Today’s mani

Hi Beauties

I’m ill yet again, but this time I think it’s just a cold and I hope I’ll start feeling better soon.

Today I tried painting my nails with Revlon’s ‘Invitation Only’ which is a blue based green, it’s a very pretty colour but for some reason I just wasn’t feeling it.

So, I took it off and redid my mani with ‘Pink Cadillac’ from Collection Work The Colour (which I think is a UK only brand), ‘Pink Cadillac’ is a mid toned pink with an orange base to it. The colour is really pretty but the formula is a little streaky and it takes around 2-3 coats to be completely opaque.

I hope your enjoyed this post Beauties I hope you liked it, ūüôā

Essie: Sure Shot or Jamaica Me Crazy

Hi Beauties

I have another decision to make, I’m building up my nail polish collection and was wondering which Essie polish I should pick this time, last time I went for Essie’s ‘Boom Boom Room’ as it got the most votes, so thanks for helping me choose I couldn’t have done it without you all.

This time the choice is between two pinky plum toned shades:

As you can see these colours are very close and very pretty, Please help me choose.

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.

August Polish Picks: MUA

Hi Beauties,

This is just a quick post before I start work, in this addition of my august polish picks I’ll be writing about MUA’s ¬£1 nail polish range. I own all of them and I love them to bits I just wish I could wear nail polish for work.

The first MUA polish I picked is ‘Rose Red’ it’s a beautiful true red colour which would look beautiful in any season, it does make me look a little washed out but I still love it.

IMG_2703.JPG

‘Leapfrog’ is a stunning blue green polish, it looks so nice on my nails because it has that perfect blue green balance, plus it has a super cute name I’m a fan of frogs as well as cows ūüôā

IMG_2704.JPG

In my opinion ‘Bullet’ is an autumn into winter shade, I bought it in June but I’ve still yet to wear it because to me it just isn’t a summer colour, it’s still a very pretty shade which I can’t wait to wear,

IMG_2705.JPG

‘Strawberry Crush’ is a very pretty vintage pink, it kinda reminds me of Rimmel’s ‘English Rose’ which is one of my all time favourite pinks, MUA’s ‘Strawberry Crush’ is a beautiful shade and for ¬£1 I really can’t complain.

IMG_2706.JPG

‘Plum noir’ is a stunning deep purple shade which is perfect for autumn, although I did wear it back in May and loved it.

IMG_2707.JPG

‘Pistachio Ice Cream’ is another solely summer shade it’s a stunning mint green colour which I’ll defiantly be reaching for in 2015.

IMG_2708.JPG

‘Mud Pie’ is a very neutral shade but it is in no way bland. ‘Mud Pie’ is the perfect shade for the ultimate understated autumn mani.

IMG_2709.JPG

Out of all of MUA’s nail polish shades ‘Bold Blue’ is the one I like the least, don’t get me wrong it’s a very pretty bright summery shade I’m just not really a blue nail polish person, I bought it because I felt like I needed at least one bright sky blue in my collection.

IMG_2710.JPG

The ninth polish is ‘Amerotto Crush’ it’s a very pretty orangey pink shade which again is one I’ll be reaching for more next year as this shade looks stunning with a tan.

IMG_2711.JPG

Finally ‘Frozen Yogurt’ is a very pretty purple shade, it’s not dark enough to be classed as a true purple or light enough to be lilac. I think that’s one of the resin I love this shade so much, and it can be worn in summer or winter, it’s simply beautiful.

So there you go beautiful those were my MUA august polish picks? What are your fave shades from MUA?
