Review: Barry M Teal

I was lucky enough to receive a couple of nail polishes from my wonderful fiancé for my birthday this week. This beauty is one of them.

Barry M - Teal

As my regular readers will know, I am a big fan of Barry M nail polishes. They always have a good consistency, great colour and survive on my nails for ages! Barry M’s Teal is no different as was a wonderful present to receive.

Whenever we go shopping and I pop into Superdrug or Boots, Jack always sways towards the shiny bluey greeny polishes when I ask his opinion. Due to that, I wasn’t that surprised to pull this out of the wrapping paper!

Barry M Teal is a super shiny, shimmery, teal coloured (duh) polish. It only took two coats to get it opaque and I couldn’t stop staring at it! It is so so pretty. Not too thin, not too gloopy, dried quick, lovely!

You can buy Barry M Teal from Superdrug, Boots or the Barry M website.

Day 12 of the 30 Day Challenge: Stripes

Sorry for the late post today folks! I’ve had the day off today and have spent it looking into a new nail-related web project. More info coming on that in the next few weeks!

Today’s theme is ‘stripes’ and I didn’t really want to do your average striped nails, so I went for something a bit different! I realised that my nail polishes and nail art design generally aren’t very work-friendly. I’m very lucky in the face that I can wear whatever nail polish I like to work but I know that some of you can’t. So here’s a simple elegant nail art design that could be worn around the office :)

My untried for the day today is No7′s Totally Teal. I tend to find Teal a bit of an awkward colour as I don’t really own anything that is teal coloured, so that’s probably why I have never used it before. It was really lovely to use though and I’ll have to use it again as the colour suited me quite nicely.

I used my new LA Colors Art Deco in Black which is a tall thin bottle with very thin long brush in it that is perfect for making these thin stripes across the nail.

Overall I’m really pleased with this manicure, but the colours do leave me wanting to re-do this in a lime green and purple or something!

For this manicure I used:
  • Revlon – Quick Dry Base Coat
  • No7 Stay Perfect – Totally Teal
  • LA Colors Art Deco – Black
  • Revlon – Quick Dry Top Coat
