So I know it's summer time and a lot of you wouldn't wear darker polishes but I'm "crazy".I'm not fond of the whole trend thing that goes on in the blogging world. If you like a colour just wear it :) As long as you feel good wearing it then ignore what everyone else says.
Anyway! I decided to go with Barry M Raspberry.
I am a big fan of Barry M nail polishes. I wanted this polish for ages but at €4.79 a pop they are dear enough compared to Essence and Catrice. Every time I went in specifically to buy it, it was sold out :( I can't really blame them though because it is such a gorgeous polish and really unique to my collection :) I finally got it into my possession a couple of months ago and I kept putting off wearing it. No idea why to be honest. Probably because I was big into nail art back then :P
Seeing as my nails are fairly long at the moment and Barry M usually need at least 2 coats for me I was gearing up for a three coater but this was opaque in one coat!! ONE!! How frickin' amazing is that? I threw on another just to be sure.
This has such a squishy look to it especially at night. I added on a layer of Essence quick dry topcoat just to enhance the glossy squishy-ness :P
Application was so smooth and easy. I only really had clean up on my right hand but that's normal in fairness :P
I only have like 5 Barry M polishes at the moment but I have my eye on a couple more. I am in love with their pastel collection I have peach melba and berry ice cream from the collection and I hope to get blueberry ice cream and Strawberry ice cream. The lemon one is nice but I prefer Models own Lemon meringue.
Raspberry wear really well with minimal tip wear after days. No chips which is always the case with the Barry M polishes that I have tried.
Each bottle holds 10ml of polish which really goes a long way. A must have polish for all occassions I think :D
I got a little bored at the end and just as I was about to take it off I decided to do roses on it. That didn't work :P I need to practice it a fair bit! But here's how it looked before my failed attempt:
What's your favourite Barry M nail polish?
