June 2012 Nail Polish Haul

If you know me, you’ll know I love nail polish. I thought it was about time I did another nail polish haul for you but this time, it’s a bit smaller than usual. i’ve recorded a wee video to show you all the polishes so if you want to have a quick peek, just click play.

The Amazing Spider-Man OPI mini collection

Amazing Spider Man mini collection

I spotted this on Buyapowa and I fell in love. When I got it home I was divided. I generally don’t like the OPI mini collections because inevitably there will be a colour I hate and there’s very little polish in the bottles. The four colours in this collection are: Your Web or Mine?, Number One Nemesis, Just Spotted the Lizard! and Into the Night. Your Web or Mine? is a dusky, shimmery pink that I’m not impressed with. I’ve got a very similar colour from OPI and I’m don’t really know why it’s been included in this collection. Number One Nemesis is a smokey charcoal grey with gold glitter running through it. It’s a nice enough colour but it reminds me of China Glaze’s Stone Cold and it just doesn’t feel special. Just Spotted the Lizard! is, quite simply, a Peridot dupe with more of a blue edge. Into the Night is gorgeous. It’s a beautiful metallic blue that just looks special and beautiful on the nail. I can’t wait to purchase it in full size.

China Glaze

My fiancé brought home two polishes from the States: Riveting and I’m with the Lifeguard. Riveting is from the Hunger Games collection and it’s a wonderful, vivid orange packed with gold and orange glitter. I’m with the Lifeguard is a bright, vivacious neon green with a pearly white shimmer giving it a nice finish most neons are lacking. I’m very much looking forward to using both.


So on the video I did pronounce the name wrong but meh, what you gonna do? I purchased two polishes that everyone has bought this month: Jelly Bean and Purple Sherbet. Both are free with Marie Claine with a third available. I am particularly excited about Jelly Bean just because it matches many of my new lipsticks.

Barry M

I have bought a few Barry M’s this month. With their 30th anniversary, a whole range of new polishes have been released including a rather delightful promotion. The first set that I’ve bought is the Chameleon collection. I have bought all three and will do a video on them shortly. I have also purchased the new Copper polish which is a very dense fine glitter polish full of glitter in all shades of brown. The afore mentioned promotion is a dangerous one: spend £6 on Barry M cosmetics and get a free Retro Nail Pot. I have two so far: blue and red. There are four in total and they’re all metallic and shimmery and wonderful.

So that’s it. A lot less than usual but enough for now…

Oh and sorry about the video, my lighting is awful and my hair… my hair.

    I’ve ordered a couple of the China Glaze neons, and I’m so excited for them to arrive. I didn’t include “I’m with the Lifeguard” but would love to see some swatches to see if it’s really worth investing in. I’m just so pale and don’t think it’ll work with my skintone 😦
