Inexpensive Beauty Find: Barbara Daly Pirate NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On March - 21 - 2012

This little polish spoke to me a couple of weeks ago when I was in my local Tesco (ok, not local – I especially went the extra 3 miles so I could visit one with a beauty aisle) picking up some baby wipes.  It’s a slightly odd colour no?  A bizarre mish-mash of khaki, nude and gold with a delicate multi-coloured shimmer.

It spoke to me.  It said, “Buy me.  You know that you shouldn’t because you already have a billion sitting unswatched, but you know you want to.  Put down the Harissa Paste (what do you need that for anyway) and buy me instead.”

Coincidentally, the Harissa Paste was £2.99 (what do I need that for anyway?) and this little polish from Barbara Daly was £3.00 – fair swapsies.

As much as I like it, it’s a four-coater – which sucks when the bottle is only 7ml but I think it’s still worth the punt.  Swap it for something less tasty though, like Domestos.

Barbara Daly Nail Polish is available instore at Tesco, priced at £3 a bottle.  I think it’s currently on a 3for2 aswell.

    That is a very nice toned down shade.
    It has a more autumnal feel to it – in my mind – so perhaps I will grab it for when that season rolls around again 🙂

    Nice colour. I love BD stuff.
    Four coats is a lot of effort though!

    i would just love to see a catalogue of all the barbara daly polishes
    if only leila could take a picture of the stand with her v tech camera…

    I have never had any luck with BD polishes. 4 coats. WTF!!

    I have no idea what Harissamcthingy is. Evidently I haven’t lived.

    So funny, I’ve actually bought this today! Together with the two purple ones, on of them seems like agood dupe of the Zoya polish you swatched the other day. I think it was Zoya anyway, the purple one with delicate shimmer. ♥

  6. Oooh the colour is so unusual and grungy but in a pretty way. But four coats? Meh that’s a bit much, I don’t have enough patience. I think I can help you out with what the harissa paste is for, though. I think you’re supposed to put a teaspoon in with your couscous, think “mmmm, authentic”, put it in the fridge and forget about it, then four months later decide you want couscous again, check the jar and discover it says “Consume within three weeks”, think “balls” and chuck it in the bin. Pretty sure that’s what you’re supposed to do with it. 🙂 x

    This is really pretty. I tried a Barbara Daly for Tesco polish a while back and was really impressed with it – lasted for ages without chipping.
    It’s about eight months old now and has gone a bit gloopy, but we had a good innings.

  8. Beautiful color. Is this available in the states?
