Barry M Speedy Quick Dry Nail Paint £3.99 each

I hate waiting for nail varnish to dry! I am far too impatient and no matter how long I leave it, it usually smudges. Barry M have recently expanded their fab nail product collection with a new line of nail polishes that dry very quickly. Here are the original 9 shades in the line up, there is pretty much a shade for everyone here.

This line of nail paints has bottles and names of course all designed around the theme of speed and racing. I love the racing flag lids, they are different, fun and easily identifiable. The names too are all excellently themed. 
This range introduces a brilliant new brush, which makes applying polish very easy and fast. It's a completely flat brush with a rounded end, it covers the whole nail and gives you an even coat in one stroke.  I'd love to see this style of brush introduced into other Barry M polishes.

The line up of Speedy Quick Dry Nail Paints includes shades:

In A Heartbeat- slightly muted salmon pink, very classic and sophisticated.
Kiss Me Quick- traditional, bright baby pink.
Full Throttle- fun bright peach and orange mix, quite creamy in finish.
Stop The Clock- a pastel yellow with a hint of a grey nude.  
Lap Of Honour- a dusty mauve shade with a grey tint.
Road Rage- a mint green that leans slightly more towards a sea green shade.
Pole Position- a pistachio green that is very unique.
Eat My Dust- a soft powdery blue, very pretty.
Pit Stop- a nude grey mix, one of my favourites.

I think it's quite a basic collection in terms of exciting shades, but that's in no way a bad thing. I view this collection as a great way to pick up some go to polish shades with the clever speedy dry formula.

Do the polishes actually dry fast? Yes they do. Two coats is touch dry in under five minutes.
The finish is quite normal, not too glossy or too matte. Some of the lighter shades need three thin coats but most the range is good with two normal coats of polish.

If you are in the market for some new nail paints then definitely pick these up!

imPRESS accent press on nails

imPRESS Accent Press on Nails £6.98

I'm terrible at nails, I can just about paint them nicely but can't do any sort of nail art. I love the idea of well manicured nails but I'm too scared to get any sort of gel or acrylic nails done properly. I've used imPRESS nails before and think they are great for a quick and easy manicure. 

imPRESS Accent Nails come in a range of different designs, I've tried out the Bells and Whistle print which I think are really fun. The nails are mint green, one of my favourite colours, with an aztec print accent nail. In each set of imPRESS Accent Nails you get a range of different nail sizes with numbers on for you to match up the correct sizes. There is also a nail file and wipe. 

Even for someone as incapable as me, imPRESS nails are so easy to apply. You simply wipe over nails and file them, then match up the correct sizes and press them on. I like to apply pressure for a minute or so on each nail just to make sure the nail is properly secure. This set of nails lasted four days before they started to fall off. I don't think that's bad at all for nails that don't use any glue or anything that could cause damage to your nails.

If you've got a last minute event or party to go to, or are heading to a summer festival or generally just want an easy manicure, then you should definitely check out the imPRESS range. There are so many fun colours and designs. 

You can pick up imPRESS Accent Nails in Asda and other beauty suppliers.
Have you tried imPRESS nails before?
