So, I got a bit carried away with the new Barry M releases, and bought everything I could get my hands on. Today, I have swatches of the new Silk colours for you.
I loved the first Silk colours that came out earlier this year; the pretty pastel range with the gorgeous silky matte finish and the fantastic quality. So when I heard there were three new colours for autumn, with rich berrry shades, I was very excited! Left to right here we have Poppy (the red one), Forest (the green one) and Orchid (the purple one).
First up is Forest. This is two coats. Application on all of these polishes was excellent - smooth, even, quick-drying, and with a beautiful matte-but-silky finish. I found that two thin coats was better than one thicker one.
Forest is a gorgeous shimmery dark green. As this was so pretty, I wondered what it would look like with topcoat...
GORGEOUS is clearly the answer!
Next up is Poppy, a lovely red that's just on the autumnal side. I love this - it makes me think of autumn leaves and rusty autumn colours.
Again, it's stunning with topcoat!
I mean - just look at it!
Last of the bunch is Orchid, the purple one, and I think my favourite.
I love the way this looks with the silky sheen. It's just so eyecatching!
And glossy... well!
I don't think I have any colours quite like this, and I really love it. I can see this one getting a lot of wear this winter!
