Autumnal stripes with Barry M Mustard, Paprika and Cocoa

As soon as they launched on Wednesday, I went straight out and bought all 6 polishes from the new Barry M Autumn 2014 Gelly collection. I lined them all up in number order for swatching on my nail wheels and couldn’t help but notice that the yellow, red and brown shades worked really well in a gradient.

And that’s how this manicure was born. In the end though, I left out Chilli, as I preferred a three-way lined gradient and I plumped for Paprika over Chilli as it’s a better complement to the other two.

I started by painting Barry M Coconut on my two middle nails. I was initially going to use OPI My Vampire Is Buff, but thought I’d keep it all in the Barry M family! I top-coated and waited for them to dry and then I blocked off the stripes using the regular width straight Nail Vinyls. Finally, I painted Mustard, Paprika and Cocoa before quickly removing the nail vinyls. I’ve used Paprika on the plain nails.

Great autumn colours! Reminds me of old tweed as well for some reason.


First thing I did on Wednesday was buy those three new A/W Gellys! I couldn’t quite bring myself to buy six polishes in one go, but I’m sure I’ll be back for the other three fairly soon.

They were 3 for 2 in Superdrug; I couldn’t resist having them all.


These are beautiful!


These nail polishes are perfect for autumn! The looks great together too! 🙂
