I’ve given in. I will no longer shiver because of my bare ankles every morning, I will not shun my cosy coats and thick socks because I refuse to believe it is no longer summer. You know, October.
Now that I’ve accepted it, I am ready to embrace all things Autumnal and Wintery – fireworks! Matching gloves and scarves! Bobble hats!
Every time I pop to a well-know chemist, I take a trip to the Barry M section just to see what’s new! A few weeks ago I picked up some colours from their new Autumn/Winter collection which has a distintly spicy feel. My favourites (and the ones that ended up in my basket) were Cardamom and Paprika. Paprika is a really unusual reddy-brown. Not unlike the colour of a brick. Cardamom is a beautiful warm green, the likes of which I’ve not seen before. They are good at their colours those Barry M chaps.
Now, I have just moved house (STRESS) and it’s the busiest season at work (DOUBLE STRESS) so I haven’t really had much time for my nails in the last few weeks. But last night I treated myself to two coats of Paprika…it goes in really thick and glossy (as do all Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine polishes) and then because I am incapable of having one-colour nails I went for a quick diagonal effect on one feature nail using the striping tape and the Cardomom colour. Finally I added a line of simple gold studs by IZ Beauty of London, because I can’t resist!
Are you a fan of Barry M? What’s your favourite colour from their collection?
