SEE I told you I would have a post up today! Better late than never I suppose.

Barry M Cosmetics is a company from “across the pond” meaning England of course. In fact they claim to be the UK’s #1 cosmetics company! They were also voted Best Inexpensive Nail Polish in In Style magazine for 2009. They have over 400 colors in their cosmetics line and a very wide range of products, which greatly contributes to their popularity.

A word about formula. Great! These were really smooth, even and thin going on. I liked the brushes, they weren’t too wide or narrow and the wand was the perfect length for me.

I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to review some of their nail polishes and really liked what I saw. I have heard on Twitter recently some people having problems getting their orders or getting ahold of the company. I have had these for awhile and I didn’t have any issues. Hopefully things have worked out for you guys! Peep ’em out!


Neon Pink

Neon Pink is an extremely bright pink, but not what I would classify as “neon”. It has a nice shimmery finish that flashes blue. This was three coats.


Block Orange

Block Orange is a great traffic cone orange creme. This is the kind of orange that I can wear, it’s not too warm or cool, just right. This was three coats.


Bright Purple

Bright Purple is just that It’s a bright medium purple creme with hints of pink undertones. This is really pretty but not necessarily the most original color I have ever seen.


Racing Green

Racing Green. I saved the best for last. This is a really gorgeous “mermaid” sea green with gold and blue shimmer. It’s the kind of green I classify as an under the water color and I love it. This was three coats.

Overall I liked these a lot and would love to try out some more of them. They do ship to the US so that’s good news! You can find these and their other products here and the polishes retail for about $5.00 each.
