I've decided to show you more of the UK brands. Barry M has wide range of nail polishes so I'll try to include Barry M swatches more often. Today I've got Mint Green shade which is supposed to be really close to Chanel Jade. Unfortunately I don't own the Chanel to show you a comparison. The colour is a light creme pastel green, quite cool shade.

Mint Green is quite sheer and it needed two very thick coats or three regular ones :( Not really good formula I would say...it was also quite runny and watery. When it dried the colour wasn't very shiny so I had to use a topcoat. Overally the shade is nice if you like Chanel Jade or greens but the formula is not one of the best. I didn't feel good in this shade as it was too pale and cold for me.

Rozhodla jsem se, ze vam ukazu vic britskych znacek. Barry M ma sirokou sklau odstinu laku, takze se pokusim zaradit do prispevku vice z teto znacky. Dnes tu mam Mint Green, ktery ma byt velmi blizky pribuzny Chanelu Jade. Bohuzel nemam Chanel, abych je porovnala :( Barva je pastelova zelena kremovka, docela dost studeny odstin.

Mint green je malo kryci, potreboval dve hodne silne vrstvy nebo tri normalni :( Rozhodne o tomhle laku nemuzu rict, ze by mel dobrou konzistenci...je take dost vodovy a ridky. Kdyz zaschnul, barva nebyla moc leskla, takze jsem musela pouzit nadlak. Celkove si myslim,ze pokud mate radi Chanel Jade a zelene odstiny obecne, tak je to pekna barvicka. Bohuzel ta konzistence neni nic moc :( Ja osobne jsem se v tomhle laku necitila dobre, protoze je na me moc svetly a studeny.

What Barielle says about the collection: "

Fend off the season’s chill with six new colours from Barielle’s Style In Argyle Autumn collection. With a rich colour palette to choose from and their signature ‘3-free’ formulation, this collection is inspired by stylish Argyle fashion colours. Formulated to provide nails with safe, healthy and long lasting glossy colour coverage, Shades by Barielle is free of formaldehyde,

tolune and dibutyl-phthalate.  It is also safe to use Barielle products

Professional tip from celebrity manicurist Pippa Hebden – ‘Creamy toned polish is the perfect compliment to any autumn wardrobe’.   To spice up your manicure and create an ombre finish, Pippa suggests mixing two to three drops of your favourite Shades polish into a clear top coat, polish, let the coat dry and then polish from the middle to the tip for that autumn foliage feeling."

As you may have noticed the polishes have a new elegant bottle design which will stay for ongoing collections. The Style in Argyle collection will be available from mid September and I am really looking forward to show you some swatches later :)
