Today I have swatches from a new-to-me brand, True Brit London. They're a British brand (as you might have gathered) and I love featuring British brands on the blog! Their polishes are 6-free and are made with Vitamin E, Elderflower and Rose extract...sounds fancy, so let's take a look
My polishes arrived in a sleek black magnetic box, adorned with True Brit London ribbon with the polishes safely nestled amongst shredded paper. I'm a sucker for branded packaging!
I was sent 6 colours plus a top coat and base coat. Gloss Top Coat is quite a thick one, it has a plumping effect and isn't quick dry, but is perfect if you want a super glossy finish. Caviar Base Coat is a creamy pink base that dries clear and filled my ridges pretty well, even though it's not advertised as a ridge filler. Really loved the base coat, actually!
The bottles are quite unique, they're big chunky squares and very sturdy (the square lid removes to reveal a smaller round one)
Minted is a mint green creme with subtle silver shimmer. The shimmer is more visible in real life than on camera! Lovely formula, I used 2 coats plus gloss top coat

Golly Gosh is a buttercup yellow jelly. This took 4 coats to build up alone, which is much too sheer for my tastes, but you could layer it over a white and only need 1-2 coats. Shown is 4 coats plus gloss top coat

Rule Britannia is a warm red creme. Super pigmented, 1 coat formula! Shown is 1 coats plus gloss top coat
True Brit London - Rule Britannia
Chelsea is a bright blue shimmer with teeny tiny glassflecks. "Blended with soft pearls" according to the website! Beautifully shimmery in real life. I used 3 thin coats plus gloss top coat but you could get away with 2 thick ones.

Shoreditch is a black creme with fine silver glitter. The formula here was a bit too thick to use so I thinned it out with polish thinner and it was good to go. I used 2 coats plus gloss top coat

The cremes here have a great formula and I love the glitter I tried, it's just a shame it needed thinning out before use! True Brit London have some lovely looking collections including English Rose and Contemporary, let me know what you think!
