Artistic Colour Revolution - Baywatch Collection

Sunday, 29 October 2017

PR Sample

Sometimes the weekends go so quickly, so quickly in fact, that before you know it half a month has past. I don't know what's wrong with me, but at the minute I'm doing things in fits and starts and it seems like everything is suffering.


However I always try and start again, with renewed intentions and determination. So here I am, yet again promising to try again with my blog, with my job, with my life. Wish me luck :)

Jessica Street Style Collection

Tuesday, 17 October 2017

PR Sample

Another new week and after the events of the last couple of days (storm Ophelia I'm talking about you), it couldn't feel more autumnal. Where I live, I thankfully avoided any of the extreme weather, but we did have the very murky sky and the red sun and it was a little eerie when it went super dark around 3pm yesterday.


This week I am trying to get my life in order and part of that involves swatching and blogging. I was just beginning to make headway into my pile and was then sent another massive delivery (I'm not complaining at all) but it does mean I need to get on a roll.

Primark PS French Trio

Sunday, 15 October 2017

Sundays are made for relaxing and that is exactly what I have done today, I am the queen of being lazy and I'm loving it. Some days you just have to tuck yourself up in your home and stay cosy. I had a gorgeous cooked breakfast, a nap, caught up on X Factor, done a couple of household chores, swatched a little and planned my meals for next week.


Now I know that doesn't sound super chilled, but I feel so rested today and I think a lot of that is because I'm feeling quite prepared for the week ahead and I'm finally making waves into my massive swatching pile.

26 GNAI - Friday 13th

Friday, 13 October 2017

So today I'm back with a brand new 26 GNAI prompt and funnily enough, it's also the start of a new year and challenge. I tried and failed to complete this challenge last year due to a combination of laziness and circumstance.


For this round of prompts I'm going to try a little harder and ensure my designs are all posted within a few days of the theme going live, however no doubt life will get in the way of this from time to time, so bear with me.

Princess Nail Lacquer - Halloween 2017 Trios

Wednesday, 11 October 2017

PR Sample

Happy Hump Day, hope you're all having a lovely week so far. I wanted to get this post up yesterday, however as it was World Mental Health Day,  I took some time to myself, had a cosy evening and enjoyed watching The Bake Off with my bf.


As you know Halloween is fast approaching and although I don't plan on doing anything specific for the day itself, I love carving a pumpkin, getting some spooky tealights and duh, eating all the themed sweets/cakes in the lead up.

Danglefoot Polish - Whodunit Collection

Saturday, 7 October 2017

PR Sample

Happy weekend, today I have a rather overdue post for you. In fact I am a little unsure about whether or not these beauties are still available but I feel like they should still be showcased here on my bog.


As everyone knows (because I've not stopped talking about it) my blogging mojo has been a little off since I lost my dad back in July. However I still really love blogging and regardless of how long it takes for me to get posts finish, they will eventually get up.

Princess Nail Lacquer - Allergic To Flakiness

Wednesday, 4 October 2017

PR Sample

How on earth is your week going? Firstly can I say a big thank you for the lovely response to my September 2017 Favourites post. It's so lovely to have such support and also to know that I am a little bit missed. I do continue this nail hobby, more for my sanity than anything else, but I am so thankful that I have a solid group of lovely nail friends who are always there for me.


Today I thought I would kick off October with something so ridiculously autmnal, that I'm shocked I have waited so long to show it of.

Monthly Favourites - September 2017

Sunday, 1 October 2017

Happy October the 1st and horray for the start of the festive period. That's right, October is officially the month of Halloween, then we've got bonfire night and immediately after, it's the start of Christmas. Oh and if you don't agree, maybe we need to break up, because I'm not sure I need friends in my life who don't completely, over the top-ly embrace every wonder the AW season has to offer.


That's right, if you don't buy pointless but ever so needed halloween/christmas mech, clothing, mugs, hair accessories, watch lots of themed movies and decorate your house until it looks like something from a disney movie, then it's goodbye. I promise it's not you it's me (it's totally you) and have a fun life.

