NOTD: Barry M Berry Ice Cream (#308)

I love this nail varnish. It applies smoothly, two coats and it’s opaque and it dries pretty quickly. Best thing though about this is that it lasted so well – I had this on for 4 days before I noticed any tip wear and there was no chipping. The picture is of the fourth day – granted, I did have my nails very short, so this probably helped the lack of tip-wear.

Yep, it’s another lilac colour – very similar to the Stargazer colour (see them side by side below) it’s a tough call between the two to decide my favorite. I think the Stargazer is ever so slightly more pink toned – this shows more on the nails than in the bottle. I need to get a shot of this and I will as soon as I next change polishes!

Barry M bought by myself. Stargazer as mentioned provided as PR sample.

    Both look beautiful! I’ve recently purchased a blue-based lilac from Claire’s accessories – I like their polishes, the bottles are tiny and they only cost 2 quid, while being quite good quality!

    I am terrible though; practically my whole nail collection consists of various shades of purples, violets, lilac and pinks… and I’ve waaay too many to mention 😉

    Purples and lilacs are my fave nail varnish colours – I definitely have more of them than any other colour!

    @AnNeTtEe – I do care! I love the look of do you lilac it! I need to get one myself – need to make an ebay nail polish order soon (because I obviously need MORE nail polish…)
