HJ Manicure Nail Varnish Swatches and Review

Ni Zao (good morning in Chinese)!

This morning I have a new brand of nail polish to show you. The brand is called HJ Manicure, and it was launched in 2009 by Helen J., who is a manicurist and model based in London.

HJ Manicure is comprised of both seasonal colors as well as limited edition colors and nail treatments. The polishes come in both regular sized bottles (15ml) and mini ones (5ml), for select shades.

There are about 30 colors right now available, and she just released her winter collection called the Snow Collection.

The formula on the ones I tried was pretty good. I did have some tip shrinkage with one of them, but that could be because I was in a huge rush to swatch it before the sun disappeared.

I apologize in advance for the horrific pictures. I took these inside in a tiny swatch of sun peeking through my sliding glass door. Plus I always find mini-bottles hard to hold and have your hand look decent! Peep ’em out!
