Manicure Monday

barry m - personal best

Hello my Loves ­čÖé

For this week’s nail colour I’ve chosen Personal Best by Barry M.

With the sun finally making an appearance in Scotland this week I’m getting into the spirit of summer which for me means getting out the pastel nail shades.

The colour is from Barry M’s Speedy Quick Dry spring Range.

I would describe Personal Best as a dusty muted lavender, it’s a lovely shade as it’s not too bold and bright but rather a pretty and ┬ádelicate way to have a pop of colour on your nails.

I found the formula and application really easy, some drugstore nail polishes can be slightly on the thin side but I only needed 2 coats to get a nice even opaque finish.

They have a few other colours that I have my eye on so you my see more from this range.

Have you tried any of Barry M’s Spring Colours?

Manicure Monday

barrym almond

Hello my loves!

So before I start I first want to apologise for my shoddy application ( I never realised how bad my cuticles were) you would never believe I’m a trained beauty therapist from this shot.

I’m currently giving my nails a wee break from their usual Shellac as I’ve noticed they’re getting a tad dry so it’s given me a chance to actually wear some of my nail varnish collection.

This week I went with Barry M Almond from their Gelly Collection

Almond is a pale mauve almost taupe colour. It’s a┬áchic easy to wear shade and has that sophisticated greige tone. It applied nicely with 2 coats easily giving it a good opaque colour.

Also I did find the formula of this seems to be quite thin in comparison to most polishes. I actually think a lot of people will prefer them this way as it will make them easier to apply for those that found the others too thick – unless you’re like me, I love thicker formulas, I think when your used to doing gel in the salon you tend to favour a thicker formula as it’s quicker to use by only needing 2 coats.

What nil colours are you liking for Spring?

Nails of the week

I love a good raspberry shade, especially at this time of year. If you’re like me and have a pink undertone this shade has the right amount of blue in it while still being warm.

I love Barry M nail varnishes. They’re brilliant quality for the price tag and really do last quite a while. Hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend!
