Topic Tuesday: Brands you want to try is 2020

I had wanted to try a polish by KBShimmer, Take it or Leaf it, but I don't think it's on sale anymore. I was lusting after a topper polish, a copper duochrome flakie, basically Autumn in a top coat. So I think I want to try Fancy Gloss in the shade Magma.

I would have liked to share a photo of the polish I wanted to try, however I am yet to try it!

Topic Tuesday: Brands You'd Buy Every Colour Of?

I don't think this question is a difficult one for me to answer, if money was no object. Both brands I have dedicated pages for on my blog.

Mainstream Brand: Barry M, specifically the gelly polish range. I actually own all of these at the moment, but most likely will continue to buy new releases.


Indie Brand: A England, they predominantly do holographic polishes, darker ones too which I also really like.

Nails: Top 5 Spring Polishes 2020

Barry M - Ocean Blue // Essie - Mint Candy Apple // Barry M - Papaya // W7 - Sheer Lemon // Barry M - Candy Floss

Today is the Spring equinox, not that it feels like a hopeful time. But Spring is here nonetheless and so I'm sharing my Spring 2020 nail polish picks. I have done this type of post before which you can see 2019 here2018 here2017 here2015 here and 2014 here.

You don't need these specific polishes, but these are ones that I want to reach for during Spring. I seem to have gone for all pastel polishes this year.

Ocean Blue is one of the newer polishes from Barry M, it is a light blue cream shade. This is very obviously a blue polish, so something to wear which is clearly not just an off white shade. Light enough though for Spring.

Essie Mint Candy Apple, this polish was THE nail polish a few years ago. This version leans green, a light mint green which as a pastel is very much a colour that screams Spring to me.

Barry M Papaya is the brightest of the polish I picked, not a vivid orange but a lighter, muted orange shade.

I don't have many yellow polishes but W7 Sheer Lemon is one of around five polishes I have. This one is a pastel polish but is clearly yellow rather than a off white shade.

Barry M Candy Floss, is a very light pink polish. This is something that screams Spring to me, very light though so perhaps something I wouldn't wear as is.
