NOTD: Barry M '292 - Navy'

If you've seen my previous blog post then you'll know that yesterday was a fighting battle for me when it came to deciding which nail polish colour to have on my nails. I'm not going to go in to it as you can happily skip over to that post and read all about it but I went from colour to colour and then turned to Twitter for suggestions. I love Twitter because when I can't make up my mind, someone on there can do it for me. Amanda of Beauty Blogging Blonde suggested that I paint them in navy which was then agreed upon by Charlie of Lady Of The Lane and Jennifer of All That Glitters And Sparkles but it then dawned on me that I didn't own a navy nailpolish. Or so I thought.

After applying and removing about 6 different shades of nailpolish, I rummaged around in my storage unit and came up trumps with Barry M 'Navy'. I have NO idea whatsoever that I even owned a navy let alone the Barry M which Jennifer had suggested I try. Needless to say that I was a very happy bouncy bunny that I didn't need to out and spend some money on another nailpolish.

This is what it looks like:
It is the perfect metallic navy, although I may refer to it as royal blue instead because navy makes me think of a flat muted dark blue but this is has a gorgeous sheen running through it. It took two thick coats to give it the finish you see above and I added an standard coat of Seche Vite on top to speed up the drying process and give it a glossy finish. I am tempted to add some sort of gold nail art to it on one nail maybe, just to be different... But then again I am absolutely rubbish at nail art so it's better if I don't because I quite like the colour and don't want to have to reapply it.

You can buy Barry M nailpolishes from Boots and Superdrug, both online and in store, and if you're lucky they will even be on a 2 for £5 deal that they have quite often.

Until next time...
Keep swivelling those hips in your

10 stiletto lovers had something to say::

  2. i always fancy a navy nail varnish! You should do a nail varnish storage post :) or just a post on your collection xx

  3. This is one of my favourite colours! I always have a bottle in: good colour, reliable, you can't beat it.

  4. This is one of my favourite nail polishes, I love it :D The colour is so gorgeous. xx

  5. Hi Priyanka. Thanks for commenting. I'm sure once you've applied the nailpolish, you will know exactly what I mean by it's consistency. It goes on like a dream! x

  6. Hi Kia. I don't have a method to my nailpolish storage but I will do a show and tell of the ones I own.. Although it may take a while as I have them scattered all over the house right now! Haha.x

  7. Hi Perdita and Jo. I can't believe I didn't know that I owned this colour because it is gorgeous. I really hope it doesn't start chipping straight away though because it's so pretty and if I take it off, I probably won't re-apply it for a while. x

  8. Hey Charlie. I was so close to ordering the Chanel one online but now I'm glad I didn't because I already have this. I think I have a flat navy blue in my Filthy Gorgeous collection too but again, I have no idea where it is.x

  9. I'm glad I jogged your memory! It would be a shame to forget about such a gorgeous polish x
