Nails. I am obsessed with them and if you have followed me for some time, you would know that. With over eleven years experience in the nail industry, Roxanne Campbell knows what she’s talking about when it comes to nails. She’s painted nails and created nail designs for many a celebrity (including Adele and supermodel Jourdan Dunn) and for gold medalists in the athlete’s villlage at London 2012.
Having worked backstage at Fashion Week in both London and New York, Roxanne spotted a gap in the UK market for unique fashion colours and was inspired to create her own line of luxury nail lacquers.
If you watch my vlogs, you will know that I am forever getting my nails done. I love nail polish and never leave the house without my fingers and toes always being painted. Although I get my nails done regularly at a salon, I paint my toenails myself.
In the summer, I was very kindly sent two nail lacquers in gorgeous shades from Roxanne’s Summer Collection to try. I was obsessed with the two shades (Sitting Pretty and Off to Jamaica), and they were absolutely perfectly selected for me, and spot on shades for the summer.
With autumn and winter drawing in, I tend to shift the colours I’m wearing from bright shades, to more burgundys, neutrals and greys. Roxanne has got her Autumn/Winter collection just right with the three shades she has brought out, and she very kindly sent me all three to try. These have been added to my collection on my dressing table, as the packaging is so elegant and high-end looking.
Wine and Dine
When I saw I had been sent this beautiful berry shade, it made me so excited for crisp winter days. This shade matches perfectly with a red lip. I applied two coats of this on my toes for a more opaque finish.
This shade is very similar to Wine and Dine, but is a deeper shade, and to me, more autumnal. I have also worn this shade on my toes, and applied two coats as I prefer a more opaque finish. It could have done with a third coat to give it an even deeper finish/colour.
Of the three nail lacquers in the autumn/winter collection, this one is the most opaque, and definitely only requires one coat. It is the perfect shade of grey. If you watch my vlogs, you will know that I am obsessed with grey! This one is my personal fave!
Wine and Dine and Expensive Taste lasted well on my toenails, and were easily removed with no staining. I wore Stormy Weather over my shellac as a colour change, and removed with acetone free nail polish remover with ease.
The Roxanne Campbell Luxury Nail Lacquers are cruelty free, three free (free from formaldehyde, toluene and camphor) and are made right here in the UK.
These Luxury Nail Lacquers are super reasonably priced at £10 each, and would make great stocking fillers for Christmas! If you’d like to check out the full range, you can do so here.
