A Secret Obsession

I LOVE nail varnishes. 

I have a rather large collection that is rapidly expanding. Its something that I don't mind splurging on as (here is my theory) I'm not keen on spending lots of money on clothes at the moment (not that I have hardly any money being on maternity leave). I know soon I will be losing the baby weight (well I hope so) and so there is no point spending when in a few months they wont fit! But with a nail varnish there is no size restrictions... so why not?!?!

I think its time to share this obsession with you, each week I will do a review for you. This blog was never intended to be a beauty blog, but I feel that this is a place to share my loves so why the hell not hey?!?!

This weeks review is on a cheeky purchase I made today, Barry M's Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint in Pomegranate £3.99 and Barry M's Nail Paint in  Rose Quartz Glitter £2.99. 

Lets start with the the Gelly Hi-Shine, this new to Barry M and I have to say so far I'm very impressed. As you can gather from the name, this gives a high gloss finish like that of salon gel nails. The colour is quite opaque too, and would be fine with one coat (I did two... mainly out of habit). As I have only just popped it on today I am unsure on the longevity of the product, however I would imagine it will be just as good as their other nail paints. Another element I love to this product is that it dries super quick. Being a mummy this is a necessity if I want my nails to be looking there best! Overall I am very happy with this latest edition to my nail collection, and will happily purchase more from this line.

Ok, next is the Glitter polish. I have loads of Barry M's glitter polishes and this along with the others is amazing! Its a beautiful colour, one that I think I will wear alot for Autumn. It looks good with a thin layer, but can be built up for a more intense look.

What are your favourite nail varnishes???

  1. That's my theory with shoes!!! x

    1. I used to be the same with shoes, when I was in College I worked in a shoe store, and was always telling my other half this theory... That was untill I had Darcie and my feet got bigger now hardly any of my beautiful shoes fit... nightmare! xxx
