Barry M Green Berry and OPI Which is Witch? Swatch

This week I haven't changed my nail polish at all, oops. I have been wearing Barry M Green Berry topped with OPI Which is Witch?

Green Berry is just gorgeous is it not? This is 2 coats and it applies simply like all Barry M nail polish I have tried so far (and I have many) lol and 1 coat of the lovely OPI WisW? which has holographic glitter, hexes and bar pieces in. 

For wear time, I actually wore this all week. Applied last Sunday and removed last night Sunday, no chips which I'm amazed at and minimal tip wear. I do love long lasting polish for when I'm just being to lazy to change it more often like I normally like to. 

Enjoy! x

O.P.I German-icure

Today I have an absolute favourite of mine I'd been wishing for a while. OPI Germanicure! Lovely dark vampy burgundy just how I like my colours :)
I had this on for 5 days with a bit of tip wear but no chips so it lasted well. 
It applied very well and these swatches show 2 coats. 
I just love it!

Enjoy! x

Ask a British Blogger - What is the oldest polish in your collection?

The oldest nail polish in my collection is one I haven't yet posted on my blog. It was the first nail polish I bought last April when I started my nail polish obsession and I was in love with these polishes as well as there beautiful packaging. I am talking of the lovely Nfu. Oh bottles. I was planning to wear this again since the sun is starting to show here so this question came around at a good time. I've only worn it once when I first bought it, it is the lovely Holographic no 63 the pink holographic polish!!

I don't have a proper base coat to wear this with so it took me 4 coats to get it smooth without bald spots >.< but worth it, it's so pretty. 

All pics under indoor light ;)

Froggy Franken Green

Today I have another little franken I mixed, a mix of Barry M Spring Green, Blue Moon and Morgan Le Fay from A England to lighten and shimmer it into a Froggy shade of green and I love it!! This is my favourite of my 6 frankens all coming up. It required 3 coats and as you can see still some VNL in direct sunlight but I actually like it that way, it's not overly noticeable. 

Please ignore the matress marks on my little finger, I took these this morning because we had a lovely hot sunny day in little rainy Britain!! 

Last nights pictures before stupid sleep marks indoors in artificial lighting :)

Pretty no?? I have been bit by the franken bug and am hoping in the next few months to have a go at some franken from scratch, keep a look out for those. I have already decided and thought up exactly what I want to mix together and the theme is Carnivals lol :D
Enjoy! x

My first mini frankens

I ordered a pack of 10 mini bottles online so I could have a go at frankening. (Which I hope to expand to my own if I can get my hands on suspension base.. any ideas?)

First up the one I am wearing now, I mixed with Barry M Pink Glitter and A England for some shimmery goodness, a bit of NO 7 Pink chiffon for lightness and then dropped in some China Glaze Stella as the main purple colour and I love Stella. 

Here is how it came out:

and these are others I made, the purple above, a light jelly blue (well I hope) with Barry M Blueberry Ice cream, A England Morgan Le fay, and silver fine glitter and a Jade shimmery green which I used Barry M Blue Moon, A England Morgan Le Fay and Barry M Spring Green. 

I'll be swatching these other 2 over the next days. 

Enjoy! x
