About 516 (Five Sixteen)

516 Polish is the UK's first indie nail polish brand championing "swatch diversity". This means actively creating inspiration and more visual representation for people with deeper skin tones through inclusive swatch imagery. 

516 Polish offers a wide range of over 50 traditional nail polish colours, one-step gel polish colours, as well as nail care and tools. Being PETA certified, vegan, cruelty-free and non-toxic, ensures 516 Polish customers can have beautifully manicured nails without the chemical nasties!

Our Commitment To Swatch Diversity

In a world where the top players in the beauty industry tell us that beauty is one size fits all, one style fits all and one shade fits all, 516 exists to challenge and shatter this discrimination.

We really mean that. Diversity is at the heart of everything we do as a brand, and we are proud to consciously showcase our product swatches on a wide variety of equally beautiful skin tones. Catering our products to diverse skin tones is not just an afterthought... it is a huge part of our creation process.
