Boots Beauty Haul: Lee Stafford Coco Loco Coconut Hairspray & Barry M Limited Edition Summer 2016 Nail Polishes

Boots Limited Edition Barry M Nail Polishes & Lee Stafford Coconut Hairspray
Whilst back to school week marks the end of summer for most, the sudden emptiness of the shops has allowed me to venture out for some leisurely browsing on my lunch breaks. And this week I found my feet leading me towards Boots' open doors. Though I wasn't looking for anything in particular, as usual, I didn't leave empty handed, instead I added two new nail polishes from Barry M to my shopping basket along with an exciting new Lee Stafford hairspray.

The two nail polishes are Summer 2016 Limited Editions exclusively for Boots, and out of the total range of four shades, I decided to pick up:

Golden Sands - a gorgeous pinky-nude with gold flecks running through it
Beachy Keen - a subtle tan polish

As with all of Barry M's nail polishes, I never really find the consistency changes - the polishes always apply beautifully and one coat gives a solid translucent, buildable finish. I'm currently wearing 'Beachy Keen' which is probably my favourite of the two shades, and after a days' wear I've seen no visible chipping to the polish, which is amazing for me! Though these shades were designed to be for the summer months, I definitely feel like 'Beachy Keen' is a lovely transitional hue to wear into Autumn - it's not too pastel or too harsh, with a gorgeous glow to it.

My other purchase was something I actually picked up spontaneously at the till point, knowing I'd run out of hairspray at home. Lee Stafford's pastel pink packaging jumped out at me and it wasn't until later that I actually realised that the product was coconut scented! Long time followers of my blog will know that I have a serious coconut addiction, so I almost feel like this was the fate of the Beauty Gods that I would pick this up. Okay bit OTT, but seriously I've never loved a hairspray so much in my life! Lee Stafford's Coco Loco Coconut Hairspray still has that bitter scent (and taste if you're unlucky enough to breath a little too much of this in) to it that's typical of hairsprays. But initially your senses are flooded with a rich coconut aroma. The product itself isn't sticky and doesn't leave your hair feeling hard, but it does have fantastic hold and can be brushed out with ease - perfect for styling, and in my case taming unruly bangs! I'd reccommend this to anyone who's open to trying a new hairspray or is obsessed with coconut as much as I am!
