Barry M Beauties

Aloha Sprinklerinos,

Last week Matt and I were in Milton Keynes shopping centre to show Baby Glitter the lights and festive displays. Naturally, like a moth to a flame I was drawn to the cosmetic stands in Superdrug and ended up treating myself to a few Barry M bits.



I initially wanted a mooch at 'Red Black' but then 'Rasberry' caught my eye and said, "I'm so jolly, I'm so festive, don't leave me, buy me, buy me!" and who can refuse a talking nail varnish?? Not me.

The 'Lilac' foil effect polish came free for spending over £6. I'm really not a fan of it and fail to see how it is actually classed as an effect. Surely there are tonnes of nail varnishes out there that give off a metalic finish? Hmmm. I might give it a whirl and see if the proof is in the pudding.



After all the lovely compliments I have had on my other Lip Lacquer in Party Pink (I've worn it a lot in my videos of late), I decided to pick up another, this time in Cherry Red. I'm excited to pop this on my pout. Oohh that was illiteration at it's best, haha.


Without flash.

With flash.

I'm pleased as punch to have these little bits in my stash. I've never gone wrong with Barry M. It's affordable, has a huge fun range and really allows you to go wild with colour.

Are you a Barry M girl?

Toodlepip!

  4. Honestly, i really dislike Barry M nail paints at the moment (bar the gold foil effect)
    I much prefer Models Own and they are only a couple of extra pounds.

  5. Great little haul! I love Barry M, I get so many compliments whenever I wear Mushroom. I picked up Red Black a few weeks ago but my nails are poop at the moment and I can't wear it until they start behaving again.
    Raspberry is gorgeous! I swatched it a few months ago:

  15. Ooh the Red Black nail polish looks very, VERY similar to Valentine from Revlon - my all time favourite nail varnish. Such a lovely blood red (actually, ew, how gruesome! But oh well!) but it's a great colour for the winter. Raspberry also looks gorgeous.

    I'm not sure how the Lilac Foil Effect can be classed as an effect either? I've seen pictures/reviews of the silver and gold ones and it has a slightly matte finish? It would probably be better to just buy actual nail foils.

  16. Red Black is probably one of my favourite Barry M varnishes. I totally agree with you about how they are marketing their metallic varnishes as an 'effect' Bit poo really! x

  21. You had maybe tried this but you can also highlight text by clicking where you want the highlight to start and then pressing shift and the > arrow until you have selected everything that you want to select. :D

  22. 'red black' is such a gorgeous colour, i can't wait to run out and get it :) that lilac looks really nice too, but i don't think metallic can be classed as an effect either, can it? x

  33. Love the colours you chose! I picked up two Barry M nail paints a few days ago (grey and the purple crackle) and got the lilac foil colour free too. At first I was like.... This colour int fer me but al av it for nowt (<that's my Yorkshire accent - posh!) Anyway, I have the foil on now and I loves it! I have it under the purple crackle and they compliment each other nicely. You should definitely give the lilac foil a try... it might just surprise you!

  36. Hi Louise! Do you know if Barry M Nail Paints or Gellys are only found in the UK? I'd really like to try them but I'm not finding them anywhere and there's barely any choices on eBay.
