Barry M Spring 2015 Launches Preview

Yesterday, I went down to London for a preview of the Spring 2015 launches from Barry M! All the details on the new products ahead (swatches will arrive soon) plus a mini photo report of the day!

I met up with Hannah (Polly Polish) in Bill's, where she was waiting for me with a glass of Prosecco and a bunch of flowers! She is completely wonderful! Alice (One Nail To Rule Them All) was supposed to be joining us but got snowed in and couldn't make it :( it was great to see plenty of other bloggers there too!

The preview event was held at All Star Lanes, a 1950's style bowling alley which I fell in love with (I'm obsessed with 1950's style anything) and although the lighting wasn't great for photography, it was such a fun place to hold an event! The room we were in had a couple of bowling lanes plus a bar (exactly what you need when bowling) and there was a competition going on to see who could bowl the fastest ball...I couldn't take part due to my silly back problems, but last I heard Hannah was in the lead!

The Barry M team treated us all to delicious food and drinks (I'm drooling again looking at this picture)

Metta from Nails By Mets was there offering manicures using some of the new products

It was a really nice afternoon and everyone at Barry M was super friendly and welcoming. It's so nice to finally meet and chat to people you've been talking to via email for a long time! What I love about them is it's immediately clear how much they all care about the brand, everybody is really enthusiastic and proud of the products and that makes me love the brand even more myself. We even got to meet Dean, the son of Barry himself, and he's so funny and lovely! I also heard a few good things about upcoming Summer products... ;)

Ok, on to the shiny new things! There's 3 brand new Gellies in beautiful spring shades; Fondant, Sky Blue and Cotton. Cotton is slightly off white (because I know you're wondering) but whiter than Coconut.

Launching in Superdrug on 11th February and Boots on 18th February, £3.99 each

There is also a brand new range called Speedy Quick Dry, launching with 9 spring shades and fun, racing flag lids! They all have racing inspired names too, such as Eat My Dust and Full Throttle. I do love a theme ;) Also, this range has flat brushes, which I'm really happy about!
