My Top 10 Nail Polishes

The other day I realised I don't just like nail polish a lot, I have an addiction. If I had to lose all my other polishes these are probably the ones I'd hold on to.
  • Barry M's Tangerine is lovely for Summer and just generally adds something a bit different, it also comes in useful for Halloween!
  • Bright Red by Barry M is your classic red which you can wear all year round, I think everyone needs a red like this in their collection.
  • Picadilly Circus is quite a recent favourite, it's similar to Barry M's Raspberry but much better in my opinion! It's a deep cerise colour whereas Raspberry is more red.
  • Model's Own Bubblegum is a neon pink colour, it dries semi matte which I find a bit odd so I usually put a top coat over it. (Better picture here)
  • Milan is a super sparkly shimmery pink which is completely different to anything else in my collection. 


  • 'Bare' was free in Instyle magazine, it's still not my perfect nude but I do still really like it. It works well for a variety of nail art :)
  • I got Big Smoke on the day Topshop make up launched, it's very sophisticated. It's got a lot more dimension than Barry M's mushroom!
  • Juicy Jules is one of the most amazing nail polishes ever! You can get lots of different looks from just one polish, I like layering it over dark polishes. 
  • Barry M's Blue Glitter doesn't get enough hype in my opinion! I'd say it's the best glitter polish I own - completely opaque in three coats. I wore on my toes all throughout the summer. 
  • I like Navy by Barry M as it's just the right navy, a lot of navy's can look too dark. A nice alternative to black.
Sooo, what's your favourite nail polish?

  1. At the moment I'm loving Nails Inc in general, I can't narrow it down to one! I've decided I need Barry M tangerine in my life.

  14. Absolutely love this post, I'm far too addicted to Nail Polish, the amount I own is getting a bit ridiculous! That 'Bare' by Nails Inc. is too lovely! I honestly can't choose a favourite, though my favourite brand would have to be Model's own at the moment x

    1. Models Own is probably my favourite brand atm, closely followed by Barry M! I have so many too, I'm running out of storage space, eek! x

  17. Ooh really great choices, I did a top 5 and couldn't believe how hard it was to choose only five as I just love nail polish. Milan looks gorgeous :)

  18. You know what, I was really surprised with the quality of no7's nail varnishes. Everything else seems to be really overpriced, but they're great. Lasted 5days without a topcoat!
    It would be mine
    Juicy Jules has been on my wishlist for so long! Need need need

    1. I think so No 7 polishes are a bit hit and miss - whilst the one above is lovely, I have a white one and it's appalling! Definitely pick up Juicy Jules, it's so pretty :) x

  19. I absolutely love Barry M nail paint. I have so many colours. I don't have the light blue glittery one though, I'll have to put that on my wish list!!

    1. Nails Inc often come free in magazines or with some sort of promotion, so look out for those! I doubt I'd ever pay £11 for one. x
