Barry M Sequin Effect Nail Paints: £3.99*

I am sorry if you are sick of me harping on about the new shades from Barry M but I thought I'd share my thoughts on another of their new ones the Sequin Nail Effects. Now I'm normally all for new nail trends, and when I read the press release for these I thought they'd be more like glitter polishes. I thought that the mainstream nail brands were finally taking something from indie brands and creating some polishes with unique glitter combinations. When in fact the Barry M Sequin Effect Nails are actually textured (concrete) style polishes with glitter suspended in the mixture to give it a sequin effect, While there is no denying it gives a sequinned look on the nail the texture is horrible and really gritty. Where I was expecting smooth, milky polishes with multicoloured glitter, we get liquid sand polishes with some glitter chucked in. While I haven't painted my nails with these I can only imagine how rough and scratchy they'd be if you caught them on your skin. They feel very rough and not very neat, just a bit blah if you ask me. As you can see from my close up's they just look a bit patchy and quite frankly really odd.

In all, I'd pass on these. They aren't that good and the results aren't all that pretty in my personal opinion. But if you love nail trends and want something to try then go ahead. I'm overall pretty disappointed with these but as the saying goes one persons trash is another's treasure! I think if they were regular polishes I'd be all over them but unfortunately they really don't float by boat! I cant see this being a very popular launch, but If you do like these, then they launch on May 8th and retail for £3.99.

  1. These won't be the most popular new nail launch I don't think. It's kind of really unattractive. It reminds me of the liquid sand polishes combined with glitter. Weird...

  3. I don't really like these to be honest. They look really odd swatched!

  4. I love the black one! So edgy and different! But they definitely don't look like what I'd expect a 'sequin effect' nail varnish to look like.

    1. As I mentioned within the content of the post I don't like them and wouldn't personally wear them. I've swatched them for the purpose of people who are thinking of buying them as the effect they give are totally different from what they imply. Sorry if you feel I shouldn't talk about them without using them but Im sure it might be helpful to some.

  9. I dunno about these! They look kindof mouldy, and like they'd absolutely cement themselves to your nails... Think I'll pass. Glad I read this review as they look like they'd be great just from simply looking at the bottles.

  10. Don't like the finish of these at all. When I saw the bottles I expected to love the pink but the texture effect of the polish just makes them look messy and dirty xx

    ReplyDelete
  11. Oh, I expected them to be a lot prettier from just looking at the bottles, they're nowhere near as shiny as I'd like them to be :(

  14. I really wanted to get these because I thought they'd be 'creamy', but now that I know what their texture is like I think I'll pass!

  15. I am definitely with you on this one, I can't see these taking off, it seems they have tried to go one step further with the textured nail effect but failed. But like you say someone out there may enjoy them, unfortunately its not me though. Great post as usual Lily. P.S the swatches are helpful regardless of whether they are on your nails or not.

  16. I agree with your opinions about these nail paints. I think they look pretty in the bottle, but on application I don't think they look that great! Thanks for the heads up on them tho! xx

  22. When I heard about these I thought they would be a nice milky polish with glitter chunks (like you) but they look horrible! I don't think I'll be purchasing one of these! x Thanks for the close-ups!

  25. I was so excited to see these but the results are very disappointing! I thought they would look more polished but they look so grubby and tacky. A big miss for me and I normally love anything Barry M bring out nail wise

  26. 100% agree with the overall finish with these polishes being disappointing. I must admit even the colours aren't the best. Real shame, but Barry M has come out with some really good summer gel polishes which kind of makes up for these.
    Great post and very informative and honest.

  27. I actually don't know if I'm a massive fan of the effect, I think it looks just very cheapy (I know they are a fairly cheap polish lol), but there's just better effects! I think you're right to pass them up

  28. That's such a shame! They look lovely in the bottle, and if they didn't have that gritty texture, they would be amazing polishes!

  32. I actually think the white one looks really fresh and summery and the weird texture looks alright with that one, it reminds me of ice cream! I agree the finish looks somewhat messy though which shows up particularly on the black one! x

  45. i am actually a real sucker for new nail polish releases and so i'm intrigued by these but unfortunately they really don't look all that nice. like you, i really prefer smooth nail polishes (although saying this, i am planning to review the 4 textured nail effects barry m polishes on my blog very soon...) and these just don't really do it for me. buy i bet, saying this, that i do end up splurging on them just to try them out! oh deary me... ;) X

  48. I was really disappointed with their Gelly polishes launch, found the formula far too gloopy and infact they weren't all that shiny! (I did an accent nail with an original Barry M polish and I actually felt the normal polish had more of a shine!). The colours were lovely but just disappointing on application. I really didn't fancy giving these a try as I'm not a huge fan of glitter polish and have only recently started experimenting with it, but they look awful! Literally looks like sandpaper done in different colours and cut into the shape of a nail. Step it up, Barry M!
