Polished Princess is the blog of a 26-year-old chemical operator based in Tennessee. She works with chemicals that are used in manufacturing – you guessed it – nail polish; hence the full title of her blog – Polished Princess: A Nail Polish Blog.
Visual Aesthetics – 10
Definitely a strong point for Polished Princess, the visuals practically jump out of the pages. The posts are full of photos which support the text and the overall theme of the blog. It has a header, which I think could be more “polish oriented” but perhaps there are limitations because of the template?
User Friendliness – 7
I didn’t have any problems with load time, in spite of the number of photos in the blog. I have a couple of suggestions to make it more user friendly, though. One, change the location of the Archives and add a labels section. These can be both placed higher up on the page for easier access. Two, add relevant links within the blog posts. For posts with specific brands of nail polish, it would be good to be able to visit online shops and official web sites featuring them.
