Jammy Fingers


I must admit!


I have never declared myself to be the biggest fan of BarryM nail polishes. At best I have found them to be hit and miss. Some colours that I have tried tend to apply in a streaky manner and some colours seem to take an age to dry. All that aside, I spotted this lovely jammy shade and couldn't resist bagging it.



I am sending BarryM happy congrats on this number. It applies well and lasts a good while without chipping (with the help of a good top coat anyway, I use Nail Inc Kensington).

The shade looks delicious enough to be sandwiched in your Victoria Sponge at tea time, yet, in dim light, it transforms into bloody deep red.
I love this colour. Upon my nails it looks like I have had my fingers in the jam jar. Yummy Yummy homemade raspberry jam! My favourite (along with damson jam).



I find that one thick coat does the trick.



To aid fast drying I use Nails inc Albert Bridge Top Coat which works really well. I bought this in Boots for £7.00 and am happy with it's performance and quality. Definitely worth the £!

  2. This looks like it would be such a cute pedicure colour! Though I'd appreciate the jelly-effect a little less, I think.

  3. this post is about nail polish and i'm an everyday guy with little or no discernible understanding of it.

    but having said that, i find it that a lady with a well manicured set of fingers seems to 'light my fire' if you get my drift.

  8. I gotta say I'm impressed with Barry M nails. Have never used it because I'm a sucker for OPI, MAC and Anna Sui polish and have some random ones from AA (of course) + Topshop. Never am without my OPI Quarter of a Centcherry but this shade is wicked!! x
