Superdrug is introducing Braid Bars to its stores

Braid BarSo there’s some exciting news for beauty fans… Superdrug has just announced you will now be able to get your hair plaited while you shop as it is introducing Braid Bars to five of its stores this year!

The Braid Bars will offer a menu of braided and plaited hairstyles, with prices starting at a bargain price of £10.

The first Superdrug Braid Bar will open in Superdrug’s Westfield White City store in November. Stores in Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol and a second London store will all offer the service before the end of 2015.

What’s better is that you don’t even need to book – it will just be a walk-in service!

A similar service is already offered in Topshop.

Happy braiding 🙂

Product Review: Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint in ‘Huckleberry’

Barry M 1So if you have see any of my previous nail polish reviews, you will have realised that I’m pretty addicted to the Barry M Gelly range…

As well as drying really quickly, they also give a thick, glossy coat that lasts more than five minutes. The only thing about the range is that there weren’t that many different colour to choose from at first.

However, Barry M has totally pulled it out of the bag by introducing some new Gelly pastel shades for spring/summer! When I heard the news I was literally so excited to go to Superdrug and get some (sad, I know).

There are three new fruit-inspired shades that have been introduced by Barry M. These are ‘Huckberry’, a pastel blue, as well as a pink shade named  ‘Rose Hip‘ (Superdrug haved called it ‘Pink Lady for some reason) along with a minty shade named ‘Sugar Apple. ‘

As you can see above, I opted for the ‘Huckleberry’ shade first, as I’m loving pastel blue nails at the moment. Once again, like the brighter shades that I have used in the range, the polish dried really quickly and with a great shine. You also get a nice thick colour after just a couple of coats, which is great.

This shade looks great if you are wearing other pastel colours. For example, I wore it with a pink fluffy jumper.

Now all I have to do is try both the other new shades – I can’t wait! Superdrug has a deal where you get two of the polishes for £6 at the moment, so make sure you take advantage of that. Normally the polishes are priced at £3.99 each – still a bargain for such a good product.

Let me know what you think of the Gelly polishes or the new shades if you try them out!
