New Barry M nail paints! Swatches too!


Barry M came out few several new shades of nail paints! On their website you can see Cappuccino, Copper, Denim, Nude, Silvery Lilac, Teal and  Black Multi Glitter. When I went to Superdrug yesterday  I didn't see Cappuccino, Nude nor Black Multi Glitter, but I did see Denim, Silvery Lilac, Copper and Teal.

I wasn't interested in Denim so I only got Silvery Lilac, Teal and Copper. Copper reminds me of OPI Warm and Fozzie. I have Warm and Fozzie so I'll try making  a swatch and comparison of both.

Nail varnishes I acquired over the last 2 months :O

I think I might have a serious problem regarding nail polish hauls...There are some polishes missing, too, btw.

[click the image to enlarge]

OPI DS series, OPIs, China Glaze, Topshop, CND, Revlon, Essie, Kleancolor, Nails Inc, Orly, Rimmel, Color Club, Accessorize, GOSH, Illamasqua, Ciate, Butter London, Sally Hansen, Rescue Beauty Lounge and Mavala. This makes 85-90% of my whole nail varnish collection. Why I got into nail varnish so suddenly (and forcefully!) I wouldn't know.

Swatch: Revlon Facets of Fuchsia

Not a great swatch I know, but I don't have a really good light in my house, so flash will do. Unfortunately, it also means that the colour is not exactly correct. As the name implies, the flakies are more like fuchsia colour not this purple. Depends on the light I guess.

Make Up Store 40% off on nail polish on the 24th August

Makeup Alley is buzzing with this sale! I went into the Make Up Store store today and asked about it. The lovely sales assistant told me this: 

"Go to Make up Store UK Facebook page, Like the page and then you can come to the store and get the 40% off discount on nail polish"

Now, I don't know how will they know that you ACTUALLY liked the page, but hey...that's what she said :P

Anyway, this MUS thing on Facebook has weekly offers. Last week it was eye dusts, this week it's concealers and next week (24th) it's nail polish. It's always 40% off. More details on the Facebook page.

I was in Soho today and went into the Illamasqua store where I found out they are having a 65% off sale on selected items! If you're in London, the store is in Beak St.
