Barry M Glitter Swatches

Hi all, hope you've all had a good week!

I can't believe it's the start of February already! Time seriously flies when you work full time. I still haven't settled fully into a decent routine, which is why my posting is still a bit sporadic, so more apologies from me!

Today I have swatches for you lovelies of all the Barry M glitter polishes I bought in December.
Base Coat: CND - Stickey
Base Colour: W7- Black
Glitter: Barry M - Special Edition Glitter (2 coats I Think)
Top Coat: Sally Hansen Advanced Hard As Nails

Here's some swatches over black and white polish. These are all one coat, some thicker than others.
Barry M - Special Edition Glitter - SLE 2012 (1)
Barry M - Pink Sapphire Glitter (2)
Barry M - Yellow Topaz Glitter (3)
Barry M - Rose Quartz Glitter (4)

I love the little micro holo glitter that exists in Rose Quartz Glitter (4) & Yellow Topaz Glitter (3). These two are basically the same glitter, medium coloured glitter, holo micro glitter, but Yellow Topaz Glitter has medium holographic glitter too.

The Special Editon Glitter (1) has no holographic glitter at all but the mix of colours is really nice, however, looking at these photos it seems like the green glitter in it looks like it's started to curl.. Pink Sapphire Glitter (3) has pink holographic medium glitter, and holographic bar glitter with some fuchsia micro glitter.

Do you have a favourite from the bunch? Expect to see a lot more of these, I'm really loving glitter at the moment!


  1. Great glitters! So annoying that the Royal Mail crackdown is making it hard for me to get these pretties. :(

  2. They are beautiful, but I do prefer the Special Edition...

  3. I have the limited edition wasn't sure I liked it but now that I see your colour combo I will try it again lol. I have gold mine glitter and its awesome but really hard to get off!

    1. I've actually never wore SLE over anything but black, I wonder what it'd look like over something else.

    2. I think i'd like it over plain colours with no shimmer or anything in it something that shows all the colours of the glitter. I might try it over a dark purple or something :-)

  4. Yellow one is really pretty :)
