Gorgeously glossy coral colour.
I used Barry M nail polishes throughout my teenage years but became a little bit of a polish snob after discovering more expensive brands such as nails inc. and MAC. However, I recently decided to try Barry M’s amazing range again after their bright colours caught my eye and have now found my nail colour for the summer thanks to their Gelly Hi-Shine collection!

A highly chic Barbie pink.
Pink is a colour that’s commonly associated with young girls – it’s cute, pretty, and very, very girly. So when I received MAC’s ‘Steamy’ pink nail lacquer from a friend I was slightly worried that I may look like a child who’s just discovered nail varnish for the first time. But I needn’t have worried because ‘Steamy’ isn’t anything like the cheap pink polish that I had years ago. It’s a gorgeously creamy and sexy hot pink colour with a glossy shine finish.

A loud pop of cherry-red lusciousness.
Red lipstick is said to be a classic, with it being a versatile colour that anybody can wear. I’d never worn red lipstick before, but when I needed something to go with a little black dress and complete my Parisian chic look for a ball I was going to, I knew it would be perfect. The colour is a rich cherry-red; a brighter version of the more classic shades. It’s a very bold colour, so it’s essential to wear it with subtle eyes and blush – I used it with simple gold eyeshadow, a thin sweep of liquid eyeliner, and minimal blusher. Continue reading
My desert island beauty product.
Following Gemma’s review of her ‘’can’t live without it’’ glass nail file, I started thinking about my essential beauty product. I concluded that my desert island product is Max Factor’s Miracle Touch Liquid Illusion Foundation…, bit of a mouthful, but seriously the best foundation I have ever used. Continue reading
