Barry M mania!! Quick swatches and review! :)

I got a bunch of gorgeous Barry M polishes, personally delivered directly from Scotland, from a friend who was there on holiday.

And just look at them!!! Beautiful bright colours with excellent qualities! :D

10 ml (0.35 fl.oz) bottles for only £2.99!!! (Croc £3.99)

Swatches in daylight

Swatches in sunlight

Swatches in artificial light

The croc effect polish is soo cool!! Much better than crackle polish!!

Dusky Mauve really changes depending on the light!!

The Barry M polishes swatched are: (from left to right)

Croc Nail Effect, black - You'll have to wait longer for the croc effect to appear then with crackle, but it's sooo worth waiting for! ;) I swatched it over Orly's Dazzle.

Shocking pink - a bright, almost neon, medium pink cream polish.

Dusky Mauve - a sort of plum/brown/dark taupe colour with an amazing amount of purple shimmer. Almost a duo chrome. Considered to be an almost perfect dupe to Chanel Paradoxal :)

Spring green - a bright mid green cream polish.

Mint green - as the name says :) a mint green cream polish. Some say it's a dupe to Chanel Jade, but if you ask me it's not a perfect dupe.

Coral - a bright coral (leaning towards orange) cream polish. The best picture to see the real colour is the daylight picture.

All swatches are two coats (except the croc effect) and that is enough for full opacity. :D
The formula is great on all creams! They apply totally effortless!
You can order these lovlies at an yes, Barry M shipps internationally! ;)

I'm really looking forward to use them for full manicures!

Thank you so much Mr L for bringing me these jewels! <3
