Seaweed Nail Art – MoYou Doodles Plate 07

Hello friends!  I’m afraid I’ve another stamping manicure to show you today – I’ve caught the stamping bug well and truly and I don’t think it’s going anywhere soon! 😛

Andy was kind enough to treat me to three stamping plates from MoYou London – eek! I was so excited it was ridiculous! They arrived two days ago and I would guess I’ve spent a good 8 hours just playing around with them. And during that playing around time, I came up with this manicure 🙂

This is possibly my favourite stamping plate in the world ever, so of course I had to show you this one asap! I’ll be using more of it in the future, but for now I’m showing you the seaweedy bits!

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!

Barry M Pacific

Hey everyone! It’s another one from the Barry M Aquarium  today! I am all over this collection seriously – I’m not sure whether it’s been my resisting buying for so long or whether they really are amazing, but I am loving them!! Here is my second favourite of the duochromey ones – Pacific (following the water theme!)

I feel like I’ve seen this colour before in a polish but I don’t own any like it so I’m fine with that. 🙂 I do love a good teal polish! A quick note on the pictures – my camera picked up the brush stroke pattern really well (sometimes high definition isn’t such a good thing I suppose!) but basically the polish doesn’t look as brush-strokey in person as it does in the pics. But no matter what I did, it wasn’t happening through the lens!

Barry M Treasure Chest

Hello! Here is another polish from the Barry M Aquarium Collection – this is called Treasure Chest. I have a theory that this is a close match for OPI Gaining Mole-Mentum, which has recently been released as part of the Muppets Most Wanted collection – Treasure Chest is just missing the silxver shards. Brands slowly seem to be picking up on the metallic shards trend – there were a few around at Christmas; Bourjois Vampire Vanity was a big one which was a gold shard topcoat. And now there’s OPI, Barry M, L’Oreal and more jumping on the bandwagon – albeit slower than some other trends. But I think this might be a thing this summer!

Barry M Caspian

Hello everyone! I am unbelievably excited to be showing you the Barry M Aquarium Collection this week. As I’ve mentioned before, we’ve been pinching the pennies for a little while, so things like nail polish have taken a slightly inferior seat recently compared to things like food and rent! However now I’m working and had my first payslip I’ve been able to treat myself to the new collection, which I’ve been lusting after since the moment I saw they were coming out!!

The Aquarium Collection has been the top of my list (you know how I feel about my beloved Barry M!) because while duochromes have been ‘in’ for a good 2 years, brands seem to keep releasing the same colours – however I spotted at least two which look totally unique to me in this collection! So on Friday I visited Boots and Superdrug… because I felt like if I bought 12 polishes in one go I’d be exposed for the true addict I am…! So I got 6 from each (which still raised two sets of eyebrows… but I needed them!!) as they had virtually the same offer on (Boots buy one get one half price and Superdrug two for £6 on all £3.99 Barry M Nail Paints).
