I picked up this fab limited edition Barry M nail polish at Superdrug the other week in an offer where it was spend £6 and get either this vibrant green or a neon pink free. I’m not really a fan of pink nails, but seem to have quite a few, including a seriously neon pink by Zoya, so decided to try out this zingy green! I loved the jazzy aztec patterned lid, and thought it seemed a really fun colour for summer, and would help me channel a bit of Wimbledon spirit!
I was actually surprised how much I liked this colour! It’s quite unusual – not quite lime green, but a bit brighter than the spring greens I have in my collection. I wasn’t sure whether I would find it very wearable, however I really liked how it looked on and it’s added a great pop of colour to every outfit I’ve worn.
It applied well, though it is quite sheer. I’ve got two coats on here and you can still see the tips and crescent on some nails. I could probably have put a third coat on to even it out and added more opaqueness, but I always find any more than 2 coats and my polish is too thick and just peels off. I also kind of think this sheerness suits this colour! It feels like a really nice translucent gloss on my nails! As with all Barry M nail polishes I found it dried with a nice shiny finish, which I enhanced and sealed with a top coat (Save the Nail Wet Look Topcoat).
The only thing I found slightly disappointing with this colour is that it is not nearly as neon as it appears in the bottle. Bright yes, neon no! But the flip side of that is that I can still enjoy this pretty bold nail polish, AND have an excuse to buy another in the search for an ultra vibrant neon green! Watch this space…..!
Did you buy either this green or the pink limited edition Summer 2013 Barry M nail paints?
