NOTD: Barry M Blue Moon

Posted on: August 27, 2013

Blue Moon from Barry M is one of the Barry M polishes I have wanted for a very long time. I kicked myself for not ordering the time I ordered directly from Barry M’s website. I’ve always wanted this polish because I love the light blue color with a slight pink shimmer but also I’d always heard this was a great dupe for CHANEL Riva. I know Barry M did a dead on dupe for Paradoxal so I have high hopes for Blue Moon and CHANEL Riva being similar. Notice I said similar, not dupes. I can’t call it a dupe unless I can see them both with mine own eyes. I went to my favorite blog for CHANEL swatches Carla at caramelfrappe who has the most amazing collection of CHANEL nail polishes than even CHANEL themselves. Here’s her picture of Riva:

I should have looked at her swatches first and I would have held mine the same, but this picture shows it better and you can see the slight pink shimmer in this picture.

To me they look like they could be dupes and the difference I see in the color could be the different lighting. Dupes or not they are both beautiful polishes and I am so happy to have finally got my own bottle of Barry M Blue Moon. I bought it fromamazon.com for around $11.50.

I love Barry M nail paints as you all know and with the mailing situation it is getting harder and harder to get, but I have a great collection thanks to some great friends so I think I’m good, for now. They are always coming out with something new and different. You know me, I like different!

💅 As always, thanks for stopping by!

Blue moon was one of the polishes the Post Office destroyed 😦 I am still so mad at them! Glad you found a way to have it, but wish you could have had that one!


Those are both beautiful polishes. Pale blue and Tiffany blues are my favorites. Thank you so much for your blog. It must take a long time,but I really enjoy your posts.

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
