HJ Manicure - Subzero and Vamp (and an appearance by Colors by Llarowe)

I have for you all a post about a brand that is new to me and I think fairly new in general, HJ Manicure.

HJ Manicure is a nail care range, created by Helen J and based in London.  HJ Manicure is a non-toxic nail care brand.  The polishes are 15ml and come in a core range of 16 colours, with 4 new shades and a Dual Top and Base coat being added to the range for A/W 2014.

At this point there are 4 collections which are:

HOLIDAY - vibrant shades

CLASSIC - 'must have shades' (bright red, deep red and burgundy to coral, baby pink and hot pink)

NUDE - natural/nude shades

HJ SIGNATURE - consisting of Helen’s favourite Autumn/Winter shades and our best selling polishes. Including ‘Subzero’ ‘Midnight Sky’ ‘Vamp’ and ‘Alpine Green’.

I have 2 polishes to show you today, which fall into the HJ Signature collection, Subzero and Vamp.

Each are 1 coat of the Knight, 2 of the polish and no topcoat.  Application on both of these polishes was great and I really like the rectangle bottle they come in.

First we have Subzero, which is a grey creme.

Then we have Vamp which is a deep red.

Now I really liked both of these shades, and I feel they would look great at any time of year, but especially this season.

As much as I liked them alone, I can't help but layer when I wear a creme polish.

Firstly here is Subzero again with 1 coat of Colours by Llarowe Opals & Lace

And then Vamp with 1 coat dapped on of Colors by Llarowe I'm Seeing Spots.  This one was kind of a big of a fail as I did not anticipate that the black 'spots' would not be seen very well at all on such a dark can tell I've been away for a while ;)

HJ Manicure polishes can be purchased from the website where you can have a look at these polish and also the rest of the collections and find out a bit more about the polish line.

Colors by Llarowe as always can be purchased from the official site, Harlow and Co and Rainbow Connection.

Thanks for looking <3
