Barry M Silk Review

Friday, 2 May 2014


And the obsessions continues.. If you've been reading my blog for a while you'll know that I am well and truly obsessed with Barry M and their nail varnish range, I buy almost every single collections and don't be fooled, the silk collection was no different.

I got the whole collection apart from one colour - Truffle, which I felt I just didn't particularly like nore did I feel it would suit me. The shades I did get were Blossom - a gorgeous pastel pink, Heather - a light purple shade, Pearl - perfectly named as it is literally pearl colour, a shimmery white, Meadow - a pretty pastel light green, and finally Mist - a gorgeous sky blue shade. Each polish has a silk effect to them, which gives off a slight shimmer/shine.

The application of the polishes, as always with Barry M, are very easy, I prefer to use two coats whenever I paint my nails, although one will do fine for all, other than Pearl, which due to it's lighter colour, can come off a bit sheer at times. The lasting power is also similar to Barry M's other nail varnishes, with a top coat they can last a solid 5 days, give or take a few days depending on what you do! My favourite shade has to be Blossom as I haven't stopped wearing it since, it's the perfect girly shade. I feel the collection has Spring/Summer written all over it and was released at just the right time, and with each bottle retailing at £3.99 it's a win win situation!

Pros:
  • cheap
  • perfect for spring/summer
  • good lasting power
Cons:
  • sometimes requires a few coats
