As Sweet As Blood Red Jam


Red Glitter 150
I saw this nail polish floating about around Christmas time, but every Boots store I checked into were out of stock. Until yesterday, and so I used my points to my advantage (see what I did there?) and updated my collection. I am a huge fan of Barry M nail polishes, they can take some time to dry, but not being the kinda girl who paints her nails 10 minutes before leaving the house this isn't really an issue for me. I usually have to apply 3 coats of polish to get the opaque look I'm after, I like my nails to be super opaque, but for this I used 4 just to ensure that not a patch was left unglittered. It dried in absolutely no time at all which was great; it feels quite strange to the touch as it is not your usual smooth texture but slightly gritty due to the glitter. I wish I had had it for the festive period but we all need something to brighten up these ridiculously chilly times, non? New favourite colour.
