Barry M Sequin Nails

Barry M are pretty much the leaders of innovative nail products on the high street. They seem to constantly find new shades/textures/effects to launch and keep us on our toes! The latest being the sequin effect manicure… which in the bottle looks like a total winner!

The clue to how I feel about this polish being is the fact that it looks good – in the bottle – on the nail? A whole other story…

It’s been a long, long time since I’ve tried a nail varnish that has been this hard to work with – the pictures above was the third time of trying to apply. Thinking maybe I did it too thick or too thin each time…?! But third time, I realised it wasn’t me it was the polish – it just doesn’t work for me at all.

There’s something about this formula that seems to just fail. I don’t know if it’s the think formula combined with chunky glitter? I don’t know what is it but for me, this was a total fail – and it’s really not often that I would say that about a product, I can usually find a positive – but this one really doesn’t.

I will be sticking with the Gelly shades for now!

Barry M is available from Superdrug

Bought by me.

    I do find glitter polishes really difficult to work with. Taking them off is the worst!

    I totally Hate this nail polish! I find it’s like a sand texture on the nails, I put it on and took it straight off! I hated the feel of it on my nails and it went on gloopy and gritty, Such a bad FAIL!! Barry M back to the drawing board with this nail polish please!!!!

    I bought this and I completely agree! It says to apply a basecoat however I think that this basecoat should be white. Also, there is not enough glitter in the bottle! I applied a clear basecoat and then two coats of this nail polish – big mistake, my nails were a mess! I completely agree with you!
