Barry M Nail Polish Collection

So today i am showing you all of my Barry M nail polishes, i have quite a few that i have collected over a few years. Most of them are from clothes show live and a set i got one Christmas, believe it or not i have only brought three of these from boots or superdrug.

The Brights

Shocking Pink - This is a lovely pinky purpley colour with a little bit of shimmer in it, its very pigmented and only needs two coats to get an opaque colour.

Coral - This is a really bight coral colour which looks different in different lights, in some lights it can look more pink or orange or red, its a little weird but its a lovely colour for summer. Its has no shimmer in it. Its very pigmented and only needs two coats.

Tangerine - This is the only orange nail polish in my whole nail polish collection because i hate the colour and the only time i use this nail polish is Halloween. This polish isn't as pigmented as the others it needs about three to four coats to get it opaque, its very shimmery and it is a nice orange if you like the colour.

Berry ice-cream - This is a really lovely lilac colour with no shimmer and is nicely pigmented, it needs about 2 coats to make it opaque. I haven't actually used this one much as i have a lilac polish which i prefer from models own.

Mint green - This is more on the side of light green than mint green but its still really lovely, its very pigmented and has no shimmer in it. This colour is perfect to wear in spring.

The Darks

Navy - This is one of my favorite polish's to wear in Autumn Winter as its really dark. Its a lovely navy colour with shimmer in it, its very pigmented and look lovely on the nails, but it can make your hands look pale :(.

Raspberry - This is the first ever Barry M nail polish i got and i brought it because Beauty Crush had it and i thought it was really lovely and i wanted to buy it so i did. This is a lovely red wine raspberry colour with no shimmer in it, like all of the others it is very pigmented and only needs two coats.

Mushroom - This is a very strange colour, its brown with a hint of gray to it. I don't really use it on its own but its great for nail art, again its very pigmented and has no shimmer.

Teal - This is a lovely light blue colour which is very shimmery but isn't that pigmented it needs about 3-4 coats.

Fuchsia - This is very similar to shocking pink apart from this has no shimmer and is a little lighter, its very pigmented and looks great on the nails.

Effects and Limited Edition 

Gelly hi-shine, Guava - This is the only gelly hi-shine polish i own as i think they are quite expensive (im a cheap skate) so i have only brought the one, but i do love this colour very much and im glad i brought it, its very pigmented and actually only really needs one coat but i do two so it lasts a bit longer.

Textured glitter, princessWhen i saw this is new i had to have it its such a lovely colour its a pink based glitter with bits of gold glitter in it, and for a glitter its very pigmented and only needs around two coats to get a full opaqueness, this is a beautiful colour and im so glad i brought it. 

Foil effects, lilac foil - This is a really lovely lilac colour with a hint of gray and it has a lovely foil finish.

Base, top coat and nail hardener - This a really good base and top coat as they are both in one and it is very cheap.

Retro collection

Retro 1 pink - This is very similar to shocking pink and fuchsia but in different ways they are different, this has shimmer and is very pigmented.

Hologram hexograms - This a glitter top coat which needs about 2-3 coats to have glitter all over the nail.

Thank you very much for reading and do tell me what your favorite colour is.

Small Beauty Haul

Hello everyone so yes i have another haul for you, i feel like i have been doing loads of these but oh well, i now you all like them.

Avon Advance Techniques Moroccan Argan oil, lightweight gloss spray, around £2.50
My mom said i could pick a few things from the Avon book so of course i couldn't say no so i chose this and another product. Now i actually got this product wrong i thought it was a treatment spray you spray in your hair when its damp, but when i got it i read it properly and released its actually a shine spray you use on dry hair so that's annoying. I haven't used this yet so i don't know if its any good.

Garnier intensive 7 days soothing lotion, superdrug £2.99
This is my favorite body lotion because its smells nice and its okay for me to use on my very sensitive legs.

Avon skin so soft dry oil body spray, around £2.50
So this is the other product i chose from Avon. When i was looking through the book this caught my attention because its something different. I have used it ounce and it was okay it smelt nice and it felt nice on the skin, but i need to use it a few more times before i can give you my full opinion on it.

Barry M nail polish in Princess, superdrug, £3.99 3 for 2 offer.
I really wanted some new nail polish so of course i went straight to the Barry M stand. This one caught my eye straight away because it is so beautiful, its a pink based glitter with bits if gold glitter in it. I have already used it and i loved it so much and it actually wasn't to bad to get off.

Rimmel match perfection foundation in 010 light porcelain, superdrug £6.99 3 for 3 offer.
This is the main thing i went in to the shop for, as i have this in the shade 100 and its to dark so i thought i would pick up the lightest colour, but its actually to light so i have to mix the two shades together to get the perfect shade. This is my favorite foundation and if you guys haven't tried it you really should.

Barry M nail polish in Guava, superdrug, £3.99 3 for 2 offer.
Surprisingly i don't actually own any of these gelly hi shine polish's :o, but i had seen this one loads of times and i really liked it so i thought i would pick it up, i haven't actually used it yet but im really excited to.

Waxxxpress ultra violet hot wax (free) (there website )
Two lovely ladies from this brand come to my college to talk to us about all of the products they sell, and they showed us a few waxing demos and told us about there experience in the beauty industry. This brand is meant to be one of the best waxing brands in well as they said the whole world, so of course i had to take advantage of the free pot of wax i could get, they were using this one when they came and it looked really nice and as it was shimmery purple and smelt really nice.

Epilcare depilatory ready to use wax strips for face and bikini, bodycare around £1
I was really annoyed because i had all of these little blond hairs in between my brows and as i don't do waxing at college anymore i thought i would buy these. I used them and i must say for the price they actually do a really good job.

October Empties 2013

E45 moisturising lotion
After i shave my legs they are very sensitive, so i cant use any fancy body cream or butter on my legs other wise they would sting like crazy, so the only moisturisers i can use on my legs are Garnier intensive 7 day body lotion in sensitive and this. I must admit its not the most moisturising product in the world but it dose the job, it is fragrance free, sinks in to the skin really fast and is none greasy. This is really nice and i would buy it again.

Lady Gaga fame black fluid shower gel
I got this in a gift set with the perfume last Christmas and i thought it smelt really nice but i just forgot about it, but recently i was trying to use up some of my products so i deiced to take this out of my draw and put it in the shower. The packaging is annoying because it is so hard, so you cant really get the last bit out, and for the last few weeks of using it i had to keep it upside down. But it smells really nice and i like that its black, some think you don't often see. The scent didn't really last long on my skin though but im not to bothered about that. I don't think you can buy this individually but i you could i probably wouldn't buy it.

Pretty perfect nail drying spray
This is a product i use every time i paint my nails so i go though it very fast, but its only 99p so its not like im wasting my money. I think it really dose work, my nails are touch dry after using this which is great, but its not totally dry so they can still smudge. I you haven't tried one of these you have to.

Lush Eau Roma water toner water
I have been using this since around June time every single day and i only just finished it this week so that shows that this lasts a very long time and it definitely worth the £7-8 price. This is my all time favorite toner it smells really nice and helps to hydrate my skin. Its great for sensitive and dry skin as the ingredients are very gentle and hydrating. I am 100% going to buy another one of these.

Garnier miracle skin perfecter BB cream
I have had this for years so i thought it was about time i got rid of it, its also to dark for me and the packaging has slightly broken. When i was at school i used this everyday as my base and at the time i really liked it, its very moisturising and is light coverage. I was okay for me then but now i like medium to full coverage. I wont buy this again.
