Hello lovelies,

 

Dandelions are back! We've had some dandelions in our garden so I used them in today's pictures. I've used dandelion as a prop before in this review and the pictures are always so pretty!

 

Today I will show you two new Barry M limited edition polishes that are being introduced exclusively for Boots today!

Barry M Limited Edition Shades for Boots - Review & Swatches

 

Carousel - coral red with subtle gold shimmer. Pretty summery colour that I found quite flattering to my skin tone. The formula was truly excellent - it applied easily and two thin coats provided perfect coverage. Carousel dried fast and glossy but I still applied topcoat.

Bikini - periwinkle blue creme with lavender undertones. This was impossible shade o capture as my camera showed it very blue. I've edited the colour a bit but it still looks very blue. The true colour is leaning towards lavender a bit more. The formula was slightly runny but still manageable and 2 thicker coats provided good coverage. I've applied topcoat.

These are lovely additions to my Barry M collection as I don't have many similar shades.

 

As I've mentioned previously, these two limited edition shades are launching in Boots today (11th June 2014) so you should be able to find them on your next trip :) The full retail price is £3.99 but you might often find discounts of 3 for 2 offers.

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie x

Hello lovelies,

 

I'm having shitty couple of weeks (but I'm not going to bore you with details) but that won't stop me in sharing some new nail polishes with you! I got approached by The Monthly Nail if I would like to sample their nail polish box...well yeah! I had no idea what to expect so I was very curious when the box arrived. Inside I found two Eugene Malibu polishes wrapped in pink tissue paper and The Monthly Nail card. I've never heard of Eugene Malibu (indie) brand before so I was excited to try something new. Let's check out the polishes...

Electric Zoo - bold blue shimmer. The colour of this polis is great but the formula was a bit tricky. It was a bit thick yet sheer so I've decided to apply it over black polish. First coat was quite streaky so I've applied second coat of Electric Zoo and that seemed to do the trick. All streaks were covered, colour was rich and it looked nice. Due to thicker coats the polish dried a bit slower so I ended up applying topcoat as well.

Electric Daisy - mix of blue and pink glitter with a dash of lime, red and pearl white glitters in a clear base with a bit of blue shimmer. It's a very unusual combination but it works. I've applied one coat over Electric Zoo and the shades complimented each other beautifully. The base was a tad thicker but it was still quite easy to manage so no problems here. Lovely glitter bomb :)
