Barry M Gelly Nail Polish


I've seen everyone raving about the Barry M High Shine Gel Effect Nail Polishes and i've been dying to try them out myself. So the other day I went and got 2 shades, a lilac colour called 'Prickly Pear' and a deep purple called 'Plum'.

I love painted nails, but I hate painting them. I get so impatient waiting for them to dry and always manage to mess them up, so a fast drying nail polish is key for me. The Barry M nail polishes say they provide 'an extra glossy finish in just one coat' and it did just that. I hate having to do lots of coats to get a nice bright colour so I love getting one coat polishes, and these worked pretty well, even the lighter colour, which I was super pleased about.

Overall I thought these were great; they are vibrant, fast drying and only really need one coat, and I plan to buy a couple more in the future as they have loads of really pretty colours. I really recommend them and they're quite cheap at only £3.99. The only problem I have is that it's already started chipping a bit after one day, so I may need to touch them up, which is a bit of a pain. But then again, I did only do one coat.

Bye for now,

I'm starting college in September which means I'll get to wear my own clothes everyday. So I've been saving up some money to buy lots of clothes. I wanted to buy some basics and a few statement pieces and also things that are versatile and can be worn in a lot of different ways.
I found this dress in the Asos sale and I love it. It's a really soft material and so comfy. It's very light weight too so you can wear it in summer or layer it up with a cardi for winter. You can also dress it up or dress it down which I love. It was reduced to £22.50 from £38 I think.

My denim jacket is from eBay. I've been searching for an oversized Levi denim jacket for AGES so I was super happy when I found this. It was only £14.99, which for a Levi jacket is quite cheap so I was lucky to find this.

My shoes are from H&M and I'm in love with them! They were only £14.99 which I think is quite cheap for a pair of shoes; I figured they'd be around double that when I first spotted them. They're a lovely deep red colour which is really nice for autumn/winter. They also have a slight platform which I like because I'm quite tall and don't always like wearing heels so this gives me height without the heel (if that makes sense!) and also makes them more comfy to walk in.
