Recently, Barry M released some much anticipated new nail polishes. It had been a while since a new range had been introduced and as a result, we were gifted with a great selection of daring colours and new technology. I am generally a fan of Barry M so I purchased almost all of the new range. Some I have loved. Some I’m not impressed with. Today’s polish is, unfortunately, one of the latter which is such a shame as it was the one I was most excited about.
335 Copper is a fine, dense glitter polish with aclear base and bronze, gold and brown glitter. It’s a subtle but intense polish that you will either love or hate.
It’s a metallic polish that isn’t too ostentatious
The iridescent copper is hypnotic
It’s easy to apply and you only need two coats for opacity
Though it’s a pretty colour, it doesn’t suit me and I imagine it’s hard to wear for most
It takes ages to dry even with a fast dry topcoat and left a lot of depression marks
It chips quickly – two days in and it looked awful – obviously this could just be my nail type etc but it’s not like other Barry M polishes I use
As I say, it’s a shame because in the bottle it’s beautiful but I would recommend at least swatching before you buy to make sure it suits you.
