Barry M are on a roll this summer. I feel like I was just talking about their brand new Makeup Brushes and Summer Hi-Shine Gelly Nailpaints then – POW! – they have only just gone and released something brand new! I don’t know about you but I’m certainly feeling spoilt for choice right now especially because these new nail paints are limited edition (and you know how much of sucker I am for anything limited edition).


Barry M Summer Matte Nail Paints range (RRP £3.99) comes in 6 eye-popping matte colours named after 6 different tropical cities; Malibu, Miami, Waikiki, Rhossilli, Copacabana and Cancun. If you loved the first Barry M Matte nailpolish collection that came out in September then chances are you will love these summery shades.

Personally I’m on the edge about this range as I personally don’t like a matte finish on my nails but I do love how bright and eye-catching Cancun, Malibu and Copacabana are and these still have a bit of a shine to them so I can still wear them without feeling like I’ve dipped my nails in sand but there are still some things I do quite like about the formula. I like that it doesn’t dry to quickly so you are able to get a decent finish in two coats and that you don’t REALLY need a topcoat so if you’re as lazy as I am, you can slick two coats of Waikiki and go about your day.

The Barry M Summer Matte Nail Paints (RRP £3.99) range is available to purchase from your nearest Barry M Counter, Boots, Superdrug and ASOS.
