Barry M Gelly Nail Paint Dupe

DSC00375 DSC00376

Who wants a shade that there but it’s not in your face, goes with every outfit, looks effortlessly chic and will stand the test of time?

I know I do, Being a huge Nails Inc Porchester Square lover but hating the lovely £11 price tag. I have always been on the look out for a dupe and ladies I think I have found it. Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint in Almond fits the bill perfectly.

Nails Inc Porchester Square is slightly more lilac in tone but you can only see that if you look really closely.

The key to applying this nail polish is to apply really thin layers. If you go in to thick it just look gloopey.

Any other nail polish dupes I should know about?

#LLAMmeetup Goodie Bag


Last weekend I was lucky enough to be invited to the LoveLife and Make up meetup in Dublin. It was organised by the beautiful Hannah. At the meet up I met lots of lovely irish bloggers and we all got a lovely goodie bag.

In my goodie bag there was;


Rimmel Scandaleyes Mascara by Kate Moss 

The scandaleyes mascara a “broken heart brush” which is just a thick bristled brush which is great for creating volume! I got two colours in the mascara that I am really excited to try. I have 005 Eye Rock Sapphire which is a gorgeous navy colour and 004 eye rock jet black which is a jet black.


Rimmel Kate Moss Salon Pro Nail Polish

I got two beautiful colour 444 Seduce which is a deep purple and 244 Goddess which is a peachy nude colour.


Balmi Moisturising Lip Balm 

This is like an eos lip balm but I find it more moisturizing.


Water Wipes

I love these wipes. They are very gentle on the skin and they remove all traces of make up!

Benefit Big Easy

I got some samples of Benefit’s Big Easy BB cream which I am really excited to try.


Thank you again Hannah for organising this event. It was such a nice day and a enjoyed meeting everyone!

Manicure Monday | Chanel May



I thought for today’s mani monday I would use a beautiful spring colour to help us through this depressing weather. If you are living in the UK and Ireland you know what I mean. I hope you’re all safe!

I know that the formula of Chanel nail polishes is crap but you can’t beat the feeling of wearing a chanel nail polish. I love this “true pink” colour called May.  Chanel Nail polishes retail for £18.

What’s your favourite Chanel nail polish colour?

Mani Mondays | Barry M Raspberry


Todays mani monday is red themed. What a surprise! This colour is Raspberry by Barry M. This is a plum toned burgundy! Which makes a change from my usual is it black or is it burgundy shades that are always on my nails!