Princess Nail Lacquer - Tiara Sparkles

Saturday, 30 September 2017

PR Sample

Hello and how has your day been? I have been focusing on myself today, doing lots of self care and planning my diet and goals for October. I also plan on getting my Halloween bits out. I feel the time has come to spookify the house!


Did you see I've also posted a pretty hefty blog post showing the new Fugly Trio & Autumn 2017 creme colours that Ashleigh of Princess Nail Lacquer is launching. Did you grab any? I picked up her new mystery holo Aimee, no idea what colour it is but it says it's perfect for Autumn and that's enough for me.

Princess Nail Lacquer - Fugly Trio & Autumn 2017 Collection

PR Sample

Happy Saturday all. Today really feels like a typical autumnal day and I love it. These kind of day are perfect for wearing cosy jumpers (tick), eating homemade soup (tick) and snuggling up and watching netflix (tick).


It's fitting therefore that I have to show you some gorgeous autumnal shades being released tonight from Ashleigh over at Princess Nail Lacquer.

Sparklea Nail Polish Goosebumps Collection

Friday, 29 September 2017

PR Sample

With October (and halloween) just around the corner, it's no wonder the nail polish world is getting into the spirit of things. It's only been the last couple of years that I've embraced halloween and I love it, especially because as far as themes for nail art go, it's a winner.


Today I have Sparklea Nail Polish's Goosebumps Collection to show you. This is the first of 2 collections that Lea is releasing for the spooky season and it's full of shimmery classic halloween coloured polishes.

Princess Nail Lacquer - I Wanna Be A Care Bear Collection

Monday, 25 September 2017

PR Sample

Hello and hope you all had a lovely weekend. I spent my weekend visiting family (both mine and my boyfriends) and although I now feel exhausted (anyone else get that way after seeing lots of people), it was such a brilliant couple of days.


Today I have a slightly unseasonal post for you. As you're aware by now, I have the great privilege and pleasure to swatch for Ashleigh over at Princess Nail Lacquer. Recently she re-released a 4 piece creme collection, one that I was so excited would be returning. These I Wanna Be A Care Bear Colours are just my cup of tea and I remember feeling very sad that I had discovered PNL too late to grab these polishes when they originally came out.

Nails Inc Holler-Graphic Nail Polish Duo

Tuesday, 19 September 2017

PR Sample

Happy Tuesday everyone. It's a little later than I had planned to start writing this post, but rather than put it off until tomorrow, I thought I would make a cuppa and just get cracking.


I've actually had a lovely day, I popped out earlier and picked up some new cleaning 'bits', a few Christmas candle 'bobs' and lots of new nail essentials (polish remover etc). I also had a nap, caught up on the newest episode of Season 3 of Outlander and ate a glorious dinner.

Monthly Favourites - August 2017

Sunday, 17 September 2017

So it's technically closer to October now than it is to August, but I just couldn't move on with my blog without writing my August Favourites post. It isn't going to be long and there isn't much nail stuff to roundup, but I hope you can forgive me.


No one ever tells you how much the death of a relative will impact your life. It's obviously heartbreaking, but you also tend to become more delicate around others and more appreciative of the love that you have left in your life. It also shifts your priorities and for the last few weeks I have been focused on myself, my boyfriend, my family, my cats and my home.

Barry M 35th Birthday Nail Collection

Monday, 21 August 2017

PR Sample

Happy Monday, I hope your week has started well. The weather has taken a slightly Autumnal feel and I am loving it! I organised my knitwear, washed all my scarves, snuggled up in a blanket with all lots of candles on and binge watched Salem (which I am loving).


Today I have the first of many catch up posts that I will bring to you over the next couple of weeks. This year Barry M celebrated it's 35th Birthday and treated us to a whole host of new products in celebration. Amongst the newbies were 6 gorgeous classic shades and it was these that I have swatches for you today.

