Nails of the Month - Nails Inc, No7, Barry M & Models Own

I've got this thing about doing Nail of the Day posts; I kind of feel like i'm cheating when I do them because you just put up a photo of your nails and write a bit about them and that's it. I don't feel like they make the most interesting posts so I figured i'd take photos of my nails for a few weeks and then stick them all in one post, I hope you don't mind!

I set myself a little challenge a few months ago and that was to wear every single nail polish I own at least once as some of them are so unloved! I'm hoping to do one of these posts every couple of months as a sort of photo diary of my progress but also a way of me seeing what each polish I looks like on.

It feels good to be doing a bit of beauty blogging after a few months off; I haven't bought many new products recently as i've been trying to use things up (it feels like project 1000 pan!) but i'm hoping to pick up a few new things soon so fingers crossed there will be more beauty related posts coming your way!

I just want to mention that Fenech Soler have released their new single Stop and Stare this week and I think everyone should download it as it's an amazing song! The reason i'm mentioning it is because proceeds from the single will be going to the Teenage Cancer Trust as Ben from the band is currently undergoing treatment for Testicular Cancer. So not only will you have a fab song on your iPod, you'll also be donating money to a really worthwhile cause. I've been loving Fenech Soler's music for a while now and I have so much respect for them for doing this as there are a lot of bands that would just keep all the money from their single to themselves.

I hope you're all enjoying the sunny weather! 


  1. love the no7 royal blue colour!
    i think i'll have to wait until the next batch of £5 off vouchers come out though as i don't fancy parting with £7 for a polish lol

  2. I've only just noticed your header, I usually read everyone's blogs on google reader so don't see any changes made to layouts. I love it! So simple but it looks great :) I'm trying to use each polish once as well, so far it's going well :) xxx

  3. I like how you've displayed the photos :) I need to do this, I have far too many that I never wear! x

  4. When I worked in River Island it had the same CD on for ages, this is one and when I hear it cringe a little inside. It is a good song though. xxx

  5. mint choc chip is a winner for me x

  6. the first <3
    if u want follow me and write comment ;*

  7. I love this, so entertaining! I really like seeing how the colours turn out, sometimes there nothing like the colour shown in the bottle.

    I was planning to do this with my nails, because I wanted to see how often I changed my colour, if im bored at work i'll change to whatever colours in my draw etc.

    No7 wins for me, elegance

  8. Challenging yourself to wear all your nail polishes is such a good idea, I always seem to end up using the same 2 or 3 all the time! I think my favourite is the last one with the sparkly tips, lovely!

  9. I love that Barry M purple on you! It's lovely - I love Barry M - they have such a good colour range!

  10. violetta looks stunning! xo

  11. this is a really good idea, putting all of your NOTD into one post :) and the colours are gorgeous!
