PR & Advertising

Buff & Polish is a PR friendly space. Buff & Polish is happy to work with other brands for pre-launch announcements, collaborations, competitions or giveaways, swatching, and/or to accept products for review from public relations reps or brands.


Products for Review

Buff & Polish is happy to swatch and review items. A lot of time and effort goes into swatching, photography & videography, as well as time spent on the editing process and posting or promoting the products / polishes.

Therefore receipt of items that are time sensitive need to be received well in advance of the ‘required’ date. Usually this is a 14 day minimum, but it is wholly dependent on the number, type/s of item/s (such as thermal or regular, gel or lacquer) and other factors – which will be determined upon acceptance. I often accommodate several brands & projects at any one time, so this may play a role and longer time-frames are always appreciated. Lateness of arrival may affect completion time.

Receipt of a product, whether it was solicited or unsolicited, does not establish a contract for a published review of the product. This of course may vary with items subject to other pre-agreed to terms. Whilst thankful for opportunities, I do reserve all rights to accept or decline offers, based on schedule, workload and suitability.

Buff & Polish does its best to accommodate uploads in a timely manner, though simply receiving a product does not guarantee a favourable review, or any review at all. Reviews are completed based on an honest assessment of the product/s, though delivered with constructive feedback.

Products are assumed to be gifts/commercial samples sent for consideration and whilst effort is taken to ensure suited products are accepted, shall be featured at my own discretion (on any platform). Though Buff & Polish does its best to present features in a timely manner, unless a timeline is agreed upon (or is time-sensitive such as with Collection pre-launches), the product can be reviewed anytime from receiving it.


Due to the (often immense) time involved in creating quality content, anything outside photos is considered a bonus. This includes video content (whether for Instagram or YouTube), thermal transition videos, swatch videos, collages and the like. I can provide such extra services for a fee, should you require these as a standard inclusion for your needs, and will be happy to discuss.

Despite notions to the contrary, that it may seem like those behind nail accounts spend 24/7 on nails 😁, many have lives outside of our nail related realms; including work and basic day-to-day functioning (who’d have guessed, huh?), so these conditions are in place to maintain that balance. As I hope you can understand, no one can do quality work if they are burnt out or overwhelmed.

PS: I would like to note that if sending polishes for swatching or review, I do prefer to be sent full sized bottles where possible. This is primarily due to the fact it allows me to take far better product shots – better looking shots in general, to comfortably hold the bottle in hand, and be able to advise on ‘real world’ application (such as being able to accurately comment on the same elements that buyers would use, for example the same brushes).

Usage Rights

All content, photos and images that appear on this site or its related social channels remain property of Buff & Polish. This includes when photos and images appear or are posted on the internet. Feel free to feature them in lists or reposts, however anyone who does so is required to keep the watermark in place and properly credit the work – such as with a link back to the original post if featured on a blog or website, or mentioning the Instagram handle @BuffAndPolish if reposting on Instagram.

For brands and companies: where a product is provided for review, you have permission to use the watermarked photos in your online store, website, newsletters or social media channels if you wish to do so on the proviso that you provide a link back to this blog or Instagram account, (unless otherwise discussed).

Commissioned or professional work, swatches or nail art wanted for use in things such as print advertising, packaging or commercial items will be subject to different agreements, however Buff & Polish retains all copyright. Existing work may be licensed for usage without watermarks for remuneration or other agreed terms. If needed for print, I can often provide higher resolution images. I recommend contacting to discuss your requirements.

If you have any other questions regarding these policies, feel free to reach out.





Fee-based Content Creation

For companies and brands that would like to be featured, with more specific needs or a guarantee of certain items being featured or created (such as video), I also offer fee-based content creation services. The end result is often more polished, as this is a professional gig, and treated accordingly. This as an additional service to suit those situations.

Due to the length of time involved and nature of everything that goes into creating this kind of work – skill, professional experience, copywriting, editing, pre- and post-production (of photo, video, etc) and many other aspects, this level of collaboration requires payment. Fees will vary and can be discussed based on your requirements, preferences, and wishes – once we’ve established if it’s a good fit.

At times, I am available to create content for external websites or blogs of a related nature with images, video and copywriting (in which I have professional experience). This too is a fee-based service which can be discussed according to the specific project, and is dependent on availability at the time.


Buff & Polish is open to relevant advertising so long as it is not intrusive. There are various kind of banners and spots are available for limited time promotions or ongoing. For further enquiries or to express your interest please contact Lia Lacquerista via the contact form.

Professional Collaboration Projects

Buff & Polish is open to commercial collaboration projects, with relevant brands and companies whether local or global. I have experience in various design fields and enjoy collaborating when opportunity permits. It is best to contact me using the contact form with your ideas or proposals and we can start a conversation.
