Thanks to my relationship with e-tailer Nailbox (I curated their S/S TrendBox and work on their social media), I’ve been introduced to some new-to-me nail polish brands from around the globe. One that I’ve become particularly smitten with is Treat Collection.

The German brand puts out a high quality polish in a diverse range of shades. I used two of them today for a beach-inspired #ManiMonday look.

Formula & Application

Treat Collection nail polish is 5-Free (Formaldehyde, Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate, Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor). The Berlin-based brand packages its polish in a hefty square glass bottle with a round, sleek gold chrome cap. Reminds me of the Esteé Lauder bottle. The brush is short, flat and medium in width with flexible bristles that easily spread out on the nail. The brush is really lovely and creates a clean line at the cuticle.

The formula is silky smooth and well pigmented. I only needed two coats but I kind of wish it needed more because the polish is such a joy to apply. It has a luxurious, easy-to-control consistency.

On this #ManiMonday, I went for a beachy feel, combining a sparkling, sandy taupe, Treat Cocktail Hour, with a creamy, oceanic teal, Treat Mint Julep.  I just love how they look together! It feels summery and chic with just the right punch of edgy color.

Treat Collection nail polish is available online at, and It retails for $18/ea for a .5oz bottle. In LA? Olive and June nail salon carries the brand as well.

Have you tried Treat Collection nail polish? Or seen it locally? Do you plan to give the brand a try? What is on your nails for #ManiMonday?

    Nice and simple! I like it.

  2. NailPolishFan says:

    I like the colors but for $18.00 a bottle is high up there for me. Besides the taupe color reminds me of China Glaze’s Ingrid and the teal is like China Glaze’s teal from there up and away collection and I have both.

    • That’s great that you have lower cost alternatives. I try to show polishes I like in a range of price points since we all have different budgets for nails.

    Oops the pics aren’t loading. Site glitch or is my phone being dumb?

    Never mind they came through! Just didn’t wait long enough for the page to load.

  5. Chris says:

    I have never heard or Treat until today. I love the pairing of teal with taupe. I would never think to put the two together.

    • Thanks Chris! I really love this look. I think because I created a similar pairing for my FingerPaints collection last year, I’m naturally drawn to this combo.

    The light color reminds me of Orly Nite Owl.

    Both are so pretty. Love each color. Simple yet classy.
