Favourite Nail Polishes

Hello! I left school this week to go on study leave which was so scary especially because I'm going to miss seeing so many people! Anyway I thought I would make a post to show you my favourite nail polishes.

My overall favourite nail polish brand has to be Barry M I love the amazing range of colours and the quality of the nail polish I think they are really long lasting!

I love the colour Indigo, shade 312, it's such a bright and bold cobalt blue.

Shocking pink, shade 272, is my favourite hot pink nail polish the colour is so vibrant and I love wearing it on my toes on holiday!
The colour Bright Purple, shade 303, is a bold purple colour which is so pretty and to me is slightly unusual as it's the only purple nail polish I own.
My overall favourite Barry M nail polish is Rose Quartz Glittet shade 349 is an amazing glittery polish which can be worn on it's own or over the top of another colour, it's so pigmented and I love the different colours of glitter.
My favourite everyday shade has to be the Accessorize polish in the shade Mink. It's a pretty natural colour which is so easy to wear and I love formula of it too.

I also love the brand MUA for nail polishes because the colour are so beautiful and they are so affordable at only £1 each!

I love the colour Pistachio Ice Cream it's an amazing mint green colour which I love to wear in spring and summer.

The shade Natural Days is a pretty pale pink colour and like Pistachio Ice Cream it's a really summery colour.
Another one of my favourites is the L'Oreal Resist and Shine Nail polish in the shade 120 which is a bright pink. I love the formula of this nail polish because it lasts for a long time and doesn't need many coats when applied.
My final favourite nail polishes were the most unexpected because they are from Next and I received them as a gift for my birthday last year.

I love the shade Blue because it's a really pretty pale blue colour. Just like the MUA polishes it's a really summery colour and it's really wearable too.
I also love the shade Navy which is a very dark blue colour I think this shade is really sophisticated and it goes with so many of my outfits!

I love all of these polishes and I would love to know if you had any favourite nail polishes?

Mua Undress Me Too Palette Review

Hey! Sorry for the slight gap between my last post it's because I have been so busy recently especially revising for my final exams! I decided to do my first blog review for this post.

I recently bought the MUA undress me too palette as I has heard lots of good reviews and even heard it was a dupe for one of the naked palettes! It's only £4 which is so affordable and I loved the colours in this palette. I am going to show you the palette and give swatches for each individual shade too.

The colours are mainly neutrals as well as a few metallic shades which create a great smokey eye. I love the range of colours this palette offers and how pigmented the eyeshadows are too! I also love the mix of matte and metallic shades which can be mixed to create beautiful natural or bold looks. The only small thing I would change about the palette is changing the foam applicator to a brush so that the colours would be easier to apply.

The first colour in the palette is called Naked and is a great base colour as it looks natural and creates a light colour to build other eyeshadows onto.

The second colour in the palette is called Tranquil,  it is slightly metallic and has a little bit of shimmer which I really like but it is still a natural shade.

The next colour is called Devotion this is one of my favourite shades in the palette becuase it has lots of shimmer, it looks so pretty and it is great for a stand out eyeshadow look.

Exposed is the next shade in this palette, it is a grey/brown tone and only has a little bit of metallic glitter which means it works well in a smokey eye look.

Then is the shade Shy, this is again is a natural eye shsdow and is a very similar colour to Naked but this has a slight shimmer.

Reveal is a light brown colour which looks natural and can be worn as a day to day eyeshadow and again it does have a little hint of shimmer.

The next shade is called Fiery, this is a really pretty copper coloured shade which I particularly like because it is different to any other eyeshadow I own.

Wink is again a natural brown shade which a very small amount of shimmer which makes it ideal foe everyday no makeup look. I find this shade works very well with Reveal.

Next is Lavish which is one of the matte shades of the palette it is a pretty shade and I use it as a base colour because it works with other colours and compliments nearly all of the brown and grey shades in the palette.

The next shade in the palette is called obsessed and is a dark metallic brown which I use in the outer corner and crease of my eye because it works so well with the other neutral shades in the palette and looks good in a smokey eye.

Dreamy is a really pretty metallic golden brown tone which I love in a gold eye look. It's a really versatile colour because it can be worn in a natural daily look or in an evening look.

The final colour in the palette is Corrupt, it's a black matte shade which can be used as a great alternative to eyeliner or in dark smokey eye look.

I really love this palette and I think it's a bargain at only £4 so I would definitely recommend it to everyone! I also can't wait to look at the other palettes MUA sell in their range to add to my collection.
