My Addiction

I realised I had a problem with nail varnish a little while ago. Today I realised it was a serious addiction as I made a special trip to search for cheap versions of the new Chanel Khaki range. I couldn't find a suitable copy but I still managed to buy two new nail polishes. How did this happen? My habit is quite clearly out of control and for this I blame Barry M.

Lined up like a little army.

Models Own is a relatively new brand to me but I am already getting obsessed. They are currently two for £8 in Boots and they have a really cute pastel reange that is quite unique. Yes I am still fashioning pastels despite winter coming and the need for a stronger, fuller nail palette. I'm not ready to give up on our pathetic summer just yet.

Beauty UK is another brand of polish that I am unfamiliar with but I really liked this lilac shade which I hadn't seen anywhere else before. Argh, a new collection to keep my eye on!

This is why I blame Barry M!

These three colours here show why Barry M are so good. They have taken three sell-out Chanel colours (from left: Jade, Nouvelle Vague, and Particuliere) and copied them pretty much exactly. Their own version of Particuliere, Mushroom, took me ages to find as it had sold out as well which is ridiculous as that isn't even a limited edition Chanel colour. 

They are pretty much the exact same colour. On my nails, the Barry M is on the left and as you can see they come out pretty identical. Why I have both when they are exactly the same is a question I shouldn't ask myself! I also stockpiled so have two of the Barry M ones. Oops!

My addiction is far from being cured. Especially with new Chanel shades being created to tempt me. I'm loving the new A/W shade that go live on friday. Unfortunately I will be in Portugal so I shall have to get a friend to kindly purchase them for me or I shall have to wait for Barry M to weave their £2.95 magic. Incidentally I'm not going to waste my time with Khaki Brun. It looks exactly like Particuliere and as I've already mentioned, I have enough of this to last for a long time. The other two are a different story.