Princess Nail Lacquer - Birthstone Collection

Friday, 18 August 2017

PR Sample

Happy Friday, I hope you've had a great week and are looking forward to the weekend. I have been keeping myself busy, my house is currently having a massive declutter, a much needed deep clean and I'm also moving most rooms around. I was inspired after cleaning out my dads place and so far, I'm very happy with the results.


Today I have a review of Princess Nail Lacquer's Brithstone Collection. This collection was released on Wednesday and let me tell you, it's amazing. Ashleigh gets the combos of glitter, flakie and shimmer spot on and I am always so excited by her new releases.

Monthly Favourites - July 2017

Wednesday, 16 August 2017

I have taken my time in getting around to writing this post for many reasons; mainly it feels weird wrapping up a month, which for me will always be tinged in sadness (for the rest of my life). However I know that I'll want to remember it and for continuity reasons, I want to have this post on my blog, so here I go.


It's funny because I stormed the start of July, I had so many amazing posts written and was ready to really embrace my blogging self. I also had so many nail art designs created (which I haven't posted) and lots of mani swaps lined up, however they took a back seat as of the 13th of July.

Primark - PS Nail Candy Polish Review

Friday, 21 July 2017

It's been a while since I've had a Primark post here on my blog, thanks largely to the fact I didn't blog much throughout June, and I don't like it (you know how much of a fan I am). Also I still have 2 of their Trios to post about (see my Bronze Trio and Neon Trio reviews if you haven't) and a trio of metallics they've just released, so you can expect lots more over the coming weeks.


This Nail Candy nail duo was a real surprise for me. I had seen the Cotton Candy collection launch a little while ago but thought it contained only makeup and 3 round bottle polishes which I've not seen a hint of (in Primark stores or on social media). Even the feature on their website mentioned only the lip and eye products. So when I popped into my local Primark recently and saw these 2 new polishes, you can imagine how happy I was.

Sparklea Nail Polish - Carnival Collection

Thursday, 13 July 2017

Happy Thursday and happy weekend eve, I hope you've all had a good week and are excited for the weekend, I can't believe there's only 1 day to go. I think I'm most excited because there is going to be a food festival near me and I'm already looking forward to all the yummies.


Talking of yummies, I have a review of Sparklea's Carnival Collection for you to enjoy today. Back at the end of March, Lea posted a competition to name a few polishes she had posted to her @sparkleanailpolish Instagram page. She wanted a collection themes and names suggestions. I immediately saw them and thought of the Carnival and was the lucky winner.

IZ Beauty of London - Festival Fever Collection

Wednesday, 12 July 2017

PR Sample

Today I have another gorgeous collection to show you from the amazing IZ Beauty of London. This UK based company not only sells loads of gorgeous polishes and nail art accessories, including Swarovski crystals, but also hair and beauty products too.


IZ Beauty of London's Festival Fever collection has more of a tropical vibe to me (when looking at the colour palette) compared to colours I'd associate with festivals. When I think of UK festivals I see green vegetation, brown muddy fields and lots of orange tinged beer/cider. However I fear that's me being picky, it obviously screams summer and I love it.

Models Own - One Night Stand Mirror Effect Polish

Tuesday, 11 July 2017

PR Sample

How's your Tuesday going? It's a little rainy and grey where I am and as usual, I'm loving it. I'm even a little tempted to ramp up the drizzle and pop some thunderstorm tunes on (I legit have a thunderstorm playlist on my spotify), just to increase the snuggily feeling.


Today I have a review of Models Own One Night Stand polish. You may have seen my swatches on Models Own's social media and email, I feel so lucky to have been asked to swatch this polish for them as it really is something special.

Princess Nail Lacquer - Pass The Fizz & Rose

Sunday, 9 July 2017

PR Sample

Hello and happy Monday. I hope you've all had a lovely weekend. The weather here in the UK was incredibly gorgeous over the last 2 days, it's so lovely that we're having a bit more of an extended summer and I've been making the most of it (I have burnt shoulders to prove it).


Today I have another Princess Nail Lacquer review for you. After the popularity of the Nothing But Falkies Duo, I wanted to share a couple more gorgeous polishes from this amazing UK Indie.

