NAILS NAILS NAILS
Do you feel more powerful with polished nails? OK...neither do I but a few of you have asked me to do a mini nail polish blog. So I have done a quick BRAND review and SNAPSHOT view after one application of a very random selection from my collection.
Quick BRAND review
Barry M - right up my street. There are loads of colours (including the LOUD mint green to softer pastel colorus). I am never disappointed with their collection and love the gold caps! Reasonably priced and always on offer.
Boots No 7 - so far disappointed. The colours always look wonderful but need more than one application to come close to what the bottle shows. I also think the polish consistency is imperfect causing streaks, lumps and just general mess around nail! I'm usually impressed with their make up collection so I have hope this is their own work in progress.
Naturals Collection - fantastic little buys for the price and a bonus they are fair trade compliant. The polish consistencies aren't perfect (can be a bit cloggy) but will do and last fairly long before drying out. They offer a wide variety of colours including some colours that I haven't seen with other ranges.
SNAPSHOTS- ONE APPLICATION
1) Nails Inc - Drury Lane(Coral)
This is a beautiful colour and looks really pretty as a set. It certainly sets a spring/summer mood regardless of the weather.
2) Barry M Nail Paint - Pink, Limited Edition 030
I am wearing this right now!. It's possibly one of my favourites at the moment as it's not too loud (for the office) but still adds a bit of colour to an outfit and my day!
3) Revlon Deep PinkA classic colour and definitely a great brand. Application is perfect.
4) Marks and Spencer, Dusty Apricot
Not a big fan of the application as it can be a bit streaky but
I love the subtle colour and this definitely gets a prize for
having the best name 'dusty apricot' - tick!
5) Barry M - Mint Green 006
We all have vices and this is mine.Yes it's loud but it's so refreshing...I definitely get looks/shocks of horror when I wear this but my nails my colours!
6) Natural Collection - Topaz
Simple and sublte, with a slight shimmer. So easy to apply too.
7) No 7 Totally Teal 115
I am not a fan of this particular polish it comes out quite runny
and it takes a number of applications before you see a decent colour.I was hoping for as rich a green as the bottle colour but no luck.
8) Nails Inc - Jermyn Street
This is my favourite Nails inc polish to date.
I adore this very unique colour that only NI seem to have perfected.
So what are your favourite nail polishes or do you have a preferred brand?
Thanks for reading
