I’d heard that Berry Ice Cream was a hard colour to track down, so I was really delighted to be able to waltz into my local Superdrug and whisk this and Mushroom off the shelves without any problems at all! And I only paid a fiver for both!
Berry Ice Cream is a bright lilac pastel. It’s not pastelly enough to be soft and floaty (if that makes sense!). It has a bit o brightness to it that would endear it to most skintones. Sometimes, lilacs can make darker skintones look kinda dead… zombie hands. I can’t imagine you’d have the same issues with this one, it has enough punch to it!
Application was fair… 3 coats to cover any imperfections or patches from a small amount of cuticle drag. Dried speedily and as with most BarryM shades I’ve tried, it has an impressive glossy finish.
Many people have issues with BarryM polishes chipping on them, but I never do… so although I can safely state that in 2 full days of wear I had no chipping, that doesn’t necessarily mean much.
If you’re looking for a colour to take you from Spring into Summer… this is a great choice. However, I’m totally lagging in the ‘what’s hot’ stakes so this shade is probably already SO LAST SEASON.
Whatever bitches, I was rocking an Autumn colour last weekend… my fingers transcend fashion.
BarryM Nail polishes are still on a 2 for £5 offer in Superdrug, so get ‘em while they’re hot! (or not).
