Barry M Foil Effect Nail Paints!

As soon as I saw these polishes on Asos I knew I had to have them - firstly because I'm a nail polish junkie and secondly because nail art foils look so fiddly to me and these seemed like an easier option!

On trying them out I am very impressed by both the effect and the consistency of the polishes. They dry really quickly and were pretty much opaque with just one coat (although I applied two).

The only downside is that you can see the brush strokes on the nail which somewhat takes away from the foil effect...but maybe I was a bit clumsy with my application!

Barry M Instant Effects - Silver Foil no.319

Barry M Instant Effects - Gold Foil no.320

Have you tried the Barry M foil polishes or have you had a go at nail art foils?
