Inspired by An Caisteal Ruadh (Redcastle in Scottish Gaelic), this is an oxblood red jelly polish with a mix of gold and silver flakes and copper shimmer that screamed halloween to me, and made the perfect based for a blinged out spider!
You might think I’ve posted enough Barry M polishes this week. You would be wrong though, because there is no such thing as too much Barry M. Today I have three new additions to the core range on a bit of a colour theme too.
I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with glitter polishes. I am a bit of a magpie, so I do gravitate towards sparkly and shiny things. I’ve never been completely sold with glitter on my nails though, possibly partly due to the removal aspect but I think I also tend to prefer wearing more subtle or sophisticated polishes. I’m also not a fan of the ‘lets throw a bunch of glitter in a bottle and give it a cool name, that’ll sell well’ approach.
Today I’ve got some lovely Rimmel Kate polishes. Perhaps you saw a sneaky post from me when I accidentally hit ‘publish’. I haven’t done that for ages so I suppose I was due a cock up. Anyway, the polishes. These are all dark polishes, which after the Rita Ora pastels makes me really happy (I might have mentioned I’m not a fan of pastels once or twice). I don’t know if the collection is called ‘Planets’ because it seems to be unnamed, but the polishes all reference a celestial object. So on with the swatches…
Barry M are back with some more silks for winter. The spring silks caught me by surprise a little because I loved them far more than I thought I would. Pastels aren’t really my cup of tea though so I was excited to see more silks for winter, but in some very festive colours.
