Barry M Silk Nail Paints Autumn/Winter 2014 Review and Swatches

Hey everyone! Two posts in one night, aren't you feeling lucky! I felt like it was probably about time that I began to catch up on posts as I've barely posted this month. Having started a new job, trying to balance uni, and trying to run my blog and also trying to have a social life is proving difficult. I'm doing my best but I am falling behind with posting and I'm really sorry about that. 

Anyway, today's second post is my review of the recent Autumn/Winter Silk collection that Barry M released to add to their Spring Silk collection. The original silks had a gorgeous matte finish and these are no different. I think these are a little different though as they seem to have more depth to them and they also look really enhanced with topcoat. I've shown you both with and without topcoat in my swatches to give you a comparison, and you can decide for yourself which you prefer.

Forest* is a deep emerald colour. This was 2 easy coats. Shown with and without one coat of topcoat.

Poppy* is my favourite from the collection, you've seen it in my monthly favourites and in the remembrance day nails I posted last week already so you know I love it. This was 2 very easy coats. Shown with and without one coat of topcoat

And finally is Orchid*. This is the least shimmery of the three but it's still a beautiful colour. This was 2 coats. Shown with and without one coat of topcoat

These retail at £3.99 each and can be bought in Superdrug, Boots, Tesco or on the Barry M website now.

 What do you think? Let me know in the comments!
