Smooth as Silk




So I went shopping at the weekend and went a little cray cray. My keen eye spotted Barry M's new collection of 'Silk' nail paints. With the 3 for 2 offer on I snapped up three shades so I could try them out for you guys. I picked up the shades Blossom (pink), Mist (blue) and Pearl (white). I was especially keen to try the Pearl shade as I have always loved white nails.

I must say, I really do like this range. The nail paints give a unique finish making nails look very luxurious and chic, like silk. The polish manages to maintain the perfect combination of a matte and shiny finish making these truly unique. All of the shades in the range are pastel colours that have been inspired by nature and I must day, these colours definitely remind me of flowers. These nail polishes could not be any more perfect for spring, which is just around the corner!


One coat of these polishes looks okay but it can be a little streaky so I would recommend two coats to really show off the colour. As these have a more matte finish, using a normal top coat will take away the 'silk' effect but if the colour is what you're after then this is not a problem. However, you can now purchase top coats with a matte finish in order to maintain the effect. I would personally recommend the OPI Matte Top Coat.



These polishes are available for £3.99 which is a great price for such a lovely range of colours that have a gorgeous effect on nails that is perfect for the upcoming season!

Have you tried the Barry M Silk collection yet? What do you think of these colours?
