Barry M Texture Nail Effects

Barry M Texture Nail Effects* in Station Road and Atlantic Road

I'm a huge fan of Barry M nail paints, and in particular love the fact that their Nail Effects have lead the way in the nail art world. They've recently been releasing a plethora of new Nail Effects polishes, all of which I'm really excited about. I was recently sent a couple of their texture nail effects to play around with, so I thought I would pop a little review up to let you guys see what I thought to them!

The colours I received were Station Road, a gorgeous, sunshine yellow, and Atlantic Road, a pale sea blue shade. Both the colours are really pigmented and pack the punch that all of Barry M's fab nail paints do. They only need a couple of coats to get a gorgeous solid colour, and then all you need to do is wait patiently whilst the nail effects start to work.

The idea behind these Nail Effects is all about texture - similarly to the Nails Inc. Concrete polish I blogged about a little while ago, these polishes dry to leave a really texturised, interesting finish. If you're not a fan of not having smooth nails, these polishes definitely won't be for you, but in my opinion they're fab for spicing up your nail collection and adding something a bit different and fun.

The polishes last well and I'm really impressed with them. For £3.99 each I really don't think you can go wrong, so these are definitely worth checking out if you're debating embarking on the textured nail trend.

Have you tried Barry M's Texture Nail Effects? What did you think?


  1. Gorgeous shades :)! I wish I could wear Barry M, they've had so many great bits out just now, but for some reason they completely destroy my nails! xx

  5. I quite like that effect on the nails, I love touching effects like that

  6. I haven't tried these yet, but I love Barry M polishes so I'm definitely going to have to invest!

  7. I think these look pretty cool and I love the combination of colours. xxx

  8. I am really on the fence about this nail effect, at first I instantly dismissed it and had decided that I did not like it but after seeing a couple a fair few swatches I don't think it is that bad. I seem to like the perfectly polished and shiny look when it comes to nails. I think these textured polishes would look super duper awesome if you were going for a grungy look or perhaps media/stage make up.

  9. So fun! I'm a new follower and am glad I found your blog - love the header and design! I'm a fan.

    Would love for you to check mine out :) xx

  10. I'm a huge fan of all Barry M nail varnishes so I will have to give these a try as they look pretty cool, can imagaine its a bit of a pain to remove though?

  12. The shades are really gorgeous, but the effect I don't like that much honestly. But it is really interesting! :) x

  13. I love the blue shade, I'm not entirely sure about the effect though.

  14. I have the blue one, to be honest I'm glad I only purchased one of these as I really do not like them. The concept is rather funky, but for me the reality isn't that great. I'm glad you liked them though :D
