Barry M Glitter Nail Paint Review!

Hello! A while ago I was getting some products for my first ever beauty box swap - don't worry, you'll see all about this in another post - and I bought two Barry M Glitter Nail Paints to put in the package. I liked the look of them so much that I bought two for myself! I hadn't had a chance to try them until the other day. I've only tried one of the two I bought. This one is known as 'amethyst'.

It's so pretty and I love the colours! At first I was a bit confused as I applied one coat and literally a few specks of glitter came out and some clear nail polish. I quickly took it off and did a base coat of another Barry M nail polish - but it was a basic purple. I then put this over the top. It looked okay, but not as nice as I'd seen on some pictures on the Internet so I did what everyone does when they have a problem; I googled it. I turns out that it takes 'at least 5 coats' to get the glitter to cover your nail. So I took the previous nail polish off and applied some coats of just this, without a base colour. It took 4 coats to get it to look perfect, and it looked great!
Okay, don't judge! It's a bit messy I know! The glitter gets all over my fingers. Unfortunately I didn't get a good picture of what it looks like when I cleaned it up, but I think you can tell from this how pretty the glitter effect is. I'm sure you all will do a much better job with it, I'm honestly so bad at painting my nails!
I love this nail polish though, it's really really pretty! The only downside to it is that it is soooooo hard to get off. It doesn't come off with the normal nail polish remover technique. When I first took it off because it was chipping I started freaking out because it would literally not come off. I discovered that to take it off you have to hold the nail polish remover on it for just over 2 minutes and then slowly wipe it off your nail. There's also the foil method which you can find on a lot of beauty blogs, but I personally prefer this simpler method.
So overall, I really like the look of this nail polish but it's a paint to put on and take off. I will however use it a lot because it looks gorgeous and is so original to all the basic colours.
Score: 7/10
