Barry M Nail Paint – Fuschia – NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On July - 26 - 2009




Longwearing, 1-2 coat opacity, smooth application, quick drying, non-staining, cool-toned suiting, hot & striking.

Only thing I don’t love is the application brushes, which I find a little on the thin side, requiring up to 8 strokes to cover the nail evenly and smoothly – but thankfully it’s not SO quick drying that it starts to drag if you go over it a few times.

Another thing I love is the price!  £2.89 each or 2 for £4.99 at the moment in Superdrug.

    Def NOT long wearing. They’ve always chipped a little by the end of day 2 on me, no matter which basecoat I’ve used. It’s downhill from there …

    Fab colour range but you get what you pay for.

  3. Hey Yinka, I wonder why it’s not very long wearing for you – I honestly usually get 3/4 days wear out of this before the tips begin to wear and even then I don’t see any proper chips. Still, my experiences with Nails Inc. have always been rubbish whilst most others sing the praises of the brand!

    I dunno :-( It happens with ALL my Barry M shades. I think I better start wearing gloves to do the washing up whenever I have BM on. It’s so annoying though – argh! It doesn’t stop me from buying them though! LOL

    I wonder if the same will happen with that Nails Inc polish I ordered on Sunday. Time will tell.

  6. …or just leave the washing up to clean itself ;)

    Thanks again for the heads up on the Nails Inc super bargain xx
