I love to paint my nails; people seem to have cottoned on then notion that nail polish is the way to my heart. I have so many new shades to try thanks to numerous Christmas gifts. I love to share on the blog what shades enjoy, and on the odd occasion, which shades I don't. Now, it's not often that I find any kind of product that I don't like, but it does happen.
The latest polish that I have tried is Barry M Nail Paint in the shade 'Chilli'. I have to say that the colour is amazing; totally on trend with this Autumn/Winter. It is a warm reddish brown colour that is very similar to the colour of chilli powder. The formula drying time is about average. It becomes touch dry fairly quickly, but is deceptively still smudgy for quite a while afterwards.
Now lets talk about something that I don't like about it. It took me four medium thickness coats to get it to a relatively opaque finish. Sometimes still when I hold my hand in the light, I will see that there are lighter and darker areas. Basically, the formula is patchy like no other. I have not had this problem with any other Barry M Nail Paint to date.
The first proper review of the year and it's for a disappointing product. I usually never write about products that don't work out, so this is practically a first for me. I hate being negative, but if it doesn't work for me then I either make it work or I move on!
