Barry M: Autumn/Winter Shades

L-R: Nightshade*, Vintage Violet*, Ballerina*, Twilight*
Our next set of Barry M swatches are the new Autumn/Winter shades which have been added to the main polish collection, along with a Limited Edition glitter. We were absolutely itching to get our hands on the three polish shades as they are just right for the coming seasons, and so darn pretty! I'll run through each colour individually for you.


This is Nightshade* the darkest polish of the trio. The swatch makes it look a shade darker than it actually is, so bear that in mind. The true life colour is a dark, dusty, purple shade and it's gorgeous! Perfect for someone who likes dark nails but doesn't quite want to go full goth with black polish. I used two coats for the swatches, topped with Seche Vite. 


Next is Vintage Violet*, again this shade has a dusty colour tone to it, hinted at by the word vintage in it's name we suppose. Barry M have managed to succeed at something I wasn't sure was possible, they've created a lovely soft purple shade which is actually wearable as a full mani. I'm often disappointed with purple shades once they're on, but this one is stunning. A true autumnal shade, this is a must-have!


Lastly, Ballerina*, the lightest of the three polishes. This polish moves away from the purple tones and over to pink, whilst keeping the lovely dusty tone. It's almost a nude making it hugely wearable, and like the other two polishes, it's a very 'grown up' shade. I have a feeling this will become a firm favourite for office nails, and I'm predicting it as Emma's favourite of the bunch.


Along with the three new colours, there is also a new glitter, Twilight* although we believe this is Limted Edition. Unfortunately I haven't swatched this very well for you, so apologies for that! I wanted to show off the glitter in all it's glory so didn't use any base polish, which is why you can see my nails. I got good, but not full coverage with two coats of glitter. It's a gorgeous mix of large and small silver and blue glitter pieces, but I'd recommend using it as a topper over a base colour of your choice, rather than onto bare nails as I did.

I can't choose a favourite, help! Which one of these do you like best?

These polishes are available now at Superdrug, priced at £2.99 each!

Love,

  2. Barry M has always been one of my favourite nail polish brands because the quality is always so good and they're so reasonably priced! I think my favourite out of this collection is Ballerina, it looks like a shade that could so easily be worn every day!