26 GNAI - Beach Silhouette

Saturday, 8 July 2017

Today I'm back with another 26 Great Nail Art Ideas post, it seems I missed the last one (that now makes 3), so I'm casually popping it on the massive 'to do' list and will get around to it hopefully before the end of July.


For today I have my Beach Silhouette nails and there was only 1 set of polishes I could possibly use for this prompt - the gorgeous Models Own Aquaproof collection.

Glam Polish - Made In Manehatten Collection

Friday, 7 July 2017

PR Sample

Today I have a very exciting post to share with you all. For most of us nail bloggers, there is no conceivable way we could ever afford to buy all the polish that we could dream of owning, let alone have the time to swatch/use it all. Therefore over time we find ourselves developing a longer and longer 'want' list.


One of the brands on my 'want' list has been Glam Polish, and I'm afraid to say it's been on there for years. This amazing company produces some outstanding polishes and so you can imagine how incredibly happy (screaming fan girl ecstatic more like) I was to be contacted and asked to be a guest swatcher for them this month.

Princess Nail Lacquer - Nothing But Flakies Duo

Wednesday, 5 July 2017

PR Sample

Hello everyone,how's your week going? I am having a good one but am looking forward to the weekend (as always). Thank you all for your kind comments on my Monthly Favourites - June 2017 post, I love that they're interesting for you all too. I love adding a few personal bits onto this blog.


Today I have another post showcasing some gorgeous Princess Nail Lacquer polishes. The Nothing But Flakies Duo are gorgeous and like nothing I have in my collection.

Monthly Favourites - June 2017

Tuesday, 4 July 2017

Happy July. I have to say I feel a little foolish doing a June favourites considering I wrote all of 9 blog post last month, I also hardly did any nail art and my IG, Blog and general interaction on social media was very poor.


However I'd hate to look back at this month as a complete fail, there are so many amazing things I want to remember for June and so bare with me if you're interested and pop back later if you're not.

Majique Ltd - Large Gift Set Review

Wednesday, 28 June 2017

PR Sample

Happy Hump Day, it's been very wet and a little chilly where I am today and like the weather, my mood has been a little blue. It's weird because I usually love days like this. Thankfully I know the cure; some chocolate, a hot bath and lots and lots of Harry Potter.


Another mood enhancer is polish and today I have a lovely new to me brand to show you all called Majique Ltd.

Princess Nail Lacquer Gods & Goddess Collection

Tuesday, 27 June 2017

PR Sample

It's not very often that I put out 2 blog posts in a day, especially in a month that by all other accounts, has been drier than the Sahara (as far as my blog is concerned).


However Ashleigh from Princess Nail Lacquer is releasing a few new collections tomorrow and I wanted to show you all the swatches of both the collections I was lucky enough to get. If you haven't seen my swatches of the Rainbow Duo, then pop over there once you've read this post.

Princess Nail Lacquer - Rainbow Duo

PR Sample

Like a lot of things in life, swatches come along like buses on my blog and today I'm bringing you a host more shiny polish pictures.


I've swatched some polishes from Princess Nail Lacquer before and loved them (remember the Summer 2017 collection?), so you can imagine my delight when I was asked if I would like to do some more.

Models Own Aquaproof Collection

Monday, 26 June 2017

PR Sample

Happy Monday, did you all have a nice weekend? The sun is back today and with it, my blogging mojo. I don't know where it went the last couple of weeks, but I have seriously been missing it.


Today I have the stunning new Aquaproof collection from Models Own to show you all. This is a collection I have been itching to share for weeks and I am so happy that I can finally show these off.

2017 Birthday Wishlist

Friday, 23 June 2017

Hi everyone and happy weekend. I hope you have some lovely plans. Here in the UK it's actually cooled down slightly which for me is a good thing. In fact today has been rainy, grey and after catching up on a Christmas themed episode of New Girl and accidentally (cough cough) listening to a couple of Christmas songs while cleaning, I'm in a distinctly non-summer mood.


