Barry M: Pink Tourmaline

Barry M: Pink Tourmaline
Described as a hot pink texture with a gold shimmer

"Pink Tourmaline" is from Barry M's collection "Crystal Rock". There are seven polishes in the collection and I bought four of them. "Pink Tourmaline" is the second one I try on.

The formula is really good and so is the coverage. I used two easy coats for full opacity and the drying time is good.

The stamp is from the stamping plate "Mezerdoo35". I stamped with El Corazón's stamping polish "Yellow Neon".

Here is the final result, including a layer of topcoat. The first photo is taken under a lamp.

This is the same thing in daylight, no sun. The polish leans more red than pink, in my opinion.

Here is "Pink Tourmaline" alone; two coats and no topcoat yet. The colour changed quite a lot when the topcoat was applied.

Here are the things I used today.

As I said: The colour of "Pink Tourmaline" changed a lot when I added topcoat to the mix. I honestly liked the colour best with topcoat.

Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Good
Finish: Texture with shimmer
Overall impression: Great formula, nice shimmer
Buy again: Yes


  1. Yes, definitely very very pretty, in textured version and in glossy version! :-)
