Yesterday I popped into the Barry M press day to have a look at their new launches for SS15. I say popped in, but I actually spent about two hours there because it was such a nice place to be. They had rented a private room at the All Star Bowling Lanes in Holborn which had two bowling lanes, it's own bar and lots of sofas! There were a few bloggers who had come from a long way so we all spent the afternoon drinking pretty mocktails, chatting, taking photos and doing all those bloggery things as well as having a go on the bowling haha. I seemed to have a lucky throw and hit a strike my first time, we'll just pretend that I knew what I was doing and did that on purpose haha.
Barry M are launching a new line of speedy dry polishes in nine pretty pastel shades (along with some other products, another post on those). The lids are checkered like a racing flag because they dry so quickly. I like when you can tell what that they are all in the same range from their lids, it's like they are all one family.
I didn't get my nails done at the event as I wanted to get home and do them myself to really see what they were like. I have just used Pole Position, which is a mint green, and I can defiantly see a difference in drying time. I put the first layer on my little finger, then I decided that I needed to tell the world what I was doing so I sent a tweet and by the time I can back to my nail it was totally dry. I found that the second and third layers also dried quickly, just not a fast as the first.
Another feature of these polishes is the new brush. They are rounded rather than square which makes it easier to get a nice, clean line along your cuticle. Barry M brushes are usually a great size and I was able to paint most of my nails in just one swoop which was helpful!
This range launches into Superdrug on February 11th and Boots on the 18th.
