Barry M Under the Sea – Angelfish

Angelfish is one of the four new polishes in Barry M’s Under the Sea collection. The collection is available from Superdrug which is where I picked this one up for £3.99 having seen them advertised on Instagram.

In the bottle it looks a kinda pale salmony/peachy/pink colour which is why I chose this one. However, on application the colour is completely different; it applies as a pearlescent purple/white without any hint of the peach colour in the bottle. It’s inoffensive & a little bit retro chic but it’s just not what I was expecting.

It’s quite pretty as it shifts in the light, and not entirely dissimilar to the iridescence of Essence Out of Space is the Place which I reviewed last year. The formula is smooth & the brush is easy to use making the first coat of colour opaque.

I don’t dislike this but it’s not what I was expecting from the packaging, we will see if it grows on me! It is, however, really good value for money, especially in comparison to the new Nails Inc mermaid nail polishes.

Nails Inc London Unicorns

So everyone knows I’m Nails Inc’s biggest fan, including my best pal, Mull, who treated me to this amazing Nails Inc gift set for my birthday this week.

The Nails Inc Beauty of Dreams Deluxe Unicorn Beauty Gift Set contains 2 sheet face masks, 1 peel off face mask, a lipstick, a lip gloss & 2 nail varnishes. The nail varnishes are Rainbow Wishes, an iridescent blue/purple/pink and Dream Dust, a pink and gold glitter.

These nail varnishes are soooo me, I love them so much, especially Dream Dust which I currently can’t stop staring at on my ring fingers.

Both nail colours were opaque in one coat, which I was surprised at for Dream Dust, as you usually have to work hard for full coverage glitter – however, not in this case!

I can’t wait to use the rest of the set – but for right now, photographs show how my nails turned out. In the photos I’m wearing one coat of Nails Inc Ridgefiller with Collagen base coat, 2 coats of colour and one coat of Nails Inc Kensington Caviar Top Coat with Collagen.

I’ve wanted these nail varnishes since they first came out, I’m loving my nails right now – let me know what you think!

Thanks Mull; you’re the best x

Essence Out Of Space Stories – 01 Outta Space Is The Place

OMG! I’m not sure how to describe this nail polish! It’s kind of an iridescent white/pink/green/purple colour. It reminds me of the opal ring I got for my 21st birthday. It’s perfectly pearlescent.

I’m so impressed with the quality of these Essence polishes, this one was only £2.00 from Wilko, and I personally think it’s comparable to the Nails Inc unicorn polish which is priced at £14.00.

Application was easy due to the shape of the brush and the quality of the polish which meant it was opaque after just one coat.

Photographs show a base coat, 2 coats of colour and a top coat.

Mavala Mango Orange

This week’s manicure and pedicure is done using a nail polish I got for my birthday from my lush mate Flissy.

Mavala Mango Orange is a pearlescent creamy orange colour, application was smooth and easy. The colour was perfectly opaque after one coat.

I really like this colour, it makes me happy to look at it. Photograph shows one coat of Essie Grow Stronger base coat, two coats of colour and one coat of Essie Good To Go top coat.

Thanks for reading!
