Barry M Countess

Ok, so this is my very first textured polish* and boy, was it worth waiting for!

To start, it goes on very easily. I have no idea if that's the case with other texture polishes, but I was really pleased. The picture below is 2 coats, totally opaque!


It leaves you with a gritty brown, filled with flecks of gold and purple and a reddish tone in some light. Very pretty. The texture is actually tolerable, even for me. However, I do love my shine and smoothness........

.......so I added 3 (yep, 3, it's very textured lol) coats of Boots Stay Perfect Top Coat. 


Oh yeah baby! It really brings out the gorgeous flecks of gold and purple, just stunning. I couldn't stop staring at my nails, it was like having bejewelled conkers on my fingers:)


Wow, the close up makes it look like burning embers. Drooooooooooooooool.


Swoon - I might have to buy the rest of the collection if this is anything to go by:)

* some of you may remember I bought the Barry M White Sequin polish, which was also textured. But I've been trying to wipe it from my mind, so as far as I'm concerned, Countess is my first texture polish lol:) 


  1. Ah, all good texture polishes should apply like a dream! All mine do. I also have this and I just adore it, its such an unusual colour but great for autumn

    1. Ah that's good to know, I'm encouraged - I'll have to buy more now lol:)
