Nail Polish Lottery Club ~ Week 16 ~ Barry M

Posted on: April 28, 2013

Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine in Blueberry was the pick for week 16 of the Nail Polish Lottery Club. (for those of you who don’t know about the #NPLClub go to Facebook and search Nail Polish Lottery Club, all the details are there).

As you all know I seriously L-O-V-E Barry M, I think it is one of the best brands of nail polish I have tried. And I’ve tried a lot! I only wish it was available here. I wore this Blueberry Gelly for about 5 days, I know! A long time for me, but even when I removed it, it still looked freshly done. There was hardly any tip wear, certainly no chips and the shine was still shiny. The formula was smooth, easy to apply and I could have easily got by with 1 coat, but I did apply 2 coats along with SV top coat.

I can’t think of a Barry M polish that has disappointed me, and this Gelly Blueberry was no exception. I paint my nails usually out of boredom, or for a blog post, or just wanting to try something new, but if I was working and didn’t have so much free time, Barry M would be the polish I would wear more often. I definitely give this 5/5 stars! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I want to thank my friends in the UK, Nicky and Diana, who have sent me so much Barry M, I feel very lucky not only for the great polish but for the friendship of both these beauties. Speaking of beautiful women, Happy Birthday to the Beautiful Lori!! You make 40 look good! πŸ˜‰ I hope you have a great day!!!
As a side note, the Royal Mail has really cracked down on the mailing of nail polish from the UK. My friend had a package returned to her without the nail polish she had mailed and a letter warning of the dangers of mailing nail polish. I’ve read on some nail boards that people have ordered from Illamasqua and never received the polish but instead received a letter from the Royal Mail telling them the NP had been destroyed. Keeping all this in mind, you can order from the Barry M website and they will ship to the US. I ordered 6 nail polishes and the total, including shipping was $58. That is less than $10 a bottle, I received my package in 4 days, so I was very happy. The shipping is a flat rate of Β£20, so if you and a friend placed an order you could bring the priced per bottle down. You can also order Barry M from Ninja Polish. Their prices are from $6.50 to $10 per bottle. I did a “fake” order of 6 bottles and it was right around $50 so they aren’t that much cheaper than going through the Barry M site. The Ninja site also carries Model’s Own, A England and a lot of Indy brands so it is worth taking a look at if you are interested in polish from the UK.

Ashley just had her hair done and didn’t like it, I think she looks adorable, even with that puss of a face on!. Sorry Ash, you know I love you more than my luggage!

πŸ’… As always, thanks for stopping by!

Oh! What a bright, beautiful blue!! I looove it!! β™₯ Wow, I can’t believe you wore it for 5 days – that’s quite an accomplishment!! lol Ashley’s hair is adorable! How can she NOT like it?! Also…what a cute phone case she’s got! πŸ˜€


She got that case for $1, she is the princess of thrift, me being the Queen! Her hair is adorable and I think she is beautiful. But of course, I’m a bit prejudiced! πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ
ASH and I were going to the same girl but she didn’t work out for me, I found a new girl and I really like my hair now.
I hope you have a great week Lu!

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
