Wednesday, 8 October 2014 review

As a busy mum I do not always get chance to pamper myself, so my beauty routine is pretty quick and easy. Nails especially, I need something I can easily paint on, dries fast so I don't smudge them when my son appears asking for a snack and looks great. I love nail colours and shopping for them makes me feel a little like a child looking at jars and jars of sweeties so I was thrilled when asked me to review their site and try a few nail colours out. 

They stock over 600 nail polishes from brands such as Barry M, China Glaze and the blogger Tanya Burr's range. You will find the colour you want from their huge selection and the postage is free and first class! The website is well designed and you can find what you are looking for or browse easily.

I selected my colours and they arrived the next day, well packaged in bubble wrap and I was super pleased with my polishes.

I picked the following nail polishes:

Barry M Aquarium Caspian
Firstly from the Barry M range which is one of my favourite makes as they have so many fun colours and finishes in such pretty bottles- Barry M Aquarium Nail Paint - Caspian that sells for £3.99. I adore this colour, it has a two tone effect with a gold and rose gold shimmer and feels very autumnal. I should really use a base coat and top coat with my polishes but I just don't ever have the time. I did apply two coats to get a good colour though and was very pleased with the effect. also sell all the glitter and confetti effect Barry M which I like to layer up. 
 Barry M Gelly Pink Punch
Pink nails, very bright for winter, are one of my favourite colours to wear, super bright like this Barry M Gelly Nail Paint in Pink Punch that is Hi Shine. I love it, just glides on effortlessly for me with a fast drying time. I love pink on my toes too, always a favourite. 
There are 20 colours in the Barry M Gelly range that the website sells at £3.99 You can see I rush when I apply my nail polish and go over the edges sometimes - oops but oh well that's as good as I can do with a 4 year old tugging at my sleeve :) 

Finally I chose beauty blogger's Tanya Burr's range as I was intrigued about what they would be like. I picked a colour called Penguin Chic which is a neutral grey colour almost with a slight heather tinge. I absolutely adore this gorgeous shiny colour, perfect for autumn and winter and the bottle is really cute. I would buy this again and again, probably my favourite colour ever. In the Tanya Burr range there are ten colours to choose from on the site and they are £5.99 each. I would also love to try the purple glittery Midnight Sparkles and the cute sounding Mini Marshmallows. I found this colour lasted such a long time and despite all the rough treatment my hands get during a week they were chip resistant. 
Tanya Burr Penguin Chic are always adding new brands and colours all the time and with such a large selection and all order receiving free 1st class  postage, they are well worth checking out. Also do look at their useful Facebook page as lists offers, latest colours and nail techniques.
