Tonight's post is just a quick look at the two new Barry M Aquarium colours - Persian and Atlantis. Persian is a purple-gold duochrome, and Atlantis is a multicoloured glitter.
Here I'm wearing two coats of Persian over a base of plain black creme, and a coat of Atlantis on my thumb and ring finger.
Persian has quite a thin formula, which is why I've worn it over a black base. You can get the same result without the black base, but it'll take 3-4 coats. The formula is good though - it's even and smooth, and dries well.
Persian has a lovely purple shimmery finish in most indoor light, and then a lovely golden orange sheen in some other lights. It looked purple most of the time today, but then is showing the gold a lot more in the photos!
Atlantis is a clear base with lots of tiny silver hex particles, larger silver hex particles, blue diamond shapes, and fuchsia pink irregular shapes. It's super sparkly, as you can see! It needed a bit of dabbing and poking about to get the glitter evenly spaced, because it does tend to drag towards the tip of the nail otherwise.
I really like these two! Aren't they pretty?
