My Nail Polish Collection

This has been a highly requested blog post for over a year and I've just never gotten round to getting it done. Thankfully that day has arrived where I just made the time (4 hours on photographs alone...). So here you have it!

These are my pinks and coral shades.

I love the formula of the Barry m polishes and have four pinks in shades "279 bright pink", " 250 grapefruit ", " 522 turbo charged" and "414 promenade".

I also have:

- Rimmel 60 second supershine in " 415 in style coral" and "323 funtime fuschia"
- Revlon color stay gel envy "110 lady duck"
- models own hypergel "searing pink"
- Maybelline color show "189 pink shock"
- Bourjois LA Laque "4 flamboyant rose"
- color Experts "ready"

My favourite one of these is the bourjois LA laque in flamboyant rose. The consistency of the polish is thick and gel like without being gloopy whereas the colour itself is highly pigmented and lasts for days on end.

These are my green shades. I'm not normally a big lover of green on my nails but I do like it now and again. I have:

- klean colour "teal envy"
- wet n wild "Caribbean frost"
- OPI "Christmas gone plaid"
- Nails inc optic collection "optic wave"
- Technic pretty pastels "pool party"
- Rimmel lasting finish "700 block your green"
- Rimmel 60 second shine "460 wedge of lime"
- Barry m speedy quick dry "450 road rage"
- Barry m belly hi shine "317 key lime"

If I'm in the mood to wear blue on my nails, its always a specific shade of blue that I want. Here are my blues:

- Essie blossom dandy, chills n thrills and mind your mittens
- Barry M "guava" and "huckleburry"
- Revlon "605 Royal"
- Nails Inc "chesham place", " when doves cry" and my favourite ever colour "Hyde park place" which is actually a blue toned grey.
- Rimmel Salon Pro "711 punk rock"
- kardashian beauty "lapis"
- China glaze "kinetic Candy"
- Essence 'the matt' "22 I love my blue jeans"

For purples, I have:

- Rimmel salon pro "393 Desire"
- Barry M "353 vintage violet"
- natural collection "lunar haze"
- urban decay "vice"
- gosh "008 berry me"
- sally Hansen "haute chocolate"
- Tanya burr "midnight sparkles" and "new York nights"

Onto nudes and whites. I'm not a huge nude fan. I love it on other people but because my skin is so pale, it tends to wash me out. Despite that, some are just too pretty to resist, so I have:

- physician formula "bare it all"
- Barry M quick dry "502 pit stop" and "511 lap of honour"
- Barry m gelly hi shine "402 rose hip" and "416 almond"
- Essence colour and go "love me cupcake" and "candy love"
- Bourjois LA laque "1 white spirit" and "2 chair et tended"
- opi "heart throb"

Onto my faaaaaaves. I love red and orange. Here's what I've got:

- Barry m belly hi shine "blood orange", " papaya", "satsuma", " pomegranate "
- Rimmel salon pro "hip hop", " classical red", "summer orange"
- essence Gel colour "10 true love"
- bourjois so laque "rouge escarpin"
- Essie "toggle to the top"
- Revlon parfumerie "orange blossom"
- Maybelline colour show "red reaction"
- Tanya burr "mischief managed"

Lastly are the base coats and top coats.

- Maybelline Dr Rescue CC nails base coat
- Nail Apothecary magic base coat
- Essie Help Me Grow base coat
- Maybelline clear shine top coat
- Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

My fingers hurt so badly from typing all if this and I'm not gunna lie, I hope you lot never ask me for this kind of blog post again haha!
