Studio M - Whose That Girl

Hey everyone! 
So it seems that as soon as my nails finally get to a nice length,something always happens. 
Like this -


Argh! I was opening my freezer when this happened! It is now a very sad nubbin compared to my others. So todays nails is one I found that I hadn't got round to posting.




This was bought in a blog sale ages ago and I've never really got round to using it. I love the color but it is so hard to work with. This is 3 coats and you can still see brush marks.

NOTD Coral Earthquake

Hello everyone. 

Hope you all had a great weekend,let's hope that's the last we see of the April showers. How are we in May already?! This year is going so fast. 

I had a massive breakage on my nails last week so I decided to file them all down. They are a lot shorter now.

I thought I would go for something to lift my spirits on my nails and something summery.

Cue Barry M - Coral. I love how bright this polish is. This is 2 coats,one was good but you could still see my nail line so I added another.


I haven't used a crackle polish in a while so I thought I'd add a white one. W7 have to be the best range when it comes to crackle polishes. They crackle so much better than other brands I use. I used Earthquake White

Hi everyone! I'm loving Barry M polishes at the moment,they are just so easy to use and I have so many colours I'm never stuck for ideas. 

Here's todays nails featuring Barry M - Shocking Pink


I had to add a little nail art and did so using the good old scotch tape on my ring finger. I taped it off and used this Twilight nail polish that has no name.

Max Factory - Fantasy Fire

After reading a few blog post about this nail polish I thought I'd go and buy it and see what the fuss was. It was so hard to find,I went into Boots and Superdrug a number of times trying to find it. I finally found it in Superdrug. This tiny little bottle (5ml) cost £3.99, at first I wasn't to sure about spending that much on such a small bottle but I ended up buying. 

Check out that gorgeous colour on my thumb!

Be aware though when I first tired it I had to apply 4 coats! It is very sheer and I would recommend applying over another polish. I decided to try it over Barry M - Vivid Purple and my oh my it looks gorgeous.

In the light this flashes from red,gold,blue and green.





I think next time I use this I'll layer it. There is too much prettiness in that bottle to waste.

NOTD - Neon Spring

My sister knows how much of an obsession I have with nail varnish,sometimes she feeds this habit. She is always buying me nail varnishes that she sees that she thinks I'd like. She's probably reading this now so Hi Siobhan! 

She came to my house the other day with some varishes that she had picked up from Primark. These are different to the previous ones that they sold - here's an old post featuring the previous ones

The new ones are smaller and there are alot more choice.
Here are the ones that I got.

None of the varnishes had names on them.
 They applied ok,the pink and orange only needed 1 coat but I only have short nails at the moment so didnt need a lot of varnish. The yellow and green however needed 2 coats.

Onto the NOTD

Neon Spring



What I Used

On Each Nail - China Glaze - Snow Globe
