Barry M Christmas 2014 Limited Edition Nail Paints

Wednesday, 1 October 2014

Press Sample

Merry Christmas ... uh what?
Although it is only the 1st October, many shops have had their Christmas stock out for a few weeks and now we have the first of Barry M's beautiful 5 Christmas Limited Editions for 2014. I have to admit that the change in season usually signals the start of my Christmas countdown, but this year we have been experiencing a rather warm autumn so I am not quite 'there' yet. However once the chilly, crisp days start rolling in, I am so going to start my Christmas shopping!

Barry M have released 2 exclusive Limited Edition nail paints for Boots. These are the first Barry M nail paints that contain star glitter and I love them! They have also named them with a starry twist which is so fun of Barry M. I like that they have started taking a few more risks with their naming, however I would have like them to be more Christmassy! ... I know, I'm never happy :)


Moonlight is a gorgeous glittery mix of silver, gold & magenta. There are the odd shaped magenta pieces that appeared in Atlantis (see swatch here), lots of different sized silver/holo hex shaped glitters, silver bar glitter, large gold hex glitter and silver/holo stars.

For this swatch I used 1 coat over Barry M Orchid (see new Silk Swatches here). This polish has a great glitter pay off and although the stars are big, they come out of the bottle easily. I did place a couple onto the nail but only so I had an even spread.

I also added a matte topcoat as I love glitter with a matte topcoat.

Starlight is even more beautiful with the perfect mix of silver & gold holo glitters. It looks almost pastel-like because of the strong holo-ness! There are micro and large silver/holo hex glitter, large gold/holo hex glitter and silver/holo star glitters. WOW!

Again I used 1 coat over Barry M Orchid from the new Silks. I placed a couple of stars but that was only because I was being picky again.
