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).

Purple – Rainbow Series

Hey everyone! Today myself and Charlie of Pocket Money Polishes  are doing the Rainbow Series a few days late, due mainly to my own lack of organisation! Today is purple – purple’s not a colour that immediately sticks out in my head as being a favourite, but I had a look through my collection and I have a huuuuge amount of purple favourites – again these change all the time, but at the moment some of the ones that really appeal to me are in this post 🙂

Models Own Duck Speckled Eggs

Hey everyone! Feeling very tired today so this will probably be a short one! I’m getting through the Models Own Speckled Eggs polishes, so far I’ve shown you Magpie, Swan and Dove and today I have Duck to show you. One could possibly say that duck eggs are blue, although they’re definitely green-leaning (I give up on the whole deciphering names from colours thing, I don’t think they really did make the names according to the colour of the eggs… how fanciful of me!)

Models Own Swan Speckled Eggs

Hey chickas! I have another Models Own Speckled Eggs polish to show you today! So far I’ve shown you Magpie and Dove. I have to confess to never having seen a lilac swan or swan egg, but hey, it’s a pretty colour so I’ll go with it 😉 I’m really enjoying this collection, it’s just so springy and I can’t get enough! I mentioned before about how I’m really into pastels at the moment, so maybe that’s why!

Hope you are enjoying the blogposts on them too… there’s still two more to go, hehe!

Barry M Papaya Gelly

Hey everyone!! 🙂 Today have a really springy polish to show you. When I first got this, I wasn’t very keen – I was dead set in my mind that oranges weren’t for me. But I pulled this out the other day, and thought actually, I really love this! I’ve found a few of my tastes in nail polish have changed over the years, for example I used to adore a nice shimmery dark blue, but I think I went overboard with them and now I’m not keen at all! And pinks have definitely taken a back seat, where I used to love them. Mint greens I used to think would look terrible on me but now I love them! What colours for you have changed in your estimations?

Papaya was released around about this time last year, as part of the Spring Gelly collection along with Dragon Fruit, Green Berry and Lychee. I’m dying to get my hands on the 2014 Spring Gellys but I do still think that the 2013 collection held four perfect Spring staples.
