barry m jewel britannia

barry m jewel britannia: boots / superdrug / barry m (£2.99)

Red, White and Blue

A new addition to my always growing glitter topcoat collection is Barry M Jewel Britannia. A fun, clear based glitter packed full of small particles of silver glitter and then layered with large chunks of red, blue and silver. Brought out as part of the Jubilee and Olympic celebration's here in the UK, it's a limited edition shade so be sure to snap it up soon if you're looking to purchase it as I can't imagine it being around for a whole lot longer. For the purposes of the blog post I've layered it here with Revlon Red and Ciate Snow White (Im sure you can tell which is which!) but it is actually opaque in about three coats so you could go for full on glitter nails or just simply to a full coat accent nail!

  10. Really like the glitter but find Barry M polishes don't last long at all!
    I once had a bad experience where the bottle smashed on some expensive bed covers so I've stayed clear since!

  11. This is such a lovely glitter! The Revlon red is gorgeous too - I barely ever wear reds!
    I just hate how difficult glitter polishes are to get off - cry cry!

  25. Cute blog! This is such a pretty mani! I've been feeling the urge to do my nails. I have such a hard time with that though. At just 34 years old, I already have arthritis, and I can never keep the dang thing still, and I get it all over my fingers! I've been typing since age 15, and writing since 7...it's caught up with me! It's not severe by any means, but it does make it difficult to paint my nails. I definitely don't think I'd be able to do something like this to myself, I see lots of really neat manicures all the time that I'd love to do, I just can't do it myself.

    Anywho, sorry for the rambling. I'm Sarah, stopping by for the first time! I've really enjoyed my stay and look forward to coming back often. My blog is Skylar Magazine, would love it if you would stop by sometime! You are welcome to guest blog if you'd like? If you are interested let me know!

    Have an awesome weekend!
