Spring nail colours

I’m softening, making a little change.

I always wear black. Maybe a little navy blue, oxblood, a little grey here and there. But considering I’m twenty-something and still a bit of a goth, my makeup is much softer.

Nudes I love! But I also rather love peach and soft pink hues, and especially when it comes to my nails. I’m taking better care of them now, so I have more room to play around.

Seeing as I was bored of my usual Nails Inc. and Kiko polishes, and it was high time I tried Barry M and L’Oréal!

Left to right: Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint in 704 Peanut Butter, L’Oréal Color Riche in 556 Grenat Irreverent, L’Oréal Color Riche in 26 Rue Cremieux, Barry M Sunset Gel Nail Paint in 649 Dark Side of the ‘Shroom

As far as quality goes, they’re wonderful! The Barry M shades are somewhat glossy, but I prefer a more amplified shine. For that and longevity, I use both a Maybelline base and Nails Inc.’s Kensington Caviar top coat to get a solid four or five days of wear before they begin to chip.

Peanut Butter is the prettiest shade of peach, but I’m also quite taken with Rue Cremieux, the cutest baby pink!  But I’m predictable, and you just know I had to throw in a vampy berry red!

Can you blame me?


  1. These shades are beautiful! I could wear all of them. Rue Cremieux is my favourite as I really like pink. Grenat Irreverent is also a really pretty shades, I'm not a fan of black nail polish but all dark reds and purples are gorgeous. Barry M is a great brand for nail polish, best value for money in drugstore nail polishes!

    1. I have to agree! These were my first Barry M shades and the quality is pretty good! I'm going to need more.

      Black and dark reds are such a nightmare to remove. Most of the time I avoid them just for that reason.

  2. I love the barry m shade, so pretty! Nice blog btw had to follow
