A couple of weeks ago I came to realize I hadn't bought any nail varnishes in over a year, say whaaat! I always seem to forget about nail varnishes either because I have them done and they last ages or because I just use the ones I already have.

This however, changed last week when having a look at Barry M website. I saw how many pastel shades they have and I decided to get a few as pretty much all the shades I own are dark and these are perfect for the spring and summer months. I had a hard time picking the shades as they're all so beautiful! In the end I decided to go for these four out of the 'quick dry speedy' range (I am way too impatient to wait for my nails to dry!)

In A Heart Beat (Pink) - Pole Position (Green) - Full Throttle (Orange) - Winning Streak (Nude).

So far I have been wearing the winning streak nude for a week and it only has chipped in one nail which is amazing considering I normally get them all chipped within a day or two! Also, it dried super fast so not waiting around for years until you can go and do something else!

What are you favorite spring nail colours? Have you bought any recently?

Meet this months advertisers!


  1. Gorgeous shades! My favourite has to be In A Heart Beat. I've recently bought Essie - Fiji and one of the new super gel's I think they're called from Rimmel in 'Grape Sorbet', but it fell on my kitchen floor and smashed everywhere before I had the chance to use it :( going to have to repurchase it xx

  14. Barry M nail varnishes are one of my faves, the colour range is amazing! I love these pastel colours you have picked up so appropriate for spring, and the fact they dry quick is a plus as painting nails and then waiting for them to dry is a chore for me, I always fidget and smudge them haha!
