Barry M Autumn/Winter 2013 Royal Glitter Nail Polish Collection

Hey everyone! Today I have another Barry M collection to show you, this time the Royal Glitter collection, which is a collection of textured glitters. These are just like the OPI Liquid Sand polishes, but much much cheaper, and definitely a great alternative for those who don't want to spend too much! These polishes will be released on the 25th September in Superdrug and the 2nd October in Boots and will be sold for £3.99 each.

For all these pictures I used 2 coats of Seche Vite on the index and ring fingers to show you what the polishes look like with topcoat. The rest of the post will be after the jump otherwise it will be a bit too long

First up is Dutchess* which is a gorgoues silvery-lilac glitter. Out of all the glitters this has the largest pieces of glitter, but I really like the effect it gives. This was 2 easy coats. I absolutely love this polish both with and without topcoat but I'm certainly curious to see whether it works as a topper as well.

Next up is Majesty*, a sparkling gold which certainly suits its name. I actually really like this both with and without topcoat, but I think topcoat just gives it that extra something, and also I get a bit cringy about the feel of textured after a while. This was 2 coats

Then we have Princess*, a mixture of pink and gold glitter. With topcoat the shine on this is absolutely gorgeous, and for that reason I probably prefer it with topcoat, but I think it's entirely down to personal preference on textured polishes. This was 2 coats

 Next is Lady*, a shimmery white glitter which just definitely makes me think of wedding dresses. Top coat made very little difference to the colour of the polish, but again it serves to smooth it out, and it still stays as a gorgeous polish. This was 2 coats

And last, but 100% not least, is my favourite of the whole collection, Countess*. It's incredibly different to describe the colour of this polish because it shines differently in all lights, but it's easiest to describe as a dark purple with an amazing amount of glitter. Unlike the rest of the polishes (except perhaps Princess to an extent), this really comes to life with topcoat, making it seem like an entirely different polish.

I love this polish so much that I've actually worn it all week, and not got sick of it! Definitely some kind of record for me

Overall I love these polishes and I would definitely recommend them, especially Countess
I know a lot of people have been wondering about removal. I normally use the PVA glue removal method for glitter, but I really couldn't be bothered waiting for it to dry this time so I just applied and removed these with my usual polish remover. It took a few seconds longer than usual but I didn't particularly struggle. That might just be because my (70p) remover is good, or because they're not too hard to remove, I don't know, but I certainly wouldn't let removal issues put you off buying these polishes.
