sosu nail polish

Do you always struggle finding a nail polish that actually stays in place for a full day? 

We do too. 

That's why we were so excited when Suzanne Jackson launched SOSU nail polish range earlier this year. 

The innovative gel nail polish means you can achieve salon-worthy nails in the comfort of your own home – and for a fraction of the price. Score!

All polishes also include a brand new brush for an even easier application which means the polish can be applied in one easy action, for a longer-lasting, chip-free colour. 

Ms Jackson launched 25 colours in her first collection and this season she has added eight luxurious new colours to the range. 

Suzanne reveals that the application is an easy process if you follow a few simple steps:

"Make sure your nails are shaped, filed and buffed before applying any polish.

"Then apply one thin layer of SOSU base coat, two thin layers of a SOSU colour of your choice followed by a thin layer of SOSU top coat, allowing each coat to dry before applying the next!"

"The formulations in the SOSU base and top coat helps to protect the nails and also forms the gel-like, non-chip finish which means the polish can last for up to four to seven days before having to reapply."

The new A/W collection colours are available from pharmacies nationwide, Penneys stores and selected nail salons now. 

All polishes are priced at a wholly reasonable €7.99, and if they're anything like her last collection, you better be quick before they all sell out.


Suzanne Jackson keeps more than a million readers totally absorbed with her beauty blog, SoSueMe – but her seemingly fabulous lifestyle garners plenty of attention too. 

Not that it's all fun and games; when we exclusively spoke to Suzanne last month, she was eager to clear a few things up. 

“People are often surprised by the hours a blogger works,” she admitted.

“They just see the Instagram pictures and the Facebook posts and they think you have the easiest life imaginable, but it’s not like that.”

Still, now that she has two best-selling books, not to mention a gel nail polish collection (a €100 hamper of which you can win with SHEmazing!) to her name, we reckon Suzanne's earned the right to a time-out every now-and-again.

In fact, we love the 30-year-old Dubliner's work-hard-play-hard mantra.

After all, if five years (her first SoSueMe.ie post published in July 2010) of risk-taking, packed schedules, unforgiving deadlines, and long hours doesn't merit a couple of days on a sun-lounger, there's probably little hope for the rest of us. 

That, and by jetting off abroad, we then get to gawk at her holiday snaps. Everyone's a winner!

Interestingly, the former beauty therapist has now added a travel section to her blog… And, yes the posts are seriously envy-inducing. 

So, with summer holidays fast approaching, let’s get some destination and fashion inspiration from three of Suzanne’s most recent, fabulous trips away.


Marbella, Spain

While she hasn’t blogged about it just yet, from Suzanne’s recent Facebook and Instagram pics, it looks as if she’s currently sunning herself in her favourite holiday destination of Marbella.

Best for… Pools, pools, pools! If you love getting glammed up in a one-piece and sipping cocktails, Marbella is definitely the place for you. In particular, Suzanne seems to spend a lot of vacation time at the Ocean Club. And, if you are looking for some nightlife on your trip, the ever-popular Puerto Banus is just a taxi ride away.

St. Vincent, Caribbean

Last month, Suzanne went to the stunning island of St. Vincent in the Caribbean with her long-term boyfriend, Dylan. After previously seeing the beautiful shots of Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright’s own holiday there, Suzanne knew it would be the perfect location for a romantic couple’s holiday.

Best for… total relaxation! The white sand and crystal-clear sea in Suzanne’s photos had us sufficiently jealous. The pair went on sunset cruises, chilled by the pool and relaxed on the beach. St. Vincent also seems like a great place to enjoy amazing all-inclusive food and cocktails. Sounds like a trip to paradise, actually.

Texas, USA

In April, Suzanne headed to Dallas to attend a blogger conference with RewardStyle. Although it was technically work, it also looked like an incredible trip and it seems that Suzanne was able to enjoy a little down-time.

Best for… their hotels, by the sounds of things. You can check out her stunning hotel room on her vlog of the trip. Suzanne furthermore attended stunning rooftop parties and the restaurants sounded totally fab.

Not content with being one of Ireland's leading fashion and beauty bloggers, So Sue Me's Suzanne Jackson has taken on the role of cosmetics queen and launched her own gel nail polish range.

The 25-colour SOSU collection includes high pigment matt and shimmer gel polishes, plus top and base coat polishes to ensure a long-lasting colour. Unlike other gel polishes, the SOSU products can all be removed using a standard nail polish remover, so they're the perfect way to get that salon look at home.

Suzanne has been very hands-on with the development of the range and says, "I have done everything from start to finish. I haven't just thrown my name on this. I don't want it to be a product where I just sign my name away and get money in the end, that's not what this is about."

S! TV's Lisa Kavanagh headed along to the official launch of the range at 10 Ormond Quay last night, and caught up with Suzanne to find out what we can expect from the SOSU collection.
