Remember Remember the 5th November. Gunpowder, Treason and plot. I see no reason, why gunpowder treason should ever be forgot. Here in England the 5th November marks Bonfire Night, the night where Guy Fawkes tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament by planting Gunpowder underneath. To mark the event big bonfires are built, where stuffed dolls, called Guys are placed on and huge firework displays take place up and down the country. For me, Bonfire Night truly marks the Autumn/Winter months; the darker nights, scarves and gloves.
Whilst Summer might be all about bronzed faces and limbs, these shades move down to your nails in Autumn with earthy tones always being appropriate. Despite being a girly girl to the highest degree, I can’t help but fall in love (no pun intended) with the warm rich tones. Whilst I popped into Boots the other week the Barry M stand caught my eye and I just had to snap up these 4 shades. Part of their Gelly Hi-Shine range they are such vibrant shades, and although on the darker side of the scale, not at all dull! All the above swatches are after two coats and without any top coat. The paint is highly pigmented and the consistency is great making it apply so smoothly and fuss free. As with all the other shades in this range, I find the varnish to last around 6-7 days with no chips which is amazing for such a budget buy. Boots always have some sort of offer on Barry M so I would add these to your shopping list for your next trip.
