Welcome to Polished by Leanne

I am a 30+ Leeds lass that has a healthy obsession with all things beauty. As well as working on this blog, I also work as a Beauty Advisor at Marks and Spencer.

You know that look on someone’s face when you’re talking to them about something they are clearly not interested in? You know, the one where their eyes slowly begin to glaze over? That look inspired me to create this blog. With all the interest and passion in nails, makeup and skincare bubbling away in my mind, I needed people that I could chat to who weren’t going to give me that glazed over look. Well those people are you!

Here at Polished by Leanne we chat about nails and beauty, provide polish swatches and reviews, have a dabble in nail art and design, we even create make up looks and give honest beauty product reviews. Here are a few of my favourite posts that I would love for you to have a little nosey at before exploring the rest of the blog:

As you can see, it’s not just about nails here, there is a good mix of beauty to keep things fresh and interesting. Another thing is that not every post is going to be an essay, sometimes it’s nice to get straight to the point! But don’t just take my word for it…

Leanne is a fantastic, friendly and hard working blogger. I always look forward to her posts and she gives me serious flatlay envy!

Brand Collaborations

One of the many perks of working on Polished by Leanne is the amazing opportunities I’ve had to collaborate with some of my favourite brands that I love, trust and recommend to you guys without hesitation. Here I must give a special mention to Leighton Denny and his PR Teams who have been such a pleasure to work with on a regular basis, I hope there will be many more collaborations to come in the future.

I choose to work with Leanne because she creates lovely images, flawless nail colour swatches and honest formulation reviews.
