☯ Barry M Retro Collection ☯


I apologize for being a terrible blogger lately! I've had so many exams, but now I can VERY gladly say that I have none until May! This also means I can get back into a routine of posting loads and loads again. 

At Christmas my Grandma kindly gave me some extra gifts... woo for christmas spirit!

"Get back to the 80's with our Retro Collection. Guaranteed to bring out your New Romantic, our brightly coloured nail paints are sure to get you noticed!'

I used two coats for Lady in Red, Club Tropicana (coral pink) and Tainted Love.

I really like the colours. In the bottle they look gorgeous, but I feel like when wearing them, they could come off as quite childish... you know, like something you would find in one of those make-up and beauty sets for kids, haha! Despite this, I still loving wearing them. The colours are so fun! My favourite is definitely Club Tropicana.

For some reason the first picture of Material Girl is really really dark. The bottom picture is a lot more accurate! 

I don't really wear bright eyeshadow but I can see me using these at least once, because the colours are super subtle but I've tried to build them up to get a brighter pigment and it's very! 

I'd recommend you get a few bits and bobs from this collection if you like using fun colours!
