Ready for round two of the Spring Barry M swatches? Good, today we have the four new Sunset Nail Paints! This batch is completely different to the Speedies as all four are bright and fun and make us long for summer.
EMPIRE STATE OF MIND
I've got to start with my favourite from the bunch, Empire State of Mind*. I know Barry M have a ton of mint polishes already but this does differ to all those already in my collection, I promise. As far as I'm concerned you can't beat a good mint shade, so much so it's part of my wedding colour scheme. Maybe that's why I'm such a fan of this polish! The formula is stunning, silky smooth and gorgeously shiny.
PINKING OUT LOUD
Next up is Pinking Out Loud*, after all the pinks and neutrals in the new Speedy release you'd think we'd have enough of them but this is lovely. It's completely different, although still a soft shade it's right at the upper limit of a pastel, verging on a bright polish. It's found that perfect space between full on bright summer nails and playing it safe pastels. I'll definitely be rocking this when the sun finally comes out!
BUG A BLUE
I surprised myself by finding Bug A Blue* my second favourite out of these four polishes. The colour density is stunning and the polish is just so vibrant. It's not a subtle shade in any way but there is still a slight softness to it, as with Pinking Out Loud* it's a perfect mix of bright and pastel. I'm just itching to get this polish into some nail art, maybe something floral or a clean white aztec pattern?
ALL THE THINGS SHE RED
The name of this polish, All The Things She Red*, throws me off a little. It's not really a red but more of an orange or coral shade. Unfortunately it's one of those that doesn't come out quite as vibrant on camera, especially when you're battling with the British weather and imminent rain! This is the only one of the four that doesn't have any touch of pastel to it. It's a full on summer bright and will be perfect for those early festivals!
All these polishes are available now online and in Boots and Superdrug stores nationwide. They cost £4.99 each but do look out for some cheeky deals!
Don't forget to pick up a bottle of Daylight Curing topcoat* for extra shine and staying power!
