BarryM Nail Paint Swatches!

Since ditching acrylic nails over a year and a half ago i have become more and more into nail varnish. I never used to change the colour of my nail varnish when i had acrylic nails, i just used to go back to my nail salon to get it changed. For me personally i never found nail varnish too interesting when i had acrylics..i think its probably something to do with them not being my own nails so i didn't give them as much love. So when i grew out my own nails i loved being able to change my nail varnish every week or sometimes everyday lol..I'm a very indecisive person!

The one brand i have always loved for nail varnish is BarryM. The range of nail paints is out of this world and they are just so affordable at just £2.95 a pop. The quality of the nail varnish is brilliant and with over 50 shades to choose from you will always find the colour you need.

Over the last year and a half i have gathered quite a collection, ranging from purples to blues so i thought why not share them all with you. Nail varnishes can sometimes look totally different on so here are some swatches for you!
