Top 6 Summer Lip Products

Summer's here! So here is a cut of my favourite lip products for the season. This post was meant to be a 'Top 5', but I just had to squeeze in another, so 'Top 6' it is! Most of these are newly launched, but a couple are old favourites, and I've tried to include a variety of shades into the mix.

Barry M Speedy Quick Dry Nail Paints | Summer Shades

I wrote about Barry M's Speedy Quick Dry Nail Paints back in February and I raved about how brilliant they were. As a huge Barry M nail fan, I was very excited to hear that they have launched 6 new shades for the summer season and I had to get my hands on them (they're currently on offer at buy one get one 1/2 price at Superdrug). Yay! 
The original line consisted of pastels which is great, but the new Summer shades are bright and tropical- and omg what an amazing colour collection it is! Three of the shades offer a glossy finish, and the other three are of a lovely frosted effect.


Barry M Sunset Daylight Curing Nail Paints

Barry M launched a new and exciting Nail Paint range this week called 'Sunset Daylight Curing' which is full of Summer-perfect colours and offers a gel-like finish to your nails without a lamp. It simply requires natural light. Gel finish nails have always been a popular trend so I can imagine these being immensely popular. Basically if you're a fan of the Gelly range, you'll love these too as these offer an even glossier, light-reflecting finish and your nails just feel amazing.


NEW | Barry M Speedy Nail Paints

I've mentioned this before but Barry M Nail Paints are my absolute fave; they don't just launch the average 4 nail colours per season- they launch about 20 in various colours, effects, and textures! Plus, they're cheap as chips and considering the quality is good, you're getting a bargain. 

For SS15, Barry M have launched a plethora of new Speedy Nail Paints aiming to well... speed up the drying time! I've noticed that loads of brands claim that their polishes are quick-drying but aren't. However, these new Nail Paints by Barry M do exactly what it says on the 'tin'. My nails dry fully after just 2 minutes of application, and when I say 'fully' I mean 'being able to rub your finger across your painted nail without ruining it' fully. 


Festive Favourites | Barry M Christmas Nail Paints

Believe it or not, Barry M is the king of colour cosmetics and they're Nail Paints never fail to amaze me. They recently launched a few more shades of their Silk Nail Paints for AW14 as well as a Christmas top coat, and they're so festive and party-appropriate. I picked up three shades- the Christmas Tree top coat, and Silk Nail Paints in Poppy and Forest. 

The formulas offer smooth matte finish and dry incredibly quickly- I was surprised that by the time I finished painting my pinky finger, my thumbnail (which I painted first) was already completely dry! They're very impressive, especially considering that these only cost £3.99 each. Also, Superdrug have a deal on at the moment: if you spend £6 or over, you get a limited edition Christmas top coat free. 


Barry M Aquarium Nail Paints!

I've recently been loving these Aquarium nail paints that were recently launched by Barry M so I thought I'd post a few photos of some swatches. Barry M are always bang on-trend with their nail products, and are constantly launching a variety of 'effects' and coloured nail polishes. I'm a big fan of their Gelly range!

The Aquarium collection consists of six shades split into two colour categories [one being blue/green, and the other being gold/pink]. My fave are the blue shades because they're so mermaid-like and pretty! Click 'Read More' for enlarged photos!


Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paints in Grapefruit and Greenberry!

I've heard a lot about these new nail polishes from Barry M from other bloggers when I spotted them in Boots last week, I had to get my hands on a couple of them! I went for the shades Grapefruit- a  lovely bubblegum pink; and Greenberry- a gorgeous bright mint green colour. Both of these colour-popping shades are perfect for the Spring and Summer seasons!


Barry M Pastel Nail Shades!

Pastel shades are all the rage in Summer seasons, especially when the sun's out. I gathered some pastel nail polishes for a bright, sweetie multi-coloured manicure.

The majority of the nail colours used below are mainly Barry M Nail Polishes, but I couldn't find a yellow pastel shade, so I opted for a Revlon Nail Enamel. I do like Barry M Nail Polishes, but I feel that they sometimes have their 'mood swings'- i.e. sometimes they streak, sometimes they don't streak. However, the nail polishes are excellent when they don't streak.

The shades I used below from left to right, are: Revlon Sunshine Sparkle, Barry M Berry, Peach Melba, Strawberry Ice Cream, and Blue Moon. Barry M Nail Polishes are only £2.99 so it was such a bargain! That means you can buy 5 different shades of Barry M (one for each nail!) for just under £15!

What do you think? Are you a fan of Barry M Nail Polishes? £2.99 is a pretty good price!
