Once Upon a Time...

Today I changed my nails (once again!). I decided to try a nail varnish that I bought back in April, on our family week away to London & Whitstable. Yes, how bad is it that I still haven't used some of the things I bought back then?! I don't know why, or how I left it so long to try this nail varnish out, but now I finally have it is a fave. I am in love!!

As the fairytales and Disney movies start...

Well, here is Barry M's take on Once Upon a Time (np210). A fairytale in a bottle!

I am wearing it over Rimmel Pompous. I was trying to chose a colour to wear it on and decided to try this combo, and it's a good one :)

The metallic strips are pinky-purple and silver hologram. Coverage and ease of application was pretty impressive, compared to other glitter-type nail varnishes. I put 2 coats of just to get a bit extra sparkle, but 1 would be plenty!

I bought this from Topshop in Oxford Street (aka MECCA) and have yet to see it in any other shops. However, you can pick this up from Barry M's website. It costs a tiny £2.99!!



  1. OMG! I really love Barry M "Once Upon a Time"; it is so fairy-like! Your nails look lovely with it! I have just purchased some nail polishes by China Glaze, if you fancy a look,
    Take care!

  2. Thank you :) I know, it is one of those that you can't help but keep admiring when you are wearing it. I love how the silver bits go all rainbow-style in the light!
    Thank you for following :) I will have a look at your blog now x