Today I have my second 'birthday wishlist' post. I did my first of these last year - see my 2016 Birthday Wishlist post here and as my birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks, I thought it time to do another. Like I said then, it's a little different for my blog, but these are the kind of things I will love looking back on, plus it also helps give my family and friends a couple of ideas of the kinds of things I am lusting after right now.

IZ Beauty Of London Nail Decals

Wednesday, 21 June 2017

PR Sample

Hello and welcome back to the blog, you may be feeling like it's been ages since you've heard from me, and you'd be right. One of my best friends got married on the weekend and I dedicated a lot of time in the run up to helping her and then I've really struggled to get back into nails.


Anywhoo, here I am and I have a very tropical mani to show you today using lots of lovely IZ Beauty of London decals.

26 GNAI - Water

Friday, 9 June 2017

Happy Friday lovely people. I don't know about you but as we hit the weekend, I'm feeling very autumnal. Casseroles, hot chocolate, jumpers and warm baths are all on the menu this weekend, accompanied by some Disney and a load of carbs. Yes it's June, but the weather this week has been positively 'October' and I for one am kinda loving it.


Today I have another Crumpet's Nail Tarts challenge and I'm actually a little pleased with myself for pulling this one off.

Jessica Prime Collection

Tuesday, 6 June 2017

PR Sample

I hope you're all having a lovely Tuesday. I know the weather hasn't been great but I have something exciting to show you which I hope will brighten up your day.


Jessica are releasing a bold 5 piece collection called Prime today, these polishes celebrate the playfulness of primary colours and are designed to bring out your inner artist.

Nail Haul From My Sister

Monday, 5 June 2017

So it's been a few days since I posted my May Favourites and since then I've been a busy bee, so much so that I'm not really surprised its already the 5th June.


A couple of days ago I met up with my family for lunch and was handed a large bag of goodies, including a new pan set, puzzles, wax melts and glass cutting boards from my mum, a Virgin hamper containing prosecco and a hot air balloon ride from my dad and a massive bag of polishes from my sister.

Monthly Favourites - May 2017

Friday, 2 June 2017

As we move into the last month of the first half of the year, I've decided to hold my hands up and resign myself to the fact that 2017 is moving far too quickly for my taste.


May has been a very busy month for me both personally and bloggingly and I think I may have hit a blog record in the number of posts I've published. I've really enjoyed working hard to swatch loads of new polishes, interacting and engaging with other bloggers on their blogs and on instagram accounts and creating nail art as and when I've had time.

Essie 2017 Resort Collection

Wednesday, 31 May 2017

PR Sample

Happy Hump Day! What with the bank holiday, I'm a little all over the place this week. However it's been such a nice day today, I can't moan too much.


What I can moan about is the fact it's now the last day in May - umm what? Thankfully I have one last post for you before I head into June and today I have Essie's 2017 Resort Collection.

Primark Holographic Glitter Nail Polish Review

Tuesday, 30 May 2017

Another day and another Primark post. I hope you all caught up with my Summer Classic Nail Polish post from yesterday. I almost combined this and yesterdays but I felt these shinnies (as I call them because of their chrome mirror lids) deserved their own special post.


Now I will address the elephant in the room - these are not holographic. I know that the incorrect use off the term holographic seems to annoy the pants of people, however it doesn't bother me. I think us nail obsessives sometimes forget that the rest of the world isn't as clued up on specific nail terminology and for that, I just brush it off. No one's got time for that!

Primark Summer Classic Nail Polishes

Monday, 29 May 2017

Happy Bank Holiday Monday, have you all had a great weekend? I have enjoyed the 3 days and although the weather has been a little on the dreary side, I've loved it.


At the end of last month I showed you the Primark Spring Classic shades and now I have a new bunch of Classic shades for the summer for you to drool over. I usually wait a little bit longer between these classic posts, however recently they have released lots of new colours and I wanted to show you these before they disappeared, after all we know that things can vanish from the shelves of Primark, never to return again.

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.
