Barry M: Silk Collection

L-R: Poppy*, Orchid*, Forest*
Next up on the Barry M swatching schedule is the Silk collection which has gained three new A/W shades. Emma and I liked the Silk collection when it first came out, but it was never one of our fave Barry M creations. The combination of pale shades and silky finish was pretty but didn't really stand out. These three new Silk shades are a game changer though! The rich autumnal shades work perfectly with the silky matte finish of this polish, beaut.

First up, Poppy*, a bright plummy shade. I almost didn't add a second coat to this mani as the colour is so dense I got amazing coverage on the first coat. It feels a bit wrong only adding one coat though so I added a second for good measure. There is no top coat on this swatch (or any of the others) to show off the lovely finish, but if you prefer shiny nails you can always add one. If you're a fan of red nails and want to try something a little different, this is for you.

Next is Orchid*, a bright purple shade. Again the colour of this polish is so rich and dense and the formula is beautifully smooth, another winner! I'm not sure the bright shade of purple is my kind of colour, but if you're a bit more daring then I'd recommend it. Once dry, two coats of Orchid* transforms your finger tips into little pieces of purple silk to brighten up your day!

Finally, my favourite, Forest*. I'm not usually a dark green polish fan but this is a stunner. It's a deep forest green (obvs) with a slight hint of dark turquoise, giving it slightly more depth than the first two shades. It's got the edge of a metallic polish with a matte finish which makes for a really interesting polish. A multifunctional winter polish this shade works perfectly for office, party and casual nails!

When we put all the new Barry M polishes on Instagram we got a lot of comments about these new Silk polishes as I don't think anyone was expecting them. They were a very pleasant surprise and have definitely turned our view of the Silk range around!

Poppy*, Orchid* and Forest* are available in Superdrug now priced at £3.99 each!



  1. These all look so nice! The colours look amazing (especially Forest) and I think the finish looks great :)

    1. We were quite impressed with the new colours. And really surprised as we thought the first collection was it from the Silks! E&J.xx

  2. Love the look of forest - definitely looking to get my hands on that one!

    1. You should! It is beautiful as a colour on its own or as a base for some nail art. E&J.xx
