My Favourite Nail Varnishes (Part 1)


I have 9 favourite nail polishes, but I will split them up over the next three days because otherwise it would be a very long and boring post. So, in no particular order, here is part 1 of my favourite nail varnishes (of all time)!


1. Barry M Ice Cream Purple - £2.99 from Boots, Superdrug etc.

Good
  •  The colour - it is the perfect mix between pastel and bright, making it very flattering on my pale skin tone.
  •  The brilliant price of only £2.99 compensates for any downfalls.

OK
  • The formula - I find that 3 coats gives a full coverage, and it takes a little while to dry, but I expect this with cheaper polishes.

Bad
  • NOTHING!





2. Essie Matte About You - £10.95 from Boots. 

Good
  • I absolutely love the look of a matte finish.
  • It is very versatile because it goes over any nail polish .

OK
  • Some people say that after a while, little bumps start to form in the polish but I haven't experienced that yet.
  • The price is quite high, but it's versatility means it is worth it.
  • I use 2 coats to get an ultra-matte finish, but 1 coat works just fine.

Bad
  • When used, your nail varnish only last for a couple of days before it chips, but this happens with all matte nail varnishes.






3. Barry M Blue Moon - £2.99 from Boots, Superdrug etc.

Good
  • I love the colour of it because it is bright and pastel at the same time.
  • The very cheap price.

OK
  • I use 3 coats to get a completely opaque colour.
  • It takes a while to dry.


Bad
  • NOTHING!

See you tomorrow for further favourites! (alliteration not intended haha)
