Barry M Nail Effects

I've finally managed to pick up a bottle of Barry M Nail effects! I tested it out on Mum on Monday evening, since then she's been baking/cooking/shopping/working... so I thought that was a good test for nail durability!!!

The colour underneath is Nails Inc Caramel (free with 2 diet cokes) and the top coat I used Sally Hansen Hard As Nails With Nylon (because I couldn't find an ordinary top coat anywhere in the house!)

Soooo... here are the results, the photos are off the webcam so sorry for the poor quality:

It looks a lot better in person, and Mum was really pleased with the effect. Tip: you must use a top coat or the nail effect flakes off everywhere!! I think I'll apply two clear coats over the top next time I use this because it did chip a little on day two.

I've only managed to pick up the denim and caramel colours from Boots Diet Coke offer, but I really want the other two!!

Have you managed to get all the Nails Inc Diet Coke colours?


  1. I got denim too, I love it! Love that Barry M polish!! x

  2. hehe cool! i know it's a very popular look now because Katy Perry for OPI just came out with Black Shatter, which has the same effect as that..

  3. This is cool! Your nails look great. I can't wait to get the Katy Perry one. I think, or never seen Barry M here in the States.


  4. oh wow really? I might have to buy the OPI one too! x
