Barry M Glitterati Swatches & Review

Tuesday, 30 September 2014

Press Sample

So today I have the very sparkly, Glitterati collection from Barry M for you, which was release last week on the 24th September. Ever since I saw this 6 piece in the A/W 2014 Look Book I have been itching to get my hands on it. Barry M do glitter polishes incredibly well and these are no exception.

They do remind me a little of Models Own Velvet Goth collection in their finish, however these are shearer which means they can be layered over other colours to create a stunning finish. They also have softer colours. Each polish contains a combination of iridescent & holographic glitters in a coloured jelly base. I have swatched these over a solid base colour which is as similar as possible to the jelly base of these nail paints. They dry to a semi matte finish, which is how I left it for the photos. However they also look incredible with a glossy topcoat.

Starlet has a bright pink coloured jelly base. I wore 1 coat over Barry M Grapefruit, no topcoat.

Overall I adore these glitters. They shimmer like nothing else Barry M has released and I'm not sure how we ever did without them. My favourite is Fashion Icon, an easy decision but to be honest I need them all in my life!

You can buy these now from Superdrug, or from Boots (as of the 1st October) for £3.99.

Which is your fave? How do you wear your Glitterati's?

  2. Thank you! This is just what I was needing, they all look so gorgeous and the pictures on the barry m website do the polish no justice just inside a bottle
