Well f**k me pink

Hey all,

Barry M released these Retro polish bottles to celebrate their 30th birthday a while back. I was dying to get the blue polish but they didn't have them in my shop. Thankfully you can get them on the Barry  website now so I might have to buy the rest of this set.

 Barry m retro pink (or Hot pink sunshine as it says on the website) is a gorgeous deep pink with a metallic finish on them. Honestly, I only put this on so I could move it from my untried section :P Turns out it is amazing and now one of my favourite polishes ever. Who saw that one coming? not me!  Pink is just a bit tooooo girly for me. I feel like a bit of a fraud wearing it ( Weird I know but it just doesn't feel right!) I think the metallic finish really made a difference. The polish really pops on the nails and it constantly catches your eye throughout the day. It's a little deeper in real life and far more gorgeous that my pictures show. There are 5 other polishes on the website but I could have sworn there was a dark and a light blue in it aswell. Maybe I was dreaming or spaced out or something....

I have on two coats of Barry m retro pink. I topped it off with a coat of Seche vite. Application was perfect. It glided on and I had minimal clean up to do afterwards. The brush is thin so it pretty much suits every nail shape. I wish it had more of a curve at the bristles instead of a square top though. I always find it hard to get a nice curve around my cuticles with square headed brushes. Other than that I have no complaints. It dries really quickly and lasted a whole week without chips or tip wear  There is a gorgeous shimmer mixed in with the pink that really sparkles when you catch it in the right light. I wish it was easier to capture on camera! Everyone should check this out.

The Barry m retro paints cost £2 on the Barry m site. I am going to get the blue (electric dreams) and the red (lady in red) soon. They look stunning, especially the red and they have the same metallic like finish. Gorgeous!
