NOTD – BarryM #293 Grey

Posted by Lipglossiping On October - 2 - 2009

I continue to be pleasantly surprised by the quality of BarryM’s polishes.  I know that some people find them not as long lasting as the likes of Nails Inc and O.P.I (out of curiousity, do YOU pronounce it Oh Pee Eye, or Ohpee?) but I simply get equal wear out of these polishes with a fantasticly smooth formula and I can’t argue with that.

I’m on a bit of a “grey” kick at the moment and picked 2 of these shades up in Boots this week:

barrymgrey

This is a real true “concrete” grey which I thought would look hideous on my pale pink toned skin.  I was wrong! That never happens! (no it doesn’t).

The photo makes it look slightly darker than it appears in daylight (picture was taken under flash conditions) – but the tone is true to life.  It’s nice and glossy and I’m really enjoying catching some admiring glances at my fingertips whilst out and about.

I am desperate for BarryM to release some more shades!  Duotones anyone? Do you have a favourite BarryM shade?

BarryM is currently on a 3for2 in Boots and these polishes are priced at £2.89 ea or £2.95 from the BarryM website.

    This has convinced me to replace that vile collection 2000 grey with Barry M. Thank you.
    Looks lovely

    Hey,

    That’s a lush colour! I recently bought ‘The Southbank’ from Nails Inc, which is a pale grey as I wasn’t sure about going for a darker one but you’ve just convinced me 🙂 Thanks for the heads up on the Boots promotion – methinks I’m off to town this weekend 😀

  3. Hi Ladies, it is far more wearable than I thought it would ever be… I’d definitely recommend to anyone!

    Ooh that looks lovely! I think Barry M nail polish is fab- I’ve never had a problem with longevity. My fave is the neon orange, and another one that’s a creamy pinky-coral with no shimmer- love it! Incidentally, I pronounce it oh pee eye, cos surely that’s how it’s meant to be pronounced, what with the fact that they write it with 3 capital letters with dots in between? Lol at my technical grammatical terms!! Anyway, that’s the way they pronounce it on QVC so ner!
