Hello ladies! Now that Spring is here (or is trying to be here, anyway), I really want to get out of the dark nail polish days and brighten up my nails a little bit. I don't feel ready to dip my foot in the pastel pool quite yet, but I'm sure it will only be a few weeks until I do. That's why I love Barry M's Lychee so much - it's not dark and wintery but it kind of says 'on the verge of Spring'. I picked this colour up a few weeks back whilst I was in Boots, as I already had a few colours from the Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Range, and I wanted to purchase a few more. I was instantly drawn to Lychee, it's a beautiful nude shade but what I love about it is that it's undertones are neither too yellow nor too pink, which I often find is a problem with nude shades.
I love this range of nail polish as it's so shiny and glossy, so much so that there's no real need for a top coat! I used two coats of this for complete opacity, but you could definitely get away with only one coat. The only critisism I have is that I find the brush is quite small (as it is with all Barry M nail polish's, as far as I know anyway) and therefore application can sometimes be tricky, but I can get over that :-) Overall, I would say thumbs up to Barry M!
I added an accent nail with some gold glitter nail polish, I'm not sure which brand I used as it's one of my sisters (oops, what she doesn't know can't hurt her). But there are a lot of glitter nail polishes out there that will do the job just as well, such as this one here.
What's your favourite nail colour at the moment? Is there any brands you've been loving?
