Barry M | Aquarium Collection in Mediterranean & Treasure Chest

Hi everyone, today's my Birthday. I've been so spoilt and having a great day so far. For my Birthday post, I thought I'd share with you two of the beautiful nail paints recently released by Barry M, as part of the Aquarium collection.

The Barry M, aquarium collection is my favourite release of the year from Barry M, so far, with some potential polishes being an almost dupe for the beetle juice collection from Models Own. I picked up (L-R) Treasure Chest - A chunky glitter top coat with gold and pink flakes and my favourite Mediterranean - a duo chrome polish, almost like a sunset on your nails with pinks, golds and a slight tinge of orange all in one and dries with a beautiful shimmer. Almost like a sunset on your nails. 

The collection is made up of six nail polishes. Four duo-chrome and two chunky glitters and retail at £3.99 each.

Mediterranean is so hard to photograph, but, it looks stunning in sunlight and in person. Treasure chest and Mediterranean look perfect together. Med is quite sheer and the formula is a little thinner then other Barry M nail paints, even though you can get away with two, just, I'd definitely apply three for a better coverage.


  1. I love these polishes, they look gorgeous! The finish of them is so lovely :)

    1. Thank you, Beth. If you do or have bought the med polish I'd advise you to use a dark polish after base and before applying the med version, this will create the two tones effect better and save you a lot of polish - on it's own it needs quite a few coats x


Thank you for taking the time to comment, I read every single one of them. If you have any queries don't hesitate to email me at or for a more prompt reply, head on over to Twitter or Instagram @ABritishSparkle.
