NOTD- The Dark Side

Remember when black nails was the in thing?
I never bought into it. My 16 year old self couldn't comprehend any respectable nail colours to be out of the spectrum of pink, with the occasional venture into the scary world of DIY French manicures.
Fast forward three years on and something changed. I, at the age of 19 went over to the dark side.

Barry M Nail Paint
Yes, my love affair with Barry M's nail polish continues.
After two coats, I was left with an inky purple. The verdict is, I love it!
*Note, this picture is with flash, right now indoors it looks slightly darker. The purple is distinctive, though.
It is also worth mentioning that Boots in Ireland are now stocking Barry M products. Long gone are the days of buying in bulk in the UK! Without going into a big rant about the ridiculous and wholly unfair Euro "exchange rate" (hello MAC!), the Barry M products appear to be reasonably priced. The nail polish is £2.99 and I paid €4.50. I can live with that.

On another note, I made a rather extreme yet expensive purchase. And yes, I am sure I am 7 or 8 years behind fashion-wise!
Yep, Ugg boots! I have had the Primark version *shudders* as well as the slightly better River Island ones. But due to my rather substantial paycheck, I felt I deserved them!
Also, I passed all six of my Uni Christmas exams! So no nasty summer repeats, plus €200 fee. That kinda balanced out the price of the boots.... hmm! They are just The Classic Short version in Chestnut (avaliable here), and I purchased them from Schuh (yay for student discount!). I swear they are the softest boots I have ever worn and so far, they are worth every penny.
What do you think?

  1. That is very dark purple,I stick to lighter colours. Yeah I was one of girls at my school that loved black nail varnish now I don't, complete opposite

  2. i <3 that colour!!! i adore UGGS =) you feet will love you =) xx

  3. @Beaufashion Yeah I think it kinda goes full circle colour-wise :P x

    @Hayley Thank you hunny I know it feels like I'm walking on a cloud :o) x x

  4. Love the nails. Nodding along here with your mini rant about the Euro lol. I've never liked Ugg's *hides from the looks* but I actually would like a pair :) xx

  5. @Ellie Don't feel bad... I never really liked them either! But I think that was just because of the cheapo Primark nasty ones..these are *different* :D xxx

  6. I can't believe you have never had Uggs before! I've went through 6 pairs haha!
    Urgh I hate the Primark ones, i'm sure they would ruin your posture eventually because girls who wear them seem to walk on the sides of their feet :/
    I think genuine Uggs are 100% worth the price, nowhere else matches the look or quality :)
    I got the same ones as you last summer and they still look great!
    Good buy girlie!

  7. @Rachael I know! Its mad I guess I just thought it was a *lot* of money for shoes... but i have worn them almost every day since I got them so that definately justifies them :o) Thank you for your comment, I have had a look at your blog too, looks great! <3
