Manicure Monday #3

I didn’t do a Manicure Monday post last week so this is the two weeks combined. I did paint my nails with all three of these colours but silly me forgot to take a picture of the purple; I’ve included it anyway as it’s too nice not to! I took the photos for this post this morning then realised they were all BarryM Nail Paints; anyone that knows me though or reads my blog often will know how much of a BarryM addict I am. I currently have (I think) 79 colours.
The three colours used from Left to Right are ‘Fashion Icon’, ‘Denim’ and ‘Countess’. These are all BarryM Nail Paints priced from £2.99-£3.99 (you can buy them here).


My nails are in an awful condition at the moment, they seem to have all broken off, but I’ve been using Orly ‘Tough Cookie’ under all my polishes to try and get the strength back in them. I love this ‘Denim’ polish, it’s probably one of my all time favourites from BarryM as it goes with just about ANY outfit!



This second one (sorry about the phone photo!) is another one of my favourites, it’s from their Royal Textured Glitter Collection in ‘Countess’; I’m pretty sure this photo was after just one coat too. The texture takes some getting used to, I’d describe it as cement like I suppose but it stays so well whatever you do. It feels like you couldn’t chip it if you tried (I didn’t try). Although it looks like it would be a nightmare to get off (I was dreading it) it was really easy, I just soaked the polish with nail polish remover on a cotton pad for about 20 seconds and it came off straight away.
The third polish (on the left in the first photo) is one of my newest from BarryM and is from their ‘Glitterati’ Collection that I am totally in love with. I’ve got the ‘Socialite’ and ‘Catwalk Queen’ but I think I’m going to buy the others on the weekend. I’ve only got 3 more to buy so here’s to hoping they’re 3 for 2!
What is your favourite nail polish collection or brand?

      Thank you. The texture of them is amazing too. I'd recommend trying their textured glitter range.
