Barry M. - Nail Paints

I promised a post - here it is! I had to change my post title font because for some reason my fancy one just stopped working - little bugger! It took me absolutely ages to change the html coding (i'm a bit technically challenged) but i finally managed it.

Happy New Year everyone ;) I'm aware that i'm a little late - you know what they say? Better late than never!

I decided to write about Barry M Nail Paints - I thought i had a VAST collection, only to turn out i had like 8. Hah. I still decided to split it into two posts because i don't want to be like a nail varnish troll. Stay tuned for the next part and FOTD's - who knows maybe i'll venture out into doing OOTD's (I really dont like using these terms they feel funny to say) but not entirely sure about that yet.


•272- Shocking Pink, it's opaque after apply 1 coat! Bright alert with this one!

•313- Dusky Mauve, supposedly a dupe for Chanel's Paradoxal. It's a bit dark, and there aren't as many purple particles as in Paradoxal but I guess it's good enough for a dupe. You have to apply 2/3 coats to get it completely opaque.

•217-This has no name, i think it might've been a L.E edition item. Mmmmm, this reminds me of peacocks - it's kind of blue with green particles. It also contains silver glitter which I'm not too fond of but considering it's not that visable once it's on the nails it's okay :) I usually need to apply 3 coats.

•295- Pure Turquoise, I actually love this - it's so lovely. It's actually what the name says! I normally need 2 coats

It's a bit hit or miss with Barry M nail varnishes - some chip quickly and some stay on for ages but I can't complain because at around £3 the price is competetive and the choice is wide - you can BEYOND every colour of the rainbow.

On the side, I got quite good marks in my prelim exams so I'm a happy bunny! Christmas was better that I initially expected so that's another reason to be happy. Just hoping 2011 won't bring major disappointments for me!
