Anyway, I think all of the colours are perfect for Autumn, with caramelly and deep red tones, just up my street! So here's what I think:
Some of the shades look a little bit blah in the bottle, but I think they all look so great on the nails, and I think it's the matte finish that does it. It just makes them all so daytime appropriate and non-offensive because they're not really in your face, the matte finish just mutes them nicely, and it makes them a great way to look polished but not too over the top.
This is after one coat:
I actually think these look acceptable with one coat because the opacity is pretty good which means they're not overly streaky! So if you were in a rush, you could probably get away with just wearing one coat! But if you've got a bit more time I'd recommend perfecting them with another coat:
I just love the way these look on the nails! Definitely a nice change for autumn! And I honestly probably couldn't pick out a favourite colour from the collection because I really like all the shades! I think Barry M have definitely got the shade range bang on!
I'd say that these will be at their best on your nails for 2-3 days, but after that they do start to go a little downhill, they chip and start to look a little thick and gummy on your nails (does anyone know what I mean by that?) And they start to loose their total matte-ness a bit. But to be honest I am not bothered by this at all, I quite like to change up my polishes (when I have the time to put another one on after I've taken one off!) and I don't like to have the same one on for too long. Also, at just under £4 each, who's complaining? You can buy the whole collection for less than a chanel polish, and I hear those babies chip even faster, so where do you think your money's best off? Am I right? ;) haha okay, what was that? Oh, one last thing! Top coats are a bit awkward with these, because most of them give a shine, which obviously defeats the point of these, I know that e.l.f did a matte topcoat, and I think O.P.I do as well, but I don't know whether they work or not. So if you could find a good matte one, you might actually be able to prolong the wear of these on your nails!
So, in conclusion, I love these, and I think the colours in the collection teamed with the matte finish is just perfect for autumn! Another great release from Barry M, and I would definitely recommend picking up a shade or two!
Do you like matte look nails? Which is your favourite shade from the collection?
