Barry M Nail Paint: Raspberry

I can't say I have a go-to colour when it comes to my nails, you could say I am a little fickle with my polishes! In Spring and Summer I turn to the pastel shades, in the colder months I reach more for the darker colours, usually black's, grey's, navy's and deep purple. One thing you can usually count on is that the colour will change weekly, which is why I though this little bottle deserved a mention as it has been on my nails now for weeks!

I bought Barry M Raspberry Nail Paint last year and I did use it but not very often, it was put away with my polishes and forgotten about a little bit. Just over three weeks ago I took it out because I wanted something very different to the lighter colours I had been wearing, since that day I have continued to repaint my nails with it and I have done it again today! The colour is perfect for this time of year, it is a deep but slightly pinkish red which is why I think I enjoy it so much, sometimes bright true reds look harsh against my pale skin. As with all Barry M Nail Paint's I have tried, the application is lovely. The paints are beautiful and creamy and even though you could get away with one good coat, two gives you a flawless finish. I also find that if you don't have the best nails (like me!) two coats cover a good deal of imperfections such as peeling or flaking.

As for how long it lasts, I would have to give it great marks! Because mine aren't in great condition, polishes can chip more on me than someone with perfect nails. I can get three days without chipping which for me is excellent and at £2.99 per polish (usually on 3 for 2 in Boots), that is great value for money!

What colours are you loving right now?


  1. Such a pretty shade! I'm glad you took this out from hiding! :D

  2. This is the perfect shade for the holidays! I owned it a long time ago and I loved it :)

    1. It really is, I'm sad I didn't take it out sooner :)
