Barry M varnishes

Last week I posted a picture of my new Barry M nail polishes which loads of you were interested in (thank you for all of those comments!) so I decided to show you what they looked like on. Take note before you see the varnishes that my awful application skills supported by my equally as bad camera skills serve the colours no justice!

First up is ‘lemon’, which is my least favourite by far! I found this varnish so hard to work with hence why it looks awful upon application. The first time I applied this I messed up the colour so badly that I had to put instant effects over the top of it.





‘Dusky mauve’ is a lot easier to work with, not my favourite but pretty all the same. I think I’ll get more use out of this in the winter.



Lastly my favourite! ‘Berry’ is a perfect pastel for summer, will definitely be re-purchasing this when it runs out!

I love all three. I've been after a lovely lilac colour for years, so I'm glad this colour is coming back into fashion. And the dusky mauve, *swoon* Should anyone actually swoon over a nail varnish? I'm not sure. Haha. I must admit I love the yellow, but I don't think I could be patent enough to apply it.

Barry M is definitely my favourite brand when it comes to nail varnish! I am so bad at applying it too, you look great though! The yellow looks amazing with the Instant Effects, I really want some but its been sold out everywhere for a while :(

'berry' is my favorite BM colour but i actually really like the yellow - especially with the cracked effect over the top! x

Sarah said...

The lavender is so pretty!

Rachelous said...

I've got berry as well, it's lovely! Although I do like the yellow with the nail effects too! :) Nice to see another Lush fan by the way, I've only just started using their "fresh" products and they do wonders.. xx

Emily said...

I've lived in Berry for the past few months, I think it might be one of my favourites ever, easily in the top 5! Like everyone else I really like the yellow with the nail effects, one of the best colours for it xxx

Alex said...

Oooh, I love the black crackle over yellow! Looks really gorgeous :)

I have so much Barry M in my nail polish collection. Boots had a 2 for £5 offer on them and I really stocked up, ahaha.
