There's nothing more satisfying that cracking open a brand new bottle of nail polish and trying it for the first time, especially when you haven't had the chanceto read nor see any reviews/swatches. A couple of weeks ago I had the fantastic opportunity to test out a few Polished London nail polishes - I have heard snippets about this brand previously but haven't delved into the history or products. So I unknowingly dived into the polishes and after wearing all three polishes over the last three weeks I thought I would write my thoughts, plus include a few swatches, for you guys!
I received three bottles in the shades Cranberry, Portobello and Miss Navy. All three polishes went on smoothly and were quite opaque. I did have a little issue with Miss Navy as my nails were noticeable around the edges but that was due to no error than my own (note to self - do not paint dark coloured shades during the night as the artificial lighting makes everything look perfect). The only thing I would consider giving negative comments on is the brush, I feel as though Polished London could make the brush applicator thicker and and possibly make the bristles shorter. That way it makes controlling the brush much more easier. But other than that I'm very impressed with this brand.
Cranberry: Exactly what the name suggests, a cranberry red creme. (2 coats plus Seche Vite)
Portobello: A classic periwinkle (purple/blue) creme. (2 coats plus Seche Vite)
Miss Navy: A dark ink (or navy if you want to simplify it) blue with blue shimmers. (2 coats with Seche Vite)
Polished London polishes can be found at various Terry White Chemists and independent pharmacies within Australia (check out the stocklist here) ranging between $4.99-$7.99.
