Goodbye Ciate, Hello Barry M!

sunday girl


Barry M Duchess Nail Effect Textured No 333

So yesterday I was having a boring sunday, instead of sitting at home watching the boyfriend play GTA I decided to go shopping and out the corner of my eye spotted this little treasure!

First and foremost don’t be fooled by the perfect lighting in beauty stores, they made me believe this shade was pinkier than it has turned out! Regardless I tried it and LOVED it!

It only cost me £3.99 and I think this shade is going to be perfect for winter and so suitable for the Christmas (yes I said it!) season!!!

One coat was almost perfect…It has a thick consistency like most Barry M polish but just to be sure I used 2 coats!

Duchess has an amazing glitter in it, the glitter runs through the polish perfectly and you will get sparkle with every sweep!

It has come out a taupe/beige kind of colour but with the different sized glitter specks it gives your nails a frosted look.

Very Glam!

I would give the Barry M Duchess varnish a 10/10! It will last ages, super glam, perfect for this season and feels awesome. This is a product I would recommend! If you want to indulge yourself I have posted where you can get it below…″>Barry


Ciate nail caviar!

Hey you!
Long time no speak. I’ve been a terrible blogger. Having slight issues with the whole technical, picture sharing, downloading malarkey.

Anyhoo, I be blogging of my iPhone at the moment so bear with me. I don’t have access to my laptop.

Wanted to show you a quick pic of my first attempt with nail caviar. I’ll be honest. I was a caviar virgin. I think it went well. Two coats of the polish, left the second coat slightly wet and sprinkled the beautiful pearls. Patted them down and left them to dry for 15-20 minutes. And voila!

I’m super happy with the result. Three days later they’re still firmly stuck and they feel really nice!

I’ll post a picture… Let me know what you think! X


20 Questions Tag!

Thought I would play a little tag game… Let’s get to know each other a little better! 😉

1. Thing you cannot leave the house without?

Pretty standard on that one really, I’ll try not to be too boring but my keys (which i ten to forget anyway). My iPhone and a cardigan! Whatever the weather I always have to have a cardigan. People tell me off for this!

2. Favourite brand of makeup?

At the moment it’s a toss up between NARS and MAC as i’m only new to NARS i’m going to have to say MAC!

3. Favourite flower?

Probably a simple red rose… but if i’m lucky enough to receive any flowers I would not complain!

4. Favourite clothing store?

To be honest, I love fennicks, house of fraser, the kind of places where everything I want is under one roof!

5. Favourite perfume ?

I have a little love affair with Lolita Lempicka but at the moment i’m wearing Paco Rabanne one million.

6. Heels or flats?

Heels all the way, Slim your legs and they always make me feel glam!

7. Do you make good grades?

I’m out of school now but I used to be amazing in class but never in exams! I’d put too much pressure on myself and get so over stressed all knowledge would fall out of my ears! The best advice I could give for anyone in exams is don’t put too much hype on them, don’t cram and breathe. For the love of god remember to breathe!

8. Favorite colours?

I’m loving red at the moment, duck egg blue and lime green!
