails Inc.


I received these last week and I was blown away, they're everything I love in a polish and I never expected to be reviewing another set of gorgeous Nails Inc polishes this month, especially after blogging about the Nails Inc Spring 2017 Pastels just over a week ago.

26 GNAI - Lilac, Pink & Gold

Friday, 26 May 2017

I can't believe that it's Friday already, let alone another 26 GNAI challenge. I have been excited about this prompt for ages because the colours are right up my street.


For ages I was going to do some mermaid inspired nails, I had a design sketched out in my head and everything and then a couple of weeks ago the Models Own Celestial Collection landed on my doorstep.

Essie Spring 2017 Collection

Thursday, 25 May 2017

PR Sample

Happy Thursday. Today I have a little throwback for you in the form of Essie's Spring 2017 collection. Now I am calling this a 'little throwback' as this collection is still current. it's still for sale and it's still relevant as it's still technically spring (despite everyone now saying it's summer because we've had 2 consecutive days of sun) but it has been around for months hence the throwback.


Now I was kindly sent these but only got 4 out of the 6 polishes that are in this Essie Spring 2017 collection, so I will link them at the end as they're just as gorgeous!

Primark PS Neon Trio

Monday, 22 May 2017

Today I'm back with another of Primark's nail trios. If you haven't seen my review of the Bronze trio, make sure you check it out as those polishes are stunning.


As a neon lover I was so excited to see Primark releasing some staple neon shades. Is it even summer if you haven't worn neon polish? I don't think so! And with these coming in such a handy set and for such a brilliant price, even those who don't like spending too much on seasonal shades can indulge their inner 'neon' lover with these.

Models Own Celestial Collection

Saturday, 20 May 2017

PR Sample

Last Friday I was lucky enough to receive a gorgeous box of goodies from Models Own. If you follow my Instagram account (@thepolishlist), you may have seen my unboxing stories of it, I usually post unboxings on there, so make sure you check daily for sneak peeks of upcoming polish launches.


If you didn't see it (or did and want to know more), read on because this post if full of pastel pictures that are yummy enough to make you drool.

Nails Inc Spring Pastel Collection 2017

Friday, 19 May 2017

PR Sample

A few weeks ago I received a gorgeous parcel from Nails Inc, which included a load of amazing new Spring releases. I did an unboxing on my instagram stories and it honestly felt like Christmas had come early. It was jam packed with so many goodies.


Amongst them were these stunning pastels, you will have seen these in a mani I created for the 26 GNAI - Work Appropriate Nail Art challenge. Sometimes I just get too excited to wait until I've swatched polishes to use them, especially when they're this pretty.

Voesh Pedi In A Box Review

Thursday, 18 May 2017

PR Sample

Today I have a rather intriguing product to show you. A little while ago I was asked if I wanted to try out VOESH's pedi in a box, a 4 step system which aims to give your feet the perfect SPA pamper and I jumped at the chance.


Now don't worry, I'm not going to be showing you my feet in this post, but I am going to tell you about my experience using this system.

Models Own Sofly Collection

Wednesday, 17 May 2017

PR Sample

Models Own's first nail collection of 2017 may have seemed like a long time coming for us die hard polish fans, however it was well worth the wait.


Four long months in and Models Own dropped the news that they had partnered with the one and only Sophy Nails, to produce one hell of a 5 piece.

Jessica Glowing With Love Bridal Collection

Tuesday, 16 May 2017

PR Sample

As the summer approaches, so does wedding season. Now I know that a lot of people get married all throughout the year, however May-August is very popular for weddings.


Along with picking the dress, the venue and the countless other bits and bobs needed for the big day, brides have always been concerned about nailing the little details (see what I did there). For most brides, their nails are as important as their makeup, after all the traditional 'clasped hands with rings on show' shot is usually taken for the photo album and wedding day nails will immortalised in film - forever.

Primark PS Bronze Trio

Monday, 15 May 2017

You all know how much I love Primark and their nail polishes, a job they've been making very easy this year. Recently I was sent their new Prism collection and honestly thought that would be it for newness. How wrong I was.


