[Swatches] Entire ELES Brighton Nail Collection

Hi! I'll be sharing my nail swatches of the new ELES Brighton Nail Collection consisting of 12 vibrant pastel nail colours inspired by UK's Brighton Beach. Despite it being known as an 'infamous beach', I hadn't actually heard about it. Instead it reminds me of the coastal suburb in my city - the suburb of Brighton which has a large sandy beach. Either way, this range is all about the seaside inspiration with their shade names to match.

 This was unexpectedly sent to me by ELES - surprise package!

They embroidered my name on the towel :)

 A clearer look at the shades. Such a colourful collection
RRP $15 AUD each

 Sorry, the brush isn't in complete focus but that's what it looks like

You may have noticed the '5 FREE' written at the front of each bottle. This simply means that these nail polishes have a '5 FREE' formula - NO DBP, NO Toulene, NO Formaldehyde, NO Formaldehyde Resin, NO Camphor. Don't worry, you're not expected to know what each of them are. Just know that these are 5 toxic ingredients common found in nail enamels, and these ELES nail enamels are FREE from them.

Aren't they ALL so pretty?! I'm a massive fan of pastels, so you can imagine how excited I was to swatch all of these shades. I love the glossy finish that they give and the coats were very easy to apply and fast-drying. I found that with the nail polishes I had, there were a few that weren't as smooth and streak-free as others (you can probably tell in the swatches) and some were opaque with one coat and some were better with an extra coat. I guess it depends on the brightness/darkness of the shade but nonetheless, they all had a nice consistency.

Overall I am really happy with these nail enamels and they're true to the colour seen on the bottle - what you see is what you get! For the quality, $15 each is a very reasonable price and I highly recommend them. If you're interested in checking them out further, you can find them on the ELES website here. those who have fairer skin, you can click on the 'Try it on' button on the site to preview the swatch.

Questjen of the week:

If you had to, pick a nail colour to have for life - what would it be?

My answer: Peach!

It suits my feminine personality and I think it's one of the most wearable colours for everyday wear! Peach Pebble is my favourite from this range and my favourite nail polish of all time is Essie's Eternal Optimist :)

  1. I love that they sent everyone a personalised towel! So cool.

    Also some really nice colours in here. I really wish I had longer nails or the time to go get them done but they just always break on me when they get to long. Years of biting have taken their toll.

    I think the coral looks lovely on your skin tone!

    1. Yeah, I love anything with a personal touch to it :)

      I agree! Ah, have you tried using a Nail Hardener top coat? Apparently that stuff helps but I haven't tried it so I wouldn't know.

      Aw thank you x

  2. Must have taken you forever to swatch all of these all on the nails!! Look so pretty though :) it was so sweet of ELES to send these out to us!

  4. Aww, that's sweet of Eles to personalise the towel for you! Those nail polish names are so cute! Love the Sunset On The Pier. If I were to have a nail colour for life, it would probably be a nude or clear. I'm all about nudes lately which is why I'm wearing OPI Bubble Bath on my nails right now. :) x

    1. It is right! I hope you've enjoyed using their blush by the way :)
      Ooh why didn't I think of nude?! Nudes are gorgeous and I just had to Google 'OPI Bubble Bath' haha, it's really pretty xx
