Favourite Summer Nails: Barry M Bikini

I bought this from the Barry M Summer Limited Edition back in June and it has been one of my favourite summer nail colours and it’s very different than what I usually go for. I always look forward to summer limited editions coming out each year as they are always gorgeous bright summery colours ๐Ÿ™‚

Bikini is the Boots exclusive (along with Carousel. Promenade and Seaside are the Superdrug exclusives). It is a lovely blue shade with a purple undertone. It has a beautiful formula, as do all of the Barry M varnishes. I used 2 coats over a clear undercoat (to stop the colour staining my nails).

My nails have for some reason all ended up snapping (I usually have nice long nails). I think this colour looks great though even on short nails. I usually wouldn’t bother with brighter nail polishes until my nails grow a bit more, but I really like this one. I do as always though prefer the Barry M Gelly Hi Shines for the finish they give, as they look so much more glossy compared.

What has been your favourite nail varnish this summer?

    Exclusive to Superdrug would explain why I haven't seen these shades! I think this would look great on the toes too. ๐Ÿ™‚

      This one and Carousel are Boots. Promenade and Seaside are Superdrug – they mix it up a bit for some reason. Keeps us shopping in both I guess ๐Ÿ™‚ xx
