Barry M 'Raspberry' Nail Polish

/ 17 comments
I kept spotting this shade on the Barry M stand, picking it up, twirling it around for a bit, pulling weird 'Should I? Shouldn't I?' faces and then putting it back down...until today. Today I felt festive and cheery and this polish seemed the perfect colour for the season :)

[[ Matches my scarf! ]]

I don't usually 'do' red or pink nails since in my opinion they look amazingly tacky, but 'Raspberry' was just about deep enough for me to pass it as wearable. I think that about sums up the colour - a 'grown up' berry colour, with just the right balance between red and pink. It would look awesome on long nails!

A typical winning Barry M formula - good brush, great texture, fab colour, no dragging, no pooling, opaque in two coats (or one if you're neat enough), average drying time. £2.95 from Boots of Superdrug, who also both have 3 for 2 across all cosmetics right now - ideal excuse to top up your makeup collection ;)

  7. I have this. I don't wear it often but I agree with you, I find red and pink very hard to do. When I want red I normally go for this or their Red Black.

  9. Beautiful color! I have a ton of old red nail polishes that I'm sick of, but I don't think I have anything like this--more on the dark berry side. xD

  11. haha I do love that this post comes right after your last post about finger/nail woes.

    It is a lovely cover :D I don't ever wear red polishes either (not true reds anyway; I love a good wine colored polish, though) but I agree that this is just dark enough to be wearable and gorgeous.
