BarryM Silk Polish Review

I’m gonna start by saying this polish will divide fans right down the middle. It isn’t an easy polish to get along with. Like many non-gloss finishes it takes a bit of painting technique to get a good finish, but for me it was so worth it.

The colours – the Silk Collection comes in 9 colours. The one I chose was Meadow – a pastel blue/green that I totally fell in love with. All the shades are beautiful light and feminine colours which are just perfect as spring approaches. Each of the colours has the wonderful ‘lit from within’ sheen that creates the ‘silk-effect’ as opposed to your average matte finish.

The finish – In these pictures I did three liberal coats of polish. I know, I know, three coats is at least one coat too many when it comes to most polishes but it’s such a tricky finish that one coat looks streaky, two coats look uneven but three is just perfect! One tip I’d give is to make sure you streak the brush right down the centre to finish – even on the last coat the brush strokes are still visible and this will help get an even finish. No need for a topcoat either which will save a little time, and the dry time is also quick.

Availability and price – you can get BarryM online from their own website , or in-store at Superdrug and Boots. RRP £3.99 Just look out for the bow on the bottle lid.

You’ll hate it – if you like to polish and run

You’ll love it – if you’re looking for a reasonably priced textured polish that’s perfect for spring
