Haul: British Bonanza!

Hello everyone!!

In my previous post, I mentioned I was in a hurry to use some British polishes that my friend Dina of Secretary's Nail Art recently sent me. A while back Dina mentioned to me that she was going on a trip, and asked if there were any polishes I was interested in, and of course there were a ton of them! She was a champ and found almost every one of the polishes I had on my list, even though it took her a ton of visits to a ton of places. A few days ago, my beloved package of British polishes arrived, and I was like a kid in a candy shop opening them and picking which one I wanted to use first!

I couldn't resist sharing on the blog because there are so many beauties...And, now Ninja Polish is starting to carry a lot of the Barry Ms, so if you see something you like, you can probably find it there:

Overall picture of my British polish haul: Top row, Top Shop; Middle row, Barry M; Bottom row, Models Own, Max Factor, Barry M Magnetics 

Models Own Golden Green, Max Factor Fantasy Fire (x2 cause she rocks!), Barry M Magnetic Burgundy and Magnetic Dark Silver

Barry M: Silvery Lilac, Lilac Foil, Silver Foil, Gold Foil

Barry M: Vivid Purple, Croc Effect Black, Denim, Black Glitter, Chameleon Effect Blue

Top Shop: Hypperreal, Hidden Treasure, Phenomena, Eclipse, Cosmic Karma, and Hypnotic

I can't wait to try all of these out over the next few days/weeks. If there are any in particular you'd like to see, let me know!

Thanks for looking,



  1. I cant wait to see "Hypnotic", and "Hidden Treasure", they where super hard to find, and I snatched the last ones. So they got to be made of WIN!

  2. I walk past a Top Shop every day, but never go in; that will have to change! I love the Max Factor, I rarely look as they're on the pricy side but those minis might tempt me.
    I use Barry M a lot, and have most of the ones you have. The Gold and Silver foil are the best stampers, the lilac foil stamps well but is more delicate. I use the magnetic silver grey for stamping too; you have to be quick but is a great alternative to black. The other colours are gorgeous too. Hope you have fun experimenting!

    1. I'm really happy with the look of the Top Shops, I have to try one of those next, but I can't imagine they won't be great. They looked pretty when I saw them on the internet, but you never know, so I'm glad they're so stunning in person, too. And thanks for the tip about stamping with the magnetics! I'm going to try that. :)


Make my day--leave me a comment!
