Barry M recently released four new Speedy polishes and needless to say - we love them! We're being really slow at getting them swatched for you, so sorry. In the meantime I have used two today in nail art, which is what we're all about anyway!
The four new shades are below, from left to right, Slipstream*, Sprint Finish*, Dragster*, Dead Heat*. It's great to have some autumn winter Speedy shades, you know how much we've loved the pastels this summer!! I picked out my favourite two Dragster* and Sprint Finish* for today's design.
I used Sprint Finish* for the main colour of this mani as I was really drawn to the gorgeous deep red shade. It's described by Barry M as Pomegranate - yum! I have to admit though I was slightly disappointed by the application, it wasn't up to the usual Barry M standard. The formula seemed a bit grainy and it was hard to get a smooth finish. It could just be that I got a bad bottle as I haven't found this issue with any of the other four. It also stained my fingers a fair bit when I removed it, again, not something I'd expect from Barry M.
I went for negative space with Dragster* dark grey stripes for the two accent nails. You have to be quick when using Speedy polishes for stripes as they dry so fast! I added some roses using another Speedy polish, Kiss Me Quick*, Sprint Finish* again and a couple of green polishes - Cardamom* and Waikiki*.
These Speedy polishes are already out in the shops - do you have any? If so, which is your favourite? If you want to have a closer look you can see them on the Barry M website. We'll get some swatches up soon if people want them?
