Beauty Review: Barry M Nail Paint in Raspberry

There are some days when you want a trendy nail polish, and other days when you want a more classic colour. Barry M Nail Paint has a good mix of both kinds of shades and today I plumped for one which fell nicely in the middle - Raspberry, which in the bottle looks like a dark pink bordering on red. On the nail, however, as you can see, it is much more of a dark red shade - this is three coats for consistency across my polish reviews, but in the bottle it's a lot pinker

The one thing that really annoyed me with this shade was that it marks something chronic - if the edge of my nail stroked across a piece of paper at work for example then it would have a huge powdery red streak on it, which isn't great when you accidentally do that on important documents. That said though what it does have going for it is durability. I wore this for three days before I got bored of it - because, let's face it, it's not that exciting of a colour - but on the third day it was still as if I'd just applied it so I reckon I could have got at least another couple of days out of it.

Ultimately though, this is not a shade I'd be particularly keen to hang on to - it just feels a bit too ordinary and safe for my liking, and the marking is one of my main issues with it so for that reason if I were to keep it I'd wear it at weekends or when I knew I wasn't going to be on the early shift or didn't have to handle documents that were going to other people at work. If you fancy picking some up though Barry M is available in Boots and Superdrug and costs around £2.99 a bottle.
