It's Christmas Time with Barry M!

Hi Guys,

Christmas is the time of year where everything gets sparkly from your tree to your nails. I love this time of year not only for all the festivities, but also for the fact Barry M release their sparkling limited edition range of nail paints! 
Barry M know how to do nail polishes and are always right on it with their releases, I do wish these weren't limited edition as I'm obsessed with glitter. But every year Barry M teams up with Superdrug and Boots, plus this year Tesco too. To release a little something for everyone at Christmas, plus at only £3.99 each its difficult not to want to collect them all!
Boots Starlight and Moonlight
 Starlight is packed full of stars, which perfectly suits its name. The stars are silver and are a lot bigger than the rest of the glitter, which really makes them stand out. It's mixed in with a combination of gold and baby pink glitter hexagons and fine glitter. The glitter is suspended in a clear polish which makes them more suitable as a top coat. 

Moonlight is more packed with glitter compared to Starlight but again is great just as a topcoat. It also shares the fine glitter in silver and the silver stars, as well as the silver and gold hexagons. The only difference with this polish mainly is the red wiggly shaped glitter. (Very technically named there!)

Both Starlight and Moonlight can be found HERE or are free when you spend £6 on Barry M at the moment.
Superdrug Christmas Tree and Jingle Bells
Christmas Tree suits its name so well, with the dark forest green glitter suspended in the clear polish. The green glitter comes in a range of sizes from circles and hexogans to strip glitter. It also has a mixture of gold and silver stars that really stand out against the green, plus the little red wiggly strands that actually remind me of santa's hat in shape!

Jingle Bells is very similar to Christmas Tree in the size and shapes of the glitter, except that Jingle Bells is a gold based glitter rather than the green. I think both of these polishes suit their name so well and the time of year, as they're a lot more traditional.

You can grab Christmas Tree - HERE and Jingle Bells - HERE online, but also on the spend £6 and get one free deal too.

There is also a really pretty purple gem in the collection, exclusive to Tesco. Its called Twilight, so of course the fact its called that, glittery and purple I went on a hunt to find it. Turns out its a lot harder to find than I expected so I've tracked it down HERE in case you want to take a peek!
