Hello lovelies,

 

Another new release from Barry M that I'll show you is Molten Metal! This mini collection consists of four metallic foil finish polishes in precious metal colours.

 

"Molten Metals give your nails show-stopping style and an instant luxe look. Each of the four chrome effect shades have a mirror-shine foil finish that will glisten for days. Metallic nails are big news for 2016, try one coat for a sheer finish or build up for a stronger look."

 

This collection features the flat tapered and rounded brush I like and I hope they will keep using it in their future collections.

Gold Digger - pale gold metallic foil. This gold is rather cool-toned so it might not flatter everyone but look at that sparkly finish! First coat was a bit sheer but second coat made is fully opaque. I'm not wearing top coat in the photos either.

Bronze Bae - bronze metallic foil shade. Bronze Bae is quite unusual shade with gold undertones. I'm wearing two coats and no topcoat, the polish dried fast and smooth.

Copper Mine - copper metallic foil shade. Another unusual shade! Copper Mine is like darker and warmer version of Bronze Bae. I've applied 2 coats and no topcoat.

Silver Lining - dark silver metallic foil shade. I'm a bit undecided about his shade. It's pretty and sparkly but it's not that unique. I think I might have 2 or 3 very similar shades in my collection. I'm wearing two thicker coats because it has slightly thinner formula so you might want to apply three thin coats.

All of the polishes had pretty much the same formula - they applied very easily and dried fast. The formula was a bit thinner but I managed to get away with two coats for each colour. My favourite shade is Copper Mine because it's not a colour I would come across that often and I think it will flatter most people. Also, all of the polishes are super sparkly and have mix of different-coloured particles in them. Overall, this collection is a very nice alternative to your regular bright and neon colours for Summer :) Which shade is your favourite?

 

Barry M Molten Metal collection is available at barrym.com, in Superdrug and Boots stores and their websites. And have you seen my swatches of another Summer release - Lolly Gloss collection?

Hello lovelies,

It's nail art time! This time I wanted to do something really simple but elegant so I chose that classic look of ruffian manicure. What is not classic are the colours I picked. Bronze and copper colours are really 'IN' right now and All That Jazz Living In Luxury ticks all the boxes for me. And it wouldn't be a ruffian design without another, contrasting colour. I picked blue-green Own It also from All That Jazz.

I start with two coats of Own It - paint whole nail and as close to the cuticle as you can. Once the polish is dry apply Living in Luxury in the same way only don't push the polish as much towards the cuticle and leave a bit of Own It peaking out. I think I've left around 1-1,5 millimetres.
Topcoat and you're done!

 

Own It reviewed here, Living In Luxury reviewed here. I found an old bead necklace from Primark that I've had forever that went quite well with the manicure ;) What do you think?

 

All That Jazz polishes are available at Nail Harmony UK website and at All That Jazz UK website (turn your sound down, they have a loud video on home page that every time almost gives me cardiac arrest...thank me later lol ;)

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie x