I first noticed this Bronze trio a few weeks ago and grabbed it immediately. The bright metallics caught my eye and like a magpie I was mesmerised. Since then I have seen 3 more trios (Neon, Nude and French) which I will be showing over the next couple of weeks.

Elliona Gel Off - Gel Polish Removal Product

Sunday, 14 May 2017

PR Sample

Sometimes I get emails from companies that really excite me and when elliona contacted me asking if I would like to try out their at home gel and glitter polish removal product I was very excited.


If any of you have worn a gel manicure, you know how amazing it all is. The instantly dry nails, the never ending shine, the long lasting, chip free colour. Yes it really is a dream. Well that is until it comes to removing the stuff.

SensatioNAIL Express Gel One Step Polish

Saturday, 13 May 2017

PR Sample

Today I have a review of SensatioNAIL's latest product, the one step gel polish. You may remember at the end of March I reviewed a lot of SensatioNAIL's normal, at home DIY polishes. The quality, formula and range of colours are amazing and SensatioNAIL are one of my go to brands when I need an easy and long lasting manicure.


However, there were many steps involved in this system, with the process being identical to that which you'd get at a professional salon. Well since then they've released a one step gel polish, reducing not only the need for the multi step system, but also reducing the need for a separate base coat and a top coat. Sounds perfect!

26 GNAI - Yellow & 1 Bold Colour

Friday, 12 May 2017

Contains PR Samples

Happy Friday, I hope you've all had a great week. I'm glad it's a weekend and I'm even more so that I don't have much planned, I have a lot of swatching to catch up on.


Today I broke the tip on one of my nails, so I've had to file them down quite a bit and they're taking a little getting used too. However I know that in a week or so they'll be looking a bit more normal.

Princess Nail Lacquer Summer 2017 Collection

Thursday, 11 May 2017

PR Sample

Swatching for an indie company is something I feel very honoured to be able to do. I appreciate these small, independently run businesses do not have the same budget as the main stream brands for just handing out polishes willy nilly. You can imagine my surprise and delight then, when I received 3 parcels from Princess Nail Lacquer containing 12 gorgeous polishes.


10 of the polishes made up the new and upcoming Summer 2017 collection and it is those I have to show you today. Be prepared, this is a long post, containing lots of lovely polish pictures.

Primark PS Prism Nail Collection

Wednesday, 10 May 2017

PR Sample

Happy hump day, I hope you're all having a fab week so far. The sunshine has stuck around, but I'm still snuggling up most evenings with a hot water bottle and a mug of hot chocolate (cream topped of course, I'm not a heathen).


Last week I was sent a gorgeous parcel from Primark which contained the 4 polishes from their new Prism collection.

Barry M SS17 Coconut Infusion Nail Paint Collection

Tuesday, 9 May 2017

PR Sample

Happy Tuesday, hope everyone's week has started off on a good note. Yesterday a package landed on my doorstep and inside we're 4 bottles of sunshine.


Barry M have released 10 new nail paints and a cuticle oil so far this year, but it's their summer launches that excite me most.

Essie Turn On The Neon Collection

Sunday, 7 May 2017

PR Sample

Happy Sunday, hope you've all had a great weekend. I've been busy with Hen Do shenanigans and have had a fab couple of days pottery painting, eating Italian food, walking Alpacas and attending a mad hatter/flower crown essential tea-party.  Throughout all of this I still managed to find time to swatch the Essie 2017 Neons.


With the turn in the weather (yes it's finally started to get sunny), it seems like the perfect time to whip out some brights.


Monthly Favourites - April 2017

Tuesday, 2 May 2017

As I sit here and write this post I can hardly believe that April is over, mainly due to these 2 reasons;
1. Because it's flipping flown by!!
2. Because I'm sat cuddled up in a blanket, with the heating on full and outside it's gray, wet and freezing.


Surely May heralds the start of warmer times, the onset of summer and the month in which we can get serious about wearing lighter clothes and maybe even leave our coats at home. I don't know what kind of 'Day After Tomorrow' craziness is going on with our weather but I want it to stop - now!

