Barry M has released five new nail paints in shades Denim, Copper, Aqua, Black Multi-Glitter and Silvery Lilac. Copper is a beautiful rusty bronze foil polish, which seems to be a bit of a colour-shifter! In some lights it’s a lovely golden-bronze, in others it’s a distinctly coppery-brown colour and sometimes you even get hints of green and pink!
This is a very pretty blend of what seems to be pink and gold shimmer particles/microglitter in a murky brown base colour. This mixture of colours seems to be responsible for the colour-shifting, I can’t work out whether there is more gold than pink or vice versa, but they certainly pull the colour one way or the other depending on the light. I initially thought Copper might be a close match for OPI Warm & Fozzie, but looking at it, Warm & Fozzie seems a lot darker brown than Copper. So if you liked Warm & Fozzie but thought it was too dark for you, Copper will be perfect!
The photos all show 3 coats of Copper. As can be the case with some foils, the polish pulled some of the coloured shimmer along the nail leaving bald patches, which were fully covered by the 3rd coat. In terms of drying time, Copper dried relatively quickly. It was nice and shiny without topcoat – I always feel that topcoat doesn’t really ‘gel’ with foils, I did slick a quick coat on for the photos though as I had sheetmarks where I applied it right before bed!
What do you guys think of Copper? I think it’s a fab mix of colours, something very unique for the typical UK highstreet brand and I love it! I think this would look fab on toes, and for special occasions it’s very chic.
I had a little accident with my nails and overfiled them so I’m not totally sure whether I’ll be posting the next couple of days, they look rather ugly and stubby and I feel like the lovely Barry M’s deserve better! I’ll see if they grow overnight and decide tomorrow…! Hope you’re all well. Which of the new Barry M polishes have you tried?
