Barry M Mushroom NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On June - 7 - 2010

Oh, I wasn’t expecting not to like you.

You’re a little bit greige gone wrong… too much grey or maybe too much brown… I’m all confused and can’t pinpoint what it is that I don’t like about your colour.  But you’re just not quite right for me.

You were a bit patchy too.  Though I totally admire you pouncing on the latest trends and bringing us great colours at affordable prices… you disappointed me with this one.

I’m sad.  Did I get a duff bottle?  Mine did apply a lot darker than the bottle colour suggested… everyone else seems to love it?!

    It looks a bit like the colour of baby poo. I think it’s a bit too brown, and has a little bit of yellow in it.

    Every swatch I’ve seen of this shade seems to vary. Maybe if you mixed a light grey or nude pink into it?

    This is gorgeous. Love your 4th and 5th finger in it.
    gorgeous colour for a barry m.
    unusually not too flat (i.e creme) for a barry m.
    7/10 overall

    Maybe it’s because of your fair skintone? It *is* pretty dark… with a lot of gold/brown where there *should* be grey :(

    (Then again, if I change the colour settings on my monitor juuuust a touch, it looks AWESOME.)

    All of my Barry M nail polishes seem to apply darker than in the bottle – it makes me a little sad because while they’re still pretty colours, I fall in love with the shade in the bottle!! :(

    Yes, it proved darker on me than I expected. Slightly saddened. If I’d paid big money I’d be a pit peeved about the discrepancy between the bottle colour and the actuality.

    I’m surprise to say it but I really like the colour. Not a shade I could pull off but there’s something about it that’s working for me.

  20. It actually looked slightly different on each nail which was completely odd, I think it was the patchiness…

    I shall go back to my Pink Flamingo which is a freakin’ joy to wear!

    Probably better suited to those with darker skin (women of colour). I really like it but wouldn’t describe colour as being a griege / more a medium greyish-brown, that apllies darker than it appears in the bottle.
