Barry M Arabian

Hello! Today presents the inception of the A to Z series! This is a little series that I’ll be doing with Charlie from Pocket Money Polishes, Anna from AnnaBean’s Nails, Sarah from Penny Pinching Polish and Kerrie from Pish Posh and Polish 🙂 what happens is we each choose a nail polish who’s name begins with the letter corresponding to that week – as such, today is A, and I have chosen Barry M Arabian, which is from the Barry M Aquarium Collection  <—- click to see my reviews on other polishes in the collection! 😀

Hope that makes sense because my brain is well and truly all over the place today! I realised while trying to choose an ‘A’ polish, I don’t have a huge amount that begin with ‘a’ compared to some other letters – let me know some ideas!

OPI Girls Love Diamonds

Hey everyone! You may or may not know that when I moved to Bournemouth recently I also made an IRL friend, namely Charlie of Pocket Money Polishes! 🙂 We have formed a little habit of swapping polishes so the other can try out some new ones without having to splash out, which is so awesome 😀 Charlie’s got a fab collection of OPIs if you didn’t know!

Anyway today I am using a lovely polish which she’s kindly lent to me, called ‘Girls Love Diamonds’. It’s from the new OPI Major League Baseball -MLB- Collection (also known as the OPI Fashion Plate Collection). I have to tell you I have’t got a first clue about baseball… the closest I’ve come to a baseball game is playing rounders on the school field! (Those were the days…!) I have to say I’m not terribly fussed by the collection because the majority is reds and blues, but this one is worth picking up!

Barry M Rose Hip Gelly

Hey ladies! I have a really pretty pink to show you today (I told you I was going to give pink some more lovin’!) in the form of a new Gelly polish 🙂 As you probably know if you’ve been reading my blog for a while, I absolutely adore the Barry M Gelly range 🙂

I often find that pale pastel pinks can look chalky and clashy against my skin and this is the first one I’ve tried that doesn’t look terrible on me! It has a nice jellyish finish which I think really helps it to look flattering 🙂

Emily de Molly Violet Days

Hey everyone! I have a discontinued polish to show you all today. Since I promised to show you what I put on top of my Revlon Parfumerie Ginger Melon mani, I thought I’d make a post out of it! Polishes like this one pop up on blogsales or sales groups on Facebook from time to time so if you love it keep an eye out. I’m not really sure whether this is HTF – when I bought it (from a sales group) I was a bit obsessed with Emily de Molly at the time so I didn’t even search for swatches at the time, I went a bit crazy hehe 🙂

I don’t usually pair purple and pink together but something drew me to this pairing 🙂

Revlon I’m Electro

Hello chickas! On my shopping spree recently I came across a lot of new offerings from Revlon, as well as the Parfumerie collection I was talking about in yesterday’s post. One of these was the Revlon Spiderman collection, also known as the Revlon Electric Chrome collection. It’s a collection of six colour-shifting polishes. I wouldn’t go so far as to call them duochrome as you’ll see from the pictures, but they’re pretty colours and in the bottles they look amazing. Inspired by the new film, The Amazing Spider-man 2, each bottle has a decorative gold spider web on the cap. It’s the little things! 🙂

A few of the other nail varnishes in the collection didn’t seem so unique to me so I decided to try just one, so that if I didn’t like it I wouldn’t have wasted money, as I hadn’t seen any swatches at that point. I picked up I’m Electro, which in the bottle is a lovely steely blue shimmer with a purple shift. However:
