You Beauty September 2016 Review and Unboxing

You Beauty September 2016 // Unboxing!

Hola!  I’m back with more beauty box unboxing – this time it’s the You Beauty September 2016 box!  This month’s theme is The Editor’s Picks.  Everything in the You Beauty September 2016 box has been hand picked by Sue Peart, Editor of You Magazine.  Apparently all the products have proved themselves to the You Beauty team, and to fellow beauty insiders.

Let’s be honest, it’s got to be better than last month’s box…!

Glossybox September 2016 Review and Unboxing beauty box

Glossybox September 2016 // Unboxing!

Hi guys!  Hope you’re all good.  I’ve had a pretty bad week healthwise this week, which is why there hasn’t been a post for a little while.  That said, I’m just going to make this an unboxing of the Glossybox September 2016.  I usually go into quite a lot of detail reviewing each product.  Sadly, if I wait until I’m well enough to do that, it’ll be ages until I post!  Hope you don’t mind!  (Also if you’re not a regular reader, here’s why I’ve been unwell).

For full details about how Glossybox subscriptions work and what they cost, check out this post.

The September theme is about breathing new life into our routine, and into our products.

Tanya Burr Duvet Day Nail Polish Review and Swatches Blue Grey Nail Varnish

Tanya Burr Duvet Day Nail Polish // Review!

Hola mi amigos!  Welcome back to the blog 🙂  If you’re a regular reader, you’ll know I love trying lots of different nail polish brands, finishes and colours.  I’m pretty much a nail polish addict!  When I set my eyes on Tanya Burr Duvet Day, I immediately knew I HAD to have it!  It’s one of the most beautiful coloured polishes I’ve ever seen.

It’s hard to describe, but the colour is sort of a gentle blue-grey.  It is muted but still so pretty.  This shade is so on-trend at the moment, but it’s also quite classic and could be worn to work.

Barry M Copper Mine Molten Metal Nail Paint Review and Swatches

Barry M Copper Mine Nail Polish // Review

Hey guys!  This isn’t so much of a nails of the day post as a review.  I’ve got pictures of the polish on my nails but obviously I haven’t done anything fancy with them!  This Barry M Copper Mine nail polish is just so stunning, I had to share it with you!

Barry M – Molten Metal Nail Paint in Copper Mine



Barry M Molten Metal Nail Paint Range

The Barry M Copper Mine nail polish is part of their fairly new Molten Metal range.  You can also get bronze, silver and gold.  

Barry M say: “Molten Metals give your nails show-stopping style and an instant luxe look. Each of the four chrome effect shades have a mirror-shine foil finish that will glisten for days. Metallic nails are big news for 2016, try one coat for a sheer finish or build up for a stronger look”.  I personally wouldn’t use it sheer, as it just looks like you haven’t finished your nails properly!  But each to their own.

Each nail polish costs £3.99, which is a great price.  Barry M are a fairly budget brand, but they are actually really good quality.  They really know how to do nail polish well!
