I am obsessed with painting my nails, I have been for a few years especially as I am quite blessed to have very strong nails which I can grow to a considerable length without breaking! Today I would say I have around 53 nail polishes from the brands:
- Barry M
- China Glaze
- New Look
- Models Own
- Creative Colours
- Kelly Brooks Collection
- Models Own
Here is a picture of how I store all my nail polishes: (It is just an old box without the lid on haha)
I have 11 polishes from Barry M, I think this is one of my favourite brands as they are such high quality and a very popular company. I have three base colours including:
‘Matte Nail Paint’- I use this whenever I want a matte manicure rather than the obvious glossy taco (if you get that joke, please comment down below it will make me smile so much).
‘Iron Mani’- this is my FAVOURITE base coat ever. A few months ago my nails were really damaged and this base coat saved them!!!
‘Mani Mask’- this basically is a base for colours as it fills your nails ridges and bumps so you have a nice smooth manicure.
The rest of the polishes I have are all colours from different ranges, I have:
Coconut Infusion- ‘Scuba’, ‘Skinny Dip’, ‘Tiki Hut’.
Gelly Hi-Shine- ‘Papaya’, ‘Blueberry’.
Textured Nail Effect- ‘Station Road’.
Matte Nail Paint- ‘Crush’.
I got these 6 nail polishes in a Christmas collection (one of which is a top coat which I have misplaced after using it this morning), which as you can see is a pink colour selection which really caught my eyes in the Boxing Day sales last year. I don’t know whether you can still buy this set but it’s really really pretty and I would purchase it if you could. They don’t have individual shade names.
China Glaze is such a good brand, seriously! They give you such large bottles of polish! The four colours I have are:
Individuals- ‘Aquadelic’, ‘Mingle with Kringle’, ‘So blue without you’, ‘Bells will be blinging’.
Really gorgeous collections and individual shades, they are such amazing quality!!
I have 6 colours from this brand, I always find myself wandering over to Rimmel counter and scanning the range of nail stuff they have!!
Rita Ora- 878 ‘Roll in the grass’, 860 ‘Bestival Blue’.
London Range- 500 ‘Disco Ball’, 239 ‘Your Majesty’.
60 seconds super shine- 500 ‘Caramel Cupcake’.
Lasting Finish- 193 ‘Black Cherries’.
I think Essie is one of the most well-known nail companies out there, and I actually don’t have many of their polishes!! But the ones I do are very good quality, but they are a bit more on the expensive side..
Gel Range- ‘Dress call’, ‘Zip me up’ and the Top Coat.
Individuals- ‘Off Tropic’, ‘In Stitches’.
New look is actually more of a new one for nail polishes and their range of them is actually massive!! I only have four of these but I am interested in getting some more:
Individuals- ‘Terracota’, ‘Petrol’, ‘Khaki’, ‘Show Business’.
I only have two of the Chrome Collection polishes from Models Own because it is a really different range to me.
Chromes- ‘Chrome Mauve’, ‘Chrome Rose’.
Another clothes company that branched out into beauty bits is NEXT and I bought the Duochrome (Pearl Effect) collection just to try it out rather than getting some random shades.
Duochromes- ‘Mermaid’, ‘Molten Lava’, ‘Oil Slick’, ‘Jet Black’.
Kelly Brook Collection
I actually cannot remember where I got these polishes from, whoops!! They are three matte neon colours, they don’t have shade names or anything but I still really like them and use them regularly.
I received this massive set for a present and have actually gone through half of the colours already and only have 5 left. I have to mention the black shade it so creamy and pigmented that it only needs one coat!!
I have never really gotten into the Maybelline nail stuff and I only have two, I really like the colours that I have and haven’t seen enough hype over any of the newer ones to get some more.
Super Stay 7 Days- ‘ForeverMore green’, ‘Orchidée’.
I am really intrigued by the Topshop nails range and REALLY want some more, because I love the two colours I have and they are really decent quality.
Individuals- ‘Buff’, ‘Awol’, and the Gel Effect Topshop.
My top favourites are these ones:
New look: Petrol
Essie: In Stitches
Models own: Chrome Rose
I use these ones the most regularly use and completely adore them!!

Lots of love,
