Maybelline Colour Show Nail Varnish


I had recently purchased this nail polish when there was an offer on at Superdrug when I picked up maybellines gel eye liner (buy one get the other half price). Therefore I could not say no to a nail polish for £1.50! I picked up their colour show range nail polish in the shade 357 Burgundy Kiss. I lovely browny maroon colour. Perfect for the Autumn months!! I love it!!

Barry M Gel Nail Polish

Currently white nail polish is very much in trend. It is pretty much a bold colour and some may not even like this colour due to the fact it reminds them of school days and painting their nails with tip-ex (I never done this btw lol). However I quite like the white nail look.

I purchased the Barry M gel nail polish in the shade coconut. It applied easily, however in comparison to the original version the longevity is not much difference at all. But I did find the gel version does give a more of a shine finish for £1 more, you might as well make that little splurge hehe!!

Want Longer Stronger Nails ?


Want longer nails, with more strength and less breakage?  – I have been getting these results from Sally Hansen’s maximum strength nail polish. It states on the packaging:

How it works: Cellulose fiber formula forms a micro-besh barrier that supports and protects nails, making them stronger and more resistant to damage.

The results: stronger nails in just 1 week.

To use: Apply 1 coat to bare nails every other day or use under nail colour.


I had forgotten to apply the nail polish every other day, I have just been using it twice a week for 2 weeks now, and I have noticed a difference:

  •  My nails are harder and feel stronger
  • My nails chip a lot less than usual.
  • My nails have grown quicker.

Right, I just want to state that this is not a miracle worker, it does not make your nails grow a lot over night, I don’t think any product out there does! But I recon because this nail polish prevents breakage it allows your nails to grow quicker than without the nail polish. It has worked very well for me, I have done a lot of washing up and cleaning this week and only one nail had chipped a little, I quickly nail filed the breakage and applied another coat of Maximum Strength polish on that nail, now that nail has grown back to normal after a week. Usually if my nail had chipped it would have ended up chipping more and looking very silly that I would of had to cut the nail very short.

The colour of the nail polish looks whitesh- pink from the packaging, however once a thin layer is applied on to the nails it appears more transparent. This maximum strength nail polish also does a brilliant job as a base coat, it makes a very smooth base when applying a nail colour on top. I have also noticed it makes my nail polish last slightly longer. Below i have used one of my favourite nail polish colours (Barry M – Nail Paint in shade 161 Vivid Purple) on top of Sally Hansen’s Maximum nail polish.
