Barry M Raspberry & Fuchsia

As much as I used to love to watch Little House on the Prairie when I was younger, I could never live that way. We've been without power for days and it came back on this evening. I seriously thought I may go insane earlier this afternoon, so I once again appreciate AEP and the hardworking linemen! But I did spend the afternoon watching them climb up and down poles with their tool belts on, and it was a rather pleasant view. We've been having torrential rains with very strong winds and Thursday and Friday saw quite a bit of lightning, so it was bound to happen sooner or later. It did give me time to swatch all of my Barry M's (albeit in the dark, so excuse the lighting and messy application) which was also a plus. Helen sent me these from England and I am very pleased with them. They only needed 2 coats and applied and dried like a dream. I've got 3 more to share with you in the next couple of days. Have you ever tried Barry M? What are your thoughts on them? I love them and thanks again, Helen!

  5. I agree totally with you. Give me electricity! Isn't it amazing how quiet it is. You don't realize how much noise all your appliances and such make. Hope you didn't lost any food. How did you manage without any electricity to have meals and such? Scary weather. We've had just a couple of sunny days in a month. Torrential rains yesterday. The Barry M polishes are gorgeous! Both look very pretty on you. Your nails don't really look that short. They really look nice. Best things is that nails grow back. I hope I mentioned how pretty your new picture is. Love the new hair color, lighter streaks! Glad you have the power back on. Lots of things to catch up on I bet.

  6. Nosaby~they applied very smoothly, very impressive! Barry M is based in England, and I'm not really sure of where exactly they come from, although they do have a website.

    Brilliant Farmgirl~thank you, I'll check out your blog :)

    Kae~I like both of them, but the pink is really very pretty, not too bright.

    Kitty~yay for electricity! Which Barry M's did you get? Can't wait to see you model them :)

    Lucy~yes, almost too quiet! We had take-out food...the Chinese we got was especially good. Thank you for the hair compliment :) I'm busy doing laundry today now that the power's back.
