Lilac Lovin'



It's super sunny here in Ireland (for a change) & so I've grasped the opportunity to wear bright colours with both hands! I spotted this Barry M Nail Paint a while back in Boots for £2.99 and thought 'Why Not?' I never really bought bright nail polishes before that because as you can probably see I am very, very pale & thought that bright colours would exaggerate that, but BOY was I wrong!

The polish is in 'Berry Ice cream' and is a lovely pastel lilac colour - perfect for sunny, summer weather. It has a glossy finish and much to my surprise it is super long lasting! I wore this polish throughout my exams and despite the furious note taking and revision plus all of the fidgety nervousness I experienced - It did not chip for a whole 7 days!!  For the price I paid I am more than happy with the quality of this polish and would definitely recommend  it to anyone looking for a brilliant, yet affordable nail polish!



(I also just noticed how much lilac is in this post - Ooops! I never realised I liked it so much!!)

Have you ever tried Barry M Nail Paint?

  2. OMG this is my fave nail polish! I wear it all the time. And you're right, it's super long lasting, it's weird because I've bought the same nail varnish in a different color, but it didn't seem to last as long xx
