Finally, back with a new post!
So, a few weeks ago, I was attempting to teach my makeup-challenged friend a way around her makeup bag. However, TO MY SHOCK HORROR, she had one brush… One. How has she survived up until this point, I hear you cry. I know, I know. So I told her that I was able to find her some useful tools at a bargain price from E.L.F. and she wasn’t disappointed! (Not going to lie, I bought brushes for myself too, of course!)
It’s been a couple of weeks since we posted, and what better way to make a comeback than with a post that comprises mainly of photos?! There is no better way, I know. I know Halloween has come and gone and everyone’s probably so over the inundation of creatively wacky makeup looks that have been on offer all over the internet, but since Halloween is the only time I really get in any way creative with my makeup, I thought it would be nice to share what I did with y’all.

I perused the aisles of my local pharmacy last week with a friend, stopping at the Barry M stand, as per usual. This range of polishes caught my eye. Their website describes them as: “Hi shine Gel effect Nail Paint [that] provides an extra glossy finish”. I mean, who can turn that down?
Except. Except, well, it’s awful. I invested in the colour above, Key Lime, as I can’t turn down a bright varnish. My friend told me, she told me that they were awful but would I listen? Hardly.
The varnish goes on lumpy, with bubbles forming in the varnish. It takes about eighteen hours to dry (that’s an exaggeration but you know what I mean) and when it does finally manage to dry, it’s too thick and scrapes off easily.
Yeah, it’s cheap enough, so you shouldn’t expect much. But, for me, it’s a pity since I have other varnishes in this brand and they’re pretty good, in fairness. Really disappointed this time around.
Verdict: Please, for the love of god, don’t buy this.
