Barry M 'Vintage Violet'

Wednesday, November 19, 2014

This post is a little late, three weeks late in fact - oops, sorry! I am not wearing it anymore, therefore can't class it as a 'Nails of the Week' and as I don't know when I'll be wearing it again (I have so many polishes to try over the next couple of months), I thought I'd make a post especially for 'Vintage Violet' from Barry M's Nail Paint Collection; an ode to it if you will.

If you read my haul post, you will have seen me pick up this polish, after some enabling from Lily Pebbles. I wore it the week after I got it but it was back when I was being a bit neglectful of the blog - naughty me. 

It's a lovely dusky purple, that has undertones of brown to make it a warmer colour. My one friend said that it looked like chocolate from a distance, which was a sweet way to describe it!

As with previous Barry M varnishes, the formula is great for it's price tag. They really are fab nail varnishes but the only thing that let's them down is the brush. It's small and flat-ended which can make application more difficult and more tidying up is needed. Other than that, I have to admit that Barry M is one of my favourite nail varnish brands.

Thanks for the recommendation Lily!

Have you tried this one out?
