Perfect Barbie Pink Nails

I love this colour! I say ‘Barbie’, but not in a bad way. Yes it’s very pink, but in a pretty, girly way. Not a tacky way.

The nail varnish is Ballerina by Barry M! With a base coat, two coats of Ballerina, and a clear top coat, I find this colour can last an impressive amount of time. Which is always great, as wear seems to vary from colour to colour, but rest assured this one’s formula is great.
On Wednesdays we wear pink right!

Topshop Nails – Tidal

So I purchased my first Topshop nail varnish a few weeks ago! And I’ve worn it a few times already. The colour range they stock is INCREDIBLE, so I am a bit surprised I haven’t tried one sooner… My self restraint does shock, and satisfy, me sometimes.
They’ve brought out some pieces in a rose gold version of their cute packaging in celebration of the 5 year anniversary of Topshop Beauty. So it is quite possible this may coerce me into a purchase… Why are girls such suckers for packaging, we’re ridiculous lol.

I’m hoping it’s just the current lighting on my laptop, but the pictures seem to be showing the colour as more muted than it is. You can definitely tell it’s a pale blue, but in the right light you can see the greyish undertone. Cute colour.
I have to say I wasn’t too impressed with the formula. On first application it was very streaky, a second was enough for some nails, but I did have to do three on some and I HATE having to do that. Aint got time for that. But now they’re all done and I successfully avoided any smudges (yay) they are looking lovely, and very blue in this sunlight… I swear it’s changed overnight lol. I wanted bluey grey!
But anyway, I know formulation can change from colour to colour even, so I haven’t written off trying more Topshop Nails, I mean, that colour range though! Hopefully some of the other’s formulas will be better!
