Nail Polish Colour Crush- Purple(:


I’m starting to really love writing these posts! It’s nice to just talk about one amazing nail polish, rather than doing a post with five different items in it:)

I thought that for nail polish colour crush no#3, I tell you about one of the P.I.A polishes I have. You might remember from a post I did about a month ago where I talked about these, kind of briefly, but promised a more detailed review. Well, this is it:D Kind of. OK, so it’s not that detailed. But there are a few pretty pictures!! You can have a look at said post here.

This is P.I.A polish in 12. No, it doesn’t have a name. Yes, that does drive me mad. But I’ll get over it, because look at this colour! It’s a gorgeous mix of pink and purple, the colour is really orchid-y. I’ve never really looked for this colour in a nail polish before, but I know Revlon and Essie have a pretty nice one, but they’re both a lot more expensive than this one.

The pictures above are all one coat, which is AMAZING. The only slightly strange think I found with this shade, is that it dries to an almost matte finish. It kind of looks cloudy, if you know what I mean…? It probably just needs a top coat, but I think I’ll just stick to using it without, I kinda like it:) Also, it takes forever to chip, which is great:) In these photos, I’ve already been wearing it for three days. THREE DAYS, WITH ONE COAT, AND NO TOP COAT, FOR *approximately* £1.67?

In case you are now wondering, I got three of these nail polishes for £5. Smiley face:D

I just spent about ten minutes digging round the internet, but it turns out P.I.A don’t have a website ugh but I have found them on Amazon, where they’re about a £5 each. MINE WERE 3 FOR £5, AMAZON, BUT WHATEVER.

They are definitely worth the price. Seriously. LOVE THEM, and will be getting more.

Let me know what you think of this purple, or if you have a better one I should try, or a different colour all together:D I love suggestions and comments and stuff, they give me an excuse to try more things:)

Nail Polish Colour Crush- Turquoise:)


Turquoise has been my favourite colour for about six years now, but until recently I haven’t been able to find a nail polish that was even close to being pretty and bright enough. Well, this is it. IT’S BEAUTIFUL. I’ve become a bit obsessed with the Barry M Gelly Hi Shine recently (more about that coming soon) and I just wanted to talk about my absolute favourite S/S colour;

Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Greenberry.

Let’s talk about that shade name shall we?:) For most of the rest of this collection, the fruity themed names actually resemble the colour of the polish, but Greenberry? What’s a greenberry? Is that a specific, unimaginatively named fruit that has somehow escaped me, or are they just talking about any berry that’s green? Like a gooseberry? But then, I hate to ask the obvious question, why is the polish turquoise, not green? I mean, don’t get me wrong, I’m glad they made the shade because it is beautiful. But it’s not green. I guess there’s no such thing as a turquoise fruit to fit the theme and they wanted a turquoise polish, because it does fit into the collection nicely. AH, I gotta stop talking about the whole collection, I’m doing a post about that soon.

Look how gorgeous and vibrant the colour is! Honestly, this is two coats, it’s so shiny, a stunning colour. And it survived me washing my hair three times, which doesn’t sound like a big achievement, but normally my nail polish chips when I do that.

My little sister loved it aswell;) Don’t we look cute? 

This colour is literally stunning, I love it and the quality of the polish is brilliant. Highly recommend. Highly. But like I said, I’ll be talking about them soon, so watch out for it:)

You can read about the last Nail Polish Colour Crush here, which is about this amazing coral nail polish I’ve been loving:) That was ages ago, so I’m going to try and do a few more colour crush nail polish posts.

And just so you know, I have absolutely no idea what’s been going on with the font in this post. 

Nail Polish Colour Crush- Coral(:


I probably shouldn’t be starting another series of posts when I’m already halfway through *The Shampoo Review* and *The Lush Post*’s, but my new nail varnish is too beautiful not to be celebrated in some fancy new series kind of a way.

Revlon Nail Enamel in One Perfect Coral. It truly is. Perfect. Sorry about the awful pictures, I had to use my webcam to take them-.-

If you read my last post (ironically, it was the second in The Shampoo Review series) you’ll know that I’m currently on holiday in Turkey, which is pretty cool and I’ll probably get round to doing some sort of post about that soon. When we got to the airport the day before yesterday to get here, I remembered I’d oh-so-conveniently forgotten my nail varnish, despite my obsessive packing, but luckily there was oh-so-conveniently a Boots at the airport. I honestly do pack like a madman normally. I was actually lying in bed the night before we left thinking ‘don’t forget nail varnish, don’t forget nail varnish’ in the hope that that would somehow leave a neon post –it –note in my brain, but no such luck. I forgot my nail varnish. I was planning on buying another Maybelline Colour Show nail varnish in Boots because I looove the one I’ve got (*which you can read a little bit about here*, if you’re interested) and they’re really cheap, but they didn’t have a great selection of colours in. There was one peachy coloured one that was kinda cute, but I came to the conclusion that that wouldn’t look good until I had a bit of a tan (ha).Then I looked at the Barry M Hi Shine Gelly ones, because you all know how much I reallyreally want one of those, it was included in my *Spring Wishlist*, which did have some beautiful colours in, and I was just about to buy one of those when I noticed the Revlon stand. I’ve never tried the Revlon nail varnishes before, and I have no idea why, because the packaging is really nice and expensive-looking (even though the nail varnish £6.49), the selection of colours is pretty good and the bottle is huuuuuuuge- 14.7 ml, to be precise, which is only 0.3 ml less than a bottle of OPI, and about £5 cheaper. So anyway:-), I noticed this gorgeous coral colour, and I just absolutely had to have it.

One Perfect Coral-

Honestly, this is one of the most beautiful colours I’ve ever had on my nails. Ever. And I lovelovelovelove nail varnish. It’s like a neon pink-orange colour that would be beautiful in a ombre-sunset-nail-art design with yellow and purple. It’s a really solid colour, I’m wearing one coat of it on my nails and it’s absolutely opaque. It’s really easy to apply too, you know that lovely moment when your new nail varnish is the perfect consistency? That’s what this is like. The formula’s also really glossy, I’m not wearing a top or base coat because I don’t have either with me and it’s still really shiny:-). I know I should be wearing a base coat, I feel like this colour is probably going to stain my nails,  but ohwell:-), totally worth it. It hasn’t chipped so far, which is great, but at the very edges it is starting the look a bit thinner, which isn’t the best sign. Hopefully it will last!

I really want to add a few more of these polishes to my collection- let me know if you have any Revlon Nail Enamels in an amazing colour, and as always, leave me a comment with questions or recommendations:-). If any of you have a nice cornflower blue colour, let me know, because that’s what I’m currently looking for. I’d also love to know what your favourite coral nail varnish is:-)

Just to let you know: This series of posts is going to be my favourite nail varnish in every colour. I think I’m even going to have to do light/ dark/ metallic of every colour as well, so leave me a comment if there are any particular colours you want me to hunt down and talk about:-) Hopefully it’ll be a good series! I’m looking forward to it:-)
