A New Nail Polish Brand - Roxanne CampbellTuesday, September 13, 2016
I'm sure you all know by now that I
am a bit of a a lot of a nail polish addict, I love nail polish and despite owning far too many polishes already, every haul post I write will always contain at least one new nail polish, I just cannot resist.
I recently received a couple of nail polishes from the brand Roxanne Campbell, Roxanne Campbell is a professional nail expert who has honed and refined her unique approach over the last ten years, during that time she has collaborated with some of the most prestigious brands and designers. During the 2012 Olympic games Roxanne had the honour of painting more than 200 national flags on the nails of top international athletes and in 2013 she was named manicurist of the year. Roxanne is head of nails at fashion week painting the nails of many a supermodel, she is also an international judge at Nailympia, and has painted the talons of many famous people including Adele.
Roxanne Campbell launched her own nail polish collection in August 2016, the collection is dedicated to perfection, Roxanne draws on fashion icons and season trends transforming her vision into a unique range of colours designed to enhance, inspire and uplift. Using the finest quality nail lacquer, Roxanne's customised formula provides a smooth, even application and a high gloss finish. The range is cruelty free and there are 10 nail polish shades plus a base and top coat available, they are all £10.00 each.
I received the shades Sitting Pretty, a fuchsia pink and Stormy Weather, a beautiful grey.
I love the packaging of the nail polishes, it is sleek and classy with the brand name on the front with the polish name and website details on the back. The square lid lifts off to reveal a round twist off lid making application effortless.
The brush on the nail polishes is what I would call a standard nail polish brush, it isn't one of the newer wider brushes it is just a standard size brush and is easy to use, the nail polish applies really well and I was really impressed to see that I could probably have got away with just one coat of polish but I like an opaque nail look so I opted for two coats. The polish dried quickly in between coats and I was really surprised at how glossy the finish is on the polish, it is so glossy that you could easily skip a top coat and considering how quickly the polish dries it makes for a super speedy manicure.
The swatches on the nail wheel are both two coats without top coat
In the photographs above I had applied two coats of Sitting Pretty but hadn't used a top coat and hopefully you can see how glossy my nails look. I am so pleased with how glossy the formula is, I do usually apply a top coat when I paint my nails but I really didn't need to with these polishes. Stormy Weather is equally as glossy and doesn't need a top coat either. The polishes wear for around 4 days without a top coat which I think is a really great wear time especially without using a top coat, the polish removed with ease using my usual acetone free nail polish remover.
I am so impressed with the Roxanne Campbell nail polishes and would love to try more shades from the range, there is a stunning red shade called Kiss Me First and a lovely coral/orange called Off To Jamaica that look beautiful but all the shades are lovely and there is a shade to suit all tastes too. I am really happy with the nail polishes and love everything about them from the packaging to the finish of the nail polish, they apply well, dry quickly and have an amazing glossy finish, they are incredible and I highly recommend them.
If you would like to try the nail polishes, you will find them on the Roxanne Campbell website HERE priced at £10.00 each for 12ml of polish.
