You may have already seen swatches of this new Barry M collection online as I’m a little late to the mark putting mine out there, but here we are, the new Silk Collection*!
A range of six beautifully retro matte pearlescent shades that are perfectly pastel and bang on trend. I didn’t think I was going to like these as much as I do, but I have to say I’ve fallen head over heels for truffle, meadow and heather – they’re just so so pretty! Although a bit of a bugger to paint for those of us used to slapping on a coat of Seche Vite and dashing out the door minutes after painting our nails the matte effect is lovely and really does create a silk effect when fully dry – you just have to be patient! And they are tricky to remove too, so prepare for a bit of soaking when it comes to changing colours.
Mist – Blue polishes are always a bit marmite for me and sadly I don’t adore this one. It will be good however for summer nail art projects, so it’s one to jeep hold of.
Blossom – This is a really pretty baby pink colour perfect for sweeping on for a quick and cute summer look. It also looks like it could be a good stamper…will report back on that one!
Heather – Such a pretty lilac polish, I love love love it. One I would happily wear on it’s own without an accent.
Truffle – This is my absolute favourite of the collection, right up my street. A creamy nude brown that reminds me of the perfect latte!
Meadow – A beautiful mint green that would make a lovely accent nail alongside something like Essie Mint Candy Apple!
Pearl – Are we still loving white polish? I certainly am! Pearl is a lovely, well, pearl colour and great as a base for studs and other nail art patterns
The silk collection is available to buy now in Superdrug, Boots and on the Barry M website HERE for £3.99 a bottle…what are you waiting for?
