Barry M Series #5 | Sequin Nail Effects

The sequin nail effect polishes are made up of three different shades pink, white and black. Each one is filled with small sequins the white and pink contain multicolored sequins where as black is just gold. The three polishes are all quite sheer so I decided to find three polishes that matched almost exact to the sequin effect polishes before applying them. The sequin effect nail polishes aren't ones to be layered with numerous coats inside the texture is a gritty sandy effect which spoils it a little because with numerous coats it creates are a clotted feel. And sometimes the sequins aren't spread equally as you'd like. I did however do two coats of the sequin polishes as you can see with the black it's got quite a clotted feel and it's hard to see the gold sequins. The pink isn't as bad but you can still see that clotted almost tacky feel to it the reason behind this is because of the sandy texture inside the polish. I however love the white one, this turned out the best and the texture was the smoothes especially with a coloured base applied before the sequin effect and also with a top coat. I wouldn't have any worries about wearing the white and if you wish to try these then I'd go with the white first. I think it's by far the prettiest too. I think they should re-do the formula without the gritty feel, these will sell better and people would prefer that I think.

£3.99 each

    1. Wow this post is messed up wasn't like that in drafts. I missed you too. That wasn't taken purposely lol I actually just did this for natural light. I actually did this post ready before the heatwave we had a month ago. Yay that's fantastic, you've probably seen but I have new glasses wooo xx

    3. I gave a sneak peak of them on a post I did it was a haul my last one I believe. The glasses are only taken off the site. I haven't had chance to even think about doing a post since getting my glasses just over a week ago. I've got a zillion books to give my thoughts on, to many in fact. xx
