Barry M Speedy Quick Dry Nail Varnish

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.

OPI Polka.com Review – Euro Centrale Collection

OPI Polka.com Review

OPI Polka.com Review

This absolute beauty is from the 2013 ‘Euro Centrale’ collection which has some really lovely polishes. It’s rare that I swoon over more than 3 or 4 polishes in an OPI collection, but this one has some really nice shades and I was tempted by most of them. I have added links at the bottom of this blog post so you can see my reviews on the ones I picked up.

OPI Make Him Mine Review

OPI Make Him Mine

OPI Make Him Mine

This absolute beauty is from OPI’s holiday collection, the Mariah Carey Holiday 2013 range. And I am in love. I thought the red glitter polish (Underneath The Mistletoe) was pretty, but OPI Make Him Mine is a whole other kettle of glitter.

This is my first OPI Liquid Sand polish and I am not disappointed. The polish is surprisingly easy to apply, I was a bit worried as some glitters are thick, lumpy and difficult to apply. Add to that a matte finish and that’s sometimes a recipe for disaster. Not so with this polish. This needed 2 layers and there was no need for a particularly light hand or any placement of glitter. It dries completely matte and doesn’t take too long to dry (although I admit I did get bored waiting, I’ve been so spoilt by the speediness of Seche Vite!)

The colour is super pretty: A rose pink with hot pink, gold and silver glitters of various sizes.

Not only is this polish gorgeous to look at, I am obsessed with the texture. The rough, slightly gritty finish makes it oddly satisfying to run your fingers over.

I have so many nail varnishes in every colour under the sun, but it’s new and unusual things like this that stick in my mind. It may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but this has rocketed into one of my favourite polishes of all time.

Have you tried any of the OPI Liquid Sand polishes?

Kiko 279 Yellow Nail Varnish

This is the second nail polish from my recent Kiko haul, a stunningly bright yellow creme. This is an orangey yellow with a really subtle gold shimmer running through it when you look at it in direct sunlight. This is three coats to cover all bald patches, and (of course) a Seche Vite top coat.
