Grasshopper Green

Lately I’ve developed a bit of a nail varnish obsession (Sian, I blame you…) and am starting to acquire quite a collection of Barry M shades. I’m not one to want to spend much on this kind of thing, which is why I’ve been taking advantage of the two for £5 offer that’s been on at Boots – for £2.50 a bottle I think its a bit of a bargain, and allows me to sport a non-hoboish chip free look for longer, thanks Barry!

‘Spring Green’ is one of my latest buys, along with ‘Cyan Blue’ which I haven’t tried yet, but have seen on other people and knew that it was inevitable I’d be picking one up for myself sooner or later. The green reminds me of the little critter above that I fished out of the pool during my holiday in Gambia last month, what a handsome fellow! The colour didn’t translate very well when I took the picture, but if you see this shade in the shop I guarantee it’ll catch your eye : )

I’m a bit childish in the way that I love bright, lairy shades… they remind me of one summer when I was at school, and got so bored in the holidays that I basically ended up painting my nails a different shade every day. Metallic blue<3 haha. I'm pretty sure I could've found better things to do, like go outside and actually have a life, but somehow at thirteen I didn't see it like that, haha. Oh dear! It did help in the sense that I can now paints my right hand without painting half of my fingers too! (Although my camera has revealed that I'm actually not that good at getting to the edges, as you can see above, oops!) I sometimes wonder if I could teach myself to write left handed if I gave it enough practise? I highly doubt it, but hey, who knows? If I ever lose my right arm I'll give it a go!

My housemate bought the Barry M shatter effect polish the other day, its so clever and pretty fascinating too! I'm not sure if I'll be using it that much, because I quite like clean and simple block colours (colour blocking is sooo this season, people! Haha) but who doesn't like to have funky nails every now and then?

  1. Oh I’ve been after a green polish for a while but I’ve never found the perfect one and I think this may be it!
    Definitely looking out for it when I’m in boots.

  2. I’m pretty sure I’m going to end up owning all the Barry M colours. Every time I see that offer I’m all ‘Oh go on then…’ haha.

    I’m not really a fan of the shatter polish though. Like you, I prefer clean block colours.

  3. I’d love to try the shatter nail polish just to but I don’t know how much I’d actually use it if I did buy it. And I’m never good at painting the edge of my nails so you’ve got nothing to worry about there.

  4. One of the few things I brought from London last November were Barry M nail polishes haha, they’re great, and so cheap! As I am moving to London for real now next week I am sure I’ll acquire some more, too bad my profession doesn’t allow me to wear it everyday, only on days off :/

    glad you’re back!!

  5. I love Barry M, they have amazing colours. I love the green, it is such a great colour for the spring. Unfortunately my nails are in a real bad condition at the moment so I can’t/don’t want to wear any nail polish.
