Hello lovelies,

 

Have you seen all the new polishes Barry M is releasing? Oh so many prettion! I've written about them in this post. I've already swatched the whole Glitterati collection which is what today's post is all about.

 

Glitterati collection consists of six glitter shades with some holographic glitter thrown into it. They are very sparkly and fun and even though the colours are more suitable for summer I still like them!

Starlet - hot magenta pink jelly full of glitter particles. Some of them have holographic effect and are tinted by the jelly base. I think this is more of a summer shade but hey - it's glitter! I've applied two thicker coats and topcoat for the pictures. It dried little gritty so topcoat was necessary.

Socialite - blue-based purple jelly base full of glitter. The glitter is mix of holographic and regular glitter in different colours creating crushed jewel-like mix. I needed two thicker coats for full coverage and topcoat to smooth out the surface.

Catwalk Queen - Aqua green base full of glitter mix. This is definitely a summer shade, it's like a tropical sea, so very pretty! I've applied two thicker coats as it's a bit sheerer.

VIP - bright blue jelly base full of glitter mix. Another very bright and gorgeous colour! I've applied two thicker coats and topcoat. It applied well but the formula was a bit thicker.

Fashion Icon - grape purple with slight colour shift to blue. This is an interesting colour. It mostly looks like dark purple but sometimes you can see a lot of electric blue in it. It is again jam packed full of glitter. I've applied two regular coats and topcoat, this shade is better pigmented than some previous ones.

Rockstar - charcoal base full of glitter mix. I don't think any rockstar would be ashamed to wear this super sparkly shade! Rockstar reminds me of a night sky full of stars :) I'm wearing two regular coats and topcoat.

The whole collection is very beautiful and super sparkly and my absolute favourites are Catwalk Queen, Rockstar and Fashion Icon. All polishes had the same formula - they applied well but more I've used the polish the thicker the formula got. I could see it mostly at the bottle neck so I think some thinner will be needed in the future. Otherwise they dried fast and only a bit gritty so topcoat sorted it out. Very nice collection!

 

Barry M Glitterati collection is available at Barry M website, in Superdrug and Boots. Launching in Superdrug 24th September and in Boots 1st October.

Hello lovelies,

I've prepared a simple chevron manicure that I paired up with my favourite red blazer and I really like the result! First, let's check out the pictures...

I have used OPI Red Hot Rio (Brazil collection), a yummy jelly-ish red and then I've painted the chevrons using small brush and OPI 4 In The Morning from the Gwen Stefani collection.

 

As I've mentioned above, I've finished the look with my favourite red blazer by KIOMI and Pieces necklace from BANK Fashion. Loving this piece!

 

Hope you've enjoyed today's post and see you tomorrow! Lucie x
