Barry M Pacific

Here’s the other polish that I bought this week from the new Barry M Aquarium collection. This is a blue-green duochrome called Pacific. Well, you could argue that the green is a greeny turquoise.

It reminded me very much of Chanel’s Azuré, so I pulled out my swatch wheels, and it’s not far off. Pacific is perhaps a little darker, and with a slightly more obvious colour shift than Azuré.

I liked it most in its blue form, but it mainly looked more green/turquoise.

I found this to suffer more with visible brush strokes than Mediterranean – I think perhaps the more pronounced shimmer of Mediterranean obscured any brush strokes.

All in all though, it’s a lovely polish. Well done Barry M. I’ve loved the two polishes that I’ve tried from this collection.

And I took another photo again, with an alternative hand pose, to try to show the colour shift. My photography wasn’t quite as successful in showing the blue though as it was in real life.

This is stunning! I think Pacific is my favourite from the collection – I definitely need to pick it up! 🙂

Thank you. Blue is usually my favourite polish colour, but I think I love Mediterranean even more, which surprised me.


So gorgeous!! Totally adding this to my wish list. Love the icy feeling


I can still see the blue nonetheless and your swatch is so magnifique you’ve made me want this!! Badly!!! 😉
