Barry M Lemon Ice Cream - swatches and review

Let's start the week with something happy and exhilarating! My vacation is over and I need an energy boost! This is the lovely soft yellow Barry M Lemon Ice Cream!

A perfect yellow that even I looked good in! ;) I don't wear a lot of yellow because it turns my skin into a greenish and who wants to go around looking like she has Hulk hands? Lol!

Totally effortless application - as with most Barry M's actually.



GOOD TO KNOW:

Type of polish: Cream.

Color: A soft almost dusky lemon yellow.

Number of coats: Three.

Formula: Very nice! Easy to control and very self leveling.

Brush: Very good! No complaints.

Top Coat: Yes, one coat. 

Color accuracy in pictures: Accurate.

Grade: 3+/5

As I said above, yellow is not really my color, but I actually like this one! The formula is great too! Maybe a 3+ is a bit tight, but it is still a yellow ;) This one will be perfect for nail art though.

I can't believe Barry M polishes are so good and so cheap at the same time! Barry M should get a lot more cred really!

How do you like Lemon Ice Cream?
What are your thoughts on Barry M's polishes?

  2. Haha, har svårt att tro att dina händer ser gröna ut med gult ;) Själv älskar jag gula naglar och detta lack var riktigt fint! :D Namnet var ju inte fel det heller.

  4. Färgen är fin, men det ser lite tjockt ut? Eller är det bara som det ser ut?

    1. Den är absolut inte tjock! Inte alls! Måste vara ljuset eller nåt.

  5. Hi pet, oh I love Lemon Ice Cream on you!!! Such a boost of boldness and happiness - just right to start the week!!! And I swear - to date I haven't heard of such a perfect yellow before ever!!! I don't own any Barry M's - there was a time when Harlow & Co offered Barry M's but I gave them a pass then (was totally hooked to KBShimmer) and now I would not know from where to get them. They are not sold in shops here - oh well.... And for sure Barry M fell somehow of the nailpolish plate in the recent past. I remember seeing swatches more often last year ;-) - have a lovely evening - viele Küsschen xxx

    1. Hi cupcake! Thank you! This is a really nice yellow! Very nice - for being a yellow ;)
      You can order Barry M's directly from their site but the shipping cost is expensive! Let me know if you want any I'll get them for you when I'm in London!
      I think Barry M got overlooked when the whole indie polish wave came. They do mostly creams and shimmers which might not be that exciting if you compare that to indie polishes BUT they do make the most amazing creams!! And so cheap too! I love them! Viele Küsschen!! xxx

  7. Yellow is definitely the colour that I don't have... I don't like to wear yellow (I think I don't have anything yellow to wear...) and I have only 2 yellow nail polishes! :-) But, I like pastel yellow and I think that I would surely use this one for my nail art creations! :-)

    1. Väldigt fin, speciellt men tanke på det billiga priset på knappt 30 kr :)
