If you have read my previous nail posts, you will know that I love red nail varnishes. But sometimes change is good. So I set myself a challenge to try out different nail varnish colours that I would not normally go for. This week I decided to wear "Blackberry" by Barry M. It is exactly as the name suggests; a deep dark purple shade. I mean this shade is completely on the opposite spectrum of what I usually go for. I always had this thing in my head that dark polishes would not suit my skin tone, but I was pleasantly surprised. It looked nice.
This nail varnish is part of their "Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint" range. It is a very rich polish and can achieve a great colour with just one coat. However I used two coats in the pictures below. The varnish has a great shine to it so you do not need a top coat (I didn't use a top coat in the pictures). My nails had an extra glossy shine to them and the varnish did dry relatively quickly. My slight disappointment was that it started to chip after three days.Which is far shorter than any of their other varnishes I've tried in the past.
This nail paint retails at £3.99 which is a very good price! At that price, I think it is definitely good value for money.
What do you think of the colour? Have you tried Barry M nail paints before?
Thanks for reading!
