Barry M Speedy Quick Dry Nail Paint

Monday, 16 February 2015

It's Manicure Monday!
A couple of weeks back Barry M announced a new collection across their social media and I just couldn't wait to get my hands on it!
The Speedy Quick Dry Nail Paints come in 9 gorgeous pastel shades which are perfect for spring, and will set you back a tiny £3.99 a piece (Superdrug are running a 2 for £7 offer right now - Just sayin').

I (eventually) settled on shades 'Lap of Honour' - an adorable dusty mauve polish, and 'Road Rage' - a perfect dusty mint polish with grey undertones - which I always seem to sway toward this time of year.
I love the design of these polish bottles. They are the classic 'Barry M' square shape, but the lid has a super cute chequerboard pattern, which I assume is to give the impression of a race track flag - but for some reason it gives me a retro vibe. Either way its cute and a definite winner!
Each polish has a Racing themed name too - so sweet!

The polishes in this collection come with a new flat shape brush,  which means they fan out and give an easy application.
Obviously, the idea of these polishes are that they dry quickly, and  I certainly agree that they do. You really do need 2 coats of each colour to make it opaque and streak free, but I still found that everything was fully dry and hardened in just 10 minutes! 
The formula is fairly thick - but not so much that its all gloopy, it's just right to give it a shiny finish with speedy drying time.

You can see in my swatches above that 'Road Rage' is a really lovely spring shade. I love that it is bright but not too bold - it'll give even the plainest of outfits a spring overhaul and I think 'Lap of Honour' will do just the same - it will look particularly lovely on darker skin tones!
The swatches above each have 2 coats.

This collection launched in Superdrug on the 11th Feb and will launch in Boots on the 18th Feb, so you can pick them up now and get into the spring spirit!
