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.

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!
