Barry M Arabian

Hello! Today presents the inception of the A to Z series! This is a little series that I’ll be doing with Charlie from Pocket Money Polishes, Anna from AnnaBean’s Nails, Sarah from Penny Pinching Polish and Kerrie from Pish Posh and Polish 🙂 what happens is we each choose a nail polish who’s name begins with the letter corresponding to that week – as such, today is A, and I have chosen Barry M Arabian, which is from the Barry M Aquarium Collection  <—- click to see my reviews on other polishes in the collection! 😀

Hope that makes sense because my brain is well and truly all over the place today! I realised while trying to choose an ‘A’ polish, I don’t have a huge amount that begin with ‘a’ compared to some other letters – let me know some ideas!

Barry M Pacific

Hey everyone! It’s another one from the Barry M Aquarium  today! I am all over this collection seriously – I’m not sure whether it’s been my resisting buying for so long or whether they really are amazing, but I am loving them!! Here is my second favourite of the duochromey ones – Pacific (following the water theme!)

I feel like I’ve seen this colour before in a polish but I don’t own any like it so I’m fine with that. 🙂 I do love a good teal polish! A quick note on the pictures – my camera picked up the brush stroke pattern really well (sometimes high definition isn’t such a good thing I suppose!) but basically the polish doesn’t look as brush-strokey in person as it does in the pics. But no matter what I did, it wasn’t happening through the lens!

Barry M Caspian

Hello everyone! I am unbelievably excited to be showing you the Barry M Aquarium Collection this week. As I’ve mentioned before, we’ve been pinching the pennies for a little while, so things like nail polish have taken a slightly inferior seat recently compared to things like food and rent! However now I’m working and had my first payslip I’ve been able to treat myself to the new collection, which I’ve been lusting after since the moment I saw they were coming out!!

The Aquarium Collection has been the top of my list (you know how I feel about my beloved Barry M!) because while duochromes have been ‘in’ for a good 2 years, brands seem to keep releasing the same colours – however I spotted at least two which look totally unique to me in this collection! So on Friday I visited Boots and Superdrug… because I felt like if I bought 12 polishes in one go I’d be exposed for the true addict I am…! So I got 6 from each (which still raised two sets of eyebrows… but I needed them!!) as they had virtually the same offer on (Boots buy one get one half price and Superdrug two for £6 on all £3.99 Barry M Nail Paints).

Picture Polish Gravity

So I’m finally at the last of the Picture Polish Limited Edition Collection… these polishes are just too beautiful for words. The funny thing is, is that this time 2 years ago I’d have hated them because I hated layering, and yet these are honestly some of the most amazing duochromes and multichromes I own! The collection consists of 5 layering polishes: Altered State, Aurora, Gravity, Illusionist and Solar Flare.

I so nearly DIDN’T get Solare Flare and Gravity because I wasn’t sure I liked them, but I am so glad I did. Amazing amazing amazing!

Picture Polish Solar Flare

Hello lovelies! I have a little confession to make… I think you probably knew as well as I did that I wasn’t going to be able to resist getting the last two from the Picture Polish Limited Edition Collection. Might as well get it out in the open – I am now the proud (and broke) owner of all 5. I didn’t even LIKE Solar Flare in online swatches, but I just couldn’t resist the temptation… le sigh, what is life etc etc. Last week I showed you Aurora, Illusionist and Altered State, and now I have Solar Flare, and Gravity… 🙂 No judging here please 😉
