SILK

 Barry M Silk Collection - £3.99 Each Boots

 When I saw these nail polishes new in my local Boots and on offer 3for2 I hastily picked them up by colour, I didn't actually read what they were about I just loved the colours so bought them. On using them I realised they're actually a matte finish...which is fine if you like that on your nails but I don't personally really like it. The name Silk to me would imply a glossy shiny finish...and Satins are usually more of a matte finish so maybe the name satin might have been a bit more appropriate haha!! The colours themselves I absolutely love and they have a slight shimmer and pearl likeness to them...to be honest despite what I have moaned about above...these colours are great...and one easy and quick solution is of course...to topcoat it!! Which is what I've been doing...and these are definitely perfect colours for this season...I don't know if I would go out of my way to buy these again, but they are nice!! Have you tried them? p.s The whole matching Buddha thing was just a happy coincidence... They're from Urban Outfitters. Have a good week beautifuls!

  2. I actually love the matte finish though likewise, I would expect something glossy from the name 'Silk'!
    A friend has this really gorgeous silver sparkly Barry M nail varnish but I literally can't find it anywhere!! So frustrating.

  3. These colours are absolutely gorgeous and I nearly picked them up myself in the 3 for 2, the other day, but having read your review, I'm glad I didn't - I'm not a huge fan of a matte finish on my nails, either, so I would've been a bit disappointed! The Models Own 'fruit pastel' range have some similar shades and a really nice finish, if you were on the look-out for an alternative and haven't tried them xx

    The finish is really lovely on these polishes. In love with pastels, I need more pastel in my
    life.
