Barry M Texture Nail Art


Day 20 of the New 31 day challenge was texture. Now if you want to see the horrific caviar bead fail I had, check out my instagram...instead I'm going to show you three of the new Barry M texture polishes :) Cheating? Just a little bit... Cheeky? Well, that's why you love me ;)

Barry M bought out four texture polishes, along with four new Gelly shades for the spring. As soon as they were available to order from Superdrug, 3 of them went in my basket. I didn't get the yellow at the time, although I've regretted it and I will go back for it! I've got swatches of Ridley Road (pale, mint green) and Kingsland Road (pale pink) and then some stripey stripes with baby blue Atlantic Road too.

First up, Kingsland Road. On it's own it would be a perfect baby pink, akin to Barry M Strawberry Ice Cream. It took 2 coats to get the opacity you see here.

Next, Ridley Road, yummy mint green, not dissimilar to Barry M...Mint Green... Again, 2 coats.

Then I added stripes with Atlantic Road, baby blue, very Blueberry Ice Cream-ish.

I love these polishes! The texture reminds me of woodchip wallpaper! I was singing this song all day when I was wearing it (showing my age now, but it could have been written about me ;) )

What do you think of this texture trend? I'm loving it!

  1. woodchip wallpaper thank I've been trying to think of what these polished reminded me of :)

  2. I actually really dislike this texture trend, I don't know why but I just can't get into it.
