Barry M nail paint in Raspberry

I was given a bottle of this as part of my secret Santa present from the beautiful Abby, but just never got round to using it until this morning.


Out of all the nail varnishes I own, this was the quickest and easiest to apply. The brush is a little smaller than the Nails Inc one so it was easier to control where the polish went and consequently it was really easy to get a neat line at the cuticles and almost none went on my fingers.

With flash

As the name suggests its a gorgeous ruby red colour with a hint of pink, and is very pigmented so you only need one coat to get a rich even colour. It also dries to a glossy finish so you don't need a top coat although after taking this photo I added a coat of No 7 so strong nail varnish as I find it helps nail varnishes to stay chip resistant for longer.

Without flash

I am seriously impressed with this nail varnish and am planning on trying a few other colours from the range, hopefully they'll be just as good.

Are you a fan of Barry M nail paints?

  6. I like Barry M for the price and the colours, but I bought a yellow nail polish and then my nails just stayed yellow. I had to wait for them to grow again to be clean, so I'd suggest using a base coat.

  12. I have this colour also and it's gorgeous! Really wintery and I love it. Barry M nail paints are so affordable and they're really good for long lasting too. Mine will probably stay chip free for a whole week! And at £2.99 each, you can't really go wrong!
