The Barry M Silk Nail Effects are my new favourite thing! I spotted them in Boots the other week on a cheeky 3 for 2 deal so I snapped up a couple and instantly fell in love. I’m all for textured nail polish so obviously this is right up my street! I don’t know how they do it but the effect is really like painting silk on your nails! It’s so flattering and range of shades is perfect for this time of year – muted pastels and neutral tones.
I picked up the shades (L-R) Meadow, Pearl and Mist and I can’t choose a favourite! They retail for £3.99 a pop which I think is pretty reasonable for nail polish these days and I can attest to their resilience… 2 coats (no top coat) and I managed 4 days without chipping! That’s a flaming miracle in my book.
I know a lot of people tend to shy away from textured or ‘effect’ nail polishes but I think this line could be a winner for the masses because the shades are just so wearable! The texture is really subtle too so you won’t find yourself concious that there’s something odd on your nails.
