NOTD - Barry M Indigo & Maybelline Flash Cosmic!

Hiyaaaaa sweetpeas! Hope you all are having a lovely weekend?

Tis been a productive one down this end with moi finally taking on the task I've been holding off for weeks...organising my polishes. It was a wee bit daunting...& I needed to lie down afterwards...but I did it! No longer am I finding polishes by the tv, under the bed, in teacups, within the kitchen cupboards (yup, that's right) but all are happily tucked away in some fab & cheap drawer storage I picked up in Asda's no less. I would of course love to own a helmer for all my polish storage needs but I just lack the space so these suit me fine, I may even do a post sometime?

Moving on I wanted to share with you lovelies one of the nail polish combos I am loving at the moment featuring an old favourite of mine plus a super fabulous funky topcoat that is simply stunning! The trusty favourite in question is my good ol' Barry M Indigo & the special little topcoat is Maybelline's Flash Cosmic.


Starting with that lush Barry M Indigo, this was one of the first Barry M shades I bought into my collection & my love for it is still going strong! A beautiful, vibrant pick me up purple blue, its one of those fab shades that just lifts up my mood so much, I adore it! This was a rush mani jobby so only one coat was applied however as you can probably tell it definitely is a two coater for a fully opaque finish.


Now to this little gem of a topcoat, I don't own many Maybelline polishes but I'm loving a lot of their recent additions especially the Polka Dots range which I recently blogged about. Flash Cosmic has actually been around for donkey's yet only now have I been giving it the loving it truly deserves. A gorgeous iridescent pearly blue glitter suspended in a cloudy base which dries clear, it gives the prettiest opal like sparkle to the nails, a really fab way to jazz up any polish colour & I'm loving it with the Barry M Indigo! I've recently worn it over a pale lilac too & the finish was so beautiful!


I anticipate this little topcoat will be getting a lot of usage, can't wait to try it over a spectrum of different colours!


Thanks as always for reading dolls. Have you tried Flash Cosmic? Do you have any favourite nail polish combos at the moment?

Lotsa love to ya!
