Nailed It In Matte | Barry M Summer 2014 Releases

Roll up roll up for the first of a two part blog series jam packed full of new Barry M releases! Today we’re taking a look at the new Barry M Summer 2014 Matte and Limited Edition Nail Polish shades! Just when you thought they’d run out of colours Barry does it again with a gorgeous collection of new season colours with the ever-coveted matte finish and his very own matte topcoat to boot. I’ve been waiting for Barry M to bring out a matte topcoat to rival the more expensive bottles on our shelves and they haven’t disappointed, but first let’s take a look at the matte polishes for the new season:

(From Left to Right)

Waikiki – a bright lime green I thought I’d hate but it really grew on me when it was on however it’s certainly not a shade for the faint hearted!

Cancun – a beautiful holiday teal green shade, perfect for round the pool with a gold accent nail or two

Malibu – a lovely just lighter than royal blue, not my favourite shade but a good one for blue lovers to collect

Rhossili – I think this beautiful magenta shade is my favourite of the bunch that could carry right through to autumn winter too

Miami – perfect for tans this is a fantastic holiday shade for you girly girls out there who want to stand out

Copacabana – a classic slightly orange tinted red that looks quite stunning on tanned fingers.

It’s a great collection and perfect for you matte polish lovers out there who are looking for some bright shades to rock this summer. They all dry with a semi-matte finish which can be emphasised with the clear matte top coatbut don’t forget you can turn each of these shades into normal polishes with a glossy top coat – maybe try painting one onto just half of the nail for an interesting and easy matter/gloss look!

Barry M have also released four limited edition shades for the summer with the most adorable lids –  two for Boots and two for Superdrug!

Limited Edition Polishes:

For Superdrug:

Seaside – a shimmery pearlescent medium blue

Promenade – a shimmery pearlescent bright pink

For Boots:

Carousel – a lovely coral orange peach with very subtle gold shimmer

Bikini – a gorgeous grey purple blue with a strong colour payoff

I much prefer the Boots shades purely because I’m not a shimmer polish girl and both the coral and the purple are beautiful colours that are perfect for long summer days! All apply nicely with the standard Barry M polish finish and won’t break the bank either at under a bottle.

You can find all of Barry M’s nail paints including these new season beauties on their website HERE starting at just £2.99!
