Nail Haul

Hey lovelies!

Today I am giving you a lowdown of my most recent polish purchases! I have had a successful polish shopping weekend!

First up I bought two new Barry M's that I was eager to get my hands on. "Cappuccino" and "Nude". Cappuccino is a gorgeous taupe colour and if you don't already know I love my taupes! I probably have a dozen that are similar but still I love Barry M polishes and maybe one day I will do a taupe comparison post! Nude is a sheer nude colour which I imagine would be perfect for a French manicure base colour. I can't wait to try them both out!

I bought the Barry M's from Superdrug for £2.98 each and they new to the range. There is an offer if you spend £6 across the Barry M range you get a free retro Barry M polish - unfortunately though my spend came to £5.98 :(

Next up I went shopping to a local market on Saturday morning and could have spent a fortune! Bargains galore! My most prized pieces were these new W7 polishes "Lava Flow", "Mosaic" and "Salt n Pepper". I just had to snap all three up as they looked so much like the style of Nails Inc's Sprinkles. So far as I am aware there are only three like this available from W7. Lava Flow is a white based polish with red and black matte glitter throughout. Mosaic is a blue based polish with matte blue and lime green glitter throughout. Salt n Pepper is a white based polish with black matte glitter throughout. I am absolutely loving these polishes and they are such a bargain at £1.99 each! They are just like some of the indie polishes I have seen around lately. These polishes made my weekend and now I have had many requests to purchase more from people that are wanting them. I just wish that W7 were more widely available. I have taken a photo below of swatches on a clear nail wheel and they all required two coats and look amazing! They swatches are without topcoat. What do you think of them?

Also from the same market stall I purchased Sally Hansen Insta-Dri "Presto Pink" and "Brisk Blue" which are lovely pink and blue cremes which I have heard are great for stamping. They cost £1.50 each which I think was a bargain too!

My last purchase from the stall was. Sally Hansen's Colour Quick Fast Dry Nail Colour Pen in "Fuscia Chrome" which is a metallic dark pink polish pen which again I have heard is great for stamping. This cost me £2.50.

Also, another recent purchase was Essie's "Matte About You" which I managed to pick up on clearance at TK Maxx for a bargainous £3.00!!! It usually retails at £8.99 from Boots or Superdrug!

So there you have it my most recent nail haul! I am currently wearing W7's " Salt n Pepper" and I love it! Blog post should follow tomorrow with swatches on that one! Stay tuned for more swatches of all of the above too!
