The Edge Nails Annika Nail Colour- Swatch & Review

*Press Sample*

Hello, my lovely readers, I hope you have all had a great relaxing weekend. I was still trying to recover from the sickness bug that I had recently picked up, so not much fun for me. Today's post is about Annika Nail Colour from the Edge Nails, these were sent to me for review recently. The Edge Nails is a professional nail care brand that sells many different nail supplies, they primarily sell to wholesalers, salons, and nail technicians. Let's take a closer look at these polishes!


The lovely Chloe from The Edge Nails sent me these three beautiful polishes for review, two are great polishes for Halloween and the other polish is the perfect base colour for a French manicure. 


The first polish is Drama Queen, this is a purple creme with a few drops of grey. It is a beautiful polish for this time of year.



The formula was really easy to apply, it was on the thicker side but not so thick that it is hard to handle. This reached full opacity in 2 coats and dries to a beautiful glossy finish.


The second Annika polish I was sent to try is Wild Side, this is a beautiful pumpkin orange creme the perfect colour for any upcoming Halloween mani's.



This had a great formula too, perfectly opaque in 2 coats and easy to apply to the nail. This also dries to a lovely glossy finish, no top coat really needed for this one. 


The last polish is called Bella Ballerina, this one is not going to become fully opaque but it the great base for a French manicure. 



It is a very sheer light pink creme, you will see your nail line through this one but it gives your nails a beautiful pink hue. My pictures are with three coats, you definitely need to use the three stroke method when applying this one. 


Finally, I used Bella Ballerina to create a french tip manicure with some lace, for the french tips I used some french tip vinyls and Color Club French Tip a great one coater white creme.


For the pretty lace pattern I used Ejiubas Wonders of Life stamping plate, I lined this up on my nail with the Bundle Monster Monocle stamper which I recently received in Septembers Pumpkin Spice Meebox.

Overall I am really impressed by these three polishes, the formula was really easy to work with and none of them left staining on my nails or cuticles. They all dried with a lovely shine so you don't necessarily need a top coat. You can get these three polishes from The Edge Nails website, each one is£4.20 including tax. 

The Edge Nails sell a huge variety of products to care for your nails, as well as an array of gel and regular polishes. All of the Annika polishes are 3 free and they have 30 gorgeous colours to choose from. They are all long lasting and salon quality, it is £3.95 shipping for all orders under £25 and free shipping for orders £25 and above. Chole sent me a discount code for anyone wanting to place an order, use WELCOME OFFER to get 20% off your first order. I will leave the Edge Nails website link below and their social media.


I would love to know your thoughts on these Annika polishes, you will be seeing Drama Queen and Wild Side show up in some upcoming Halloween manicures. Big thank you to Chole for sending me these beautiful polishes for review. 

As always have a fabulous nail day and I will chat to all you wonderful people again soon.

  5. I like wild side but don't love that sheer one. I've seen better bases for a french mani.
