Barry M Blue Glitter

I've never really bothered with glitters before but when I used the Barry M Red Glitter for the first time last week for its insanely festive properties, I really thought I should explore some more glitters and decided to get the blue glitter too next time I was at the shops since I prefer blue to red anyway.

I've been in looove with this polish since I bought it last week. I don't know why, but I just want to wear it all the time! It's a practically impossible to remove with just NP remover and cotton pads, but I've been using the 'foil' method which makes the whole process so much easier. I also find that after wearing it for a while, it quite easily peels off. I wouldn't recommend this as it's really bad for your nails but I'm a picker - I pick at everything - so I find that I can't help myself!
In these pictures, I'm wearing two coats of the Glitter over one coat of Barry M Cyan Blue.

And a close up...

And soft focus to see all the glimmery, glittery goodness...

I don't think the colour underneath is absolutely necessary as two coats covers the nail with glitter quite well.
This is a gorgeous polish and is guaranteed to get your nails noticed, just make sure you're committed to removing it after since it really is a nightmare without the foils.


  1. This is gorgeous! Reminds me of the new Milani glitters. I've never had more of a PITA removal!

  2. Glitters are one of my favorite kinds! LOVE!

  3. What a pretty blue colour! Thanks for the swatches! :)

  4. Reminds me of Gosh - Blue Monday but prettier!

  5. I normally don't like glitter but this looks sooo cute! :) I like how the glitters look bigger than usual. <3

    I'm personally inviting you to join my giveaway. Shoe clips! :)

  6. What exactly is the "foil" method?

  7. Christina - the foil method is an easy way to remover glitter nail polish.
    Basically, you soak a piece of cotton wool (or whatever you normally use to remove your polish) with acetone or nail polish remover.
    Then you place it on your nail and wrap your fingertip in foil. Leave for about 5 minutes and slide it off - it should bring most of the glitter with it.
    I read somewhere that the foil stops the remover evaporating quickly, leaving it there to soak the polish and soften it up.

    Hope that clears things up! I will try to do a tutorial soon :D
