Barry M Chameleon!!

Hiya guys (again!!)

So i've seen lots of reviews on this nail polish some good and some not so good. It's something i've wanted to try out for a while so i took full advantage of having a few extra pounds in my purse and brought one. 
I couldn't decide which one to get but eventually settled on the pink one. 
These are the 3 colours available

First things first is to apply 2 coats of the polish. Simples!! here is a few swatches....

I personally think this colour alone is gorgeous!! It's a mid tone metallic pink and is quite a thick and creamy polish so very easy to apply.
When that is dry you add a clear top coat for the magic to take effect. I had read somewhere that only the barry m top coat works but as i didn't have that i used models own top coat.
I have to say it worked perfectly!! It's so quick and simple and you can create different designs so easily.
here's a few pictures.

As you can see the difference in colours isn't as drastic as maybe the silver or the blue but the purple it produces is a beautiful colour too. These pictures are with flash so the purple does look a bit lighter then it actually is. 
I have to say even tho i've only tried the one i'm very impressed with this effect polish. It's something people who are new to nail art would really appreciate i feel as it's just so simple!! Also you effectively get 2 colour nail varnishes for £3.99 which is a really good price as well.
Obviously the effect could depend on the thickness of the topcoat so just make sure you have a reasonably thick one. Oh and don't get carried away when you've done the design and put a top coat over the top as your design will disappear!!

Look out for some more reviews and nail art coming soon!!


something a bit different!!

Hiya guys!!

Firstly i think an apology is due. I haven't posted in a while as i've had a death in the family so have had funeral arrangements etc to be dealing with. I'm not going to go into it but i notice some of you beautiful people have still been clicking on my blog so thank you!!

On my last post i said i would do a blog on my halloween nails, some reviews and something a bit different. Well this is the something a bit different post!!

On Halloween i ventured down to blackpool for a 3 day break as i was finally going to meet my idol Karen Barber!!! For anyone unsure of who she is, she's a professional ice skater. I have to say she's amazing. I've admired her for so many years and it was such a dream come true meeting. I had a skating lesson with her and Dan Whiston and my socks were well and truly rocked!!
Yes i was a complete idiot as i was so nervous but it was the best 2 hours of my life.
This is me with Dan......i'll save my karen on for later!!

On the 1st November i have to say i was on a massive comedown!! it was horrible!! I spent the day doing as much sightseeing as you can in blackpool in the pouring rain, i went to the sea life centre and madame tussauds. Is it weird i was a bit starstruck with waxworks??.......

Just a few pictures!!

Then on the 2nd November i had a ticket to see Kyran Brackens ice party which karen and dan were performing in. I have one word to describe it. Amazing. All the skaters were fantastic and there was a beautiful tribute to stephen gately which i have to be honest reduced me to tears within the first minute!!
Karen and Dan skated to Me and Mrs Jones which was such a beautiful performance. And the best bit, was the "cast" (don't know if that's what you'd call them!!) Skated round the rink at the end and Karen gave me a hug!! i nearly died.

I don't really know what more to say as the whole 3 days were such a blur!! I'm going to get straight on and do a review of a nail polish now and post it so you'll get 2 posts in 1 day!! lucky people hehe.
I'll leave you with my favourite picture tho which of course is of me and Karen.
Thanks again guys for still clicking and looking
