Above & Below: Boots Lip Gloss in Barley Sugar and Boots Summer Palette. I love the embossed pattern on the colors.
Below: You know I'm going to use the Mint nail polish and the mint colored eye shadow on the same day!
The wonderful Helen, of Helen & Sheenie's Nice Things blog, sent me these lovely polishes and make up in a little swap we arranged. I have wanted to try Barry M for quite some time and Helen has now made me a very happy person! The Boots No. 7 palette is so beautiful, I hate to ruin the embossing on the colors by using it. The lip gloss (also by Boots) is a perfect shade for me. And the chocolate...yummy! Helen is one of those people that if a rather large ocean didn't separate us, I think we'd be hanging out shopping for make up, followed by a few drinks in the tavern on a regular basis. If you aren't familiar with her blog, check it out. I guarantee you'll not only be treated to beautiful nails wearing a variety of different polishes, along with other beauty-related posts, but her writing will put a smile on your face every time (and quite possibly cause you to snort your drink out, so I warn you, don't take a sip of something and then start reading about her antics!). Thanks so much Helen for such a fun package and the much sought after Barry M's.
On another note, it looks like Barielle's UK site finally has the Shades nail polish available for purchase for those of you on that side of the globe. Click here to check it out.
