Nail of the Day: Vivid Purple by Barry M

For the past few months, I’ve been meaning to purchase one particular Barry M Nail Polish every time I go into Superdrug, but for some reason I’ve always either forgotten or put it off – probably due to the fact that I feel one day I’m going to own the entire Barry M Nail Paint range! The polish in question is the Barry M Nail Paint in Vivid Purple.

I had previously seen it painted on my boyfriend’s sister’s toes, and absolutely fell in love with both the shade and the fact that it is quite pearlescent. Barry M Nail Polishes are known for being affordable and coming in great shades, and at £2.99 (and in this amazing colour) this one is no exception.

I have been slipping into wearing more neutral shades of nail polish lately, but this one reminded my why I love darker, bolder colours too. Check it out on my nails!

The only thing I dislike about the polish (and Barry M in general) is that it’s not super chip-resistant. I’ve been wearing it for one night and there are a couple of chips on my left hand. It’s nothing a good top coat wouldn’t help prevent, but when the colour is so utterly gorgeous to begin with, I don’t want to tamper with it.

Which nail polishes are you loving at the moment? Do you prefer drugstore/high street polishes or do you tend to go for more high end ones? I’d love to know (I’m a complete mixture!) – leave me a comment!

Stay Creative,

    Wow, that nailpolish looks great!

    My favorite nailpolish is one from Rimmel London, ultraviolet. I adore it! And the best thing about Rimmel nailpolish is the fact that it doesn’t chip! (:

    Wow! It looks awesome! I have 3 OPI polishes, but my other ones are all drugstore brands. I bought an L.A. Colors polish that’s a metallic blue because it reminded me of your Swimsuit… Nailed It one. 😀

    i like high end polishes like O.P.I they last longer i have to use them because my biggest pet peeve is chipped nail polish!! it annoys me to no end! btw a really good top coat is one by Seche Vite it doesn’t drag the polish and drys SUPER fast!:)
