Barry M Bright Purple

Hi. I'm sorry I look like I've been abandoning my blog lately but I just haven't felt like blogging about anything recently. I have a couple of really awesome polish/manis in my backlog which I will definitely post when I feel like it.

I was going to write this post yesterday but I fell asleep (with the lights on, and my brother switched off the lights, leaving me to wake up in a daze and in the dark). I decided I can't leave this any longer because if I don't post this sooner, I probably won't do it later either.

My mood has been crushed, blended and fed to the Kraken by the news of the death of my cousin's 12 year old dog. I've known her for the longest time ever and she was such a darling. She was so well-trained and obedient. She was afraid of fireworks and would tremble whenever they were played. I am absolutely devastated and heartbroken that I didn't get to see her in the last few months of her life and that I will never get to run my hands through her fur or scratch behind her ears and on her neck, feed her crackers or even just see or hear her running to the gate when someone came home. I will miss the way she used to cross her front legs when she lay down and how she would move them if I touched them, the way her nails clicked on the floor, how she would stand up her two hind legs and bring her front paws together when she saw the people she loved most.

Rest in peace, Angel. If there was ever a dog worthy of that name, it would be you.

Sorry for the sob story. Back to the polish. I did 2 coats with China Glaze Fast Forward. I love the formula of Barry M polishes, the only exception being Mint Green. Not too thick and not too runny, and opaque in two coats. Gorgeous colors too.

That's all. I apologise for the lack of enthusiasm in this post but I really don't have an ounce of enthusiasm in my body right now.


  1. *Hugs* Sweetie, I'm so sorry. It's so rough to lose pets, even if they aren't your own it's easy to get attached :( Take the time you need, we'll always wait around for your gorgeous nails <3

  2. The absence of the "clicking" on the floor after a pet dies is deafening and so sad. Hugs to you.

    2ndly, I love this color on you! And, have I told you how much I love the shape of your nails? You have fantastic nail beds ;-)

    Hope your week gets better....sending you good vibes <3

  3. I've just experienced how gorgeous the Barry M. polishes are, and this colour is beautiful! It should be on my wish list :)

  4. We do get attached to our furry friends. We had a hard time when our previous cat got sick and then passed away. We actually had to put her to sleep because she was suffering and barely moved at all during the day.
    Lovely colour. All I hear is praise about Barry M lacquers.

  5. Sorry about your cousin's dog <3

  6. So sorry for what's been happening. :( (((hugs)))

  7. Kirsten - *hugs* Thanks love. You are so sweet (: <3

    Maribeth - Thank you! There will be "clicking" from the other dog but they've only had her for a couple of years. It's still not the same though. And thank you again! I am blushing over here (:

    Elsa P. - If you like the color, nothing should be stopping you from getting this one ;)

    marox79 - Sorry to hear about your cat. At least she's not in pain anymore. & the polishes only get praise because they deserve it ;)

    nicnacksnails - Thank you <3

    kittypolishnbags - Thanks hun *hugs*
