Barry M Nail Paint - New Addition - Denim



Today I have a peep at Barry M's new Nail Paint offering, Denim. It's a bright, royal blue richly infused with silver micro shimmer.

Gorgeous in the natural sunlight, this blue boy will set you back €4.79 from Boots but they very often have specials so unless you're gagging to pick it up, I'd hold off for a deal.

I'm especially impressed with the pigmentation of this new line (which also includes Copper, Silvery Lilac & Teal). Complete opacity can be reached with just one coat, which is a rarity in the polish world.  Denim dries semi matte, so if high shine is your preference, you're going to need a top coat.

Close up, innit?
And now for the bad news, while this didn't chip outright, there was tip wear on the second day with this polish, even with a Seche Vite top coat. I don't mind so much with lighter colours but with this blue, it's immediately obvious and just made my nails seem a little tatty. Boooo.

While it's not one for longevity, I'm still loving the colour and formulation. For a night out or to match an outfit (possibly denim), I'd say Denim is a winner.

Have you picked up anything from the new Barry M line as yet?

I hear the others are better though, Cuti, there was no Copper there when I was there and the Silvery Lilac was just too like OPIs Not Like in The Movies for me to buy. I'll report back about Copper :)

have to say i really like this colour, but the last Barry M one i got was a peachy colour and was a nightmare to put on, kinda watery, i don't think it was part of the new line, i got it about 3 months ago, Rimmel have a blue one, think its a bit darker, i love the Rimmell Lycra ones as they last ages, good review, but think i will give this one a miss if it wears straight away, (drives me mad)

If the budget variety for the addition is limited, some organizations take techniques to ensure a benefit -examples involve putting footings at trivial overall absolute depths, making out steel motivation that can create the platform more powerful, and "scrimping" on stone and waterflow and waterflow and drainage floor tile that helps move h2o away from the new platform. construction companies san francisco