26 GNAI - Work Appropriate Nail Art

Sunday, 30 April 2017

PR Sample

These 26 GNAI challenges are cropping up more and more quickly and I actually nearly missed this one as I had left it off my planner. Luckily I saw lots of gorgeous designs cropping up on my facebook page which jogged my memory. Oh and I've also written all future designs in my planner so fingers crossed I won't forget another one.


Today I wanted to do 2 things, test out the new Nails Inc Long Wear Spring Pastel colours that I was sent and use some rhinestones that I recently discovered in my nail art draw.

Leighton Denny - Secrets Of The Souk Collection

Friday, 28 April 2017

PR Sample

Happy Friday folks and hooray for another 3 day weekend. Although the temperature here in the UK is more indicitive of winter, after swatching this collection, I can't help but feel all warm and summery inside.


Leighton Denny always release collections that are so inventive in both theme and colour. When I saw their Summer 2017 collection advertised on Instagram and Twitter, it was love at first sight. I couldn't believe it when LD themselves offered to send them to me.

Primark Spring Classic Nail Polishes & Giveaway

Thursday, 27 April 2017

Contains PR Samples

I'm back with another Primark swatch-fest today and I don't know about you but I feel like it's been too long.


I should disclaim that a lot of these colours have been around for a few months now but I am sure most of them are still available in Primark. I was sent a few of these (which I had already purchased so there will be a GIVEAWAY at the end of this post) and then picked up a couple more as and when I saw them.

Nails Inc Sparkle Like A Unicorn Duo

Wednesday, 26 April 2017

PR Sample

I can't believe it's been over a week since I last blogged, however it feels like a lot longer. Due to the recent cold snap, I seem to have reverted back to my winter behaviour of snuggling up in bed for long naps and drinking copious amounts of tea. This has made blogging a little tricky.


However I'm back with a bang today and have a gorgeous duo from Nails Inc for you.

PR Sample

Today I have a review of a new to me brand called True Brit London. In early March I was sent their new 2017 nail polish releases and I finally have them all for you to drool over today. I must warn you, this is very picture heavy, so scoll, scroll some more and enjoy.

True Brit London 2017 Polishes

True Brit London is a British brand that was founded in 2014, with everything from the formula to the bottle designed to exude luxury. In fact I don't think I have come across such a beautifully packaged polish ... ever.

PR Sample

Back in February at the Barry M Spring 17 launch event, we were teased with a sneak peek at some new Molten Metal nail paints, including a gorgeous holographic.

Barry M Molten Metal Collection Spring 2017

Unfortunately as they were not being released until April, we all had to wait. And wait we did. Now the day has finally come and as they are being released tomorrow, I though it the perfect opportunity to share my swatches with you.

April Fools Day 2017 - A Roundup

Sunday, 2 April 2017

Not only does the beginning of April herald the start of some serious Spring days, but the online world goes a little crazy for a April Fools Joke.


For the past 3 years I have recorded a quick summary of the April Fools hoaxes we have been subjected to, and this post shows 2017's offerings. It's always so funny to look back and see how inventive the brands get.

Monthly Favourites - March 2017

Saturday, 1 April 2017

Another month of 2017 is over and I'm pretty sure somewhere back in January I butt dialed pressed fast forward because no way have we had a quarter of the year already.
Ok, assuming that I really have woken up in April, I need to not only get on with this blog post, but start thinking about everything else that starts happening now we move into Spring, and dare I say it eventually Summer.


As far as nail blogging goes, it was a bit of a struggle in the middle of March, due to an illness, but thankfully that was sandwiched between some pretty productive blogging, which saved the month.

26 GNAI - Green Freestyle

Friday, 31 March 2017

Happy Friday or as I like to call it, the best day of the week. I have had such a lovely relaxing evening, I lit a bunch of candles, popped on my fave yankee candle scent and cooked up enough pasta to feed an army (and ate it all). The only thing left to finish this girly evening off is a heavenly soak in the bath.


But first, I must show you my Nail Crumpets, 26 Great Nail Art Ideas mani.

Masura Nail Polish - A Review

Wednesday, 29 March 2017

PR Sample

Happy last Hump Day of the month. It's so weird to think it'll be April within a few days. Although the lighter evenings are lovely, I can't wait for the warmer Spring days as it's been a tad chilly recently.


