Colourful Matte NOTD

Hullo lovely Ladies!

The most embarrassing thing happened to me this morning, I went to superdrug to pick up Beauty UK's Matte Top Coat that I have been really wanting and of course I couldn't keep myself away from the Barry M stand. Now maybe it's because of this lush sunny day but I really wanted some bright juicy colours and I picked up Block Orange which I havn't heard a lot about. 

Then some how it dropped from my hands and smashed all over the floor in Superdrug! Can you imagine it? I was mortified, It wasn't like it was a clear polish or even something subdued but a bright orange, It went everywhere all over the floor and on my foot!  A lovely lady from the front of the shop came to help me and started cleaning it up, I must have said sorry about eight times before I left. 

What really made me angry though was a bunch of fifteen year old girls where getting served in front of my and all they where going on about was "Ohh My god! Can you smell nail polish?" and then came that irritating giggling. I wish now that I had mentioned something snarky about the four shades too dark foundation the were wearing but that's life I guess, I only manage to think of something to say to someone once the situations is over :-( 

Right embarrassing story over! On to the good stuff :-) 

So I actually did get the Block Orange and also this Yellow Ice Cream.

A lot of people seem to have a problem with this colour, I guess it is harder to work with than most Barry M polishes but it's so lovely that I will put of with having to put four coats on instead of just two. 

I took a picture for you to see what the yellow looks like with and without a matte top coat.

I think it looks amazing as a matte polish :-) 

I also used Barry M's Blueberry Ice Cream Nail Paint and dotted with your normal everyday cotton swab.

I really like how it turned out, colourful and fun! 

Hope your all having a great day! 

Had any embarrassing moments lately? :-) 

Thanks, Linzi xx


  1. Awh that is so annoying. Girls are seriously such bitches when they go around in their packs. Ignore them!

    I love the colours! Even the cotton bud looks great with coloured ends :P I wish they came in pretty colours like that.

    1. I'm just glad I was never like that when I was their age, they must be very insecure.

      haha I know! Someone could make millions by doing that...I'd buy them :-0

      Thanks hun!

  2. this looks very cute!
