Molten Metal: New Shades from Barry M
*Contains PR products*
Barry M recently got in touch with me to see if I wanted to do some Halloween-y looks using some of their products. As you can imagine I was very excited, and eagerly replied with a big fat YES! When my parcel arrived with all of the PR goodies, I was gobsmacked - they have been incredibly generous.
I thought that before I dove in and got all spooky, I could buckle down and do some swatches and reviews. What better way to start than with the following four pretties, the new colours from the Molten Metal Collection.
Molten Metals by Barry M have been around a while, they are very popular and its easy to see why. These polishes have a multi chrome effect, mixed with a foil like finish, and sparkle. Whats not to love?!
Let’s take a closer look…
Of course I had to have a play with the pink first, though admittedly and quite surprisingly it didn’t turn out to be my absolute favourite of the bunch. Having said that it is such a gorgeous polish, very pink with golden iridescent shimmers and sparkles, all in all very stunning. It can be built up to full cover in 3 coats, though if you wanted a more sheer look, you could get away with 1-2 coats.
As with all Barry M polishes, these all have rounded flat brushes which make for the easiest and tidiest applications.
I’m so annoyed with myself because it was such a challenge to capture the pure beauty of this colour in a photo. You should have seen all of the shots I took, and they all came out the same! It is a magnificent multi-chrome, shifting from blue to green to pink and purple. Celestial Silver also has some chunkier holo flake for extra glam and sparkle.
This one is my favourite. Not normally the kind of colour I would pick out of a bunch, but I am hooked! It is a lush, dark pinky-purple colour that has been filled with golden shimmers that create a wonderful effect and finish. I can see this one being flying off the shelves, especially leading up to Christmas - party season!
Last, but certainly not least, is Crystal Blue which comes in at a close second as my favourite. It is a gorgeous turquoise blue with green and gold iridescent shimmers.
All of these molten metals have a perfect formula, so easy to wear and apply, can all be built up to full cover in 3 coats, and all look beautiful on the nail. They are available HERE at a more than reasonable price of £3.99, which to be honest I think is a bargain!
Thank you so much for reading, and keep an eye out for more swatches, posts and Halloween designs…
Love, Leanne Xx
