My Faves: Pretty Pastel Polishes

Hi Beauties

Spring is finally coming, there are lighter mornings which makes dragging myself out of bed for work a nicer experience, there are cute clothes in my fave shops that I can’t wait to get my hands on, but best of all there are pretty spring time pastel polishes,

And here are some of my faves… 

The first pretty pastel polish I want to feature in this post is ‘Apple Pie’ by Models Own, It’s a stunning pale green shade that would look lovely with a tan 



The second polish is a sky blue shade, now as many of you know I’m not really a blue nail polish kind of girl, but Maybelline’s ‘Uptown Blue’ really stood out to me, it reminds me of a clear sky on a warm sunny day, it’s simply beautiful. 



The third polish is one I really do want to try its Essie’s ‘Garden Variety’ which is part of their new spring collection, its a very unquie shade, it has the perfect balance between green and blue that creates a colour all it own that is perfect for the coming spring.



The next polish is from Rimmel’s new Rita Ora collection, not only are the bottles super cute and girly but the colours are sweet and pastel perfect, my favourite is ‘Sweet Retreat’ is a lovely blue toned pink shade and will make you look very tanned.



Thank you lovely for the beautiful swatches 

Next I’m going to move onto a polish from Revlon that has been featured in many several of my posts before, yes as you may have guessed it’s a green and no it isn’t ‘Rain Forest’. ‘Minted’ (Thanks for the lovely swatch huni) is a classic Spring to summer transition shade, that isn’t to bright to be worn day or night.



 ‘Road Rage’ from Barry M is one that I went to purchase last week, it is part of the Speedy Quick Dry collection and was impossible to get hold of, I am very disappointed that I still don’t own this gorgeous fresh green spring shade, maybe some day I will :).



Finally Ciates’s ‘Spinning Teacup’ is also a pretty pastel polish that I have featured in other posts, but I thought I’d mention it again, it’s a beautiful vintage lilac shade that suits it’s name perfectly, I can’t wait to own it.



Thank you huni for providing me with such an adorable swatch

Thanks for reading Beauties, I hope you all enjoyed this post. Are there any pretty pastel polishes that I’ve missed out? Which are your favourite shades for spring?.

Barry M Silk Collection- Darks

Hi Beauties

I’m posting early because I have a lot to sort out today, this post is actually a part two of my Barry M Silk Collection series, you can see part one here which is about the lighter more summery side of the collection, but since winter is here I thought I’d bring all of my beauties the deeper darker side of the Silk Collection.

‘Forest’ is a lovely deep green shade with a pretty silver shimmer finish, in my opinion it is more of s blue based green which makes it a lot more suitable for this collection and the season than if it were a rich emerald green.

‘Poppy’ is a beautiful deep red shade, that still keeps its true redness, I. Saying that I mean it still manages to look dark and wintery without having too much of a purple/ blue undertone.

Finally ‘Orchid’ is a lovely royal rich toned deep purple with ties this collection up beautifully, for me it is the perfect balance of ‘Poppy'(s) purple/ blue undertone and the stunning green of ‘Forest’.

I love all of these polishes so much, to me they’re very gothic shades and would be perfect as a way to move away from the more pastel shades of the Silk Collection and embrace the winter months.

Barry M: Silk Collection- Pastels

Hi Beauties

I’m bored and it’s cold and rainy outside :(, but regardless of how horribly cold and wet it gets know that my beauties will always be here to cheer me up.

Since I can’t be bothered to leave the ball of blankets on the sofa that I have become a part of I thought if browse the web for yes you guessed it… More nail polish. I came across Barry M’s Silk collection and thought why not post about their perfect pastelness.

The first is ‘Blossom’ it’s a light pink shade and the only one of this collection I purchased it last year and have only worn it a few times, but I still love it and can’t wait for next spring so ‘Blossom’ can be worn again.

‘Pearl’ is a very beautiful yet classic milky white shade. Which is in my opinion the only polish in the Silk collection that you can wear all year round, it’s very versatile and the off white shade and pearly silk finish means it will add a touch of class to any outfit.

IMG_3217.JPG

‘Truffle’ is a champagne browny glider shade it looks lovely in the bottle but when I compared it to my skin tone it made me look very washed out, this is a polish that would look lovely on a more olive skin tone.

IMG_3218.JPG

‘Meadow’ is a lovely spring light green shade, that automatically makes the ‘sopranos’ spring to mind. I really do love this shade it is subtle enough that you could wear it to the office yet it still packs enough of a punch that it makes a lovely spring and summer mani.

Ad many of you know I’m not really a blue polish person, ‘Mist’ from the Silk collection doesn’t really do much for me. I’m really not a fan of the powder blue shade and the silk finish sheers out the overall colour, not a fave of mine but it would still make a lovely mani for someone who’s more into blues than I am.

IMG_3220.JPG

And lastly Is ‘Heather’ not only does this polish have a pretty name but it also has the colour to match, it’s a stunning lilac shade which for me gives off a real vintage vibe, I can’t wait to add ‘Heather’ to my collection.

I hope you all enjoyed this post, I’ll be posting agin soon about Barry M’s Silk collection, but this time about their new fall silk collection, there’s some lovely colours but I guess you’ll just have to wait and see.

I really do love these polishes, they come in an amazing array of colours, they stay on for at least 8 days without chipping and they are very shiny so there’s no need for a top coat and for only £3.99 you’d be mad to miss out.
