Dusty, muted colours usually make me feel like wearing something bright after them (and vice versa). I also wanted to try out another new brand for me — Barry M. 🙂 I recently acquired their Christmas Gift set of four polishes, and for my first Barry M experience, I used my favourite of the set — Cobalt Blue — which is a super pretty vivid medium blue creme.
Well, I have to say, my first impressions are good! 😀 I only needed one coat of polish for an even and opaque result.
I seriously love this shade of blue. 🙂
I was all set to keep this manicure for a couple of days at least (I love the colour that much) but unfortunately this chipped on me pretty badly in 24 hrs. 😦 I had major tip wear on all my nails, and a chunk out of my left pinky. I’d wrapped my tips as usual with Seche Vite, but it didn’t help in this case.
I don’t know, maybe my nails just don’t like something in Barry M’s formula…
By the way, I got my Bundle Monster plates today! Yay! 😀 I need to play with them soon. I bet Cobalt Blue will make a good stamping polish, it’s so pigmented and thick…. need to test that. 😉
