Public Relations and Press Samples

Many of the items reviewed on PolishandPaws are purchased, however I do accept products for review from brands and brand representatives. Receipt of a product does not guarantee a favorable review. Reviews are done based on honest assessments of the products and content is not preapproved by brand representatives. All reviews are my own personal honest opinion, and may not reflect the opinion of others.

Posts are disclosed at the top of each post with an image stating if the products in the post were sent for review, or purchased myself. All reviews are 100% honest, receiving samples does not influence whether or not I like a product.

If you are interested in having a product reviewed on PolishandPaws please contact Tiffany at tiffany@polishandpaws.com. Please note my typical turn around time upon receipt of the product is 5-10 days, but I make every effort to work within deadlines as well.

Disclosure Statements are as follows:

I received the items in exchange for my honest review. I receive no compensation.

Posts regarding upcoming collections, new brands, or promotional discounts for readers.

I received the item with a “blogger discount” in exchange for swatches and review,

I purchased the items with my own money. All opinions are my own.

Nothing to disclose. Usually in regards to nail art posts in which I am using my own purchased polish. If I am using a combination of purchased polish and press sample polish I will disclose in text at the top of the post which ones are press sample or purchased.
