It's confetti time! Swatches and review of all 5 brand new Barry M Confetti polishes after the jump!
So who has been So who has been looking forward to these Confetti polishes!? I love it when Barry M makes the trends affordable! These polishes are mixed colours of bar glitter in a clear base and are similar to the Nails Inc. Feather collection and the Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat collection.
The formula on these, I'm glad to say, is great. The confetti pieces are quite densely packed and spread easily. I've only used one coat in all of my swatches, because I prefer to wear them sparsely, but if you prefer them thicker it's very easy to build up the coats. I did a quick example to show you:
You could even do more coats than that, if you wanted to. The glitter lies flat and doesn't need taming too much if you only use 1 or 2 coats, I've only used 1 layer of top coat in my swatches. Having said that, I wouldn't recommend going for full coverage without a base colour underneath! The best thing to do is pick a colour in the glitter, so for the above I'd choose a blue, and layer it up over that. Don't forget to give the bottles a really good shake before you use them!
On to the pictures...
Dolly Mixture is a mix of pale blue, yellow and peach confetti pieces and is similar to Nails Inc. Chester. I've layered 1 coat over Barry M Berry Ice Cream.
Liquorice is black and white pieces. I've layered one coat over Barry M Shocking Pink.
Marshmallow is pale baby pink and white pieces and is similar to Nails Inc. Cornwall. I layered one coat over Barry M Papaya Gelly.
Bubblegum is bright blue and white pieces. I layered one coat over Barry M Lemon Ice Cream, because I can't resist the combination of blue and yellow!
Sour Apple is aqua green and yellow pieces and is similar to Nails Inc. Brighton. I layered 1 coat over Barry M Greenberry Gelly. This is my favourite combination!
Bottle macro shots -
What do you think? I'm pleasantly pleased with them! I don't own any of the Nails Inc. Feather polishes so I can't compare formulas, but I can't imagine them being any better than these. Barry M is so reliable for keeping up with the trends and I'm always wondering what they'll release next. I'm also imagining new colour combinations for future Confetti! I'd love to see a bright purple and pink one, or any number of garish colours! :P
