Think I have too many nail polishes...?

As I'm still on half term and stuck doing revision, my comfy outfits haven't been blog-worthy. So instead I thought I'd share my extensive nail collection and my favourites! This collection has been going on for years and years, with my sister giving me most and some as Christmas presents, so I've built up a lot! Sorry about the rubbish quality of the photos!

Red Shades
The third and fourth polishes are definitely my favourites! I received the Nails Inc shade free in a magazine ages ago and fell in love with it. I haven't had any nails inc polishes before, mostly getting mine from boots and superdrug! So was pleasantly surprised by the quality and vibrant pinky red colour. My standard nail polish is definitely Barry M's red shade, I can't fault any of their nail polishes! I normally reach for this colour in the summer as it goes well with my freckles and my non-existent tan.

As you can see the first shade is probably my most used out of the collection! It's just a simple pink nude shade which I could sneakily wear at work without getting noticed. I was quite surprised that a Natural Collection polish was as good as Barry M in my books! I recently tried the second to last shade, as I fancied a dark pinky purple colour. My friend bought me a mini OPI set for Christmas with their top ten shades, so far this is the only one I've tried but it lasted quite a long time, the only thing was that the brush was quite small, but that's obvious! haha

Sorry for the crap quality, this one came out weird! They're all mostly the same shades, except the second one sticks out a bit. It's a Miss Sporty polish which caught my eye last summer after wanting a purple but not lilac colour (fussy I know!) But I haven't used it since because it's not one for the winter and it wasn't the best quality ever. The one next to it is a Number 17 Fast Finish polish which I got for my birthday last year. It's a great colour, purple metallic, not something that I usually wear but, this sounds strange, but it dries too quickly for me! haha I end up getting it all gloopy and lumpy :(

Blues and Greens!

Another Barry M mint colour as the second one in. I loved loved this colour in the summer, I'm sure you've heard enough about my adoration for Barry M but if you haven't ever owned a Barry M polish, 1. What is wrong with you?! 2. Go buy yourself one! A nail fashion trend which started last year or maybe year before was the magnetised polish. I bought my Number 17 polish, second to last, in a greeny blue shade, which kinda reminded me of a mermaids tail.. haha either way it is gorgeous and for a while I couldn't stop staring at them! 

Sparkly and Metallics!
You can never have enough Barry M nail polishes! I got these three from my sister and her boyfriend for Christmas and so far I've tried out the two glitter shades over the top of other colours, which works really well as they're thin enough to still have the colour through! I think the next polish for me will the the purple green metallic, second to last, as it looks awesome!

Phew! So that's all my nail polishes, I have quite a lot! I really enjoyed doing this post, coz I discovered loads of colours that I haven't used in ages! So I hoped you enjoyed reading this too and as it's quite long, you can treat yourself to a new nail polish, if you want! haha

Hope you're all having a good week!
