Barry M Polishes

I've been wanting to try Barry M polishes for a while and I finally got some in my swap with Sara.

Vivid Purple, Dusky Mauve, and Nail Effects.

This is 2 coats of Vivid Purple.

Vivid Purple is a deep, blackened purple with purple shimmer.

I love deep purple polishes so this instantly became a favorite.


This is 2 coats of Dusky Mauve. 

Dusky Mauve is a grey-brown based polish with purple shimmer. It's supposedly a dupe for Chanel Paradoxal. 

The formulas on these polishes were very good!

I should compare this to my Revlon Perplex...

This is 1 coat of Nail Effects over Dusky Mauve.

Nail Effects is a black crackle polish.

I've compared this polish to OPI Black Shatter and China Glaze Black Mesh and it seems like the Barry M polish has more of a "broken" effect.

It looks like a dark broken egg.

I hope you enjoyed these swatches!
I am very impressed with Barry M Polishes and would love to try more.
Enjoy your Monday~
