Barry M Nail Paint in "Coral"

Posted by on Thursday, January 27, 2011

I was all geared up for the gorgeous, flourescent coral that I saw in the bottle, but unfortunately it didn't translate that way on my nails.

 It just pulls really orange on my skin. Nothing wrong with that. I just thought I was getting a coral :P It's still traffic light flourescent, which is cool.
That's about all this polish has going for it. It has a pretty poor formula, mildly streaky and takes quite a while to dry. It began to chip the morning after I'd painted it. No thanks.
It's ignited a coral lust I didn't know I possesed, though. I want to check out the MUA coral polish, looks interesting. Probably will have a better formula, too.


  1. Gorgeous colour! :) The Barry M formula seems to be a bit hit and miss. I have a favourite colour, but the formula is like painting syrup on my nails! :/

  2. Rimmel have a good coral. Coralicious.

    Btw I did a perfume post dedicated to you a coupla days ago. Just in case you were too dedicated to RE and ranting that you missed it! ;o)

  3. Thanks for your comment, Cosmtics Aficionado!

    I agree with that, Gemx. At least they're not too expensive so you can afford to make mistakes.

    I'll note that down. Jaljen, you're so bad for my wallet :P And yeah, I've just read and commented! Thanks :P

  4. I have the same problem - every coral I've tried looks orange on me - and to my silly camera. We won't give up though, will we? Looks great on you anyway!


Hi! I'd love to hear from you :)
