Barry M nails

Barry M shade 304 Mint Green - £2.99

So, as stated in the previous post, I am an avid blog reader. I have therefore, been looking into the products that have caused a lot of hype amongst those in the blogosphere lately to see what I can add to the mix. One product which seems to crop up over and over again is the essie nail polish. The variety of shades they have to offer is amazing, particularly the pastels, and trying to pick just one is a difficult task. However, the shade that seems to stick out as the cult favourite is mint candy apple. This pale aqua shade is perfect for summer and I am seeing variations of this shade everywhere at the moment. essie are quickly gaining reputation as the best nail polishes around, however at £8.99 each, the price isn't exactly student friendly.  Barry M do a similar shade (304 Mint Green) which at £2.99, is far more acceptable. And, in my opinion looks just as great.

The time has finally come. Second year is over and I now have the time on my hands to get a blog up and running…and I can’t wait! I spend hours a week trawling through blogs…it’s my favourite pastime. I used to love nothing more than to sit down with a magazine and read it cover to cover in my spare time, but I have slowly found that my fascination with blogs has replaced even this ritual. Of course I still indulge in my monthly glossies, but there is something about reading blogs - what people have been buying, how they do their hair and make-up and what people have been up to that can just entertain me for hours.

So, to cut a long story short(ish), I figured the time was right for me to get started. I have a super exciting summer coming up and with the time on my hands to finally get this going; hopefully I can entertain all of you as much as you have me!

Thanks for reading (in advance), Sophie.
