Barry M Swatches - Part 2

September 20, 2012



Mint Green is a green almondy creme. It's formula is pretty thin and you will probably need 3 coats for full coverage. I used 2 coats for these photos but clearly  you can see through it. 
This one was a bit of a disappointment to me - the color wasn't what I expected at all, it's not that minty in my eyes, and the thin formula isn't that great. I mean, I already use so many different coats when I do my nails so adding another one is just too much...

Indigo is a gorgeous dark blue. I couldn't decide if it's creme or kind of a jelly? In any case I love it! I needed 2 coats for this perfect result. The formula is great and the color is fantastic. I don't know why I haven't used this one by now. I purchased it when I planned to do navy nails but haven't done them eventually. Guess this mani should come soon :)

Aqua Glitter is a turquoise dense glitter in two sizes and a clear base. It's great as a top coat or on it's own. Actually I was thinking about glitter gradient when I bought this one, but it's quite great on it's own. I used 3 coats for these pictures. Since no one likes the glitter removal I haven't used it for a full mani yet but I'm waiting for my peel off base coat to give it a try.

Black Multi-Glitter is a black jelly/creme with silver holo glitters. I have to admit that I was a bit disappointed about this one as well. The holo is not so holo most of the time, and finish on the nails is really bumpy - but that can be solved with few (not one I'm sure) generous Poshe top coats. The formula was good though. For these photos I used 2 coats.

  4. The aqua glitter is very nice - I just took it off after layering over a green (for a little contrast)) Barry M's are generally great quality and some can be stamping polishes!

  5. The mint green one looks like For Audrey a little bit! The Black Multi-Glitter is stunning though! Is it super glittery in real life?

    1. Mint green is more of green and not teal as For Audrey. I have a dupe of For Audrey (I need a refresh mint - WnW) and they are not similar.
      Black Multi-Glitter is not as glittery and most of the time you can't really see to holo sparkle so I was pretty disappointed.

  6. אחותי, נהיית ממש פולישהוליקית! :-) אני צריכה פעם להבין איך אתן מצלמות בכל פעם את האצבעות באותה זווית בדיוק...

    גם אני התאכזבתי מהגוון של Mint Green... קיוויתי למשהו יותר תכלכל ו"מנטי". בתמונה דווקא לא רואים מבעד ללק (ובטח שלא בבירור) אבל אני מאמינה לך.

    Aqua Glitter חמוד לאללה, מזכיר לי משהו דומה של סאלי הנסן. מכיוון שכבר קניתי את Blue Mosaic של רבלון (ויש לי גם כוכבים תכולים של טופ ביוטי) אני לא קונה יותר נצנצים בגוון הזה, נראה לי שכיסיתי את הפינה הזו. :-)

    תתחדשי על כל הלקים!

    1. חח זה תמיד מה שאני חושבת כשאני מסתכלת בסווצ'ים של בלוגים מפורסמים :)
      תודה על המחמאה! האמת שהכי פשוט לצלם הרבה תמונות בזווית דומה ומה שיוצא הכי דומה נבחר :) אין לי ממש תיאוריה, אי אפשר להגיד ממש שכל הסווצ'ים שלי והצילומים זהים :) אבל אני מנסה.
      אני אוהבת את הלקים של BARRY M ובמיוחד את העובדה שהם די זולים וזמינים אונליין, אבל אני חושבת שקניתי לי מספיק מהם לבנתיים... לא נשארו עוד צבעים מסקרנים או כאלו שאין לי באוסף מחברות אחרות..
      עכשיו עוברים ל-essie! :) חח

  7. They are all lovely! The Mint Green is yummy and the black is stunning in the bokeh pic. Shame it wasn't like that irl.
