Barry M Silk Nail Paint - Gradient with Meadow and Pearl

Barry M's latest polishes are a range of beautiful pastel silk mattes. The finish is slightly waxy, or even reminiscent of the texture of a pearl, rather than a flat matte finish. The finish looks shinier in the pictures I took with my daylight lamp than in natural light - this next picture is natural light:

I created this simple gradient with two of the Silk shades - Meadow, a pretty mint green and Pearl - a pearl-white. First, I applied two coats of Meadow, then a sponge gradient with the two colours on a damp makeup sponge. Pearl seems quite sheer and the gradient has turned out subtle, but very pretty. I might try using Pearl as the base colour if I do a gradient with these again, to see if I can get a stronger effect.

The Silk polishes handled beautifully - application and gradient were both super easy. Overall I'm really impresed with these, I really like the colours and the texture.

Barry M Silk range releases on 12 February in Superdrug and 19 February in Boots according to the press releases, but for some reason they were already on display in a Tesco I called in at last night, so I grabbed these two to try them out early
