Textured and Matte: Countess and Caramel

Good evening lovelies

Middle of the week already! Where does time go? I wont lie... I am exhausted already! I recently recruited 10 new staff into my Norwich based office and just keeping up with them all is enough to tire anyone out, not to mention one 'gentleman' left after a day so I need to go through the recruitment process again! Grrrr!!

Oh well at least I have lovely nails to make me feel better :-)


On all nails except my ring finger is two coats of Barry M Countess. This beautiful textured polish is part of the new Royals collection and is my favourite out of the three I have so far.

On my ring finger is Matte Caramel, another new Barry M collection and one of my first actual matte polishes. This colour blends too much into my skin tone for my liking but looks lovely paired with Countess.


The below picture is taken with the flash on... just look how the gold, pink and orange glitters really come to life in the textured Countess polish.


This pictures shows two layers of top coat added to Countess, The shiny top coat really brought the purple in the base to life and look how the pink glitter contrasts so nicely. LOVE !


Final picture... with top and with flash. Stunning!


The Barry M Textured polishes are amazing from the new Royal collection. This one is a firm favourite of mine so far and just perfect for those days when you dont have time for nail art but still want an 'unusual' look

  1. Countess is stunning! I ordered two polishes from the Royal collection and I think I should have ordered Countess, too. Caramel matches your skin perfectly!

    1. Thanks sweetheart. It really is a stunner. When I applied a nice thick top coat and stamped over it I couldn't believe the difference! Definitely a polish to add to your collection :) xx

  3. Definitely going to get Countess! I bet the Caramel would be great as a base for a black or white lace look stamp! Good luck with the new recruits xx

    1. Thanks Maria. I had a good day in terms of recruitment today :). I love lace stamping, I have the latest Pueen plates and so many of them are lace or love themed so just perfect for me :-) xx

  5. I love that BM are doing textured polish now, they look so much nicer than all the plastic-y finished ones.

  6. Countess looks gorgeous, I picked a few of these up a while ago but still haven't used them! After seeing this I think I need to.
