If you’re a regular round her you’ll know I’m a big fan of Barry M, especially their nail varnishes. Great colours and finishes for a very affordable price, what could be better?

So when I spotted the new Barry M Speedy Quick Dry nail paints I was powerless to resist. They just dropped into my basket. We’ve all been there.

Essie Neo Whimsical Review

Essie Neo Whimsical Review

Essie do pink polishes so well and this is a firm favourite in my collection: this is a very pale pastel pink with a hint of lilac. So pretty and perfect for spring-summer. It is such a flattering shade on anyone and, although it looks quite girly, it actually feels very fresh and modern.
These photos show 2 fairly generous coats of polish, topped with Essie Good To Go topcoat (which I am desperately trying to like as much as Seche Vite… but I just don’t! I’m sorry!)

You can buy this polish HERE.

OPI You’re Such A Budapest

OPI You’re Such A Budapest

This sexy little beast is from OPI’s new Euro Centrale collection – OPI You’re Such A Budapest is a lovely lilac creme with a subtle shimmer that you can only see in bright sunlight.

I love that this is a beautiful mix between a pastel purple and a periwinkle blue, it’s something a bit different for spring/summer.

Also, I think this name is definitely one of my favourites of all the OPI puns!

You can buy this polish HERE. If you want to see the other polishes I have reviewed from this collection you can check them out here: Polka.comVant To Bite My NeckI Saw…U Saw…We Saw…WarsawEurso Euro and My Paprika Is Hotter Than Yours.

Model’s Own ‘Utopia’

Can we take a moment to appreciate just how beautiful Model’s Own ‘Utopia’ is? MY GOD. I originally bought this polish when Model’s Own were having their amazing sale months ago (you need to watch out for those as you can get some serious bargains) and I am really regretting not trying out this polish until now. It is so incredibly beautiful and I have wasted so much time when I could have been wearing it. *kicks self*

This is a soft, pale lilac-grey creme polish. It only needed two coats and this is topped with Seche Vite.

Jan 2016 EDIT: I have just found out from Model’s Own that this shade is now discontinued *wails*. So gutted. This is such an incredible shade and became one of my ;go-to’ colours when I couldnt decide what to wear. It went with everything and just looked really classy and chic on the nails. LUCKILY it reminds me a lot of OPI’s ‘Steady As She Rose‘, which is still available. PHEW.

Seventeen Pastel Gradient Nail Art

These were done using Seventeen Lasting Fix polishes in ‘Woo Me’ (lilac) and ‘Fairy Cake’ (baby pink). I love doing gradients, they are so fun. You can treat yourself to some Seventeen nail polishes HERE.

Plus, I am LOVING my new shape. My nails are making me so happy at the moment (I am sad, I know. Don’t mock me).

I did a tutorial for a gradient nail art manicure, which you can find HERE.
