Barry M Coconut Infusion Edition

When I first started seeing blog posts of Barry M's newest range I got very excited. I adore Barry M and around 75% of my nail varnishes are this brand and so when I read up on the Coconut Infusion range I knew I needed to try them.

These new innovative nail polishes contain coconut water and coconut oil to hydrate and nourish your nails while delivering a gel-like glossy finish. They contain Vitamins B & C to repair and replenish nails which result in a bright, healthier, long lasting finish. On the directions, they say not to use a base coat, just two coats of the polish and a top coat if desired.

The shades I chose to begin with are Laguna which is this absolutely gorgeous baby blue and Aloha which is a beautiful shade of pink that I've not seen in any other polishes. I have tried both on my nails and tried them with and without a top coat. Laguna takes 2 coats to achieve a streak-free, opaque finish and lasts around 2 days on my nails without chipping. Aloha is a bit more streaky and can sometimes take 3 coats but lasts around 2 days without chipping. Some of you might see this as a rubbish lasting time but to me, it's quite average. I work at a computer all day and my nails get damaged from picking up my bunnies from the garden and from the gym, so 2 days is average. I say it's average as it isn't really anything special and so the lasting power isn't something I would praise them for.

I really love both of these colours and I had to include a picture of Laguna even if it had to include a gross picture of my stumpy toes. I think the entire Coconut Infusion range has some truly unique shades and I can't wait to try more of these. Although they aren't they cheapest at £4.99 each, they are still budget and Boots currently have an offer on for buy 1 get the 2nd half price so you may as well treat yourself to at least 2!

Have you tried these yet?

Til' next time! XOXO
