Nail Varnish Collection: Barry M

Third in my nail collection series is Barry M. I think Barry M polishes are one of the first brands I ever bought back when I was first getting into doing my nails. They are cheap as chips (2.99 for the basic nail paints/glitters) but great quality and the colour range is amazing- to be honest I don't know why I haven't got more!

Anyway, here are the ones I do have:

Clockwise from silver (some have names some are so old they only have numbers!): 288, Blueberry Ice Cream, Mint Green, Acid Yellow, Lemon Ice Cream, 134, Coral, Peach Melba, Strawberry Ice Cream, Boots Limited Edition and Bright Purple. 

They are all really easy to apply and I'd say you need 2-3 coats to get proper opaque coverage. The only one of the above with a poor consistency is Acid Yellow, for some reason it's gone really gloopy and takes about 5 coats to look like the colour above. It's a shame because I love the shade, especially on tanned hands as it really pops. Maybe I just got a dud one, or left the cap off or something.

These 4 shades are my favourites:

I would highly recommend Barry M, and I'm definitely going to branch out and get some more shades, especially as they've got lots of glitters and have introduced new ideas like the Gelly and Textured polishes.

As we're on the subject of nails I thought I would post some nail arts I have been sporting  recently:

I love nail art and I think I'm getting better with practice- I just need to make sure I'm extra careful as some of the edges are messy!

  1. I love Barry M as well, a good sub for Models Own I feel as the colour palette and consistency are so good.

    I am loving your work my dear, as always! :)
