Barry M Nail polish!

OKAY OKAY, I know I say this EVERY time I get a new nail varnish, but I have again found my perfect favourite nail polish from Barry M – Apart from Pink Flamingo, of course.

297 – Blue Glitter

This nail varnish is AMAZING!  It is so beautiful, I’ve only been wearing it for one day and I’ve already had numerous compliments on how pretty it is!  In real life it is a lot more stunning than in the pictures, I’d say it is more of a teal/blue/green in the flesh.  It sparkles whenever you move your hands and I’ve fallen in love with it.

In the pictures above I’m wearing two coats – so you don’t need too much product to get the gorgeous glittery effect.  It dries in quite gritty – you can see in the pictures, but I much prefer the gritty look rather than a flat effect, if you know what I mean? It just stands out a lot more.  The one thing that lets me down about this polish though, is the fact that it does take ages to dry.  You can probably tell in these pictures that the middle nail smudged so I had to apply more to cover it up – but this isn’t just a normal smudge, its a ‘if-i-smudge, half-the-varnish-comes-right-off-the-nail’ smudge, which sucks but I can live with it.

I also picked up 292 – Navy

This is a beautiful colour and the only one I have like it in my collection, but obviously I’m not as amazed by it as the previous one.  To the eye this looks more like a dark dark blue/black, but in the light it shines blue which is very pretty and quite elegant as well.

What does everyone think of my new favourite nail varnish? D’ya reckon you’ll pick some up when next out shopping?

    Can't believe I've never stumbled upon your blog before (I got here from your guest review post at Beauty Junkie's blog). It's lovely and I am a follower now! 🙂 keep up the good work.

    As for the varnish, I love the first one, it is so summery. Makes me long for an afternoon on the side of the pool and a cocktail in a tall glass 😉

    Like that's gonna happen any time soon!

    Ha, Katie, we should get together in London, paint our nails bright colours and have a cocktail sipping session 😉 I can't vouch for the weather though.

    Hang on, scratch that. I can vouch for it being crap.
