Blue Moon

Hopefully everyone had a great weekend!

Tomorrow is Monday, and summer classes start. No break from Spring semester unfortunately, but I'm sure (and it better be) worth it.

Today I have this pretty mani for you! Thanks to Abbie from AbbieNail. I received this in my first international swap. I wish we had Barry M in the states. Man! Actually there are so many polishes in the UK that the US is missing. How sad. For the UK readers, are there polishes here in the US that isn't easily accessible to you?



Showcased above is Barry M Blue Moon. This is such a beautiful glossy pale baby blue. It sort of is jelly-ish and quite sheer. For me, this mani required 3 coats. At 2 coats it was still streaky, so 3 did the trick. I love the way it looks. I'm not really a blue person kind of polish, but I can definitely do this one. The one thing I was a little disappointed by, as you can see in the last photo, there is a very slight blur-ply (blue-ish purple) shimmer to it in the bottle but did not transfer on the nail. Before swatching it, I knew already that it wasn't going to show up once I polished it on my nails. However, I really enjoy this color. I can't want to try out some more Barry M's.

What do you think? Do you own any Barry M polishes that you would suggest?

  3. Aaaah, Blue Moon looks beautiful! Nice job on it! I am so bummed we don't have Barry M or Model's Own here. Oh well, I'm sure there are lots of neat things we have here that are hard to get elsewhere.

    And booo about no break between spring and summer... I am working on my thesis, so I don't have a break, either... I find it very disconcerting, the way the semesters just run together! At least you are using your summer productively, right?

  5. I live in the UK, and there are soooo many polishes that we can't get easily over here...Zoya, OPI and China Glaze are the ones that most come to mind, but it's frustrating that, if I see a polish I like on a blog, chances are I won't be able to get it. Or if I do want it, I know I'll have to pay a huge amount over the odds for it online. But UK polish is good too (the grass is always greener, isn't it?)...I don't seem to own a lot of Barry M, but I do like it a lot (I have my eyes on 'Indigo' at the moment). And owning 'Fantasy Fire' is nice (as well as knowing I can get some more if the tiny bottle runs out. So there are my thoughts on the UK polish selection! Love the blog. x
