NOTD: Silvery Lilac from Barry M

Posted on: October 4, 2013

Silvery Lilac from Barry M is an odd color. In the bottle it looks like the name Silvery Lilac but on the nails it has a green cast to it. Silvery Lilac is a duo chrome polish with a lilac base with silver shimmer running through it. When applied to the nails it looks more like a green base with a golden shimmer. The formula is very sheer, these pictures are with 3 coats and I can still see a bit of VNL. I try to always show polish with 2 coats but this was way too sheer for that. It seemed like it took a long time to dry. Can you tell I’m not a fan of Silvery Lilac? 😁

I may not be a fan of this particular shade from Barry M but I am a super fan of Barry M nail paints as a brand. This is a drug store polish, only available in the UK, but the quality is comparable to department store brands. Barry M is made in the UK and they never test on animals. (The UK is one country that has made it illegal to do animal testing on cosmetics).
Where to Purchase:. I have purchased from Barry M’s website and was very pleased. The shipping is high, a flat rate of $25 to the states. I received my package within 4 days of placing my order. I ordered a few bottles for $2.99-3.99 each and with the shipping cost the price was just under $10 a bottle.
You can also get Barry M nail polish from Amazon for $10-15 a bottle.
Either way I think Barry M is a very good brand and worth trying, if you haven’t yet. I don’t know if I would pay $15 a bottle for it but I would pay $10, obviously! If you do try, or have tried Barry M nail polish let me know what you think of it in the comments below.

💅 As always, thanks for stopping by!

That’s disappointing,but I guess you were bound to come across one you would not like.I was tempted today to buy OPI I Knead Sour Dough,but I swatched it on some tape and came home.Revlon Foxy is so close that I am glad I resisted!Linda xo


You were smart to do that. I wish I’d done that on about 50 or so colors that I seem to buy over and over! How are you and more importantly how is your husband? I’ve been thinking of you and I hope all is well.


Chris is doing OK.I’m getting nervous as Oct 18th gets closer(surgery date)That swatching/tape thing is something I am doing more and more because I buy so many similar colours, too.Thanks for thinking of us.:) Linda xo

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
