Three Series : Barry M Autumn Nail Paints...

Ok, so it's not officially Autumn yet but that doesn't stop me anticipating it's welcome arrival.  We had a really good and hot Summer, but I'm ready to revel in all that Autumn has to offer, for it is without a doubt my favourite season.

 These new Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paints from Barry M were released just last week and  scream Autumn, that's why I chose these three...

L-R Cocoa, Mustard and Paprika

Just look at those colours! They're are just Autumn in a bottle. They remind me of Autumnal leaves, bonfires, hot chocolate, spices and the sky at dusk. *sighs*

There are six shades to chose from altogether which include a grey, a green and a red but I have lots of nail paints in those shades already so I was good and just chose three.

First up we have Cocoa...

Cocoa is a super opaque rich chocolate brown. I cannot get over how thick this is. I applied two coats but you could probably get away with one! This would be great for those who don't fancy a shade as daring or dark as black. I love this one!

Next up is Mustard...

Mustard is just that. A beautiful mustard shade. Definitely one of my favourites if not thee favourite. Again it is super opaque and easy to apply. Two coats were applied but you could get away with one. I highly recommend this one.

Last but not least, it's Paprika...

Paprika is for you spicier gals out there ;-) A fiery browny orangey-red which is perfect not just for Autumn but for winter too.  This shade is showing a tad more red in the photo than it actually is. It didn't want to reveal it's true colours for some reason, despite me taking many, many photos (God knows I tried)! As with the other two, this is super opaque and two coats were applied. This one is potentially a favourite.

I am really impressed with all three shades that I picked. The formulation of this Autumn range seems much more opaque than previous Spring/Summer colours (and I was impressed with those!) 

The choice of colours is bang on and Barry M have totally captured the essence of Autumn. I just can't decide on my favourite but it's between Mustard and Paprika!

Barry M are my absolute favourite brand of nail polishes. They're so affordable, there are so many to choose from and they constantly bring out new and exciting ranges and products.

I got mine from Superdrug in Brighton retailing at £3.99 each and they were on a 3 for 2 offer so I got all three for £7.98! :-)

These are available from Barry M , superdrug and Boots but I am sure only Barry M online and Superdrug stores are carrying this new range at the moment.

What do you think of these?

Will you be picking up any of them?

Please leave a comment below and let me know.

Thanks as always for stopping by.


  1. Love the look of Mustard... have nothing like it in my collection! Also I'm always weary if I suit anything mustard clothes wise so this is a safer option. Will be picking it up for sure :)
