Barry M Nail Art Pens Review

*This product was purchased by me
Hi everyone,
Today I have a review of some of the Barry M Nail Art Pens.

 Barry M Nail Art Pens have been out for a couple of weeks now, but due to revision for my exams I have only just got round to buying them. They are currently on 3 for 2 at Superdrug so I decided to buy them in Black and White. I also picked up Barry M Gelly Blueberry.

Models Own Fruit Pastel Grape Juice Swatch

*This nail polish was purchased by me

Hi everyone,
So today is the last day of swatches for the Colour of the Month challenge (see the "colour of the month" tab). I thought I'd show you a swatch of the latest addition to my polish collection: Models Own Grape Juice (part of the Fruit Pastel scented polish collection).

This nail polish is available from the Models Own website and larger Boots stores. Models Own have recently added this new addition (along with 4 other scented polishes) to their collection and have even customized the bottle to match!

Hi everyone,
For today's nails I decided to use a metallic nail polish for the base. Whenever I go past nail salons I see all of these amazing freehand nail art designs and I always want to try and replicate them. However, whenever I search for them on the internet I can never find them, as most of the nail art at the moment has a creme base.

So I decided to incorporate this with this months colour: purple.  I have always loved freehand nail art, and decided to create one myself, I have done a couple before (see here and here) but this time I wanted to try something a little different. Here is my design:

No7 Foxglove Swatch

*This nail polish was purchased by me

Hi everyone,
Today's purple nail polish review is No7 Foxglove. I bought this nail polish with one of the Boots "£5 off No7" vouchers. This colour is not your typical purple, but I have to say it is such a good colour!

This nail polish is available at Boots. The nail polish bottle is very simple itself, and has a kind of hourglass shape. No7 probably have the best polish brushes I have seen, they are rounded at the end - which makes it a lot easier to apply the polish near the cuticle, without flooding the nail.

No7 vouchers!

Hi everyone, 
No7 vouchers are back! When I was in Boots on Saturday I was overjoyed to receive a No7 voucher with my purchase, so I thought I'd share with you what I recommend to buy! Normally the vouchers are on a separate piece of paper, however this time, they look just like a receipt, so be aware - I almost threw mine away thinking it was the receipt!

This time the vouchers are for £3 off No7 Make-up and as you can see from the picture above, I always take advantage of the offer! I normally try and buy a nail polish with my voucher, and each time try to buy a new shade.

Purple Spot Gradient

Hi everyone,
Today's nails are pretty simple, and were completely improvised. My original idea for this week didn't go to plan at all so I decided to do a spot gradient and I'm glad I did!

Here are the nails:

I used Models Own Grape Juice and Models Own Magenta Pearl

Models Own Purple Pearl Swatch

*This nail polish was purchased by me

Hi everyone,
Today's swatch is Models Own Purple Pearl. I bought this nail polish at Clothes Show Live a couple of years ago, and only got round to using it this year - I'm so glad I finally used it! I love the colour!

This nail polish is available from the Models Own website and I think it is available at Boots (but i'm not entirely sure). I have always loved the packaging of Models Own Products, it's simple and elegant. The polish has a good sized brush, which gives the polish an even coat on the nail.

Fishtail Nails

Hi everyone,
Today's purple-themed nails are Fishtail nails!

Fishtail nails are really popular, and I thought they would be a really good way to combine some of the purples I own.

Max Factor Diva Violet Swatch

*This nail polish was purchased by me
Hi everyone,
So today's swatch has to be one of my favourite purple's in my collection: Max Factor Diva Violet. This was the first Max Factor polish I bought, and was the colour I used for my very first nail art design!    
 (see it here)

The nail polish is available at both Boots and Superdrug. First of all it comes in a pretty little bottle - it's so cute! It has a really good brush which covers the nail really well and gives an even finish.

Colour of the Month!

Hi everyone,
Today I have decided to start a new series of posts titled "Colour of the Month".
For these posts I will choose a colour and paint my nails that colour for a whole month. This month I have chose purple - because it is my favourite colour and I have so many purple nail polishes!

At the beginning of each week I will post a purple themed nail art design and at the end of the week I will post a purple swatch from my collection. The only other colours I can use are gold, silver, black and white.
