I'm on a self imposed no buy (again!) until the start of May now. This doesn't stop me from looking and lusting though!
First up, I really love the shade of Barry M's new Lychee jelly polish. It's a gorgeous hi-shine light nude colour which to me looks similar to OPI's Don't Pretzel My Buttons - if I wasn't on a no buy and I had my German mini set up at uni with me I'd get it and do a comparison shot but unfortunately it's a no go! It doesn't seem like anyone else has done this yet so I'd be interested in seeing the comparison pics if you do have them both. Here is is in the bottle;
Secondly, whilst these are a little bit 'last year' now having been released in November 2012, OPI's Cirque Du Soleil collection didn't immediately wow me but when I saw It's a Trap-Eze I knew I wanted it. This is a gorgeous milky white multi coloured glitter that just screams circus to me and is a unique addition to any collection. Want. Now. It doesn't look much in the bottle but obviously I can't be stealing swatch pictures from any lovely blogger people so you'll have to do your own googling for that.

Being in a long distance relationship due to uni means that once again I won't see my boyfriend on Valentines day - not that we're massively fussed about celebrating it anyway. This doesn't mean I can't do nice love themed nails though!
Base - H + M 'Mon Amie' with H + M 'Snow White' layered over the top
Hearts - Barry M 'Red Glitter'
The hearts were really simple to do with a dotting tool - pick a medium sized ball, dip it in the red polish, and then dot a circle onto your nail. Dot another circle just opposite it and with any luck it'll form into a natural heart shape. If it doesn't or you want a more sharpened heart then get a smaller ball and make a point.
