Review and swatches: Barry M – Dusky Mauve and Indigo

Indigo and Dusky Mauve are the newest shades by Barry M. I got both of them for review and now I’m going to write (as always) an honest review about them.

Indigo is exactly what the name says – an indigo shade. I’d say it’s a perfect indigo blue. According to Wikipedia it’s a pigment indigo. Well, it’s between blue and purple (= blurple). Actually, under certain lighting it’s plain dark blue and under others it shows its purple side. I love the color and I got a lot of compliments on this one. You can imagine, that it was impossible to photograph it well. I had to “adjust” the color a bit with a software. I hope I didn’t over-adjust it. :D No application issues. There two coats shown in the photo below.

Dusky Mauve is supposed to be Chanel – Paradoxal’s dupe. I can’t compare them, because I don’t have Paradoxal. But according to the swatches from the web, I’d say they are indeed very close. The base is a taupe shade. What makes this polish special is the purple shimmer. It’s interesting how the shimmer disappears in some angles, while in others the shimmer is clearly visible. I didn’t have any application issues with Dusky Mauve. There are two coats shown in the photos below.

I’m really impressed by the Barry M polishes. So far I have five of them and I love them all. All are easy to apply. I love the brush (regular round one). The bottles aren’t special, but I like square bottles, because they take up less space. :D

One of the places, where Barry M is sold, is at Lič

What is your opinion on Barry M nail polishes? And how do you like the Indigo and Dusky Mauve shades?

  1. Ni ja ne volim siroke OPIjeve kistove, oni stari su mi bili puno bolji,prije ovih pro wide :ermm:
    ovaj dusky mauve je super, i dobro da paradoxal ima dupe jer mislim da nikad ne bi dala 20 eura za lak :hmm:

  2. Jih imam kar nekaj in so mi vsi všeč :yes:  Prav tako mi je všeč njihov ”navaden” čopič in pa kako lepo se vsi lepo nanašajo in lahko narediš lepo krivino ob kožici. :party:
    Moj Indigo in še par drugih pa je na poti (spet) :blush:

    • Lepo, da se še nekdo strinja glede navadnih čopičev z menoj. Veliko jih je namreč navdušenih nad “metlami” od OPIja, meni pa ne “sedejo” lepo na nohte.

      Opa, novi nakup. Komaj čakam, da jih vidim. ;)
