Barry M Limited Edition

Earlier this week we got some VERY exciting nail mail - a Barry M haul of polishes, lipstick and lip balm. First up we've swatched the four Limited Edition polishes, which are due for release in June. Two will be available exclusively at Boots, and the other two exclusively at Superdrug.

The collection is bright and summery, with two metallics, one shimmer and one creme. The bottles are super cute, and the names are all based on the seaside. They're making us dream of sun, sand and ice creams!

L-R: Superdrug: Promenade*, Seaside*. Boots: Carousel*, Bikini*
This is Promenade*, the first of the exclusive Superdrug duo. It's a bright metallic Barbie pink. As usual, Barry M have nailed the formula, this polish had the potential to be thin and lack in colour density, but it was bright and opaque in two coats! Definitely an eye catcher, especially as the metallic effect catches the light beautifully.
The second Superdrug polish is Seaside*, another bright metallic but this time blue. In the bottle it looks similar to Pacific from the Aquarium collection, but this polish is a much brighter blue, and doesn't have the same greeny/gold tones. The metallic effect of this polish really makes it look like sea water, glimmering in the sun! I used three coats to make this totally opaque.

Moving on to the Boots polishes, this is Carousel*. You can't see it too well in these photos but this is a lovely coral colour with a gold shimmer - you can see it a little bit in the bottle. This colour is really me and one I will be wearing a lot over summer. I used two coats here. 

Finally, my favourite of the four, Bikini* which will be available at Boots. This is the only creme polish with no shimmer, and it's a beautiful purpley blue colour. It's a great fun shade for a plain mani or nail art - I've already done some nail art on it which you'll see soon. This swatch is two coats. 
The two Superdrug polishes will be available in store from 4th June. The two Boots polishes will be available in store from 11th June. Get them while you can as these gorgeous colours won't be hanging around for long!
Thanks for the sneak peek Barry M! 




  1. These all look amazing! Bikini is definitely my favourite - it's such a nice colour! :)

    1. They're all great but the Boots ones really stood out for us. Bikini is really wearable for all seasons. E&J.xx
