REVIEW | Barry M Confetti Nail Polish with Swatches


When Barry M sent me these Confetti nail polishes to review I thought they would be super fun, and they are.  Other brands have done a similar confetti polish like the L'oreal Colour Riche top coat in confetti. The main difference between them is that these confetti flakes are long and rectangular in shape where as the L'oreal one for example is round. 

Personally I like the shape of these a lot better. They seem more like confetti to me.

I have been wearing them over natural nails for summer, I think it looks fab. They also look good as a top coat over any number of colours.

Try them on your toes too!

They last really well, I kept them on for 4 days with no chippage. Be prepared to give your nails a bit of a scrub to remove or use the trusty glitter polish removal technique with tin foil here.

The shades are

Mashmallow
I found this colour to be quite subtle. The pink confetti almost has a pearly look and it is very girly. Would look loverly over a white or any pastel shade.

Liquorice
Simple black and white. Probably my least fave cos I am more of a colourful type of gal. Perhaps I will wear it more in the winter. Would look fab over a silver polish.

Sour Apple
I love the name of this one. I think it goes so well with the colours. Would look lovely over a pastel or neon yellow.

Bubblegum
This is quite similar to the sour apple, if I had to choose between them I would probably go for the Sour Apple because it has more of a mixture of colours. Saying that I tried this on top of a bright orange and it looked amazing!

Dollymixture
Another super cute name that goes perfectly with the colours in this confetti. I wouldn't be surprised if this was the most popular of the 5 because it is totally perfect for summer. I like wearing this one over clear nail polish. But it would look great on the tips of a bright blue!


Which one is your favourite? Will you be buying any of these?
