Barry M Grey and Diamond Glitter

Hello my bloggers, I have not abandoned my blog rather just had a week off from nail polish while I was on half term. 

I back today with a polish I had no idea I had bought, I was planning to buy it then found it in my drawer lol 

Barry M Grey, not my usual colour but I love it, it applies great just like any other Barry M I've tried and is opaque within 2 coats. 

I added a coat of Barry M Diamond glitter over the top, I love this polish it has lovely holographic particles in and really makes the grey look quite like a stormy sky :)

Barry M Zebra Nail Art

Not my best attempt at nail art today, I hope to move over to acrylic paints rather than use nail polish which is harder to get neater and opaque but never mind I quite like it. I did today an attempt at zebra lines or tiger lines lol over Barry M Berry Ice Cream, that is a beautiful colour. 

Berry Ice Cream is a soft lilac and is opaque within two coats, it applies well and is non streaky. I used a black nail pen paint and a thin brush to create the lines and finished it off with a coat of Barry M pink Iridescent to give it a cute sparkly finish.  

See my photos below: :3

Enjoy! x

Barry M - LE Christmas Blue

Hello everyone! I have here the very beautiful Barry M Christmas Limited Edition Blue foil from 2012. I got this at Christmas time free after spending £6 but had yet to wear it, I really have a lot of untrieds I should try to get through lol

It is beautiful an icy blue foil that applies with no streaking I have found and evenly, it was practically opaque in one good coat but for swatch purposes I did 2 as usual. 

The extra sparkle you see is Barry M's Diamond glitter which has a fantastic holographic effect as well. 

Probably my favourite brand, I can never have enough. The pictures below will speak for themselves on this blues beauty. 

Enjoy! x

A England - Saint George

Hello all!! Wow a week since I last posted, so sorry but I just got myself a new laptop with Windows 8 so I had just been playing around with the new features and getting used to everything but here I am back with my last A England from the sale. I have worn this for the full week, lasted supremely well.

This is of course one of my top wishlists Saint George the luscious dark forest green holo.  

As usual the formula is perfect, smooth application with no streaks and a good one coater although I applied 2 as always :)

I just love these polishes!
