Barry M 'Silk' Nail Paint | Review



Hey Beauties...
You may have guessed by now, I have a slight obsession with Barry M Nail Paints. The latest addition to my ever growing addiction, are their new Silk Nail Paints. I was highly impressed with their Matte collection so when I saw these I was very excited to give them a try!

The silk range are a collection of gorgeous pastels inspired by nature, Perfect for the spring/summer months coming up. The have a matte sheen to them, so I would say they are Demi Matte, which is great if your not too keen on matte polishes but want something different to the usual glossy finish.

There are 6 shades to the collection:
-Blossom
-Pearl
-Truffle
-Meddow
-Mist
-Heather

Oli was very nice enough to add to my addiction and treat me to two shades from the collection as part of my valentines gift.

The Shades I got are:

Mist:
Barry M Silk Mist || £3.99
This is such a gorgeous light blue, which reminds me a little of Easter and blue summer skies. 

Blossom:
Barry M Silk Blossom || £3.99
This stunning pink, as the name suggests, really reminds me of the cherry blossoms that used to grow on the trees at my old primary school, also just brings Easter to mind too. 


I've been wearing these nail paints every day since I got them and can honestly say they are my favourite finish. Although they look matte, which I have been loving lately, they have a gorgeous silk feel and slight shine to them which I haven't come across in a polish yet. 
The lasting powder of these are pretty impressive too, most polishes I wear seem to chip within a day. These have lasted me at least 3 days before chipping, without a top coat. They do need a good two coats as they are quite sheer when applying, but then most polishes I use need 2-3 coats so it's nothing to worry about.

I can't wait to get more shades in this finish, as I really do love them and I can definitely see them becoming a favourite of mine for the spring season especially with easter coming up!

Have you tried these yet? What's your thoughts on them? I'd love to know.

  4. I like the colours, but I am not sure on the texture, I'm not a fan off 'pearly' colours, more of a matte girl! But they do actually dry nicer than I thought! Might have to pick up that blue!
