Speedy Nail Paints

One of the latest offering's from Barry M is their Speedy Nail Paints. This range has a total of nine colours which boast to dry at 'lightening speed for a perfect mani in seconds'. As a completely hopeless nail painter, these sounded fantastic. I'm the type of person that will paint her nails and always without fail manage to smudge, redo the nail, smudge again, get pissed off and end up taking them all off.

The range do quite light, pastel colors which i really like for spring/summer. I was looking for a good pink shade so i went for 'In a heartbeat' which when i look at it, i think of beaches, barbie, and sun. I have to say that i think it looks quite different in the bottle to what it actually does on my nails. I'm not sure if that's just my eyes because they look fine in the pictures, but it seems like a much brighter pink on my nails to what i imagined it to be.

In terms of application though, this product is brilliant. I applied my first layer and it dried in about a minute. I was so pleased! It also comes with a flat applicator brush which makes application a dream. This stuff is perfect if you're in a rush or if you're like me and a complete mess when it comes to doing your nails. They should rename it the 'lazy girl/smudge bandit' nail polish. It is fantastic.

At £3.99 you really can't say no to at least trying it out. Have a look at the range here -

I have been inspired recently by a few stories that I've read online and i wanted to share a little light reading for you:

Firstly, how amazing are these women? Honestly, i think if i were in their positions i wouldn't know what to do with myself. I certainly don't think i could be as strong as they are to look at the world and think 'fuck it, i'm gunna carry on doing what i do'. 

What i took away from these stories was that these are people who don't let these conditions stop them from shining. One is a model and the other is a beauty blogger, they are not defined by their disability and condition, they just are who they are. I found this incredibly inspiring, to think that we are all different, we all have issues and things that can stop us from doing what we want to do. But we shouldn't let it stop us from doing what we want. 

I suppose the point is that you shouldn't let things stand in your way and you shouldn't crumble at the obstacles. The things that you think can hold you back might actually be the things that push you to where you want to be in life. 

Thanks for reading! Let me know what you think in the comments
