Barry M Matte Topcoat | Review


At the moment I am obsessed with matte nail varnish, I much prefer buying a matte top coat, as it means I can turn basically any nail varnish I own into a matte version, I have way too many nail vanishes as it is, so this has not only saved me space, but a lot of money too!
 
I'd been meaning to buy a black nail varnish for aaaaages now, I always end up forgetting as it's never a priority when I go shopping, however whilst looking through the nail varnish in Boots I saw Barry Ms Black and remembered I needed to buy it. I also saw this Matte Top Coat (also Barry M) sitting nicely next to it, I'd seen a fair few pictures last winter of matte black nails, and quite liked the look of it, so I bought this too, and thought id try it out for this winter.
 
 
Barry M nail varnishes are the ones I always go back to, I own 23 of them at the minute. This seems a little excessive but if you know me at all then you'll know that this is a tiny fraction of what I actually own. oopssss.
 
Barry M states their normal nail varnishes are; quick drying, have a hard wearing formula, and are suitable for all types of nails.
 
Barry M states their Matte Top Coat is; perfect for any nail colour, it makes any nail varnish an on trend statement, whilst offering brilliant protection.
 
I've said many a times In the past how much I love Barry M nail varnishes, so I'm not going to bore you too much with what I think about the black, other than it's really quick drying, and only takes 2 coats to become opaque. The Matte Top Coat however is a new one for me, and I definitely wasn't disappointed! It dries incredibly fast, I thought I would have to sit and wait for a good while until my nails were dry, however after 5 minutes they were completely dry. It pretty much does what it says on the tin, it's a brilliant matte top coat and completely knocks out the shine, and I have to say I think I much prefer this look to having a high shine nail varnish on at the minute! Which is rare for me as I'm always buying the Barry M Gelly Nail Paints!
 
You can pick up Barry M's Topcoat for £2.99 which is an absolute bargain for how good it is!
You can find it here. Barry M also have a deal on at the moment, where if you spend £6 on Barry M products you get a free gift! Which is always lovely :)
 
 
So with that, I'm going to leave you with a few photos!

  4. I've been loving the matte nail trend and I've been searching for a matte top coat for a while now, but have never been sure on which to pick up! This sounds great for the price though, and Barry M definitely takes up the majority of my nail polish collection. Will definitely be picking this up on my next trip to Boots :) x
