NEW From Barry M: Matte Nail Paint (But Not Too Matte!)

Barry keeps on churning out the nail varnish collections as quick as One Direction churn out a new piece of merchandise – they just keep on coming, with no relent! While other brands are still focusing on pastel hues and tropical shades fit for the beach, the new matte collection of colour from Barry M is much bolder and keeps colour at the forefront this summer. Available in six new colours, these shades are quite a departure from the nude shades currently available. However, what excites me is the new texture they seem to have created here – mattes are traditionally quite chalky and dull, creating a finish on nails that looks like it’s going to chip off at any moment. These matte polishes aren’t totally shine free, making them much more exciting and wearable.

The finish still has an element of shine, without the exceptional glossy finish of a traditional polish; the result is a much more interesting texture, and one I haven’t previously seen from other brands. If you love the idea of a matte nail but there’s something about it that doesn’t quite float your boat in reality, then these matte polishes could definitely be one to check out. Together red, pink, purple, blue, turquoise and olive create a bold and wearable collection that can be worn all year round. All the colours apply easily to the nail, drying quickly and leaving a true-to-colour finish in only two coats. In my opinion the finish is much more sophisticated than a glossy nail, making colour more wearable. For the first time in ages I’ve wanted to wear a colour that’s neither nude or pastel…

The new shades of Barry M Matte Nail Paint will launch in June priced £3.99 each.

    Oooh, I LOVE Barry M nail paints so I'm definitely going to buy some of these. The lime-y and the purple are my favourite colours out of the selection but I think they are all gorgeous! x

    I really like the colours of these and I don't really suit matte nail polish so these might be worth a try 😀 Thanks

    Gorgeous colour selection – Barry M are really nailing (if you'll pardon the pun) with their releases lately! I'm glad they're not too matte, I really don't like matte nails (no idea why).Emiy xx Beauty Bunny
