NOTD: Barry M Pink Flamingo

Barry M Pink Flamingo manicure

This is one of my all time favourite nail polishes and I can't believe I haven't blogged about it yet.
A beautiful creamy pink-coral that can look almost neon in some lights, this is possibly also my favourite colour of all time too.
I love everything about this polish, including the name. I have a bit of a thing for flamingos, you see. I love them! Anything flamingo related, named or coloured gets a big thumbs up from me (I blame John Waters)

Barry M polishes are some of the absolute best out there in terms of formula, wear and range of colours available and they retail at only £2.99 a bottle - usually on offer in Boots or Superdrug for 2 for £5.

This polish has a great consistency, neither too thin nor too thick and is opaque in two coats. It is also intensely glossy - these photographs were taken without a topcoat.

I usually get 3-4 days wear without chipping with Pink Flamingo and almost all Barry M polishes. 
I have chosen this colour for my manicure as I am off on a little break this weekend with my family and I need a polish I know will last over a long weekend without chipping or tip wear. Although it looks as though this weekend is going to be a wet one, I'm very much in the holiday spirit!

Have a good weekend everyone x


  1. Thats lovely and your nails are looking great too! I have just bought Barry M Indigo which I love but am finding it chippy, odd as Barry M Shocking Pink (which is my current fave and I think you'd love it too!) isn't bad for wear at all. Have a great weekend away xxx

    1. Thank you! I can't believe I don't own shocking pink, must rectify that one asap!
