Barry M Christmas Limited Editions

Barry M have launched four limited edition Christmas polishes this week - two in Boots (free if you spend £6, not available for purchase) and two in Superdrug, which are either free if you spend £6, or available to buy for £3.99 each.  Here I have the two Superdrug colours.

On the bottles, they're labelled 'SLE A' and 'SLE B', but on Barry M's Facebook page, they're called Christmas Blue and Christmas Glitter.

This is two coats of Christmas Blue, with Christmas Glitter on my ring finger. Christmas Blue is an icy foil metallic blue, with lots of shimmery particles. Application is a little draggy - too thin a coat does drag and leave bare batches; I found a thicker coat went on more smoothly.

Christmas Glitter is a clear base (rather thick, and very smelly!) with lots of tiny blue and green glitter, and larger pieces of blue, green and reddish fuschia glitter. I love how sparkly it is!

I really like both of these.

The bottles look great, with the textured foil caps (so shiny!) - the display in Superdrug looked so pretty!  The limited editions in Boots were all gone in two stores I looked in this week, although I managed to find some in the third, so i think these are pretty popular!

  1. oooh they look so sparkly!

    I managed to get the Boots ones (yay!) but I haven't been able to find the Superdrug ones yet. I NEED the Christmas glitter :)

    1. I think that officially, the Superdrug ones were only released yesterday (although I found my blue one on Sunday for some reason).

      The glitter is really nice - it's not quite like any others I have. Let me know if you find it!

    2. I found the Superdrug ones yesterday - yay! I'm loving the Christmas Blue, it's not a festive colour in the slightest but I do love my blue polishes :D

    3. Yay! Well done. It may not be festive, but it's certainly wintery - it makes me think of ice and snowflakes.
