BARRY M TOPCOAT IN STARLIGHT*
BARRY M TOPCOAT IN TWILIGHT*
BARRY M TOPCOAT IN MOONLIGHT*
It’s definitely edging nearer and nearer to Christmas these days and that means that our nails get that little bit sparklier and sparklier until we’re rolling around in glitter come Christmas Day. Just me? Oh okay then…
So there’s three different polishes here which means a little something for everyone – or at just £3.99 each, maybe all three! So this is where it gets a little complicated: Twilight is exclusive to Tesco, and Starlight and Moonlight are exclusive to Boots. So you do have to go on a little adventure for them unfortunately!
My favourite is the Starlight one, which i’m wearing on my nails here over the top of an old limited edition Estee Lauder polish, but really if you want to create the same effect you can use any dark purple/deep brown shade. Why is Starlight my favourite? Well to me it’s pretty much a cheat sheet to a ‘galaxy’ inspired nail, as it has tiny pieces of glitter, large circular pieces of glitter and star shaped sparkles too.
I really love this kind of nail for before Christmas – when the red and chunky glitters come out – so Starlight for me is the perfect November glittery nail. I’m not really keen on Twilight to be honest, I just couldn’t get it to work or look right with any of my polishes in my stash. Maybe it’s the kind of thing to be worn just over a silver perhaps, but for me Starlight is the clear winner, and Moonlight I think will look dead cute over a green for a Christmas inspired nail!
What do you think of the limited edition Barry M Christmas holiday topcoats this year?
