Review // Barry M Nail Paints in Berry and Foil

My lovely twin sister bought these lovely nail varnishes for me last week for my birthday and I had been dying to try them out. These nail paints are, as always, from Barry M and are in the shades Berry and Foil. (Foil is from the Barry M Nail Effects range) I've read a few blogs and Foil has received some quite mixed reviews. A lot of people believe that the Foil Nail Paint doesn't make the nails have a foil effect at all - something which I completely disagree with.

I believe that the nail varnish does make the nail have a foil effect - it simply isn't a normal silver varnish. The colour glides on effortlessly, giving a completely shiny coat. You only need one coat of this lovely varnish as it is so opaque, however I did use Sally Hansen's Double Duty as a top coat. I was also pleasantly surprised that Foil wasn't streaky - something which I was very much expecting.
As you can see from the photo above, I paired the Foil Nail Paint with Berry. Berry is a lovely inoffensive pastel lilac. I had to apply two coats of the nail varnish to my nails as the formula is a little sheer. I also applied a top coat to make my nails look extra glossy.
