NOTD: Barry M 318 Peach Melba

(Please excuse the horrendous state of my cuticles - nail appointment has been made!)

Peach Melba seems to be the 'must-have' Barry M shade of the moment, therefore when I saw one solitary bottle of it in my local Superdrug for the bargainous price of £2.99 I decided to snap it up.

Like the name, this particular shade is a really pretty peach pastel (bit of alliteration for you there), but it does need a couple of coats to avoid streaks and get a uniform colour.

The problem with this (as with most Barry M nail paints), given that the polishes have quite a thick consistency to begin with anyway, is that the more coats you apply, the thicker the finish of your polish, and thus the greater liklihood of it peeling off!

I also find that Barry M polishes usually need a top coat in order to achieve a high-shine finish, but other than these minor points, I really like the range of paints available for a really affordable price.

  1. Despite the work that goes into the polish, that color is gorgeous :) I don't have a good peach in my collection but I'll have to look out for something similar. Love!

  2. I think most beauty brands are working pastel-peaches into their ranges as it's a very "now" colour! x x x
