5FAV...Nail Varnish.

Hi There :)
For my second post I though I would start a series where I list my 5 favourites of something. It could be anything from socks to beaches! Sooo here it is the first '5FAV' post! I thought I would start with nail varnishes as I have so many that I love but there are a few that stand out for me! This '5FAV' will be updated throughout the year but at the moment these are my favourites.
My number one favourite nail varnish in the whole of my collection is the BarryM Limited Edition (030). It doesn't have an actual name for the colour but I got it at the start of 2012 I think and have loved it ever since. I try not o use it too much as I don't want it to run out hahaa. As it is a limited edition it's not very helpful if you end up falling in love with the shade like me but I think they do one similar called Berry Ice Cream (308) in their permanent collection .
My second favourite is the Essie 'Lapiz of Luxury' which is a beautiful light blue perfect for summer days by the beach. Like many people I have got the Essie bug ever since they became available in Boots. There are so many shades I would like to try in the future but when I went this was my favourite shade that I could see. I especially love the Essie brushes as they are slightly larger than most other brands meaning it gives really good colour coverage on the nail.
Moving on to another one of my favourite nail varnish brands, Models Own. I have only recently started purchasing their nail varnishes but there Hedkandi range is so good! I cant wait until summer gets here as the colours are quite bright but this glitter one has been really good for parties over the winter months. The one featured above is the Hedkandi 'Ibiza Mix' (HK04) and is a mix of purple, gold and turquoise glitter which looks amazing over a black nail polish.

Another glitter polish I am loving is the BarryM 'Aqua Glitter' (340). It is a very fine turquoise glitter mixed with slightly larger confetti style pieces. I mainly wear it over the Jack Wills 'Violet' nail polish which creates a lovely everyday nail that is perfect for school.

The final shade in my '5FAV' nail varnish collection is the Models Own Hedkandi 'Hedonist' (HK05) which is a lovely neony red, although the colour is quite hard to describe as it seems to change in depending on the light! This is another shade I love for the summer months as it is quite bright but it also gives a bit of colour to some of my winter outfits as well.
I hope you enjoyed my first '5FAV' post I really enjoyed making it! I hope to post some other in the series soon :) If you have any ideas of things you would like me to feature then leave me a comment or tweet me as I would love to hear from you!

    3. Thank you so much! :) and yeaa BarryM is so good but you should definitely give Essie a try as they have a few more subtle tones compared to BarryM ;)