The other week I received a really nice trio of polishes all the way from Russia. Masura is a brand I've seen around Instagram for a while now. and I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to try it out. Especially as they produce some incredible magnetic polishes.

SensatioNAIL DIY Gel Polish Review

Tuesday, 28 March 2017

PR Sample

Sometimes you receive PR packages that are out of this world and this was totally the case with this bundle of goodies from SensatioNAIL.


Shamefully I got this back in January and the main reason I am so late posting this review is because I wanted to fully test all 14 of the colours I was kind enough to be sent. The other reason is I'm a complete lazy bones.

Guest Post: A Career As A Nail Technician - What You Need To Know

Monday, 27 March 2017

Today I have a guest post written by the lovely Holly who contacted me and asked if I would be willing to work with her. After reading this piece I knew it would be a great fit for my little blog. As a nail obsessive who often day dreams about becoming a full time nail technician, I thought this post would be of interest to many others who read my blog and are thinking of not only ditching their miserable 9-5 but who want to fill their lives with the kind of creative happiness that nail art brings.

Red Nose Day 2017

Friday, 24 March 2017

Happy Friday and Happy Red Nose Day!


I know that some of you outside of the UK may wonder what on earth Red Nose Day is and rather briefly, it's a UK wide charity day aimed at raising money for the charity Comic Relief (who have a vision for a just world, free from poverty). On Red Nose Day you're encouraged to raise money through laughter and just like the stereotypical clown, don a red nose while you're at it.

Speaking of spring, today I have a very spring themed nail collection to show you.

Happy hump day, I hope you're all having a great week. I've managed to get a little on top of my swatch pile and today have a post that's been weeks in the making.


The lovely Andreea over at Madam Glam was kind enough to send me some gels to review and I couldn't have been more excited. They arrived back in Feb and since then I've been testing them out and I am so impressed.

Spring Nail Haul

Tuesday, 7 March 2017

As we progress through March and transition (slowly) into spring, I find myself putting away my winter knits and browsing the internet for some fresh, lighter clothing. I've picked up a couple of pairs of metallic flats and have started wearing my trusted chelsea boots a little less. The days are not warmer as much as they are milder and the longer hours of daylight mean that come 6 I can still nip out without needing a torch (you know - to pick up that bar of chocolate I promised myself I wouldn't need).


With my changing wardrobe, I also find myself needing to update my nail art supplies. I love shopping for seasonal bits and bob and today I have a little overview of some of my newest purchases (mostly all from eBay).

26 GNAI - Mixed Tape Mani

Sunday, 5 March 2017

I can't believe that I've got another Crumpet's Nail Tarts mani for you today. The weeks really slip by. This time the challenge was Mixed Tape Mani. A prompt that seemed to cause a little trouble as no one was sure what exactly they were suppose to do.


I interpreted it like this - a mixed technique mani with the use of tape. Yes a total cop-out but as I didn't plan this mani and then really loved how it turned out when it was finished, I wanted to use it and sometimes you have to make a square peg fit in a round hole.

Nails Inc AW16 - The Reflectors

Thursday, 2 March 2017

PR Sample

Happy Thursday, hope you're enjoying your week. Today I have a long overdue post for you featuring some gorgeous Nails Inc polishes.


Last year Nails Inc released this collection for AW16 along with their Charcoal infused Gel Effect collection. Now I've used these polishes in lots of nail art looks, but it's taken me until now to swatch them, I'm not sure why as they're incredible.

Monthly Favourites - February 2017

Wednesday, 1 March 2017

Another month of 2017 done (see my January 2017 monthly favourites here) and although February was a short month, it flew by and I can't believe that tomorrow will be March already. 



Jessica Nails Silhouette Collection

Thursday, 23 February 2017

PR Samples

Today I have a review of Jessica Nails new Spring 2017, Silhouette collection. At first I wasn't sure what to think of a neutral collection for spring, especially as I typically think of spring as the perfect time to bring out the pastels and adorn my nails with florals and easter themed cuteness.

Jessica Nails Spring 2017 Silhouette Collection

However it's also the perfect time for fresh starts, new beginnings and with that comes a chance to strip back your colour palette and opt for something a tad more sophisticated.
