I have been dying to share with you some of my new polishes and first up are the Nailberry Collection which arrived last month and I have had endless enjoyment from.
The 6 polishes came in a gorgeous presentation box which I have not yet taken them from and seem to have kept them in due to the fact I love that they are all together neatly in there.
The six polishes included -
1.Oxygenated Ultra Shine Top Coat
Cost - £17.00
I for one am always running out of top coat and find it one of the most important polishes of all so this for me was a need .
If it was not for top coat for extra protection , the under polish would fade in colour and shine and most likely last no where near its usual expectancy .
I find using a good quality top coat makes all the difference in whether the nail polish underneath stays put for longer and it helps me especially when I have my hands in the sink most of my days to maintain a neater nail for longer .
This top coat is perfect for giving that crystal shine finish to your nail and works well at protecting them from those chips and fading.
2.Oxygenated Strengthening Base Coat
Cost - £14.50
To me it never even occurred to use a base coat until I spent a long summer wearing the brightest of shades on my toes and fingers and was suddenly surprised to find I had stained them with a mixture of sunshine and lack of education to needing an undercoat.
I have been looking for a new one so this was my second obvious choice for that reason and I have been using it for the darker shades especially and had no signs of staining. This strengthening base is also fantastic for people like me , who are struggling to grow their nails or have problems with brittle nails and peeling.
I currently seem to be getting the best out of my pregnancy for a change and my nails have become stronger through that but I usually have terrible nails that peel.
Applying this before every application of polish is comforting that I will always have clean, stronger, thicker and smoother looking nails and this is why the added benefits make it worth every penny to me .
3. A Smart Cookie
Cost - £13.50
I have always been a very big sucka for pink polishes, I tend to look at my pinks in my whole nail polish collection and always find space for that extra one which somehow looks slightly different in shade (or that is my excuse to get it anyway).
This pink reminded me of the Hubba Bubba Sweets we used to have as kids and I knew it would be the perfect shade for Summer and Spring , in fact I have already been seen sporting it for the past two weeks , I simply can not pull myself away from the shade and because the quality is so fantastic, I have only had very little chipping from it in the whole two weeks wearing it so it was basically just a case of topping the polish up .
The fact I only needed to use one coat of this was even better , usually I would have to add up to three coats to get a perfect coverage.
Perfect for Spring this gorgeous shade really makes your nails stand out and is perfectly chic.
4. Baby Blue
Cost - £13.50
Well I had the baby pink (smart cookie) , all I needed now was the Baby Blue , why not , this being pregnant has most certainly gone to my head so I had to get a pair .
This polish is not quite the Baby Blue I was expecting though, not to the usual light shaded blue tone but more the green which usually does not appeal to me.
This time however I was actually very excited to see that this polish was a mintish light green with a creamy look to it , definitely spring , Easter colour .
With only two coats this polish looked utterly gorgeous and smooth and once again delivers a high shine finish with streak free application of their precision brush.
5. 50 Shades
Cost - £13.50
There is no surprise as to the reasons why I bought this . Yes it was all the craze of that fascinating book '50 Shades Of Grey' and with the movie being released in March this year (around the time of picking my polishes) , I had that sudden urge to find out if this really did live up to the 50 Shades name.
I think I was all in expecting a dark leatherette grey effect with this polish .
On line the shade looked completely different to how I saw it in the bottle and on the nail .
This polish has a very satin slate like finish , you see the grey blend in with the iridescent flecks which hides behind the dark colour .
This sophisticated shade is also as elegant as it is ''50 Shades'' and I for one am loving the fantastic mix of shade in this polish, I simply have nothing like it.
Cost - £13.50
This was very similar looking to '50 Shades' but I found it looked more midnight sparkle blue hense why I went for this one.
I remember going to a spa for my honeymoon and the lady put a gorgeous (what I could only describe as I have no idea what the polish was) midnight sparkle blue polish on my toes.
It literally reminded me of a starry night and this is what Storm reminded me of but with a more hint of green to the colour .
It is described as a sheer blue grey but to me resembles noting of the sort. I find more blue and forest green than grey in this polish with those gorgeous flecks of minute iridescent shimmers which when applied pops out like an aqua sea shade . I love this polish , It is a new one in my collection I do no have that matches like any other .
This polish really does catch your eye and I will certainly be wearing this more in the Autumn /Winter days.
I have to admit , the Nailberry nail polishes have wowed me.
It has been a long time, (since the Coca Cola OPI Collection in fact) that a nail polish actually wowed me and this is most certainly one of the High end brands that will be joining my most loved shades and extending in the near future.
The polish has proved that to get that high shine finish, it only takes 1-2 coats of the polish with high precsion brush that is easy to handle and gives the streak free finish.
The Brand does not compromise in quality in the different collections it has and with the gorgoeus sophisticated packaging , this makes something of a treat to own .
Not only are these polishes a delight to own and wear but the added joy is that these polishes are free from chemicals.

The downside to owning these polishes :
I simply can not get enough of them , I need more .
So I know some will not love the high price but it really is a fantastic brand and quality polish . What do you think of Nailbery?
