Slovenian Internet store licila.si, is sending Slovenian bloggers Barry M nail polishes for a review. 

They chose Shocking Pink and Pale Purple shades for me.

First one I tried out was Pale Purple. Very light violet shade with good brush and viscosity. It dried pretty fast over my base coat to a high gloss creme finish. Pale Purple is a little bit darker on my tips than in the bottle and has this soft pinkish undertone you can see on some of the photos.

I used two layers and no top coat.

Shocking Pink is true to it’s name. Formula here is a little bit thicker than in Pale Purple and more pigmented. If I were little bit more precise, one layer would be enough. This shade also has high gloss creme finish.

Two layers, no top coat.

Both polishes can be used for konadicures. First I used Shocking Pink to stamp fauxnad H1 image over the Pale Purple shade.

Then I reversed polishes and stamped the same image with Pale Purple over Shocking Pink polish.

There is nothing wrong with the colors, it’s just that they don’t speak to me. But I did love the formula and price is OK, so I’ll buy a polish or two (… or three. ) more to my liking.

Which one do you like the best? Or is one of the konadicures more to your taste?

  1. Thanks for these swatches! I’ve been debating whether or not to buy some Barry M’s and Pale Purple looks lovely. I really like Shocking Pink konaded over Pale Purple!

  2. karamela, turkiznega sem tudi jaz naročila ker me je na sliki popolnoma očaral .. in začaral potem ko sem ga dobila .. nisem imela še lepšega odtenka turkizne kot je tale od Barry M .. se splača kupit ;)

  3. Pale Purple… :hmm:
    Na tvojih nohtkih pa sicer oba izgledata super, le da tista pink barva ni ravno moja najljubša… Hvala bogu, vsaj eden manj na WL. :biggrin:

  4. Pink odtenek mi bolj všeč, drugače sem pa z njihove spletne strani želela naročiti turkiznega pa ga žal ni na zalogi.  Hvala za swatche in oceno, sem komaj čakala da še te lake pri nas kdo oceni.

    • Tudi jaz čakam, da dobijo novo zalogo, da si naročim kak lep zelen ali moder odtenek. In sedaj, ko vem, da so originalne kode pod ceno, bom lažje našla iskane odtenke. :biggrin:

  5. ojoj, obe konadikuri sta popolni :wub:
    se že pripravljam da naročim tole platko :stars: …če jo le najdem :silly:
    kje si jo ti nabavila? :think:

  6. Ker nisem preveč ljubiteljica pink barve mi je seveda vijolko dosti bolj všeč. :wub:
    Glede na mojo obsesijo s konadom – sta mi pa obe konadikuri krasni. :love:
    .-= Tassa´s last post … KOTD: Firework Stars =-.

  7. Jaz sem tudi dobila ta lilastega  :D Čudovit je! Tale rožnat je pa tudi lep :)
