Maybelline & Barry M Nail Polish

First up is the limited edition Maybelline Color show in polka dots. I got the shade speckled pink, there is a small selection of shades to choose from I mentioned before that I was spoilt for choice and really wanted them all but went for this shade mainly because it was more spring. I was in superdrug half an hour and my mum was getting a little annoyed with spring in mind I made this choice. Nail effects are huge at the moment, I haven't got my hands on loads of the effect polishes but with this being relatively new and limited edition I decided to go for it and for £2.99 you can't go wrong or free in the 3 for 2 however you want to look at it. The polish it's self is quite sheer and needed at least 3/4 coats but depending on where the dotty effect decides to spread you may get away with less. The dotty effect did spread evenly. I quite like the effect the only negative is lasting power, this chipped relatively easy but I suppose if your not doing anything hectic then it will last much longer.

This one is Barry M black multi-glitter. It's got glitter throughout it comes to a matte finish and applied well in one coat but I finished with an extra coat for better coverage. I did this on Thursday (Saturday 25th now I'm writing this) and only one's chipped ever so slightly. I did add some glittery spots to it from Models own normal glitter polish collection using some dotting tools. This was only £2.99 and can be found in the normal nail paint section.

There is only a day and half left to enter my raffle. I'm only £24 off raising £100 for Pendleside hospice. That means I only need 12 of you to enter to reach that goal.

That mean's your paying just £2.00 for £50 worth of Make-up and helping charity. I am walking 8 miles at midnight this Saturday for this great cause - I would really appreciate your help and support please. Ask friends, ask family - you do NOT need a blog!! And enter using Just Giving and the Pendleside Hospice tab on the right. (It's all done via rafflecopter) Come on people it's not a lot :P


  1. Nice nails hun! The same thing happened to me with the posts before. You need to click edit and on the right side click on published on. There you will be able to change the day, xoxo.

  2. Both those polishes are beautiful. I think I'd go towards the Barry M polish more, do love a good black polish, add some glitter - I'm there. May have to search around see if I can find this, couldn't find it on the website or boots/superdrug any longer, not really a surprise as you posted this 2 years ago. Haha I'm so behind with the times. >.<
