My Favorite Barry M ~ Polish of the Month

Posted on: November 20, 2013

Chocolate Brown by Barry M is exactly as the color suggests, it is a chocolate brown. This polish was sent to me by my friend Carla a few months ago and I’m just now getting around to wearing it, but I know it will be a favorite from now on. This is with 1 coat of polish, I ususally always use 2, but 1 coat was more than enough. I did add a quick dry top coat. This is day 2 of wearing and I’m so pleased with the wear and the shine. Normally with a dark color there will be tip wear but not so with this one. I haven’t done much housework these past 2 days but I’m going to do laundry and dishes so I will update if Chocolate Brown chips or has tip wear.

You all know what a fan I am of Barry M Nail Paints and I want to thank my friend Carla for sending to me. I cannot have enough of Barry M! What’s so funny about that is my friend who lives in London is a total fan of Revlon brand and not as enthusiastic as I am about Barry M. We should switch countries! he he

The formula on this one was a bit thick, I think that is part of why I had complete coverage with only 1 coat. Barry M has a complete line of cosmetics and is sold in drugstores in the UK for £2.99 which would be about $5 with the currency exchange, if I did my math right. I have ordered from the Barry M websitewebsite direct and I have ordered from Amazon.com. I was extremely happy with my purchase from Barry M. My package arrived in 4 days and even with the higher shipping rate to the US I still paid less than $10 per bottle. But if you just want a bottle or 2 I would recommend the Amazon site. I just recently ordered 2 bottles, black and navy, and it cost me $24.41 for the 2 bottles. The best way to keep the cost per bottle down would be to get with a friend and place a large order with Barry M direct and split the shipping costs. I just want my American readers to know that it is possible to get your hands on a bottle of Barry M.

(This photo was taken by my niece Charli, who I hope is okay with me using this photo here. I did not ask her permission because I obviously thought it was taken by the photographer, sorry Charli. It is a beautiful photo, like all your photos. You are a great photographer as well.)
Another wedding photo. This is just as they are getting ready for the kiss. It was such a fun day!

💄 As always, thanks for stopping by!

What a sweet photo of Jilly and Bryan! Thanks for showing. I love wedding pics. 🙂
Chocolate Brown looks great on you Judi. I agree that this is a pretty shade and I’m glad you like it.


Momma! Charli Girl took that picture, not Alex


Thanks honey, I will change it. I hope Charli doesn’t mind my using. Do you have an email for her?

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
