Matte Red Nails

BARRY M matte nail polish in COPA CABANA review swatch photo

BARRY M matte nail polish in COPA CABANA review swatch photo

As part of their Summer lineup Barry M released a bunch of additions to their Matte range. I personally though it was a bit weird to release a matte range for summer as to me matte nails are more of a A/W finish in my humble opinion. Regardless, I was instantly drawn to the shade Copa Cabana the peppy bright coral red. It looks fresh and funky and I actually really like the matte finish - It adds a new edge to such a classic nail shade.

Ps. Sorry for my terribly grown out acrylics and poor painting skills!

  1. Such a lovely colour! I completely agree with you though, to me matte nails are more suited to a/w! x

  8. It is a beautiful colour but I really don't think the matte kind of style nails suit me. Maybe I can experiment in the upcoming months with a few darker shades to see if I can make it work!

    Great post!!

  9. It's a lovely colour but I just don't get on with matte polishes, I find that they chip so easily without a topcoat but adding a topcoat would defeat the point... first world pains!

  12. How to restore a broken relationship and marriage

    My name is Wendy Streeter from the United States of America and am here to share a testimony i would please want you to read careful. I was married for seventeen years until misfortune came in. My husband and i were living happily with our children and enjoyed the company of each other. Our eldest daughter eloped with her boyfriend and this cost my husband his job because he could no longer concentrate on his job and this almost tore our home apart. My husband lost his job and we were living on the little income i was making from my cabbage. This really tormented our home cos my husband loves her more than our other kids. I tried all i could do to make my husband happy even when i wasn't happy. This happened for sometime and he had cardiac arrest. We spent virtually all the money we had and still the condition did not improve. I was left with no choice than to sell the stuffs in our house, I was able to realise some money which was spent on his medical bills. I did this for a while until we had no money on us again. We came home and was hoping he could get better. He continued like that for some months and we decided to seek for solution else where. I went online where i met many self acclaimed doctors and spell casters but none could help. I then came across this particular caster whose testimonies i have read. His name is Dr.Brave he promised to help and he did in a way i find very surprising to explain. He told me that he would cast some spells to make my daughter come back and to get my husband his job back. It was like an impossible task. But with the help and intervention of this prophet of GOD, my daughter came back home and saw her dad was sick and she cried and asked for forgiveness. My husband after a week became whole again and another spell was cast to get him his job back. Like a dream it happened. My daughter is back home and my loving husband is well again and now has his job back. So good people of the world i want you to help me in saying a big thank you to Dr.Brave for his intervention. This is one Dr i will seriously recommend for anyone with issues of such nature or any other problem. Simply contact him on his email via bravespellcaster@gmail.com,or kindly visit he website http://bravespellcaster.yolasite.com .

  22. I’m really not a fan of matte nails! I have tried to love them but always end up putting a top coat on to make them glossy! Love this shade though!

  30. I just can't get on with matte nail varnishes. I just get the urge to put a nice glossy top coat on! I love that colour though. I have it in the non-matte version and it's my favourite nail varnish!

  31. That is such a beautiful colour. :) I was wondering how you edit your Instagram and blog pictures because the effect is so beautiful. I love that style and have scouted the web for good editing apps but I can't find any good ones or easy ones to use.

  32. This is such a lovely colour - I bet it looks amazing with a tan! Definitely agree that matte polish is much more a/w, but somehow this colour works?!
