I recently spotted that Barry M had launched four new limited edition nail paints, two of which are exclusive to Boots and the other two are exclusive to Superdrug, so being the Barry M Nail Paint lover that I am I just had to check them out. I must admit I wasn't bowled over by the shades that are exclusive to Boots, their both different shades of nude which is great for those nude nail loving gals but not for me, I'm more for a bit of colour. I then checked out Superdrugs offering, again I as greeted with another shade of nude but wait.... the other was a pretty shade of pink that I just couldn't resist sharing with you all.
The shade I fell in love with is Festival Fever, a gorgeous bubblegum pink with a golden shimmer/sheen running through it, it's so pretty for the Summer. The formula is very pigmented and applies well, I only needed two thin coats to achieve fully opaque nails and the dry time was pretty quick too. The finish of Festival Fever is semi-matte, I think this is down to the amount of golden shimmer the polish contains, so if you like a glossy nail you'd need to apply a top coat with this. I actually found the lasting power very good, this shade was on my nails a good four days before I had any chipping which I was really impressed with. The only downside with this shade for me really was that the golden shimmer wasn't very noticeable, I can only really see it in strong direct sunlight, it's not a big deal I guess but I would of liked to see the golden sheen more. If your worrying about this being hard to remove because of the shimmer then fear not, it came off my nails just like any regular polish so the shimmer really didn't hinder the removal process at all thank goodness.
Overall I absolutely love this shade and would highly recommend picking it up before they all sell out, the formula is gorgeous and I really cant knock the lasting power either, and if your into your nude nail polishes I'm sure the other three exclusive shades will be lovely too.
You can find the Barry M Nail Paint in Festival Fever exclusivly in Superdrug for £3.99 HERE.
