My Barry M Nail Paint Collection

It's no secret that I'm a massive fan of nail varnish.I can't go into Superdrug or Boots and come out without buying a new one! My all time favourites are the Barry M Nail Paints. I own 44 in total!!!! And so I thought I would share my collection with you! 

Without Flash

Magnetic Effects

L-R: Violet, Sparkle Blue, Red Sparkle & Multi Sparkle

I absolutely loved these when they came out, however I think the hype died pretty quick! However I love using the diagonal striped pattern at Christmas with Red Sparkle to create a candy cane effect!

Other Effects

L-R: Kingsland Road, Ridley Road, Gold Foil Effects, Black Magic Crackle & Burgundy Croc Effect

I love the colours of the Textured Effects and although I wasn't too sure about the texture to start off with, they have grown on me. I also love the Foil Effects as they give a really bold colour and are great for jazzing up an outfit. Finally are the Crackle Effects and although these have the potential to look great, I've never really been impressed. And by the looks of things the Black Magic Crackle paint is well past its best!

Limited Edition - Christmas 2012

L-R: A & B (how boring!)

I love the nail paint on the right for Christmas. It's a mix of red, blue and green glitter discs and looks great with a red base. 

Normal Paints

L-R: Red Wine, Yellow, Pink Flamingo, Strawberry Ice Cream, Shocking Pink, Raspberry, Bright Purple, Berry Ice Cream, Blue Moon, Indigo & Clear

I love the range of colours Barry M do in their basic range. Shocking Pink was my first ever Barry M purchase! And don't ask why I own a yellow nail paint, it's definitely not a favourite of mine and has only ever been worn for fancy dress!

Gelly Paints

L-R: Lychee, Papaya, Dragon Fruit, Blueberry, Passion Fruit, Prickly Pear, Pomegranate, Green Berry, Mango, Blue Grape, Blood Orange, Watermelon & Plum

I think it's safe to say the Gelly range have to be my all time favourites! I own 13 out of the 18 available shades and love them all!

Matte Paints

L-R: Vanilla, Mocha & Crush

These are one of the latest additions to the Barry M collection. I wasn't sure how I would feel about the Matte appearance as I love the Gelly range so much, however I was pleasantly surprised as they make a nice change. Since wearing them, I have had so many people at work asking me about them!

Glitter/Metalic Paints

L-R: Gold Mine Glitter, Diamond Glitter, Magenta Glitter, Denim, Emerald Green & Silvery Lilac

Finally, no Barry M collection would be complete without some glittery paints. The only thing I don't like about glittery paints is that they are a pain to get off! Both Emerald Green and Silvery Lilac are metallic shades. 

So there you have it, my rather large collection! If you would like to see swatches of any of these shades, let me know in the comments below. I thought it would be too much of a mammoth task to swatch all of these shades in this post and most of you probably know what they look like!

What is your favourite Barry M shade? Do you have a big collection of one nail paint brand? 


Please note that this is NOT a sponsored post and all nail paints have been bought with my own money with the exception of a couple that were give as birthday presents in previous years.
