Barry M ~ Amethyst Glitter
Clear base with magenta, blue and gold glitters
Barry M has made some really nice glitters recently. Amethyst Glitter is one of them, and I’m happy I bought it even though some of it’s glitters turned out to be golden.
I started out my mani with Flormar 446, a lovely blue from their Spring & Summer 2012 collection. Sweet Aylin sent me this bottle and I am ever so grateful.
I applied a coat of Amethyst Glitter on my pinkie and my thumb. There are two coats of Flormar on the three middle fingers, and this is how that all looks:
The Flormar is easy to work with – it’s such a great brand! And the Barry M glitter spread out evenly without any problems at all. I love polishes like these!
Here’s a pic from another angle:
Then I made stripes on the three middle fingers. I used a pink striper from Amuse called “Metal Pink”, and a silver striper from Claire’s that doesn’t have a name. I had to go over the pink stripes again to make sure they stood out nicely. I don’t like the smell of the Amuse polish – and there’s something in it that irritated my throat so I coughed throughout the session. I’m not going to use this polish very often, that’s for sure.
When I was satisfied with my stripes I sponged Amethyst Glitter on the tips of my ring finger and my pointer. I applied one coat of Poshé top coat, and my many was done!
After having taken these pictures, I had to apply another coat of Poshé top coat on the two sponged tips to smoothen out the texture.
Here are the involved polishes:
So, what is the verdict, ladies? Do you like this? Or is there too much going on?
