Barry M have released two limited edition nail paints for Christmas 2012 which you can only find in Boots.
They were released on November the 28th and you get one free when you spend over £6 on Barry M products.
The colours are called Christmas Pink and Christmas Gold. Superdrug are also going to have limited edition colours of their own on the 5th Dec, which I am also looking forward to.
To try them out I painted my left hand with the pink and my right with the gold and did the ring fingers in the opposite colour.
I think they look really pretty and will be perfect for any parties over the festive season. I have a few ideas of how I want to use the gold one.
They remind me of the foil nail paints except a foil made up of tiny pieces of shimmery glitter. This gives them a glittery textured look.
They applied quite well. In these pictures I used two coats. One coat covered well but when I held my fingers up to the light you could see light coming through a bit. I always prefer to do two coats anyways to help get an even coverage.
They also seem to be quite durable as they have not chipped or worn at the tips at all since I painted them on the 28th. However I have a feeling that they may be more like glitter nail varnish when I come to remove it.
I also love the lids on the bottles. They look so cool and shiny lol. They relay do reflect the product inside. If you are a Barry M fan like me then these are a must.
Looking closely at the gold you can see a fine gold shimmer with a slightly bigger and darker shade of gold in there as well as a fine silver shimmer.
In the pink as well as the fine pink shimmer you can also see a fine silver shimmer and the slightly bigger gold flecks in there.
