Cobalt Blue (Barry M) again

Cobalt Blue. You might have seen this before on this blog, although ages ago. Rediscovered it lately and still love it. These are better photos than in 2011. 😉 Actually, Cobalt Blue is so very bright and flashy that photos won’t do it justice.






[Barry M] Magnetic Blue

Finally, another Barry M varnish and, moreover, a magnetic one. When I was at Manchester Airport last Tuesday, I could no longer resist; my first steps regarding magnetic polishes weren’t that great but I was eager to try it again and also liked the pattern that is shown on the lid.

Here are swatches; I admit, second try. :mrgreen: On the middle finger, I held the magnet too close and so they bumped… but overall, you’ll recognise a magnetic pattern, I hope! Magnetic Blue has a wonderful shade, and the Barry M magnet is great and quite a strong one; it didn’t take too long for the pattern to turn up and everything was easy to handle. So I can fully recommend the Barry M magnetic polish range.

Baby Blue and Turquoise

I got my hands on Dior Saint-Tropez (401) but unfortunately can’t do a swatch – the wheather is still cloudy and thus, it’s a bit dark in the flat too. However, the shade is a beautiful turquoise, and I did a quick bottle comparison.

Chanel Riva, Chanel Nouvelle Vague, Dior Saint-Tropez, Barry M Pure Turquoise.


Saint-Tropez has a slightly bigger proportion of green in direct comparison with Nouvelle Vague, but it is as creamy as Pure Turquoise, while both Chanels have this subtle shimmer, which becomes nearly invisible after application.
