Barry M Magnetic Blue

Merry Christmas!

I’ve worn three manicures since last posting, but haven’t blogged about them. Two of them I didn’t like: L’Oreal Boudoir Rose was too light for winter, and Max Factor Dazzling Blue was green and gold, not blue; and one other I’ve blogged about before: navy blue with a glitter gradient.

So, it’s now the day after Boxing Day and I’ve decided to wear a magnetic polish. I only have a couple of magnetic polishes and I can never seem to get the magnet in the right place or to cover as much of the nail as I would like. I’ve even experimented with other, ordinary  magnets, such as fridge magnets, (most work well, I have to report), but all the same, I don’t like the look the magnet gives as I just can’t get it as perfect as I would like.

But I do love the magnetic polishes, just for the finish and the colours. This is Barry M Magnetic Blue. It comes with a star design magnet, but I haven’t used it here. It’s a sort of metallic denim blue and is really “me”. I’m a big fan of Barry M polishes anyway, and this one looks set to become a bit of a staple for me.

What do you think about magnetics? Do you have any? Do you use the magnet or wear them on their own?


For this manicure I’ve used:
  • Base: two coats of Barry M Magnetic Blue
  • Top coat: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Anti-Chip
