Review: Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint ~ Barry M

Nails nails nails....
... I just love painting them! So my newest edition to my nails varnish collection is the Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint by Barry M. I picked the shade Lychee. As you may know this is one of Barry Ms fast growing effects range.
I lurvvveeee my nude colours you see so this shade stood out to me straight away. The first thing i noticed about this nail varnish was when i was using it the smell is just lovely. You may be thinking what an odd thing to first recognise but its actually really nice not over powering like some.
Next i did find that it does not seem to go on completely even however it does seem to even out whilst your doing your other nails. It does say one coat needed however i prefer the effect of two. however i have noticed the more coats you apply the more likely it is to chip so bare this in mind :) It does dry nice and quickly though always a bonus!
I love this effect that it constantly looks wet and with extra shine. I think it makes your nails look like you have just had them all done especially if you have nicely grown nails. Someone even asked me if mine were fake or real?! (I wasn't too sure if i should take this as a compliment or not lol.)

The rest of the colour range i find is rather random because there are a lot of bright colours but also some pastels. I am really happy with the product.
What are your thoughts?

LOVE IT: Graze ~ Nibble Box

Hello :)

My mam kept getting this healthy nibbles through the post when i was back home visiting. 'Its only £3.89' she kept saying! She highly recommended them to me and gave me a code so that i got my first and fifth box for free. So the word 'Free' Instantly got me interested. I used the code and signed up for the free box and if you are unhappy with the product you simply cancel it after you receive the box and you have no commitment which i think is really good.

If you go onto the website Graze Box you just sign up and you get the option to choose between three main boxes;

~Nibble Box (which i get) ~ This is maximum variety and you get to choose from over 100 nibbles.

~Eat Well Box ~ Which is a more healthy box however you will receive a little treat from time to time.

~Energy Box ~ This is the strictest box in which you do not receive any treats only the most healthy selection of the nibbles.

You then choose the type of box you are interested in and then you get to rate all the nibbles they may send you. These are the ratings;

'Bin' if you know you do not like something.

~ 'Try' if you want them to send you something and you are not sure.

~ 'Like' if you know you like it.

~ 'Love' if you definitely like it.

~'Send soon' if you cant wait for the random selection to come around for your favourite things.

Here is what i received in my first box :)

As you can see above each box you receive 4 different nibbles. The nibbles i received were;

~ The British Barbecuerosemary crostini, mini basil bread sticks, fiery seeds and smoked almonds

Review:I really enjoyed these they were packed full of flavour and i even dipped the crostinis and bread sticks into my tomato soup hehe that was really nice as well :) I have rated these LOVE.

~ Lightly Toasted Pistachios ~ roasted pistachios with a touch of salt.

Review: I love pistachios so i did love these and the salt just gives them an extra tastiness mmmmmm. I have rated these LIKE.

~ Honeycomb Flapjack ~ rustic rolled oat flapjack with honeycomb and milk chocolate.

Review: This nibble is classed as a treat :) and it is a yummy one at that! Chocolate and honeycomb in the same little treat! Delightful! I rated this as LOVE. 

~ Garden of Englandmini strawberries, blackcurrants and apple.

Review: I loved the mini strawberries because they were lovely and sweet. The blackcurrants however were pretty tart a little too tart for me i am afraid. Then on to the apple i was not really a fan at all because it was very chewy and bizarre. I rated this BIN.

You also get codes given with your boxes to enable friends to get their first box free and then if they sign up using your code you then get the choice for £1 off your next box or to give to charity. :)

If anyone would like any codes just ask :)

Give it a try i recommend it! What do you think of your boxes?
