I really like Barry M nail polishes because, in my opinion, they have a great quality for the price. This is why I am kinda excited about these new Foil Effect nail polishes in gold and silver.
You’ve probably heard a lot about Barry M’s Dusky Mauve which is a Chanel Paradoxal dupe. I’ve been wearing it last week so thought I’d share the photos with you.
I really like the Barry M nail paints and I think the quality is amazing for the price (£2.99)! I do plan to get a lot of these in the future. To tell the truth, if I want to save some money on a beauty related product – it is usually a nail polish. I don’t have that many expensive nail polishes, because I’d rather get a high end lipstick or mascara and save some money on a nail polish.
I like the quality of Dusky Mauve: it is opaque with the 2 coats, for me it stays on for 3 days and the shade is pretty.
Let’s be honest, a lot of cheap nail polishes are completely horrible but I do find Barry M nail pants great! And they are only £2.99, so you can try so many shades without spending a fortune.
And what affordable nail polishes do you like? If you want to save some money on a beauty product what do you choose?
I have to confess that my love for nail polishes in 2010 got so much stronger! I can’t say that I was a fan of nail polishes in the past. This is probably the only thing that changed since I’ve started my blog almost 2 years ago.
I’ve actually bought more nail polishes in the last year than in all the years before 2010. I am obviously not as obsessed as the nail polish bloggers who are also responsible for my new love, but for my standards I’ve got quite a lot of nail polishes and I plan to get even more in 2011.
I can’t say that I’ve tried all the brands on the market ( mostly because some are hard to get for me) but from what I’ve tried – the winners are…
Illamasqua Nail Varnish
These are (£13) amazing nail varnishes: they are opaque with only one coat and stay on for a long time. Plus the colours are so, so beautiful.
By the way, I am wearing the Alarm Nail Varnish as I am typing this.
Read me reviews here and
This week there was a special occasion, and I was wearing black dress with turquoise accessories and nail polish. I would normally wear red or crimson but this time I just wanted something different so I’ve chosen Barry M Turquoise.
I have to say that it’s an amazing nail polish for only £2.95. For me it stays on perfectly for 3 days and it’s opaque with 2 coats. But it looks fine even with 1 coat, depends on how you like it!
I can’t wait to wear this nail polish in summer although it is fine even in fall!
This week I am wearing Barry M nail paint in Berry Ice Cream. This is not the kind of polish that I would wear in Fall but I got it back in summer and never had a chance to wear it – so I gave it a go this week.
Berry Ice Cream is a beautiful pastel lilac which gives a perfect coverage with 2 coats and stays on for several days. This photo is made on the third day and, as you can see, it still looks perfect. Anyway, I think it’s a great product for only £2.95.
