Barry M Crush swatch

Is it just me, or have the Barry M elves clearly been working over-over-time? They seem to be sending out new collections every week. Amazing!

Now, I have to be honest, the Matte collection isn't really for me; I prefer my polishes shiny, shiny, shiny! Basically, I like to see my face in my nails lol:) But my friend popped round with this and let me try it out, just to be sure. Btw, disclaimer; she came round late at night and we consumed wine. Lots of wine. Hence the total lack of clean up. I apologise, but it didn't seem important after a vat of Sauv Blanc:)

So, has it changed my mind? Well, this polish dries quickly and has a lush suede-like finish, which I liked more than I thought. The bottle the colour is totally stunning, but if I'm honest it doesn't quite translate to the nail. This has certainly turned my head, but it hasn't made me want to rush out and buy the collection, but that's very much a personal thing to me; I think if you like matte, you'll love this (and probably the rest of the collection). 

Btw, if you're wondering what this looks like with a shine, et viola! Here it is topped with Boots Stay Perfect (the best topcoat I can afford lol). Much more 'me'. 


  1. I have to agree with you, I wasn't a fan of this collection when it first came out either. Crush is so nice though, it looks great mattified and shiny! :)

  2. I agree, think I prefer shiny though:) Shiny for the win!
