Hello everyone! Eeeek – it’s been three whole weeks since my last post! I’ve obviously now broken my new year goal of posting at least once a week… oops! I’ve just started a new job temping, which always takes a little time to adjust to the new routine, especially as I’ve been working from home for 8 months and unemployed for a further month, lol. So that’s why I’ve been slacking on the blog front! In this time I have been very kindly sent the new Barry M Sunset Daylight Curing collection to swatch and review for you all, so today I am doing just that.
What are Daylight Curing nail paints? Barry M say they are “professional nails without the lamp”. So in theory they’re somewhere between normal nail polish and a UV soak-off gel system. The nail polish cures in daylight (and artificial light too, actually) and you remove it with normal nail polish remover, so in many ways it seems just like normal nail polish. The finish is somewhat like a gel polish though, and they are supposed to last up to 10 days. More on that later. There seems to be quite a trend for these ‘no UV’ nail polishes around at the moment!
FYI – these all have the new Barry M brush which is flat and rounded – I’ve put a picture below and you can also see it compared with the ‘old’ Barry M brush on this post.
