HJ Manicure Swatches & Review

Hello friends! Today I'd like to share some polishes from HJ Manicure, a luxurious nail care range created by model and session manicurist Helen J. All polishes from this brand are cruelty free, vegan friendly, and free from the "Big 5" (toulene, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, dibutyl phthalate, and camphor). 

I have three shades to show you, so let's go! Read through to the end of this post for a treat (hint: discount code!), too :)

HJ Manicure "Caramel Latte"

"Caramel Latte" is a lovely medium, warm-toned camel nude shade, perfect for the office or if, like me, you just love a good neutral polish! Formula was very nicely pigmented, with a good consistency and very easy to apply. Swatches show two coats and top coat.

HJ Manicure "Sub Zero"

"Sub Zero" is a dark, moody, charcoal grey shade. Formula was slightly more fluid than "Caramel Latte" but still a breeze to apply. Swatches show to coats and top coat.

HJ Manicure "Midnight Sky"

"Midnight Sky" is a beautiful, slightly blackened blue shimmer with a slight purple undertone. No issues with the formula - easy to apply, good coverage. Swatches show two coats and top coat.

I am very impressed with all three of these polishes from HJ Manicure. They may not be ground-breaking in terms of shade or finish, but they are very good quality, easy to apply, classic basics for any nail polish addict's collection. Formulas are all very easy to work with, and while the brush stalk is quite long, I had no problems controlling it - application, as I have already said, was easy peasy lemon squeezy!

You can buy these shades along with many others from the HJ Manicure website - - and as a little treat for you dear readers I have a discount code which entitles you to 25% off your first order: quote code ANNA25 at check out (minimum order value of £15.00 applies; discount code valid until 30th November 2015).

Thanks for reading, and come back again soon :) x
