#NLU – April Edition



Back into the swing of things on my blog, I feel like I up to speed on the latest nail collections and launches, thankgod! I felt this month I’ve been playing catchup! Not that it bothers me, just we are at the time of year where collections and launches are flowing one after the other. I guess it’s not a bad thing, I’ve got plenty to write about!

I was thinking after last months #NLU post, why not turn this into a monthly update, rounding up all of my favourite new nail launches in one post! It’s a good way of showcasing early press releases, promo shots and previews of upcoming collections and launches. Definately worth a gander!

I try not to put promo shots and press too early, especially with international polish launches taking their sweet time to arrive to my neck of the woods. But I always like to see what’s coming up to know what to check out, look out for and possibly pick up when they do become available.


The first release I am excited to pick up is OPI’s Alice Through The Looking Glass Collection, which is already widely available stateside and is becoming available through select nail e-tailers ahead of release. This is good news!

Ages ago I had seen promo shots ages ago for these, but I didn’t want to post about them here until I’d seen better pictures to show the shades properly and also to check out the shades myself!




I have seen the collection swatched through various polish websites and blogs, and live swatched on Phoebe Moon’s YouTube video below in recent times, they look fab! I will definately pick up my favourite shades, even before the official launch!






Another collection I am dying to check out is Chanel’s new Dans La Lumiere de L’Ete Summer 2016 Collection! I had seen previews for the collection here and there on various blogs and websites but now Summer launches are just around the corner, this needs a proper look!




I am really excited to see these shades in person as online they looked superb, a nice change from their usual Summer shades! These shades are perfect for Autumn too, the warmer darker hues make for very transitional palette. This collection will become available 13th May 2016, a date to pop into your diary!

I would also like to try these shades as they have recently reformulated their polishes, hopefully extending the wear time of a Chanel manicure. I hope to see an improvement!



My last and final launch is from Essie, with their Summer 2016 Collection! This collection is soooo new that I don’t even have an official launch date for the UK, however it will be available 17th May in Canada. So I imagine sometime in June/July for the UK and Europe, probably earlier from online e-tailers.




I was browing my usual blogs and sites I follow for nail news and came across a press post for Essie’s Summer collection release on SwatchandLearn’s Site. With swatched nails and bottles, along with press blurb describing the collection. I tell you what, based on the swatches I was eager to see these polishes in person!

What I like the most about this collection is that 3 of the shades are shimmers, which Essie don’t tend do too often! I will definately be picking this collection up ASAP!



There was my quick round up of upcoming polish launches I am looking forward to getting my mitts on! Only a month or so and these bad boys with hopefully be in my collection! Can’t wait!
