Barry M Nail Paint – Fashion Icon

Barry M Nail Paint - Fashion Icon swatch

I blooming love Barry M, they are my absolute go-to when it comes to nail polishes. I love how affordable they are and their selections are always spot on. I don’t think I have looked anywhere else for nail polishes in months. My mum bought Fashion Icon just before she went on holiday, so I thought I would have a little test of it whilst she was away.

In the bottle, Fashion Icon is a bright purple glitter shade with blueish specks throughout. I like my glitters bold, so this looked like it would be right up my street. Lets face it, I love anything purple too, so was always going to steal this when she wasn’t looking.

Barry M Nail Paint - Fashion Icon review

Once painted, Fashion Icon is a lot less vibrant than I imagined it would be, it comes across as more of a Lilac shade. I really thought it would be packed with a lot more glitter too, although I used 2 coats in the above photos, so I have a feeling it may have been a bit better with a couple more. The colour itself is lovely, although a little different from how it looks in the bottle. I don’t mind too much though as it matches my hair perfectly.

I can imagine this being super sparkly in the sun, probably the reason my mum bought it so she could show it off on holiday.

Available from Barry M and Boots.
