Barry M Frosted Cupcakes Collection - Review and Swatches

Hey everyone! It's been a while since I did a review of a full collection but I loved the Barry M Frosted Cupcakes Collection* so much that I felt they deserved their own review. I'm a bit slow on getting it uploaded, but I still wanted to show you these gorgeous polishes. There are 4 in the collection, one of which you will have already seen on my blog with these nails, but I think they'd all make gorgeous bases for nail art. They're lovely subtle colours but the specks really work with the colours to create a lovely collection. I also love the names of the polishes, they feel very English and cutesy and they fit the collection too. It's nice to find some names that actually slightly make sense because I do feel that brands get carried away sometimes when naming polishes!

Earl Grey* is a lovely muted grey, this was 2 easy coats without topcoat and as you can see they're smooth and shiny without topcoat, not textured at all. 

Strawberries and Cream* is a gorgeous baby pink. This is the shade I used for my frosted daisy nails, and I absolutely love this colour. This was 2 easy coats without topcoat and it dried fast and shiny. 

Marshmallow* is a slightly off-white colour. This was 3 easy coats without topcoat, again it dried fast and shiny, and wasn't textured at all. 

Blue Velvet* is a beautiful baby blue. This was 3 thin coats. I have used this in some nail art but I'm not 100% sure I like the design so whether or not it will see the light of day still remains to be seen. Shown without topcoat but it dried fast and shiny. 

What do you think? Have you tried any of the collection? Let me know in the comments!
