Yesterday I missed my train home from work l. I had to wait ages for the next one so instead of sitting around on a platform, I decided to take a wander over to the nearest shopping centre and have a look around.
I popped into the Tesco Direct to get a new notebook and pen (living life on the edge) and thought I’d have a quick look at their beauty section.
Uh oh. They had two baskets full of reduced make up and there were girls scrambling through them trying to find some good bits. My instinct took over and before I knew it I was digging out cheap nail polish (and a few other bits) and shoving it in my basket.
I ended up leaving with eleven nail polishes, one eyeshadow and a Lipgloss (plus the notepad and pen) and only spent £25! The polishes I got ranged from £2.95 down to a measly 57p!
The colour I have to show you today is one of those new polishes.
Barbara Daly Wicked – indoor with flash
Barbara Daly is a brand that is exclusive to Tesco stores. This is the first time I have bought Barbara Daly polishes, and I found this one to be really lovely.
Wicked is a dark purpley redy browny colour with a subtle shimmer to it. In the shade or indoors this colour really seems to be a warm dark brown colour, but in bright lights or sunlight it shifts to a purple or red shimmer which is really unusual. I can’t say that I have seen anything like this before.
I don’t know if I was having an unusually good day or something, but the application last night was the nicest I have ever had it. The brushes glided (is that even a word) across my nail like a dream and at the end I didn’t need to do ANY cleaning up of the skin around my nails.
In the photos you can see only one coat, but I actually wish that I had done another coat as it’s not completely opaque in some areas… Nevermind.
I think ten of the eleven polishes I got were Barbara Daly’s so stay tuned for reviews of the rest of them!
