I'm a bit late to the hype on this one. I've had these for months but just forgot to blog about them. Better late than never right?! Barry M's Aquarium collection is amazing. There's cool tones and warm tones and then two glitters in the collection. A total of six polishes so if you're like me and have to have every new collection then it'll be a great addition.
First off you've got the three cool shades which are blue tones and we all know how much I feel about the colour blue I'm obsessed.
Pacific is a gorgeous vibrant blue which I absolutely love. Possibly my favourite shade. It's metallic and is less duo-chrome than the other blue toned shade in this collection.
Arabian is a gorgeous turquoise/green toned blue. This one is the one that changes the most due to how the light hits it out of the two blue shades. It's gorgeous and is very different to what I have in my collection.
This glitter is a gorgeous glitter with particles of green, blue and silver. It looks great on both of the polishes above and it's found a nice home in my nail polish collection.
You can see just how stunning they look on the nails. The first photo is without glitter and the second is with glitter. I only decided to do two nails with glitter and really liked how it came out. I adore these combination. You know me I love my blues!
Moving onto the warm shades in the collection, just as gorgeous and a must for any lovers of pink polishes!
Mediterranean is a gorgeous vibrant pink with undertones of gold and a slight sparkle. As you can see it leans more to the warmer tone of polishes which is great for those of you who love warm toned polishes.
Caspian is a beautiful rose colour with undertones of gold in it. It reminds me a lot of the metal flip colours from Miss Sporty that I adore there's a very similar shade to this in that collection. In some light this looks almost lilac, sometimes green, sometimes beige, gold and pink. It honestly depends on the light. It's one again another more duo-chrome polish which is stunning.
This glitter is called Treasure Chest and I love this one. It's got rose glitter pieces and gold glitter pieces. Effectively it's a rose gold glitter and looks stunning on the nails. It looks amazing with Barry M's gelly hi shine rose hip (coming in a later post) but you'll see how gorgeous it looks paired with other pinks. This is a must I feel for any collector of nail polishes.
With and without glitter. The top photo without, and the polish looks good on it's own gorgeous. Second photo with glitter again I did the same thing as I did with the blues and stuck to just two nails with the glitter. The glitter looks good with both colours and it is seriously stunning. I own a variety of pinks but I feel these are different to what I have.
I would totally recommend this collection if you love duo-chrome and metallic polishes. They're all gorgeous and will look great combined or on their own. The polishes themselves retail at £3.99 each which is standard price for their collections. Formula is really good and they're long lasting as all polishes are from Barry M. I'd really recommend these if you don't already have them in your collection! Find them here.
have you tried any of these?!
