Barry M Nail Varnish

I am a huge nail varnish hoarder, and Barry M nail polishes definitely make up a large proportion of my collection. I’ve been loving their latest shades, and have already stocked up on a few – including the new Glitterati and Aquarium polishes (as can be seen on my Instagram!). This week however, I purchased another three polishes I have had my eye on for a little while…
Barry M Gelly Hi Shine in Coconut – retailing at £3.99.
I’m a big fan of the Gelly collection and the glossier formula, but I was particularly drawn to this one. I tend to steer clear of neutral whiter shades, but really loved that Coconut is a little bit creamier and so not quite as harsh.
I applied two coats of this, and it seemed to be thick enough. Unlike some pale colours, the coats went on really nicely to leave a full block colour. It has such a shiny finish, and is perfect for wear alone – or as a base for some funky nail art!
Barry M Vintage Violet – retailing at £2.99.
Vintage Violet is one of the new shades that Barry M have added to their classic collection for Autumn, and I can definitely see it being one of my top polishes for the season. I haven’t got a polish quite like this one, which is a subtle violet with a greyish tone. It’s a really versatile shade, and adds a much needed pop of colour as we move into the colder months. My favourite!
Barry M Masquerade – retailing at £2.99.
I love the name of this nail varnish, which is another new addition to the classic collection. It’s a mix of turquoise, purple and gold glitter and would be perfect for layering over the above polishes. I found it really easy to apply this evenly across the nail, and when the coats dry it doesn’t leave the scratchy feel you can get from some varnishes. It’s a really great glitter combination in the run up to Christmas, and I will definitely be glitzing up with this for the festivities!
