Aside from all of the political news of recent, it's officially summer now and I can't wait to introduce these babies to you! I ordered all four of these Barry M rose coloured summer shades
I first have to apologise for Pink Lemonade having no label in my photographs! I experienced the frustration of being sent the most scratched and damaged bottles from ordering them online and ended up removing the label as it was scratched beyond recognition. Most of the polishes also chipped somewhat, though I have tried to avoid exposing this in my photos.
Anyone else experienced this? The formula inside is fine but I'm making mental notes to purchase in store in future. They are all lovely for accentuating a tan and the names sound so edible! From left to right, we have Butterscotch Sundae, an ecru caramel beige, Pink Lemonade, a strawberry milk pink with a vintage vibe, Acai Smoothie, a darker lilac pink, and Cream Soda, a milky coconut off white. I used the 2 for £5 offer online, but they retail at £3.99 each.
I've been so impressed with the formula of these! They are so likeable, uber shiny and glossy and look so pretty on the nails, especially juxtaposed with tan skin. They are all pretty easy to apply, although the lighter shades can be streaky and it can be tricky to apply multiple even coats without the polish drying all clumpy and smudgy. My favourite to apply is Acai Smoothie as it instantly goes on so lovely, glossy and opaque and barely needs another coat.
All of the shades seem to have equal longevity and lasted about three to four days before beginning to chip. This only gave me an excuse to try out multiple colour combinations haha!
I'd been growing out my nails specially so it was so nice to treat them to some strawberry ice cream shades! I hope you're not too hurt by the news of the EU results, I'm not sure what to think yet but I'm certain we can pull together in this new age and make it great ♡ I also have a little life update and travel diaries coming soon! Have you tried Barry M polishes?
