'Ard as Nails | The Hashtag and Blogsquad Collections

ard as nails hashtag blogsquad collection swatches review

Today's post is very VERY picture heavy as I have 2 collections to show you. The reason I'm showing both of them to you is because 'Ard as Nails online shop has had a revamp and is finally open tomorrow. When these collections came out a few weeks ago I think they were gone in about 1 day (!) so time is of the essence here. If you want to get your hands on these beauties you need to act fast!

The Hashtag Collection*

The collection consists of 5 juicy holographic polishes. The finish of all of them is slightly matte so I'm wearing a top coat in all my pictures to bring out the sparkle. All of the shades have a metallic base apart from the #Legend* which is a holographic with a blue reflection. The consistency and formula are really good and 2 coats is all I needed for full opacity. Let's have a look at the colours.

The Blogsquad Collection*

This collection has a slightly more subdued palette compared to the previous one. I find the colour choices very 'romantic' and absolutely love the deep purple shade Crime Book Junkie*. The formula and finish are much like the previous collection so I am also wearing a top coat over every polish. There are 5 holographic shades including Chelle*, a silver holographic with a pink reflection. Let's have a quick look at the swatches.

All the shades should be available tomorrow, 1st of July, on soap-dodger.co.uk. What do you think about them? My absolute favourites are #PopYourCherry* and Crime Book Junkie*.

I only just realised that I didn't explain my nail shape! You might have seen some of these shades popping up on your feed if you follow 'Ard as Nails on social media. I swatched them a while ago but since the collections are now available again, I decided to feature them on the blog. My nails are still round, I promise!

  1. I don't know how you're doing it - but every single nail polish (even ugly colours) looks on your nails just stunning :)
