After recently removing my Shellac, I wanted to paint my nails straight away (nails with no colour at all just isn’t me)! The first shade I reached for was this Joan Collins Timeless Beauty Helene* nail polish, as it’s new and something I’ve been looking forward to trying for some time.

What Joan Collins Says

“I don’t feel dressed without nail lacquer. It’s as essential to me as lipstick”.

A luscious, red cream with a hint of blue undertones. Red nails never go out of style – they are always warm, glamorous and sexy.

An easy to apply nail lacquer that is smooth, quick drying and covers small imperfections to leave nails looking sleek and chic.

I love the style of this bottle, elegant and practical with a long tapered cap that’s easy to hold, and, helps balance the brush when applying. The ribbing improves grip and ease of opening and closing.

The colours are my personal favourites and I wear them all switching one to the other to reflect my mood, the effect I want to make, or simply to compliment my outfit.

First Impressions

The first thing that struck me about this nail polish, is the gorgeous box that it comes in. You don’t get many nail shades that come boxed; which makes it feel super luxurious!

The bottle is 12ml and is formed in the shape of a gem or jewel with a pointed gold brush handle. I really liked the overall design and it made me really intrigued to try the product inside.

I really like the long handle and with the vertical lines, it’s a nice grip and makes it much easier to open. The brush itself is also a good length, so you can cover a vast amount of nail in one sweep.

The product overall just shouts glamour and ‘Dynasty’ (for those of you old enough to remember it)! The design is perfect for a Joan Collins collection and I can see how she is very likely to have had a lot of input into the products and their appearance.

So What Do I Think?

I love red nail polish anyway, so Joan Collins Helene, available for £13, was pretty much sure to be a winner. My most recent red love has been Rimmels’ Double Decker Red and this shade is really quite close in colour.

I love the handle and how easy it is to grip and therefore apply the polish. The polish itself applies really easily and dries pretty quickly. The colour is vibrant and chic and I love it!

I also feel like this shade of polish would go beautifully with my favourite red lipstick at the moment, Revlon’s Colour Stay Ultimate Suede in Finale. The two would look gorgeous together. Otherwise, there are a whole range of Joan Collins lipsticks available, including Helene (available from here for £18) which of course has been made with matching this polish in mind!

    I love the bottle lid – it just looks so 80s and very Dallas. I think it’s a little pricey for a nail polish but the bottles look too pretty to say no to!

    Are you tempted to but a lippie then Jessica?! I’ve got the lip gloss in Ava and it’s so pretty! Pink with a hint of bronze shimmer. Perfect for summer! x

    It’s nice to read about new brands isn’t it! It’s fairly new and there are some wonderful pieces in the range. You should take a look! The bottle reminds me of something my Gran would have had on her dressing table when I was growing up. Beautifully retro somehow! x
