Green, Glamorous and Glittery from a Gorgeous Girl Named Georgie


My fascination with green nail polishes continues. Here is my first ever nail polish from Barry M, Mint Green No. 304 (I'm so behind, I know!), which they say is a dupe for Chanel’s Jade. Personally, this is almost how I would imagine it to be if a celadon vase went insanely neon. Honestly, this colour looks neon-ish in low lighting!

I’m chuffed! Christmas came early this year thanks to dear Georgie of Dreams That Glitter. She had a giveaway recently and yours truly was lucky enough to be picked! Her goodies arrived a few days ago and imagine my surprise when I emptied the envelope.....


I was so impressed with the effort that she put into individually wrapping the three items, complete with organza pouches plus a cute little card urging us all to never give up on the quest for the perfect hairstyle. It was really sweet of you, Georgie! As eager as I was to see the prizes, I was actually quite reluctant to undo the pretty wrappings. When I did finally open them, these were the green, glamorous and glittery goodies inside:

Barry M Nail Paint – Mint Green No. 304
Eylure Girls Aloud Lashes – Cheryl
Collection 2000 Glam Crystals Dazzling Gel Liner – Rock Chick No. 7

Thank you, Georgie! I will certainly have tons of fun with them. And my early Happy Christmas wishes to all!

I've turned my nose up at green polish since the buzz started at the end of summer. I made all sorts of comments about fungal infections, but I'm starting to see the appeal. That colour is amazing. I'm going to start eating my words now, where's that ketchup?

Ha ha! I used to have similar sentiments too about green nail colours but lately, I've done a 180 degree turn. Keep an open mind, I tell myself. :D

Congratulations, lovely girl! What great presents! I would have been reluctant to unwrap them too! Gifts wrapped with care are always beautiful :) That Barry M Mint green looks made for your nails ( I must admit this is a green polish I have been lemming, that's surprising but it looks striking in photos ). Well done on your win, couldn't have been won by a nicer person! Merry Christmas xx

@gildedangel
Thanks! The wrapping was great and so were the contents! :)

@patukiii
I think you should get a pair of these Girls Aloud ones! There are quite a number of styles to choose from, aren't there?

@Cynthia
I've just had a look at your post and yes, it's so funny that we've both featured the same shade on the same day! Great minds think alike, eh? :D

@Mama Jen
Yeah, those lashes are the bomb! :D

@Georgie
Thank you, Georgie. You were the one who made this post possible! :)

@Danielle
Aww, thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I'm so heartened by your kind words.

I must admit that I'm quite surprised you haven't got this shade yet! You really should add this to your collection. You've used the right word there - it's a striking colour! :D

Miss K. You
Thank you! It's certainly a fun colour for the holiday season!

Congratulations on winning! :)

I never had a thing for nail polish. I just apply a buffer to make it shiny or probably apply a colorless coat. I play the guitar and all so I tend to crack my nails (ugh).

witoxicity said...

@M :)
Thank you, my dear! Oh, it's so cool that you can play the guitar! :)
