2011 – It’s the year of the vampire, right? True Blood has been renewed for a fourth season, Vampire Diaries has won a bunch of awards, and every bookshop you enter has more or less replaced its young adult section with a miniature Vampires R US.
2011 is also the year that the final film instalment of the Twilight Saga hits our cinema screens. Edward and Bella in steamy clinches on a remote tropical island! Swoon! (Well, the Edward bit at least.)
Breaking Dawn (Part 1) is due to be released on November 18, and I guess I’m already getting into the vampire spirit! Or, to be truthful, I found this blood red nail polish in a Superdrug on Charing Cross Road when I was in London, and I thought it was really pretty. So I bought it. Voila, Barry M Nail Paint 1A 033 Red Wine!
It was so frustrating taking pictures of this nail polish – the camera just couldn’t pick up its colour correctly. It’s actually more of a deep, blood red. And it’s a jelly polish! I freaking LOVE jellies. It applied like a dream – but you have to be careful to do even coats, otherwise the layers are very obvious. Beautiful thin formula, lovely brush, full thumbs up for this polish. Barry M are always a winner for me.
Anyway, here are a couple of pictures that are closer in colour to the actual polish, to give you a better idea –
I hope you get the idea, I’m so annoyed my camera wouldn’t pick up the correct colour. It’s very close in colour to actual blood with two coats, and more of a strawberry red with just one coat. Delightful! Needless to say, I love it. It’s a gorgeous dash of colour in this gloomy month of January. Did you know, today (January 17th) is “scientifically speaking” the most depressing day of the year? I have just the thing for that – a shiny new manicure, and this picture below.
Happy Blue Monday!
