Barry M Matte Crush

I showed my mini haul a while ago now, when I picked up a load of the new Barry M polishes and wanted to try them out. I have never been a lover of matte polishes but I do like to try something different every now and again and Crush seemed like a perfect colour for Autumn. I had also spotted the new limited edition polishes in Superdrug but didn't get one as they looked too similar to polishes I already had. The limited edition ones in Boots though are much more Christmassy, this one called Tinsel Town on the Boots website, is similar to the Confetti polishes and has red, green and blue glitter strips, perfect for Christmas.

Although very red in the bottle, crush dries into a much browner shade. I do like the colour but found it chipped on the ends of my nails within a couple of hours, something I always have a problem with when not using a top coat. I'm not keen on the mix of matter and glitter here but I do like the look of Tinsel Town over this kind of shade. 
If you pick one polish for a Christmassy manicure this year, I think it has to be Tinsel Town, it really does remind me of tinsel and got me a little excited for Christmas. Its going to be our first Christmas in the new flat and I can't wait for us to get our own tree and decorate the flat. 

Are you feeling Christmassy yet? Have you tried any of the new Barry M polishes, yet again they don't disappoint! I hope the new Matte range doesn't mean they stop making new Gelly polishes though!


  1. I've not seen that glitter before, looks like it will be nice over a couple of bases as well :)

  2. I think its the limited edition one, I think it'll be perfect for Christmas, I want to try it with a gold base, think that'll be lovely :)
