Red Nails: Barry M - Starlet

Hello there guys!! I hope you're having a sweet day, also Happy Chinese New Year to those celebrating!! I know I'm pretty late and my chinese new year design probably won't be up for a while cause turnaround is slow here haha. So today I have a Barry M Glitterati polish cause they're pretty fab. This is the other polish I bought with Malibu cause when things are on offer I think I literally can't say no :P

Starlet is a pinky red glitter with I reckon opalescent glitter and then some holographic glitter sprinkled in like the other polishes in the collection. Depending on the lighting it was lean very pink or like orangey red. I'm reluctant to call this coral though, the shade of colour is a big deal. It's a nice polish, I think it'd be fun for a party or something (not like I have time to go to parties haha) and I think the opalescent glitter adds good depth.

I was intrigued by the colour, and considering how great the other Glitterati polishes are I wanted to try this one out, and like all the colours lol. You know Barry never disappoints, I excited to try the new Gelly polishes and like everything, I'll probably initially write it off then way after everyone else I try it and am amazed.

This was a definite 3 coater, but it built really well. It was pretty sheer on the 1st coat (like the others) but it was completely opaque in 3 coats. The formula is pretty thick but not difficult to apply. You just have to make sure it's applied evenly and it looks pretty sweet.

Thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day!! :)


  1. OMG that is an amazing nail polish! And it is fairly unique, I don't think I have seen any polish that looks like that one. I miss England, I can't find Barry M polishes that easily in France...

    1. Isn't it so pretty?? Agreed, I have nothing else like it. Haha I would miss my Barry Ms, best thing about the UK :P
