New Barry M Nail Polishes: Gold Foil, Silver Foil and Gold Crackle

319 Silver Foil

I picked up 3 of the latest nail polishes from Barry M. They are 319 Foil, 320 Foil and 321 Nail Effects. Keep reading for my reviews & swatches!

319 Foil - 2 coats is a Silver Foil nail polish. It looks like aluminum foil on my nails, which I find brightens my skin and it is quite flattering. The only problem is that brush strokes can be quite obvious. It is my favourite out of the three that I picked up.

320 Foil - 2 coats is a gold foil nail polish. It leans towards the green-ish side of gold. I don't find it appealing on my skin, even though I tend to love golds in general. I think it might look better on someone fairer skinned or with cooler undertones. Like the Silver foil, brush strokes are quite obvious.

321 Nail Effects is a gold glitter shatter. To be honest, I was not too impressed. I was hoping it wouldn't be as glittery and gritty. I didn't think it looked particularly good with the Gold and Silver foil as on my swatch above, but I also can't think of any suitable nail polish base colours to wear this with. What do you think?

 Here are all 4 swatches together:

I believe you can purchase this at your local Boots or Superdrug, or the Barry M websiteWhat do you think? ♥

    I actually quite like the gold glitter shatter, and think it'd look good over a black base, or even red/gold for a more festive theme =)
    A deep purple colour would look fab underneath the shatter too! =)

  2. I like the gold and silver, as the other person mentioned i think it would look great with a darker base like black or purple!

    Pretty colors. Gold and silver are my favorite metallics.

    nice ;))

  5. They look really good!

  6. Aw it's so sad how the most gorgeous metallics are so streaky : (

  7. They look really nice but I'm not really liking the shatter polish. Besides that my favorite is the gold foil

    the cracked ones would look amazing with black underneath :)

  10. I wasn't impressed with the shatter polish either.

  11. Yes :( But with a steady hand, the streaks will be more even and wont look too bad though! :)

  12. I'm glad you like them!

  13. I love metallic colours too. Gold and silver are also very wearable :)
