Barry M's latest new collection is the Aquarium collection: six sea-related colours. There are 4 duochromes and two shard glitters. I chose two of the duochromes, Caspian on the left, and Mediterranean on the right.
Aren't they pretty? First up, I tried out Mediterranean, the pinky-gold one. And just to warn you - this is going to be photo heavy, because it's PRETTY!
Did I say pretty? I mean DROP DEAD GORGEOUS!
This is three thin coats of Mediterranean, with no topcoat. Two coats would probably have been fine, but it's quite a sheer formula, so I added a third. This is a lovely pinky gold foil that moves between deep pink to bright orange, via peachy gold tones. I ran round the house taking photos in every different light I could find!
Formula is fine - this is smooth and even, dries well and applies easily. The first coat is a bit sheer, as this is a foil, so the particles don't cover the entire nail straight away.
It looks great in the sun.
It looks great in the shade.
I think it's a really flattering colour.
I think I love this polish! Because I can never leave well alone, I decided to also stamp over it. I used Barry M Gold Foil and MoYou London Nature 02 stamping plate.
I used the peacock tail section of the plate to get this feather design. I think the combination works really well!
I like the subtle contrast between Mediterranean and the gold stamping - it's not too obvious, but it is pretty.
The Aquarium collection is out now in Superdrug, and costs £3.99 each. However, I bought these two yesterday on a 2-for-£6 deal, so you can get them cheaper.
