Hello lovelies,

 

Dandelions are back! We've had some dandelions in our garden so I used them in today's pictures. I've used dandelion as a prop before in this review and the pictures are always so pretty!

 

Today I will show you two new Barry M limited edition polishes that are being introduced exclusively for Boots today!

Barry M Limited Edition Shades for Boots - Review & Swatches

 

Carousel - coral red with subtle gold shimmer. Pretty summery colour that I found quite flattering to my skin tone. The formula was truly excellent - it applied easily and two thin coats provided perfect coverage. Carousel dried fast and glossy but I still applied topcoat.

Bikini - periwinkle blue creme with lavender undertones. This was impossible shade o capture as my camera showed it very blue. I've edited the colour a bit but it still looks very blue. The true colour is leaning towards lavender a bit more. The formula was slightly runny but still manageable and 2 thicker coats provided good coverage. I've applied topcoat.

These are lovely additions to my Barry M collection as I don't have many similar shades.

 

As I've mentioned previously, these two limited edition shades are launching in Boots today (11th June 2014) so you should be able to find them on your next trip :) The full retail price is £3.99 but you might often find discounts of 3 for 2 offers.

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie x

Miami - medium flamingo pink. Miami is not as bright as the other shades in this collection but it's still very summery. I've applied two thicker coats to get full coverage.

Rhossili - magenta shade. It might look a bit more blue-based in the pictures but it's a beautiful magenta colour. It applied well and the pigmentation was good too. Two coats were enough for perfect coverage.

Copacabana - bright tomato red. The formula was nice to apply and highly pigmented so I'd advise to double-up on base coat to prevent staining. I needed two regular coats for full coverage.

Waikiki - light lime green? yellow green? It's certainly quite a unique shade. It applied well but the pigmentation was slightly lower so I've applied two thick coats or three thin coats would do too.

Cancun - bright teal with strong green undertones. Cancun looks a bit too blue in my pictures but it just wasn't possible to capture the true colour. Definitely expect more green-ish teal. It applied well and I needed two regular coats for full coverage.

Malibu - bright blue. Malibu is one of my favourite colours from this collection. It's bold, it's gorgeous and well-pigmented. I've applied two regular coats.

Barry M is also releasing a Matte Topcoat. As you can see in the pictures above, I have applied the Matte Topcoat to each polish to show you the effect. The Matte Topcoat creates nice matte finish without any white spots.

It is clear to me that the finish of all the polish is not very matte but rather satin or rubbery so if you want truly matte finish apply the Matte Topcoat. You can also have them in nice and glossy finish, just use topcoat.

 

Overall, I love the colours and my favourites are Malibu, Rhosilli and the crazy Waikiki. I would have loved them even more if the finish would be properly matte but I don't mind that much to be honest.

 

This collection is available now at Superdrug, and from 11th June at Boots and on Barry M website.
