When I first saw Barry M’s Foil polish launch I immediately thought of the old “Silver”
I always thought the silver came off as a “foil” or “minx” like finish so I was dubious as to whether they were just rebranding the old formula at a higher price. Being the curious blogger I am I had to test it out…here’s what I found…
Surprisingly they are totally different! I thought I’d hate the foil and begrudge paying a pound more for something I effectively already have covered from Barry M but far from it. I must stress that the pictures below show my nails after ONE COAT of the foil effects polish… that puts it way up in my estimations already but also.. it’s a totally new addition to my collection. As you can see from the below pictures the silver (on my thumb and forefinger) is very much a sparkly finish. It’s made up of lots of fine glitter and took three coats to achieve a full coverage. It’s still a lovely polish but I have to admit if you’re looking for foil… it doesn’t compare. I may even go out and buy the gold one now.
Man I hate to be wrong!
