Let me just start by saying I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS NAIL PAINT!

Barry M Nail Paint in 303 Bright Purple

I love nail varnish, I love brights and I love purple, so it seemed only natural to try this bargainous £2.99 nail paint by Barry M and I wasn’t disappointed!  The varnish applies like a dream – it glides on effortlessly as the longer lid is easy to handle.  After two coats, the coverage is perfectly even and bold, with no streaks at all.  I absolutely adore the vibrant shade; it’s a pinky purple that reminds me of rich plums and it has a fantastic jelly finish that really stands out.

These swatches were photographed in daylight without a flash and the pink hues really pop, but inside the house the varnish looks a deeper shade of violet which is just as gorgeous.

My only quibble is that I had to wait a while for the varnish to dry fully.  It stayed tacky for a good 5 minutes until I added a clear top coat which dried quickly, but it was well worth the wait.  I really can’t get enough of this nail paint and I hope to try more Barry M colours in the not too distant future, so if you’re a Barry M fan please keep checking back!
