I don't usually review beauty products but I wanted to do a quick post about Barry M's new magnetic nail polish range.
It can be hard to find nail varnishes that don't chip or take forever to dry-especially when trying to avoid the inevitable duvet imprint before bed-but Barry M has always impressed me. As nail brands go it ticks all the boxes: dries quickly, is reasonably priced and stays on for far longer than brands such as Rimmel, 17 and Topshop's range.
The Magnetic polish comes in 4 colours; I chose the dark silver shade (£5).
As I always do I started with a No. 7 base coat to stop the colour staining my nails and then applied my first coat of Barry M.
Once the first coat was dry I applied a second, as instructed, then immediately placed the magnet over my nail to create the effect.
The lid doubles up as a magnet and has a raised ridged to rest on your finger. I found it took a fairly thick second coat or even a third to create the desired effect and the magnet has to be applied straight away unless you want the look to be very subtle.
I was actually really pleased with the finished result. If you want something a bit different but aren't a pro at nail art, this is the perfect alternative and three days on there isn't a chip in sight.
