Review | New Barry M Nail Paint Shades

Barry M Nail Paints* in Ballerina, Vintage Violet and Nightshade £2.99 each

Since Barry M brought out their Gelly Hi Shine range I've neglected their original Nail Paints, however when I was young it was pretty much my life goal to collect them all! Barry M have a huge range of colours in their classic Nail Paint and have just added three new shades to the family.

Ballerina- A dusty pink that is soft and very pretty. I actually prefer this with a matte top coat to almost toughen up the girliness!
Vintage Violet- A deep violet with a grey undertone. I own nothing like this and think it's a great polish for winter and into spring time.
Nightshade- A very dark plum that looks almost black. It doesn't photograph as beautiful as it is in person!

Ballerina, Vintage Violet and Nightshade are all cream finish polishes with a lovely gloss finish. They perform much better than polishes that cost double the price. The Nail Paints apply smoothly and work best when applied in thin coats. They are thinner in consistency than the Gelly's so sometimes dry a bit streaky and need a third coat of polish.

For £2.99 these are great polishes but I will always prefer the Barry M Gelly's!
Have you tried the Barry M Nail Paints?

*pr sample, reviews 100 honest as always
