Barry M: Glitterati

L-R: Fashion Icon*, Catwalk Queen*, Starlet*, Socialite*, VIP*, Rockstar*
Barry M just dropped FIFTEEN new polishes on us without any warning. Best. Day. Ever! We were so lucky to receive testers of all the polishes to swatch and review for you. We've separated them into a few different posts so look out for them over the next week or so.

Today we start with Glitterati, a set of six new luminescent glitter polishes. These polishes are formed of a tinted jelly base, packed full of iridescent glitter pieces which give off an unbelievable sparkle! The full effect of the glitter was hard to capture on the camera so we fully recommend getting yourself to Superdrug to see these first hand. 

We swatched each polish individually, using a base colour to match the tint of the polish. As the colour in this range is not that dense using a matching base colour helps to show off the polish without having to add multiple coats. As you know, multiple coats of glitter polish can end up getting a bit lumpy. Doing it this way we only needed to use one coat of Glitterati, almost as a polish 'topper'. We then added a generous coat of Seche Vite to finish the manis.







This whole range is absolutely beautiful but my fave is definitely Rockstar*. Over a black base coat the glitter looks so bright and really glows. I can see this being used a lot in galaxy manis, actually all of them could! You could use the polishes on their own, or as a topper over any base colour of your choice. 

These polishes are perfect for the party season, we can't wait to wear them with a little black dress!

Available now in Superdrug for £3.99 each



  1. This collection looks great! They are so sparkly! I think Rockstar is my favourite! Ooh I had a quick look at some of Barry M's new releases in Superdrug and I love the look of their 2 new additions to the aquarium collection, especially Persian! :)

    1. We have a review coming up of the new Aquarium shades tomorrow! They are beautiful too. From this collection Rockstar is definitely our favourite as a wearable shade. E&J.xx

  2. I'm so excited - I can't wait to see the other swatches! I was so excited to hear they'd released more polishes in the Aquarium and Silk collections - the new shades look incredible! :)
