Manicure Monday: Tasty Tangerine by Precious Polish

mm-preciouspolishthDon’t tell anyone, but I think summer may be on the way. Or spring at least! I’m really digging bright vibrant colours at the moment, and I think blues, yellows, pinks and oranges will be on may nails a lot for the next few months. Speaking of oranges, that’s the focus of today’s Manicure Monday. Little oranges. More specifically tangerines, in the form of Tasty Tangerine, part of the Precious Polish Summer 2014 collection of 5 polishes, called Summer Lovin’.


I’ve written about precious polish before, when I talked about one of their original collection polishes. If you remember, I said it was good, but not great, and that the formula could be a little better. The good news is that the formula has drastically improved. It is still 5 free, but if not a lot less gloopy, and is a lot better for it. It is also now in a rectangular bottle, with a lovely brush, making polish application much easier. The length of the brush could be just a little longer, but that is my personal preference, and the quality of the brush is really good.

But enough of my waffling on about the polish. Lets actually see it!

You’ll have to excuse my slightly wonky application, that’s my fault. The colour though is gorgeous. With a tan and a cocktail in your hands these nails will really pop!

Precious Polishes cost €7, and there is an opportunity to custom add glitter into a polish, making it truly unique for an extra €1.

What do you think of Precious Polishes, and Tasty Tangerine? What would be your ideal colour and glitter mix? Let me know in the comments!

Review and Swatches: Flowering Passion, by Precious Polish

pp-bottle-thThere are a few things I really love, like purple, and nail polish. So when Irish beauty blogger Anita created her own nail polish brand, Precious Polish, I jumped at the chance to try one, and ended up with Flowering Passion.

Firstly, a little about the polish. Precious Polish is “5 free” so it doesn’t contain any nasty DPB, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Toluene  or Camphor. Personally I found the polish to be a little thick, but it spread well, and applied nicely. It is also quite sheer, but I got it to a very acceptable level of colour with 3 coats on top of a layer of CND Stickey base coat.


On the nails it is a stunning colour. It is super shiny, and when the light hits the glitter the polish really comes into its own. Every time it catches my eye it makes me smile, which is the point, really.

Unfortunately, wear time was a bit of an issue for me though. Polish chips. It happens and there’s nothing you can do about it. When it chips and then causes the rest of the polish to peel off the nail, it’s a little problem. This did happen on 1 nail, with a couple of small chips on other nails, and I’m now considering changing polish after 4 days of wear. This isn’t the worst in the world, and I’m sure we have all had experiences of high-end mass-produced polish that has chipped within hours.

Now, who wants to see some pictures? As always, pictures are taken both with and without flash. First up, without:


And now with.


This is a seriously gorgeous colour. Granted, I’ve had some problems with it, but when it comes to it, there are 2 questions I need to answer. Would I wear it again, and would I buy more Precious Polish? The answer to both is definitely YES.

What do you think of the colour? Do you have any Precious Polish, or do you think you would buy one? Let me know in the comments.

NOTE: Since I received this bottle, the formula has been changed to reduce likelihood  of chipping. Just letting you know 😉
