Barry M - Nail Polish

About 2 weeks ago I was in my local Superdrug having a little look before work, I was not really looking for anything, but I noticed that they now stock Barry M products.
I had never used anything from the range, but I am drawn to the wide range of colours available - a la MAC. As I am very happy with all of the facial cosmetics that I use I decided to have a look at the nail polish. I love Chanel Rouge Noir, but my nails chip so badly that I can not justify the cost! Anyway I have tried lots of cheaper brands that stock a similar colour and had not found a good one!

So, I thought I would give the Barry M version, 115, a go. I am so glad that I did. In my honest opinion it is just FAB!! And it is only £2.95!

The polish is a lot thinner than OPI or Creative etc but I think that may be what works??
I applied the first coat (in work - as you do) and was not happy at all with the colour or finish. It was an uneven colour that looked nothing like the colour that I was expecting. Anyway, I had some customers etc and an hour or so later when I sat down to paint another coat I was delighted with the result. It was a deep glossy colour - just what I wanted! From that first application I got 2 days without a single chip to my beautiful coloured nails (oh and I used not top coat!).
I have used it a few times since and it has been just as good.

This morning I bought shade 272 - I have just pained my finger nails and I am very happy with the result.

This is a brand that I am definitely going to continue to buy - I think I am going to go for a bright orange next!

The entire range of products are available from the Barry M website!

Love the pink nails! Mine are green at the moment.

Thanks, they are still going strong, I have a very slight chipping at the edge of one or two nails, but it is a fab polish!
