Barry M: Silks

17 February 2014

I have been very naughty this month.  Forgetting about my spending ban, I have splurged on polish like money is running out of fashion.

Like the hypergels, I had no intention of buying these.  I thought they were okay, but pearlescent type polishes were definitely not for me - they didn't suit me.  Then I saw them on 3 for 2 in Tescos and greedily scooped them up.

The colours I bought were Heather, Meadow and Pearl.
As per any other Barry M polish - these were lovely to apply.  They were nice and creamy and applied without being smeary.  I applied two coats in my swatches but I feel like I could have done with another coat - just to get a deeper colour.

They're easy to clean up and, unlike other Barry M polishes, they don't stain (though the light colour helps).

One niggle I do have, and you'll read more about this in a future blog post, is that they're not very good for nail art.  I'll just leave that there...

Here are my swatches.





  1. These swatches look great! I love the look of Meadow! :)

  2. I really like these, however, when I went into superdrug to see them I wasn't too impressed. They look horrible in the bottle...I guess I just found out I really don't like silk polishes. Although I might buy the green one just to test it :) lovely swatches as always xx

  3. Oooh these look pretty on you, especially the green and the pink! But tut-tut for breaking the monthly polish budget ;-) xx


I always look forward to your lovely messages and comments and always try to reply! :-)
