Barry M - Teal - Swatch and Comparison

Hullo Everyone!

I'm going to do a quick swatch and comparison of a nail polish I bought yesterday from Barry M, it's one of their new colours and it's called Teal.  I'm Comparing it to Maybeline New York Mermaid Blue.

In Natural Light. 

I love this polish!

It's very pigmented, like most Barry M's, and its extremely eye catching. 

I saw swatches of this polish before buying it and really thought it would be just like the MNY polish in Mermaid Blue. Although once having a closer look I noticed a few differences. 

Barry M in Teal and Maybeline New York in Mermaid Blue

These are both two coats each and you can see that Teal is more pigmented and smooth. The MNY polish is slightly more blue toned and does not have as much a glossy finish once it's dried. 

I want to see what this polish would like with a matte top coat so that's the next product on my To Buy List :-)  I heard that Beauty UK have a great one for a cheap price tag! 

With flash. 

I really recommend this polish. It has great application and is inexpensive at just £2.99 in Superdrug and Boots. 

Sorry about my the horrible mess on my nails, applying nail polish is still a some what difficult thing for me to do :-P

Hope you all have a great weekend! 

Thanks, Linzi xx
