Nail Polish Collection!

Hello Everybody!

Today, I thought it might be nice to share my nail polish collection with you.

I sorted out my beauty drawers earlier this month and since things are neat and tidy (for now), I figured it would be fun to photograph and rate each nail polish.


As you've probably noticed, the vast majority of them are by the brand Barry M and this is because I find Barry M nail polish's so affordable and the highest quality for the price. Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge fan of Essie, O.P.I and other high-end polishes but since I'm always changing the colour on my nails, and I'm on a pretty low budget, I tend to spend less so that I've got more choice.

To keep things short but sweet, I will name the brand and colour of each polish and I will also describe and rate each polish out of 10 (with '10/10' being the highest rating).
So, here we go...


Pinks and Reds

♥ Ciate Strawberry Milkshake- 5/10- Lovely opaque ballet pink but peeled away from the nails quite quickly.

♥ Essie Lovie Dovie- 8/10- Pretty bubbegum pink which is perfect for spring-time.

♥ Barry M nail paint in Dragon Fruit- 7/10- Very wearable blossom pink which has a subtle shimmer giving the nails a high-shine finish.

♥ China Glaze nail lacquer in Don't desert me- 9/10- Pearly magenta pink which has good staying power and is highly pigmented.

♥ Barry M nail paint in Grapefruit- 7/10- Summery brink pink that looks very pretty with a tan.

♥ Barry M nail paint in Passion fruit- 7/10- Bright scarlet pink, it's the perfect colour for toes in summer.

♥ Barry M nail paint in Raspberry- 8/10- Very sophisticated chestnut red, quite long lasting and lovely at Christmas.

♥ Nails Inc Tate- 9/10- Deep Burgundy which is easy to apply and has brilliant staying power.

♥ O.P.I In a Holidaze- 10/10- Warm rosewood colour, applies to the nail like a dream, dries quickly and remains chip-free for ages.


Purples and Blues

✿ Nails Inc Wigmore Street- 7/10- Deep eggplant purple which is lovely in autumn. Looks a little darker on the nail than it does in the bottle.

✿ Barry M high shine nail paint in plum- 8/10- High pigmented royal purple colour which looks super shiny on the nails.

✿ Essie Full steam ahead- 9/10- Shimmery lavender colour which has a gel-finish on the nails.

✿ Barry M high shine nail paint in Prickly Pear- 8/10- A muted heather, looks lovely in spring with pastel clothing and gives the nails a gel shine.

✿ Barry M high shine nail paint in Sugar Apple- 9/10- A pretty sky blue that applies to the nails like a dream. I wore this for Easter last year and was complimented several times.

✿ Barry M high shine nail paint in Green Berry- 8/10- A Caribbean green which looks great as part of a rainbow/ smarties nail effect.

✿ Barry M high shine nail paint in Blueberry- 10/10- A highly shiny cornflower blue which looks frosty in winter and peppy in summer.

✿ Barry M high shine nail paint in Blue Grape- 6/10- A cobalt blue which looks a little darker on the nail than in the bottle. I gave it a lower rating because it can stain the nails if used without a base coat.

✿ Essie magnetic nail polish in Snake it up- 9/10- A navy blue polish with a marbled effect. When the magnet is held above the nail, a diamond/snake pattern forms.

Glitters

★ Misa nail lacquer in Don't Blink- 8/10- A sandy gold opaque glitter which I think resembles stardust. Only one coat is required and it remains chip-free for ages.

 ★ Barry M nail paint in Aqua Glitter- 10/10- A mermaid blue glitter polish which builds up to be opaque in 3 coats. A really lovely colour for any time of year.

★ Barry M nail paint in Lady- 7/10- A snow-white pearly glitter polish. The texture is similar to the one described above it can also be built up to opaque with several coats.

★ Barry M nail paint in Mermaid- 8/10- a gorgeous ocean-blue glitter polish with turquoise, navy and silver glitter. It is build-able but can peel away from the nail easily after a few days.

★ Barry M nail paint in Superdrug Birthday Edition- 10/10- a clear polish with various sizes of glitter.

 ★ Barry M nail paint in Limited Edition Gold Glitter- 6/10- a clear polish with strands of gold glitter suspended within it. The strands remind me of tinsel. It does tend peel away.

★ Seventeen Tinsel nail effects in Blue- 9/10- red gold and navy glitter particles suspended in a clear polish. Glitter is plentiful.

★ Seventeen Tinsel nail effects in Silver and White- 10/10- silver glitter chunks which catch the light beautifully. Goes with anything and is perfect on top of other polishes.

★ Barry M nail paint in Superdrug Birthday Edition- 10/10- hot pink polish with silver and pink glitter. Brilliant coverage and  fab staying power.

★ Barry M nail paint in Rose Gold-10/10- beautiful rose gold glitter in a clear polish. Looks lovely over a pale pink polish.

★  Barry M nail paint in White- 6/10- Milky white nail polish with various primary colour glitter pieces (can tend to look like PVA glue and glitter)

So I hope you enjoyed reading this post lovelies, thank you for reading
