Barry M ~ Raspberry

Barry M ~ Raspberry
Deep, raspberry red

and

Nubar ~ White Polka Dot
Clear base with multisized white “dots”

I’ve heard quite a lot about Barry M, so I thought I’d give it a go. I ordered this Raspberry colour along with a few others, and was excited when they showed up. They look just as pretty as I expected them to.

So, about the application: The formula is quite thick, but still very easy to work with. The polish glided right on, and left no streaks or bald spots at all. Nice. And behold! This turned out to be a one coater!! So I’ll definitely try and stamp with this colour as well. <YAY>

Let me show you – one coat, no top coat yet:


But that’s obviously not it. I had another polish to try – Nubar’s “White Polka Dots”. I’ve also got the “Black Polka Dots”, but now that spring might be around the corner soon, I wanted something more bright and happy.

The dots spread easily out on the nail, I didn’t have to push them much around with the brush. It’s weird, because the black dots were so much harder to arrange on the nails. I’m not complaining though – it’s just nice that one of them is easy to work with.

Here’s one coat of the polka dots over the raspberry:


Do you like it? I think it looks great – in all modesty, obviously! :D

Both pictures are taken in the sun by the way! It seems like ages since I saw the sun last, so I was very excited to be able to take some pictures where the polish shows all its colours!

    1. I spotted the Nubars on your recent post about your stash! :D
      If there are Barry M polishes that you can't get your hands on yourself, I'd be happy to get them for you.
