Nail Of The Weekend #1

Barry M's Mushroom
Nothing beats a relaxing evening after a oh so 'busy' day at work painting thee nails for the weekend. Yesterday evening I decided, after much deliberation, to paint my nails a brown and decided on Mushroom from the famous and much loved Barry M line.

I've never painted my nails this colour before, odd I know since it's been in my collection for a while now, but I regret not doing it as I truly do love it. It's such a beautiful taupe brown that is perfectly suitable for the Autumn and Wintery months. It has a lovely low shine finish which can be enhanced with a good topcoat. I can even see this colour being used during the Spring and Summer since it's such a wearable, season friendly shade.

I used only one coat of this polish, after being a good girl and filing and using a base coat, because of how opaque the colour and formula is. The polish covered the nail easily and had a fairly quick drying time which didn't result in any accidental smudges. To note, the Barry M polishes brush is a lovely size and truly helped with the quick, hassle free even application.

To finish off I used Barry M's Basecoat Topcoat and Nail Hardener for extra protection and added shine.

I am extremely happy with the turnout of this polish and can easily see it being a staple in my collection for the weekends and seasons to come.

So what are your opinions on this nail polish from Barry M? Do you have it in your collection? Do you fancy adding it to your collection? Let me know in the comments below :o)

To note, I am not allowed to wear nail polish to work and that is why this post is called 'Nail of the Weekend #1' ;o)
