Hello everyone! I hope you are all doing well! Just a quick update before I head straight into today's blog post! I am away from home for the duration of this week. Although I will have internet access I may be a bitter slower in responding to any comments and tweets so please check back if you are awaiting a response! Don't worry though! There will still be posts throughout this week as usual!
Buisness out of the way... lets get straight in to today's blog post! A few weeks ago when I finished work for the summer I decided I wanted to go out and pick up a few new nail polishes. I paint my nails the most in the summer as I have more time to do so and I am less likely to chip them. I love Barry M nail polishes, particularly their Gelly Hi-Shine nail polishes of which I will link reviews of at the end of this post. I picked up two Barry M polishes with a free limited edition shade!
I ended up picking these three shades which I think are absolutely gorgeous. I initially went looking for a turquoise colour which you can see I managed to find!
The three shades I picked up were 417 Blue Grape, 420 Guava and Bikini 421 which is the limited edition shade I chose. The limited edition shade is one of their normal formulas and not the Gelly Hi-Shine formula.
417 - Blue Grape
First lets a look at 417 Blue Grape. This blue is absolutely gorgeous. I got a lot of compliments on this nail polish! I would describe this shade as the perfect electric blue. I personally was a bit unsure of this colour at first as it is a deep colour but it is bright! Something about the colour made me a bit unsure however over time I really loved the colour.
420 - Guava
Next we have 420 Guava which is my favourite of the bunch. It is exactly what I was looking for. The colour is so opaque and I only needed one coat. It is absolutely fantastic and this bright colour actually went with a lot of my clothes! I have been grabbing this shade a lot over this summer. Definitely a summer favourite!
421 - Bikini
Next we have the limited edition shade 421 Bikini. I really love this colour as it a great blend of a lavender colour and a neon purple. It really is a lovely and wearable colour. It is hard to find wearable coloured nail polish sometimes however I think this is the perfect shade for adding a splash of colour to your outfits and to your nails!
Lastly I thought I would add this in to show you guys! I created a different spin on the traditional manicured nail look by using 420 Guava on all my nails expect my ring finger nails which I used 417 Blue Grape. I think this combination of colours works so well. It almost gives an under water/ sea type of vibe don't you think? No? Just me? Okay!
I hope you guys enjoyed this look at a few Barry M nail polishes that I have picked up recently. Below are some other reviews of the Barry M Hi-Shine nail polishes that I have written:
