Barry M Foil Effects in Gold
Having been obsessed with nail wraps recently for their easy application, non chipping, non smudging, long lasting finish and available in so many colours and designs, I was quite intrigued when Barry M brought out a new range of 'foil' nail polishes that claim to give the same effect as the wraps.
Available in both silver and gold, it applies like a regular nail paint and requires only one coat. Don't get me wrong, I love their nail paints, and I don't know if it's just me who has been unlucky with them being opened, closed and tried on by others whilst on the shelf, but I find them extremely thick to apply and no so 'quick drying'.
I am slightly disappointed, I still like the effect it has given, but I don't think it gives the same foil finish as the wraps and isn't really any different to your average metallic gold or silver polish. I applied my black shatter over the top, hoping to get a leopard print look, but ended up with something that looked a bit more like tiger stripes! I do think it will be lovely for Christmas though and I haven't actually got anything like this in my collection.
Barry M Foil Effects are available to buy in Boots and Superdrug stores or online for £3.99 each.
