Nailberry Spring/Summer 2014 Collection

I quite literally dipped my toe in Nailberry polishes last year when I experienced a Classic Pedicure and Japanese Manicure at the Nailberry Salon in South Kensington. This year however I've been dabbling in the new Spring/ Summer collection of colours, a handful of which I've got to show here.
Nailberry won Best Nail Polish Brand in the Beauty Shortlist Awards this year for very good reason. Completely cruelty-free, the polishes are marketed as '4 Free', meaning they don't contain Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP (a binder)  and Camphor. They're basically one of the least toxic nail polishes around, which is obviously a good thing. They also offer a pretty stunning collection of colours ranging from deep reds, to barely there nudes through to bright Brazilian green (in celebration of the World Cup of course.)
The colours I've been playing with are part of the recent Spring/ Summer releases and include Young and Fabulous - described as a '1950's' pink, Lush- a light greyish blue, Lait d'amande- a light champagne nude and Noisette - a warm nutty brown.

Call me a traditionalist, but Young and Fabulous is my pick of the bunch. The bright girly pink looks very pretty against (fake) tanned skin and is definitely a winner for me.
It's worth mentioning that the formula of the Nailberry polishes is quite thin. Richly pigmented, yes but a little on the thin side, probably due to the lack of yucky chemicals in the ingredients which I think is a fair compromise. Though each of the polishes I tried were of a similar consistency with decent colour pay off, the most opaque of the four is definitely Noisette - only one coat of the rich brown colour is required whereas the other three need two to achieve full coverage. All in all, a nice little taste of the latest colours from Nailberry and I look forward to seeing what they come up with for the next collection. Nailberry 4 Free Nail Lacquers retail at £13.50 each.
