Nail polish haul: Pretties from England

Haga click aquí para la versión en castellano.

Hello Sweeties! How are you today?
I wanted to show you the recent additions to my stash, my hubby went on a short trip to London and asked me: What can I get you? My answer was "Barry M nail paint!! of course!"


I didn't own any nail polish from this brand and I thought it would be relatively easy for him to find them since he didn't really have time to go shopping. I did not specify which I wanted, but I did mention "try to choose one or two nice colours for spring!"

I guess he did a great choice! He was even able to catch the Superdrug offer "3x2" on Barry M items! So he bought me 6 for the price of 4 ;) as he wasn't flying with registered luggage he had to limit himself, as one cannot bring loads of liquids on the cabin, you know the restrictions, right?

So, here are the pretties:



From left to right: Pole Position, Stop the clock and Kiss me quick. These three belong to the Spring 2015 collection "Speedy quick dry" and are supposed to dry in a blink of an eye. I will test that!



From left to right: Coconut, huckleberry and Mediterranean. The first two belong to the "Gelly, hi-shine" collection launched for Spring 2014. The third one belong to the "Aquarium" collection for Summer 2014, and it is a duochrome totally new in my collection! All my duochromes are either green-blue, violet-green, teal-purple and such, this one is a total rare pearl for me!

I've already tested them on a nail wheel of course and I have worn Huckleberry for a full mani, and so far I LOVE it! Which one should I try next? well, I don't know! Which one would you like me to swatch first?

Love,
Nati

    1. Hi Myrona, haha, well, I can get Models Own at my local Manor, and I own several colours, although they do not have the most interesting shades... but I couldn't ask my husband to find a particular shade knowing he had so little time and he went there for work, and there was the risk he would buy a shade I already own! Barry M there was not risk, because I owned zero, hihi. So I guess I must be really happy he could make it to get these ;)

  5. Gotta love a good Barry M polish! Your husband always seems to have incredible taste when he picks out your polishes! I love the colours he chose (I have to stop myself using Huckleberry and coconut too much) I can't wait to see what nail art you come up with :) xx

    1. Hi Ithi! Well, in all honesty, you DO have some responsibility in this mini-haul! because I wouldn't be so curious about the brand if it wasn't because of your posts! The Gelly hi-shine are both amazing, I love the formula! I am quite surprised too about my hubby's picks, one would suspect he's really listening to me when I ramble about my nail polish nonsense, hahaha!

    1. Thank you Shireen! it will take a while because I'm trying a bunch of new long lasting polishes (and so I can't change my manicure very often now) But I will eventually show them!

    1. Oh, I'm sorry, I also been wanting them for so long! and as the UK based shops have restrictions to ship nailpolish and others sellers put such high prices, I kept postponing! so this was my chance! lol

  16. Ai ai!! And I live in London - I had no idea about these lovely shades! Would love to see pole position before a visit to Superdrug, I guess! Do they last long, did you find? And wow, your hubby has good taste Nati!

    1. Hi Elena, thank you for your comment! I'd say if you have a Superdrug near you go check because they're offering buy 3 pay 2, and these cost 3.99 each, so it is a total steal. I don't know if they last long I have not try them all yet. I have tried Huckleberry but took it off after 3 days, so I couldn't find out, but it was perfect when I removed it!

  17. Hehe, Barry M's the best! :) They normally have such great formula, the prettiest colours, and are pretty affordable for what they offer.
    Would love to see Pole Position next and your thoughts on the whole Speedy collection.

    P.S.: I think we all envy you your great, dedicated husband. :)

    1. Yes, I'm so glad I finally got a few! I think that's the next one on my list, pole position.

      P.S: oh, well, so I guess I'll never post a picture of him :) LOL

  18. Your husband chose a very nice nail polishes ^__^
    The Huckleberry is really nice. For the next swatch I could suggest the Pole position or the Kiss me.. but Mediterranean looks interesting too. ;)
