Coconut Infusion is a new range of nail polish from Barry M, with a new formula consisting of coconut oil and coconut water which promises to deliver hydrated and nourished nails. The line has launched with 9 shades for Spring/Summer which I have to show you today.
I'm intrigued by a polish containing coconut oil because I'm a big fan of it (I put it on anything and everything) but unfortunately as a blogger I rarely wear a polish long enough to test it to its full potential. I can tell you though that the formula of these polishes is amazing - and let's be honest, that's all most of us care about. It's smooth and self-levelling and every one was perfect in two coats (even the lighter colours, which is a pleasant surprise)
In comparison to the Gelly line that we all love so much, they're definitely a lot creamier with a thinner formula. They're more similar to the Quick Dry range but with a better formula - they also dry really fast. If you're interested in seeing comparisons to other Barry M colours, I'd suggest checking out this post by One Nail To Rule Them All. Alice did a great job comparing!
Skinny Dip is a nude beige. Hard to believe this was only 2 coats! I haven't used top coat in any swatches so you can see how shiny they are.
Laguna is a cornflower blue. 2 coats
Starfish is a light tan. 2 coats
Flamingo is a peachy orange. 2 coats
Tiki Hut is a dark tan. 2 coats
Sunkissed is a medium tan, somewhere in between Starfish and Tiki Hut. 2 coats
Bikini is a minty green. 2 coats
Aloha is a hot pink. 2 coats
Surfboard is a pale lilac with pink tones. 2 coats
I'm so pleased with the formula of this line, I encourage you to try them yourself! The only niggle I have is that there seems to be a lot of browns for one release, however you have a better chance of finding one to suit your skin tone, I suppose. Let me know what you think!
My picks: Surfboard, Bikini, Skinny Dip, Flamingo
