Barry M Countess - Textured Glitter Tape Mani

After the huge disappointment of the Rock Goddess set, here's a polish and a look that I AM pleased with!  This is one of the new Barry M textured glitter collection, Countess.

I started with two coats of Models Own Gold Rush, a lovely sparkly gold metallic polish. Then I used striping tape and one generous coat of Barry M Countess on top, and removed the tape.

Countess is a very fine textured glitter, packed with dark brownish gold glitter and some red and gold in there as well.

I couldn't help then adding topcoat to see what this was like glossy!

Oh my!  I like this a LOT!

Isn't it a pretty colour?

At first glance this is black and glittery, but when you really look, it's brown and red and purplish...

This gets a big thumbs up from me. You can buy this alongside the main Barry M collections in Boots and Superdrug for £3.99, although there are often special offers as well.


  1. This is really pretty! I need to get these new BarryMs!

    1. Thanks! I only bought this one, but the quality is really good, so I may well go back and get some others.

    2. OMG, I think I need this really quite a lot.

  2. I bought this one too, its so gorgeous isn't it! So many different colours! I'm such a magpie lol!

    I'm definitely going to try the gold underneath though, looks stunning! xxx

  3. This is the most confusing polish ever. It's brown & gold in the bottle, but purple & pink on the cotton wool pad when I take it off. And every colour in between on my nails. I love it!

  4. I love this! I must get into nail tape a bit more! I haven't really had much of a go with it! This is a brilliant manicure x

    1. Thanks! Yes, I love tape for nails - either normal sellotape or narrow striping tape. It's quite easy really and definitely worth playing around with.
