NOTD | Barry M Duo I'm Loving!

Hey beaut's!

I recently realised that its been such a long time since I done a NOTD post, so today I thought I'd jump back on the NOTD bandwagon and share some love of two nail polishes that I've been addicted to wearing recently, so say hello to Barry M's Silk Poppy (£2.99) and Jingle Bells (£3.99)....
Firstly can we just appreciate how pretty these two polishes are, I love them!!! Poppy is from Barry M's new Autumn/Winter Silk Collection and is a gorgeous deep burgundy shade that has a slight duo chrome/shimmery silk look to it, it one of my all time favourite Autumn/Winter shades and reminds me so much of mulled wine he he. Jingle Bells just screams Christmas and everything festive to me and I just couldn't wait to use it, it has a clear top coat base and contains so many pretty sparkles that are suspended within it, theres little gold stars, gold hex glitters, red glitter flakes, gold flakes, minute gold glitters its just crammed full and I love it!
The Silk Poppy shade applies effortlessly, the formula is really smooth so theres no bubbling or streaking during application and it drys super quick leaving you with that silk-matte finish. Jingle Bells was alot easier to apply than I first thought, usually glitter polishes that contain large glitters never apply well because it's hard to get the glitters even but because Jingle Bells is literally crammed full of glitter it seems to go on well, however I did find myself having to dab the little stars on with the end of the brush because the brush strokes seem to take the stars back off annoyingly.
I did finish my nails off with my Beauty UK 5 in 1 Top Coat for that extra glossy look, as much as I do like the silk-matte finish I do love a glossy nail more so this time around I used a top coat, I would also suggest making sure you always use a top coat over Jingle Bells as some of the glitters don't lay completely flat on the nail so it best to just seal them in with a top coat so they don't chip off.

Overall I love this little Barry M duo, Poppy is the perfect Autumn/Winter shade and teamed with Jingle Bells it looks super pretty. They are such versatile shades to and can be used casual for the daytime, for evenings out and they will work perfectly for any Christmas parties that are fast approaching.

Have you picked up any of the Barry M Autumn/Winter shades yet beaut's?? I'd love to know!!

  2. Fab NOTD! I picked up a Christmas glitter from Barry M in Boots the other day!


  3. That is really pretty. Poppy looks lovely on it's own too. Not sure i'd have the patience for this as I know how long it takes to get that sort of nail varnish off afterwards! I have bought a couple of their autumn shades, you can have a look here if you like : x

  4. The colours work gorgeously together I saw silk poppy on another blog yesterday and im dying to get my hands on it. This time of year is all about the reds and purples! Love the glittery nail varnish too although I think its best I stay away from the glitters as I already have so many!!! Xxxx
