I FOUND IT! Barry M 'Berry Ice Cream'

When the Spring nail polish shades were released by Barry M, nothing really caught my eye. Pastels were everywhere and I was tiring of milky, washed out nails. I passed them by many times without even a glance. Everyone in blog land was going nuts for 'Berry Ice Cream' - a vivid pinky lilac creme polish - and many were scouring Superdrug and Boots for it with no luck. I'd seen this elusive shade in Superdug, swirling the bottle in my hand I wondered why this it was so popular and popped it back on the shelf. But then...

I couldn't stop thinking about it! There must be a reason for it's popularity, right? Maybe it had an amazing finish? A super duper formula? I joined the army of girls looking for 'Berry Ice Cream' and regretted putting the bottle back when I'd first seen it. Finally, last week I saw it in my local Superdrug (they have an MUA stand there, too now!) and like a fat kid with cake, grabbed it with my greedy hands and clung on to it for dear life.


Now I see what all the fuss is about! 'Berry Ice Cream' is pretty darn unique. Yes, it is pastel, but it's also very bright - a few steps from neon. In the bottle you see a milky, boring pastel purple, but on the nails the pink tones burst through and brighten up the entire polish. I love creme polishes; you could probably get away with only one coat of this with a steady hand. 'Berry Ice Cream' is a super wearable, girly shade neutral enough for school or work but bold enough for a night out - very versatile, a great addition to my collection!

Available from Boots and Superdrug for £2.95, keep your eye out for '3 for 2' offers!
