NOTD: Barry M 'Spring Green'

The other day, I went hunting in my nailpolish drawers to see if I could find some hidden gem that I had cast off as rubbish or completely forgotten about and surprisingly enough, I was right. There seems to be quite a few products in there that I didn't even know I owned or that I've probably used once but never gone back to which seems like a shame but I guess such is life. After all of my rummaging, I came up with nothing except the fact that I didn't own a lot of green nailpolishes. I have a few lime green and pastel shades but no 'grass' green colours so I set that as my mission for the week.

My first point of call was Boots as they have so many brands to choose from but I knew which one in particular I was going to be heading for...
Good ol' Barry M. At £2.99 a pop, you really couldn't ask for a better deal or a selection of nailpolishes so when I saw this number sitting in the rack I figured it would be a good start to my mission.
Spring Green by Barry M is actually a lot more 'neon'-ish in life than it is captured in a photo but it's a gorgeous colour nonetheless. The first coat went on streaky but the second coat evened it all out and gave a nice opaque finish which I love about Barry M nailpolishes. There are some in the range that are so thin and crappy, regardless of how many coats you do, but then there are others like this one that go on so smooth and look great.

If you know of any other green nailpolishes that I should try out then drop the details in the comments box so I can look into it and start building up a little family :-)

Until next time...
