Barry M Nail Paint – Fashion Icon

Barry M Nail Paint - Fashion Icon swatch

I blooming love Barry M, they are my absolute go-to when it comes to nail polishes. I love how affordable they are and their selections are always spot on. I don’t think I have looked anywhere else for nail polishes in months. My mum bought Fashion Icon just before she went on holiday, so I thought I would have a little test of it whilst she was away.

In the bottle, Fashion Icon is a bright purple glitter shade with blueish specks throughout. I like my glitters bold, so this looked like it would be right up my street. Lets face it, I love anything purple too, so was always going to steal this when she wasn’t looking.

Barry M Nail Paint - Fashion Icon review

Once painted, Fashion Icon is a lot less vibrant than I imagined it would be, it comes across as more of a Lilac shade. I really thought it would be packed with a lot more glitter too, although I used 2 coats in the above photos, so I have a feeling it may have been a bit better with a couple more. The colour itself is lovely, although a little different from how it looks in the bottle. I don’t mind too much though as it matches my hair perfectly.

I can imagine this being super sparkly in the sun, probably the reason my mum bought it so she could show it off on holiday.

Available from Barry M and Boots.

    This is beautiful! Maybe it would look more vibrant if applied over a plain purple shade? x

    Aww this is pretty! It reminds me of a polish you'd wear on your toes during a summer holiday abroad. ^_^

It’s funny, Monday seems to come around a lot quicker than any other day of the week 🙄
    • Happy Saturday 🌸 I’ve waited all week for the weekend to arrive and now it’s here I’m feeling all content. 💕 I’ve played around with some new makeup and just chilled out. I should probably get some jobs done, but right now I’m happy with a tea in my hand. ♥️
    • I am so glad it’s Friday tomorrow. This week has felt longer than ever. At one point I didn’t think I would ever get here 😂
•
In other news, the Frozen 2 trailer looks so good doesn’t it! 🙌🏻♥️

Hopefully it brightens up soon as I will swapping summer clothes for winter again 🙈
    • As today is feeling super wintery, I thought I would do one of my favourite winter traditions - treat myself to a new pair of pyjamas, pop them on and watch a film ✨
