Hello lovelies,

 

I've got another British polish review for you! Today it's Barry M Crush, a dark red matte from the Autumn Matte collection. The whole Matte collection consists of 5 shades and I have already shown you swatches of Barry M Caramel and Vanilla.

 

Crush is matte but slightly leaning towards satin finish; I was expecting a proper matte I must admit. Nevertheless it's a pretty shade and you can still play with the matte/glossy effect.

The formula was very well pigmented so all I needed were two thin coats. It dried fast and the application was smooth and streak-free. I would still advice you to work fast to avoid any patching even though I haven't experienced any. Because this polish is not worn with topcoat, leave it to dry and harden for longer than usual to avoid dents.

 

Barry M polishes are available at every Superdrug and Boots stores and at the official Barry M website.

Hello lovelies,

 

It will be a little longer post today because I want to show you swatches of Barry M Vanilla AND a simple reversed french manicure I did with it. This polish was also sent to me for review from Brandnation.

 

Barry M Vanilla - greige matte creme. This shade is sooo interesting! It's like pastel mauve mixed with grey and even better - it's matte finish. The formula was good to apply but thin coats were a bit patchy so I applied thicker coats. Two coats were enough for full coverage. This whole matte range needs a bit longer to dry and harden beause you can't use topcoat.

And as always, I've done sime nail art with the polish. I combined two Barry M Matte shades Vanilla and Crush in a simple reversed french manicure.
