New Barry M Classic Nail Paints - Nightshade, Ballerina and Vintage Violet Swatches and Review


Press Sample

Barry M are known for their amazing seasonal collections and their hugely popular Gelly range, but at the heart of the Barry M line are their Classic Nail Paints - the core collection of polishes that have been a familiar staple of Boots and Superdrug visits for as long as I can remember. The last addition to the core line was Berry Cosmo all the way back in September 2013, so I'm pleased to see some new additions for A/W 2014!

Nightshade, Ballerina and Vintage Violet are 3 creme shades that compliment each other beautifully. The formula of the Classic nail paint range never fails - I would say it's the absolute best creme formula of a budget brand polish you can get, it's smooth and glossy and a steal at only £2.99 a bottle. It's definitely better than some polishes I have that are double the price!

Nightshade is a blackened plum creme that looks almost completely black, but you'll be able to tell on the first coat that it's not! I used 2 coats for perfect coverage, plus top coat.

Ballerina is a beautifully soft, dusty pink creme. Perfect and supremely glossy in 2 coats.

Vintage Violet is a delicate violet creme. Such a gorgeous shade, this is my favourite! 2 coats

So very impressed with these shades, I am yet to be disappointed with the Classic nail paints. Cyan Blue is one of my all-time favourite creme polishes, and I think Vintage Violet may be hot on its heels!

Availability

- Available now in Boots, Superdrug and Barrym.com, priced £2.99 each.

  7. Wow, I'm impressed that Ballerina was a 2 coater. In my experience, the lighter Barry M shades are 3 coaters at least and still have bald patches when you look up close. Because of that, I swore off those sort of colours and vowed only to use the darker Barry M's but now I'm questioning myself!
