Welcome to The Polish Lab! We started The Polish Lab with the usual goals: to provide info on polishes, supplies, and different types of manicures; to alert followers to any great polish sales or promos we learn of; and, yes, to host an occasional giveaway. But we also founded The Polish Lab with another aim. Polish isn’t just about pretty colors and nice nails. It comes with memories attached—some humorous, others poignant. Polish can help us celebrate good times and survive the tough times. And perhaps most importantly, polish can serve as a path to friendships that would never have formed otherwise. At The Polish Lab, we want our readers to share those experiences with us and with each other.
we have no intention of adhering to a rigid schedule—and you won’t see
each of the following features each week-- there are several topics you
can expect to see from us on a somewhat regular basis:
Mani Monday: We invent the mani. You guess the polish.
(Don’t worry—we’ll give you a hint or two).
Tube Tuesday: Frankens and other highly experimental
Wish List Wednesday:
An exercise in honing your polish lust to a few select shades. Better
focus means less money wasted on shades you only
kinda-sorta-maybe-a-just-a-little wanted, when you could’ve spent that
same money on the polish of your dreams. Besides, it’s fun to see what
colors other polish addicts are lusting after!
Team Thursday: Keep in mind, there are two of us running
this lab. On Tag Team Tuesdays, we’ll each paint our nails with the same
color, then compare notes. Will our data turn out the same? Will we
reach the same conclusions?
Finger Friday: Five fingers; five colors. Side-by-side
swatches of similar colors or five colors from a certain collection.
It’s the wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am of polish swatching.
Saturday: On Saturdays, we all need to take our lab
coats off and add a little bling!
Supply Sunday: Having great looking nails isn’t just about
the polish. We’ll review files, cuticle oils, mani tools, beakers, you
The Holo Grail:
A review of what’s hot and what’s not in the world of holographic
We ask a question. You give the response. This is when you get to tell
us your craziest or saddest or funniest nail polish stories. And we’ll
share ours, too. Here’s where the experiment gets really interesting.
Scientists have hearts too!
forget—we won’t do each of these features each week. As all scientists
know, it’s important to be flexible!
you’re a nail novice or a polish princess, a lover of a classic colors
or a fan of funky polish, a long-taloned lady or a short-nailed man, we
invite you to be our lab partners!
that our blog has officially been born, we need to have a little
birthday party, don’t you think? But we’re not asking for gifts.
Instead, we’re going to give one lucky reader a gift! So be sure your
