Barry M - Matte nail paint in caramel.

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a good bank holiday weekend! Today I am going to review one of the Barry M Matte nail varnishes in Caramel. I love a matte nail varnish as they look good and are a really simple nail effect to do.

I got the shade Caramel which is a nice nude colour which looks professional and goes with anything! When applying it can be a little streaky but nothing too major and if you are in a rush I think you could get away with just one coat. However I like to use two coats as I feel it makes my nails look neater and does get rid of any initial streaks from the first coat.

What I really love about this matte nail varnish is that the dying time is really quick! I am super impatient when it comes to waiting for a nail varnish to dry and always end up smudging them, however this nail varnish dries completely within 5 minutes! 

Another benefit is that I also find this nail varnish lasts longer than most and doesn't start chipping until about day 4/5, so I like to use this when I know I'm going to have a busy week ahead. I did team up this Matte caramel with a Barry M limited edition gold sparkle nail varnish which I think goes really nice over the top.

Barry M has a lot of matte nail varnishes out now so you have a great colour range to choose from, I also own the colour Burgundy crush from them and they are at a great price of £3.99. You can buy this nail varnish and the rest of the collection here:

Unfortunately they don't sell the limited edition glitter top coat anymore but I think Revlon nail varnish in Tweed Woven would look great as a top coat as well. You can buy that here:

What do you think on Matte nails?

  2. I used to use Barry M all the time but haven't in a while, should probably try using them again. Love the colour :)
