Barry M Autumn/Winter 2013 Classic Matte Nail Polish Collection

Hey everyone! Today I have one of Barry M's exciting new collections to show you, the Classic Matte collection. I'll be posting the Royal Glitter collection and the other new polishes within the next week. They are due for release on the 25th September in Superdrug and October 2nd in Boots. I'm really impressed with this whole collection, and with what I've seen of the other collections. Barry M has really pulled it out of the bag this time!

I'll put the rest of the post after the jump otherwise it may end up being too long

First up we have Caramel*, which is certainly true to its name in colour. This was 2 easy coats. I wore this for 2 days (a long time for me) and there was absolutely no wear.

Next up is Crush*, a gorgeous deep red. I own absolutely nothing like this and I love it! This was 2 thin and easy coats. I thought this was going to be absolute pain to remove but I had absolutely no problems at all, which is definitely a bonus

Thirdly is Espresso*, as black as the name would suggest. I've seen on the Barry M Facebook page that this seems to be the colour that most are excited about, I know matte black is a favourite amongst many, and it certainly doesn't disappoint. This was 2 coats again, although the polish was slightly thicker that the others

Then we have Mocha*, a lovely coffee brown. This was 2 slightly thick coats. Whilst the colour isn't exactly unique, I love the effect that the matte creates for this colour. 

Finally, we have my personal favourite of the collection: Vanilla*. This is a very unique colour and it's difficult to describe, it's similar to Models Own Utopia, but with a more brown tint to it, and it is of course matte unlike Utopia. I used 2 coats for these photos but I could probably have got away with one

Overall I'm seriously impressed with this collection. They dry quickly and all only needed 2 coats for opacity. Additionally, they are also all definitely autumnal! I would definitely recommend getting these when they're released. These will retail for £3.99, will be released on the 25th September in Superdrug and October 2nd in Boots. Hopefully the next step from Barry M will be a matte topcoat!
