Things I wish I hadn't purchased #1

As a beauty fanatic I buy lots of products, more than I probably should and well, there comes to a point when you realise that actually, I didn't need this, do I even really like it?

Well, that is where the thought behind this post comes from. I have a few things lying around in my make-up box/ nail varnish bag/ bathroom that to be honest do not float my boat. 

Today I'm showing you two nail varnishes which I never use, and when I look back I wonder why I even got them in the first place. I'd like to state that the products I feature in posts like this and future ones are products that I do not personally like, some of you out there will indeed like these so I hope I don't offend anybody; we're all different after all.


Firstly here you can see one of the Hot Looks nail polishes from Collection 2000, now just Collection. The shade is 'Look At Me' and I these cost £1.99. I generally do like these polishes; they're cheap and cheerful and do the job. They don't last very long but they're great if you change your polish quite frequently. This shade however in my opinion is just wrong, it does nothing for me at all, I still to this day do not know why I got it...I've never worn it until today when I put it on to show you in a picture.

The second polish is by Barry M who once again I really like. These polishes cost £2.99, with their being a huge variety of colours to choose from. Once again, they do not have the best staying power in my opinion but they do the job relatively well all the same. This is the shade 'Spring Green' which isn't as bad as the Collection 2000 polish, nowhere near as bad but it is still a colour that I just cannot pull off for some reason. It is however a good 'leaf' colour for my nail art attempts!

Here are the polishes on my nails, apologies for how scruffy these look!

Here I have two layers of each polish on my nails. The Collection polish I think comes out a bit more yellow than how it appears in the bottle but for me it still does nothing, it is quite an 'ill' colour on my nails. As for the Barry M polish, I really cannot decide, I don't love it but I can't say I hate it either.

What do you think?

  1. Ooh I don't like the Collection 2000 colour either! To be fair, I'm not a huge fan of bright green polish in general! xx

    1. I'm not a fan of green polishes, it's the one colour that once I have applied I automatically just want to take off :/ xx

  2. I have Spring Green and although I really like it (green is my favourite) I can agree it's not the best colour for nails! Great for leaves or polka dots though, and also better with a glitter coat :) xxx

  3. I have 'Spring Green' too. I find I like to pair it with purple for Halloween type things etc, it is quite BeetleJuice! I don't think yellow looks right on anyone's nails. I am yet to see anybody pull it off unfortunately.

    1. I once saw a yellow that looked 'ok', just 'ok'. I do find it a tough colour to pull off xx

  4. I have to say.. I am not a fan of that yellow, I know what you mean about it coming out as quite an ill colour. I recently found a yellow that works though, it had a bit more warmth to it and a slight shimmer too. Green would work well for leaves though, and I agree with Rachel - great for polka dots! xx

  5. I really have to say I have a love/hate relationship with Barry M polishes as I find they chip really easily, but love that they are cheap and cheerful :) I've never been a fan of yellow polishes just never had them look right on me.

    1. They do chip quite easily, I tend not to buy them very often now unless it's a shade I'm really craving or some new gimmick....like the gelly nail polishes haha! xx
