Barry M Nail Paints - 297 Blue Glitter, 291 Cobalt Blue, 306 Blueberry - £2.99 Boots - here
Hi Ladies, Hope you're okay! Today's post is a pretty one and I thought since my No.7 Nail Varnish Review (here) got a huge amount of loving I would talk about some of my other nail polishes that I love. To be honest from the high street the two brands I would go for in terms of nail polish would be either Barry M or No.7, I find that the Barry M nail polishes are a little bit more affordable though and therefore they are normally the ones I go for and I thought today I would show the 3 shades that I have the most loving for they are all different shades of blue & I think they're gorgeous.
I think Barry M Polishes are some of the best and I actually don't know anyone who doesn't actually like them. For me, they do the job and they do the job really well, they don't chip, they're cheap, they give a pretty opaque coverage on the nails and also don't have a ridiculous drying time. For me, the quality for the price is pretty impressive and to get the same quality you normally have to pay a huge deal more. For me I don't like spending a ton of money on a nail varnish just because i'm always changing what's on my nails and therefore it's not an essential or something I use every day. Anyway i'm going to get on to talking about the individual shades now.
297 - Blue Glitter
This colour is stunning, I love glitter, I'm one of those girls who absolutely laps up any bling and I personally find that this is one of those colours that is perfect for us girly girls, I love the glitterrr & this one really does pack a lot of glitter in. Once swiped on the nails you can get a pretty opaque coverage and the colour comes out exactly like it looks in the bottle, it's like a teal/sea blue colour packed with loads of silver sparkle. This would make a lovely top coat but would also look amazing on the nails by its self. I really enjoy using this polish, the only bad thing I could say about it is the fact it's such a pain too get off!! But I do pretty much find that with any glitter nail polishes, to be honest I think this nail varnish really reminds me of the Angelica Nail Polish in Exposure 65, that I did a review on here this one just has a slightly lighter base and the Angelica one has a lot more different coloured glitter. For some reason I couldn't find this polish avaliable at Boots but you can pick it up from Amazon here.
291 - Colbalt Blue
I love this colour, blue is my favourite colour in the whole entire world and this is the definition of the perfect blue shade for me, I think this is the perfect summer shade and this will look amazing on the nails throughout the summer months when you have a tan. This is a really bright blue and has amazing coverage, it also has quite a shiny finish which I really like and that saves me having to apply a shiny top coat on top. The only problem I really have with this particular polish is the fact that it has the longest drying time but I think this is the oldest of all the shades so maybe it's just taking longer because it's not as fresh and new. I really like this shade though and this one looks really nice with Blue Glitter over the top of it, they make a really nice combination and one I wear quite a lot. You can find this one again on Amazon here but I know they sell it on Superdrug too.
306 Blueberry -
I love this shade, this is one of the perfect colours that gets so much use from me, for Spring this shade is pretty amazing and this recently featured in my March Favourites because it's been getting a huge amount of loving lately. It's such a pastle blue colour but is also really bright so you don't end up with dull nails even though you have more of a toned down shade. This is perfect for Spring but will also work into Summer as I find pastle colours also look lovely with a tan. This one takes a little bit more building up than the other shades I've spoke about in this post but I think that's just because this one is a little paler and I find that lighter colours often take a lot more work than the darker shades though. This is probably my favourite of the bunch and one that I would really recommend. You can pick this shade up on Amazon again here or you can pick it up from Boots or Superdrug with it's new name 'Ice Cream Blue'.
Anyway I hope you girls enjoyed this post, let me know what your favourite nail varnish brand is in the comments and what you feel about Barry M as a brand and I'll speak to you all really soon.
Lots of Love
