Today I will be reviewing a product that I have wanted to buy for such a long time but have only just got round to purchasing - that product being the Barry M Nail Paint. I have never actually owned a Barry M beauty product, let alone one of their nail polishes, but after seeing them featured so many times in magazines, and recommended so many times in other blogs I decided to finally get one.
The particular Barry M nail polish that I purchased was the Speedy Quick Dry Nail Paint in the colour Speed Demon, which is a lovely light pink with added shimmer.
I firstly want to say that I really like the packaging of these nail varnishes- they are really sweet and compact bottles that are easy to pop in your bag when you go out or if you are travelling. I also really like the black and white checkered pattern on the Speedy range of polishes as it adds that extra bit of flare to the packaging, and helps them to stand out clearly on the shelf amongst the masses of other nail polishes and their brands.
On to reviewing the actual product though, and I can honestly say that I have all positive points about this polish...
I love the brush in this polish- it is a really great shape and size and helps the polish apply to the nail very easily, which is always obviously a positive for me.
The colour of the polish is so pretty- it is a quite light pink which I really love anyway, but I feel like the shimmer just adds that something more to it. I usually apply two coats to see the colour at its full potential, but I think one coat would look nice as well if you didn't want anything too bright on your nails, and just a bit of a shine.
The polish itself is great quality- I was pretty dubious whether the actual polish would be any good for £3.99, but as soon as applied this product I realised I had been wrong to be so doubtful. It actually stays on my nails extremely well and when I wear it, even after a few days, I can't see any chips when I haven't even applied a topcoat . This leaves me very impressed with the value for money- I have paid a lot more for polishes before and they have almost immediately chipped.
It really does dry quickly- when a nail polish normally says that it dries quickly, I just expect it to be a lie and a bit of myth that just helps to sell the product. But in the case of this nail polish, I actually think the claim seems to be true. Even with two coats of polish it dried super quickly which is always helpful as I suspect myself, and many others hate waiting for nail polish to dry and then smudging it etc.
I generally can't currently find any negatives to this particular product. However, this is only my first Barry M nail polish, so I will have to try some more to see if they all live up to the very high standard of this one!
