Barry M Winter Collection

This winter Barry M released 3 new nail paints. Ballerina, Vintage Violet and Nightshade. I started getting into nail polish when Barry M released their Gelly range and therefore never really looked at the regular nail paints before. What a mistake.... their nail paints are just as amazing, creamy and pigmented as the gelly range. They only cost £2.99 so super affordable and Barry M is ALWAYS on sale either in Boots or Superdrug.

First up is Ballerina. This is a dusty nude leaning pink.. if that makes sense? I think it's a great shade for the winter. It's still a pop of colour but nothing too in your face.

The swatch is only 1 coat. ONE COAT! Pretty impressive for this type of shade. No topcoat.

The second colour is Vintage Violet, it's a very dusty grey toned yet vibrant purple. I don't own anything like this! I have a few dusty grey toned purples, but this was is still quite warm at the same time.

I used 2 coats and no top coat. It's almost as glossy as the gelly range!

The final colour is Nightshade. This is a super super dark purple. So dark that it's pretty much just a straight up black.

Again I used 2 coats for the swatch and no top coat. It's so glossy! The gloss does fade very quickly so I would recommend using a top coat anyway.

What do you think of the new colours? I'm pleasantly surprised and will definitely pay more attention to the regular nail paints from now on!
