My Favorite Barry M ~ Polish of the Month

Posted on: December 11, 2013


Barry M Nail Paints in Cappuccino and Chocolate Brown. Once again, for my favorite Barry M posts I did a half and half manicure because I couldn’t decide which one I liked best, I like them both and I think they look good together. You guys all know I’m crazy about this brand of polish. It is a UK brand, made in the UK so we know right away it’s cruelty free, which is always a plus for me. It’s available at a couple of places here in the states, the Barry M website with prices of £2.99-4.99 a bottle but a flat rate shipping fee to the US of £25 brings the per bottle cost up depending on how many bottles you order. Amazon..com usually has a limited amount of Barry M with prices starting at $10 per bottle plus shipping. Ninja Polish also carries a limited supply of Barry M along with some other great UK brands like Model’s Own.

Chocolate Brown was sent to me by my friend Carla who lives in Germany. She said she doesn’t see Barry M too often there, but I’m glad she found this Chocolate Brown one for me. The formula on this was thicker than usual and I had full coverage with 1 coat. I did use a quick dry top coat. I’ve only had it on for a day and so far no chips or any sign of tip wear, which is amazing for such a dark color.

Cappuccino is a lot like Commander in Chic without the purple undertone. I like this color a lot. The formula wasn’t as thick as Chocolate Brown but I still got great coverage with just 1 coat. Albeit a thicker coat than the other, but still just 1 coat coverage.

Thanks again to my friends in the UK who were so kind for sending me the Barry M polish I have. I’ve bought a few bottles but mostly they have come from such nice people in the UK. Thank you, Thank you!

💅 As always, thanks for stopping by!

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
