Poppy | Barry M Silk Nail Effects | REVIEW

So here I am on the second to last day of 2014 writing up my first blog post in December, to say its been a while would be an understatement. The past month in all honesty has not been great for me, but as things are getting better I've decided i want to become more active with my blog and my Instagram as they're both something i really love to do. With that being said I'm here to talk to you today about my new favourite nail polish which I've been raving about on Insta for months. It is the Barry M Silk Effect Nail Polish in the shade 'Poppy' and it's absolutely to die for. 

Its no secret that I am a huge love of Barry M's nail polishes but when i heard about the Silk Nail Collection i just wasn't sold, that was until i saw this colour. It's the perfect shimmery, pinky red but at the same time its also matte and subtle enough for everyday wear! 

The formula for this is absolutely spot on too, its not thin or streaky but has enough coverage for you to be able to wear it with just one coat. I always use two as i like it to be a little bolder but either way it looks amazing. Unlike other matte nail polishes it does have a slightly longer drying time than normal, but as long as you paint it on thinly enough this is not really an issue. The wear time on this is between 3 and 5 days, with a basecoat. Thats a huge bonus for me as I'm constantly on the go and nail polishes don't tend to last longer than a couple of days for me. 

Overall this is a really lovely colour which is perfect for those colder winter months and adding a little colour back into your life. For just £3.99 its you really can't go far wrong! 


  1. love this colour, its so pretty and festive xx


  2. the color looks really nice, would have loved to see a nail swatch though. I'm curious how it looks when it's dried Down.


  3. This colour is gorgeous! I've never tried Barry M's Silk Effect before, but I'm really tempted!
