I think it’s safe to say that I don’t need any more nail polish. I need to stop. I blame both the Spring weather making me crave pastels, Beauty bay having cheap OPI and Boots for having a 3 for 2.
From left to right we have Cornflower gleam, Huckleberry, Sugar apple, Jaded, You’re such a budapest, Lilac sheen, Mod about you, Rosehip & Naked glow.
All are pale pastel colours & they’re all so pretty. I love.
The model’s own ones are the new gel formulation, and I am pretty impressed. You need three coats for full opacity, and I find that it works best when you apply medium-thick coats. They dry averagely, but they do last a long time on my nails, about 4 days without any chips. I wore all three shades at once because I was too excited.
The new Barry M gelly shades are so gorgeous. My favourite is Huckleberry, it’s the best pale blue minty kind of shade. Mm, so pretty. I am super impressed with the formula of these.
OPI mod about you is one I have wanted for about 2 years but never found, and then I saw it on Beauty bay for £7. Yup. You’re such a Budapest is pretty, but a bit sheer. Same with Sally Hansen Jaded, you need 4 coats for full opacity. *weep*
|This is Model’s own lilac sheen, a milky lilac. This is also my favourite mug…|
Let me know if you want to see any of the other colours swatched. My plan is to wear all these on rotation until I get bored of pastels, which will be never.
