Barry M Hi-Shine Gelly Nail Paint in Papaya


Isn't this colour gorgeous?! I resisted these Gelly polishes for a while. Having swatches them in store I wasn't impressed with their drying time even with just one coat but couple a 3 for 2 offer with the need to own every coral ever and I caved. Who could blame me? 


Minimal tip wear on my lesser used digits since Thursday (today being Tuesday) although I did have to redo my index finger yesterday. 
I'm still not impressed with the drying time or the stability once dried but some good ole Seche Vite fixed that and these have lasted fairly well! Maybe Seche has just spoiled me... Ah well I'm sure I'll live!

  1. My problem with these polishes is that they aren't really Jelly's :( super pretty colour though!

    1. I think the key here is the G. The way I take it they're not traditional Jelly formulas that look like actual Jelly. Instead they're trying to buy into the Gellish trend (long wear & high shine) whilst sticking with traditional cream colours which is their speciality. Unfortunately they don't pull off anything near the quality & stability of Gellish and we've just ended up with slightly shinier versions of existing polishes.

Ophrys Skincare

If you have been following my blogs and social media you will have seen that I am currently partnering with Therapie Clinics and trying out their range of specialist facials to try and improve my skin. Alongside the facials (my second of which is coming up in April!) I have really tried to up my game with my skin care. Rather than just slapping everything that says hydration on I am really trying to target specific areas and problems. This has not been without it's troubles as my sensitive skin tries to adjust to this higher level of care. As a result of this - and a few other internal factors - I have been experiencing a few more breakouts than normal but I have been coping with them better. It's all about the give and take. And when it comes to the 'give' I was very lucky to be approached by Ophrys Skincare to talk about their new range of low molecular hyaluronic skincare with their patented Mini-Hax particle. "Low Ma-what?" I hear you say? Well... Low

Am I Disabled?

This article has been going through my head quite a lot recently and I’m feeling a little self indulgent so bear with me. As a kid I was on the special needs list throughout school and given a classroom assistant to help with my tracheostomy care. I was considered disabled enough to warrant disability benefits right up until I turned 18 when they decided that I wasn’t mentally incapacitated enough and too independent. A panel of bureaucrats sat across the table and said “we can see you are but there’s nothing we can do.” I didn’t tick the right boxes. I’ve worked since I was old enough and supported myself as much as I could and excluding a few short absences from work I have been successful in that. Until now. Now I can’t support myself. I struggle with self care. I’ve had to give up my home and I’ve lost my independence. I’m back to getting surgery’s every 6-8 weeks. They were usually just day cases but the last few have been fairly severe with extended stays (I get to have ano
