Barry M AW16 Limited Edition Shades

Sunday, 9 October 2016

PR Sample
Sunday, oh how I love you. I love the weekend and my long lie ins, long hot baths and cosy days spent snuggled up on the sofa watching tv. I've also managed to do some swatching in amongst all the r&r, after all I did promise the other day to swatch all the polishes shown in this post (here), no mean feat when you think back to last month (I mean, a sloth could have done more swatching than I did).

So today I have the first of many Barry M nail paint posts I'm sure to show you this month. Back in August I was lucky enough to attend the AW16 product launch (see my post on that day here).

The goodie bag they sent us home with contained a host of stunning products, however it was void of polish. As Barry M's self proclaimed number one nail paint fan, you can imagine how eagerly I have been watching the post every week since for their arrival, and finally that blessed day came last Friday.

As soon as these polishes dropped through my door, I knew I would have to try the limited edition colours first, I was literally drawn in like a magpie to that sparkle!

Superdrug Limited Editions

Nutcracker is the most amazing vibrant magenta metallic polish. This was perfect in 2 coats and I didn't need a topcoat.

Twinkle Twinkle is a gorgeous rose gold metallic. As rose gold has been the blogger's colour of choice for the last couple of years, it's lovely to see it in nail polish form. The formula is lovely and I only needed 2 coats, no topcoat.

Boots Limited Editions

Snowflake is a bright silver metallic. It has a slightly thinner formula than the others and needed 3 thin coats for full coverage, no topcoat.

Enchanted is the most stunning warm hot chocolate with flecks of gold and purple. This colour is so complex and is perfect for this time of year. Again the formula was lovely and I only needed 2 coats.

It's honestly too difficult to pick a favourite so I'm not going to. If you're interested in getting these shades you can pop into the respective stores nationwide or grab them online at Superdrug and Boots, priced at £3.99 each.

Let me know your thoughts on these colours. I'm planning on doing some comparisons posts of these and the older limited editions next month too, but let me know if there's a particular colour you'd like to see a comparison off.

Pop back in a couple of days for a review of Barry M's new Gelly and topcoat.

  1. My Boots doesn't have the silver one, but I managed to get the other three today.

    Lovely swatches as usual!

    1. I hope you get it, it's such a gorgeous colour. What's your fave so far? Thank you, you're too kind x

    2. Twinkle Twinkle is so pretty, and the most unique for my collection. Enchanted is lovely, but I have several fairly similar ones.

    3. Yes I agree that Enchanted & Snowflake are very standard but they're so pretty & Barry M make great metallic foils. Twinkle twinkle is amazing. I'm not surprised you love it xx

  2. I think I'll be picking up Twinkle Twinkle and Enchanted. Usually either both Boots or both Superdrug shades grab my attention but this time it appears my loyalty is divided LOL Beaut swatches as always Vicky!

    1. I honestly can't tell you how gorgeous Nutcracker is, it's such a stunning polish. The others you've mentioned are def gorgeous, you'll love them xx

  3. Looking forward to try Twinkle Twinkle myself!!! It would have been pretty to see the difference with the Matte topcoat. Thanks for this review, it is very useful!!!

    1. Ooh that's such a gorgeous colour, you'll love it. A matte topcoat? I don't usually wear Metallica matte, the idea is the metallic is the finish. However I'm curious now. I'll have to try it out xx
