Thursday's Talons - Barry M Teal NOTD

Currently listening to: Never Gonna Leave This Bed by Maroon 5

Good morning girls!

When I showed you the recent additions to my nail polish collection, a lot of you expressed an interested in seeing Barry M Denim and Barry M Teal.  Today I have swatches of Teal for you:


I have 10-15 bottles of Barry M polishes and have always been a fan of the application of the polishes, the ease of which I think the brand is well-known for.  However, this polish disappointed me as it seemed quite thick and runny so I had trouble applying the right amount of polish to the brush, ensuring polish didn't drip from the brush handle on to my work surface (which it did) and controlling how much polish I applied to my nail.  It wasn't a total disaster but the quality I expect from Barry M was missing.


As for the colour, I think these photos show it accurately.  At times I felt it was very green, and couldn't understand how I'd ended up with green nails, but I accept this is a teal shade which leans more towards green than blue.


What do you think girls?  Are you a fan of teal?  Will you be buying this polish?

Bye for now,
Laura

PS Don't forget to enter my giveaway, it ends on Sunday!

  8. I like teal, but to be honest I am not quite sure about this one, and especially not if the formula is tricky. Now I'm *really* looking forward to seeing the Denim. :)
