|Barry M Coconut Nail Polish|
Now brands like Nails Inc. have also developed this trend by adding beneficial superfood ingredients to their coloured polishes too. Finally the drugstore has cottoned on to this aswell, with the likes of Barry M bringing out a collection of Coconut Infused Polishes, which looked too pretty to not do a review on, so here's my thoughts.
These retail for £4.99 for 10ml of polish, which is great price for a specialist product. You can also buy the whole collection of 9 polishes for £25 from Superdrug if your a die hard Barry M fan, but personally a few of the nude shades are very similar, so I'm not sure it's worth buying the whole collection. I picked up Skinny Dip & Laguna.
The packaging is the same as all the other Barry M Polishes, the only difference is these have a dark copper lid and thicker, shorter brush, just like the Sunset Daylight Curing line. I do love their bottles as they are simple yet effective and let the colours do all the talking instead.
These are so creamy, pigmented and virtually opaque in one coat and because of the Coconut Water and Oil the idea is you don't need to apply a base coat, as the colour hydrates the nail. I admit this is a little unnerving, for someone who without fail always applies a base coat, but nice in another way if your strapped for time and want a polish that not only treats the nails, but is also quick to apply.

These lasted for me around 4 days with a top coat, which I think is average for wear time on a polish. But the bonus was when I removed the polish my nails didn't feel dry at all.

I love these so much, the concept, affordability factor and colour selection was beautiful, despite there being quite a few nude shades. Barry M for me is nailing the drugstore nail market at the moment, with innovative and on trend colour collections.
These are beautifully pigmented and glide on like a dream, they also cut your manicure time down, if you don't have much time on your hands. So if your looking for an inexpensive, treatment coloured polish, that doesn't require a base coat, then these could be for you!
