I’m not a vegan but I think it’s nice to support the vegan community, the products are cruelty free and ‘5-free’ too of course! I’ve been meaning to buy some of their nail polishes for a while and I finally decided on the Matte Pastels set, which cost me £15 and included 5 matte pastel colours – £3 each!
Today I have the brand new Barry M Speedy Quick Dry SS16 nail paints for you. Four new polishes have been released and I have to say they’re all pretty neutral but I love them. Let’s crack on…
I’ve shared with you on a few occasions Poundland’s Make Up Gallery Time to Shine Quick Dry Nail Colours… once here and a second time here.. and today I have some more for you. Now I know they’re pastel colours but I really do like mixing it up in the winter and wearing the lighter colours as well as the dark autumnal/winter colours. Please note that all swatches are more true to colour than the solo bottle shots! Not sure what happened there…
Pink Sherbet is a lovely soft peachy pink that only needed 2 coats for a great application. Sorry I smudged the matte swatch!
Mint Milkshake is a lovely mint green pastel shade, which again only took 2 coats for a smooth opaque finish 🙂
Lavender Cream is a pale lilac that, like most other pale lilacs I have used, needed 3 coats for a good finish but it’s still a gorgeous colour and for £1 you can’t really complain.
Bambino Blue is a pastel blue that unfortunately needed a good 3 coats before it started to look good, which I don’t normally find I have trouble with in other pale blue nail polishes.
So there we have it – a quick post on these stunning pastel Poundland polishes
Today I have my favourite mani I’ve ever done! I’ve used all Barry M nail paints for this skittle mani. I have an unexpected trip home and I haven’t been for a while so I wanted to do my nails for the occasion! I used the textured nail polish in Lady (far left) and Ridley Road (far right), Gellies in Prickly pear (left) and sugar Apple (right) and for the base on all but 2 of my nails Matt White, which I’ve reviewed here.
I started off with my usual, Chip Skip and Nail Envy by O.P.I. My thumb is 3 coats of Matt White and 1 coat of Ridley Road, I used striping tape to get the triangles. My index finger is Prickly Pear and one of my nail studs from Cheeky. On my middle finger is 3 coats of Matt White and 1 coat of Lady. My ring finger is again 3 coats of Matt White and I sponged on a gradient of Sugar Apple and Prickly Pear – I also used striping tape for this design. Finally, my pinky is 2 coats of Sugar Apple and the mini polkadots were applied with my white nail art pen- also Barry M. I finished it all off by applying my favourite HK Girl Top Coat to my index, ring and pinky fingers 🙂
I love these pastel skittle nails 🙂 feels summery. I’d love to hear what you thought of them!
