Review | Barry M Summer Matte Nail Paint

 Barry M Matte Nail Paint* £3.99 each

If this gorgeous weather doesn't make you want to wear all the bright nail colours then nothing will! Matte nails are a love or hate sort of thing but Barry M have created a Summer collection that is so up my street it's changed my mind on the matte nail look.
Barry M have extended their matte nail line with 6 summer shades each named after a tropical hot spot. It's a bold and bright collection that's going to have you in a bit of a dilemma over which shade to go for first!

Copacabana - a bright red with a coral undertone
Miami - a perfect pink that reminds me of a flamingo
Rhossili - a stunning pink toned purple that is bang on trend as orchid is the colour of 2014
Malibu - a gorgeous bright, cornflower blue
Cancun - a tropical turquoise teal shade with a green tone to it
Waikiki - a yellow toned lime green

I love all the shades so much that for once I don't have a stand out favourite! They are all stunning in their own right and are getting a lot of love from me lately.

The formula is great, two coats gives a completely opaque finish that dries quite quickly. They aren't completely matte so if you aren't sure if you'll like a non gloss finish then it's worth giving these a go. They still have a hint of shine to them and if you just pop a normal topcoat on top then you can turn them to a gloss finish.

The Barry M Summer Matte Nail Paints are out now!
Are you a matte nail fan?

*pr sample, review 100% honest as always


  1. I love this formula, I have a more neutral shade. This new selection of shades is exciting! :)

  8. The shades are very similar to the hi-shine range, just in matte form. I wonder if, using the newly released matte top coat from the brand the shades will look exactly like these. Think I'll pick it up and put it to the test x

  13. These colours are gorgeous for the summer. I think matte nails are such a nice trend! x

  14. I don't really like matte nails but the shade malibu looks gorgeous so I'd probably pop a coat of gloss on top.

  16. Rhosilli is a lovely shade but I'm thinking it may be a bit too dark for the summer months, I'll have to save it for fall!

  17. I'm not fan of matte nails but I love that blue shade, it looks really pretty!
