p..p..p...pick up a peach

Taken indoors in the light

Hey all,

It's late and I was debating doing some study, going to bed or doing a little blog post. I feel this is going to be my mind frame for the next while (hopefully a long while)
Anyway for your eyes today I have a brand that is fairly commonly known in Ireland and the UK but I don't think you can really get it abroad (correct me if I am wrong though).
I did have another post scheduled but I didn't have a picture of the bottle. I think it's nice to include a bottle picture in case ye want to buy it and don't want to go on name alone.
It's the brand Barry M and the polish is called Peach melba. I bought this a good year ago and after relentlessly googling swatches online. I took it home, swatched it on my own hand...and I hated it! pure hatred!! I repeated this like 3 times until I tried again the last day just so it would no longer be an untried polish and...I love it!!!!

Barry M Peach Melba
This was 1 base coat of stargazer, 3 coats of Barry M peach melba and 1 coat of essence quickdry top coat.

I needed 3 coats because I hate visible nail line. Hate it with a capital H. It dried fairly quickly though so I wouldn't worry about that.

I would really recommend this if you can get it. I have 4 other Barry M colours and I love them so much.

There are a lot of pictures here because I really want to show you how pretty this polish is. Like the essence polish I would say if you have shorter nails you could get away with 2 coats no bother.

Taken in natural light
This lasted 5 days without chipping (I think I chipped it through scratching at it though haha)
Barry M are dear enough,I think anyway, as I bought this for €4.50. When I first bought it I have to say I was so disappointed that I had wasted so much money on this. This was my first Barry m nail varnish. I never really trusted their formula after reading other bloggers comments but I really wanted this so I "splashed out" haha.
As I said I do really love it now (not as much as my other Barry m's but you'll hopefully see why when I post their swatches).

Taken in sunlight 
 In the pictures you can obviously see a gorgeous peachy colour. It does have a hint of pink in it in certain lights.
The bottles are fairly big at 10ml each which is great.
The prices have since gone up to around €4.79 or something like that. I will try and find out the exact price for my next posts.

What do ye all think? Do any of ye have this polish?
I really do love this brand now and I would like to try more of their colours but I can't REALLY spend that much on one polish and buy loads at the same time. I do highly recommend the brand though.

That's all for now. Sorry for the long post but I like to be informative ( and I really don't want to sleep yet)

Name of the bottle (it's on the bottom which is a tad annoying)
