BarryM Textured Effects in Countess

BarryM is my all time faaaaave high street nail polish brand! I first heard about their new Royal collection after reading a post on AshlyLondon's blog. I was very intrigued by this collection as I had tried the previous Textured Effects polishes and hated them..as you can read here. But after seeing the gorgeous range of colours that BarryM were releasing, I really was keen to give them a try.

I went for the shade Countess, a pretty dark purple with flecks of gold, pink and peach in it. It screams AUTUMN to me and as soon as I saw it I knew that I had to have it! My Mum actually described the colour as one that she "could wear all winter". 

I must admit this now; my opinion of the Textured Effect polishes has changed dramatically. This polish applies well, doesn't get stuck on the brush and drip down at inappropriate times, and it's finish is dazzling. It is so easy on the eye that my Mum's opinion is starting to reflect in my own...this polish is definitely going to be one of my A/W essentials and I can't stop looking at it.

Top work BarryM - I knew that you wouldn't let me down.

Lots of love, Steph xxxx


  1. This looks like a gorgeous colour! Just perfect for this time of year :)

    If you ever find your textured nail polishes to be a bit too textured when you apply them, try applying a base coat on top of it, followed by your top coat. This can help smooth it out a bit, especially if you use a base coat specifically designed for ridge filling.
