Coconut oil is huge right now, whether it be eating, cooking, haircare or slathering ourselves in it like a body moisturiser but never did I think it would work its way inside my nail polish bottles but oh wait..... yes it has thanks to the amazing Barry M! That's right Barry M have a new line of nail polishes for Spring and Summer named Coconut Infusion, they are made with a whole new formulation that blends together both coconut water and coconut oil to gently hydrate and nourish the nails, how awesome is that! Obviously as soon as I heard about this launch I just had to pop into Superdrug and grab a couple of the shades to try and thanks to Superdrug's 3 for 2 offer I got three for the price of two!
The new collection has 9 spring/summer worthy shades in total all with have a beach theme which I think is so cute, I opted for Flamingo - a bright coral, Aloha - a hot pink and finally Surfboard - a stunning pastel dusty pink, borderline lilac shade. I've actually worn all three of the shades I picked up already and I have to say this formulation is my favourite by Barry M and that's really saying something considering I'm a huge Barry M nail paint fan anyway. Each nail paint went on super smooth with no bubbling or streaking and was easily opaque after two quick coats and dried quickly, I definitely felt like the formula was slightly thicker than the average Barry M nail paint but I actually preferred that because my nails felt slightly more durable afterwards. The finish was smooth, glossy and gel-like and I was chip free for a good 3-4 days, also I haven't broken a nail since wearing these polishes so whether that's just pot luck or it has something to do with the formula I have no idea!
Do they smell of coconut??? Sadly they don't, that is literally the only thing that was disappointing for me about these nail paints, otherwise I absolutely adore this new Coconut Infusion range and cant wait to see what other shades Barry M add to the collection during the rest of the year!
Have you tried the Barry M Coconut Infusion Nail Paints beaut's? What shade is your favourite? I 'd love to know!
