Barry M Textured Nail Paint- Kingsland Road and Ridley Road
Nail innovation seems to have taked another interesting direction for 2013 and we are seeing different interesting textured surfaces and bigger brands catching up with indie brands. This is the latest offering from Barry M- textured nail effect.
I picked this up in two shades: Ridley Road- a sweet ballet pink and Kingsland Road- mint green. Both shades are opaque in two coats and have a fairly average consistency (you know, not too thick not too thin... just right!).
In the nail paint you can see that there are little bits of grit, but these don't really affect the application process- it is only when it begins to dry you see the surface become uneven and texturised. The product doesn't need a top coat on it- it will smooth the surface and you will loose the grit effect.
Personally i'm not sure if i'm the biggest fan of the texturised finish, it's a cool idea but I kind of think that it just looks like I didn't let my nails dry before bed and I ended up with sheet prints. I'm also not sure if other people would 'get it' and may just think that they are a bit messy.
However for 4.99 each you get a nice, cheap, effect to play around with and you can always smooth it out with a top coat. Currently, they are on offer at Superdrug, 2 for £6.00.
Have you tried this? What did you think?
