Barry M Matte Nail Paint

It's always nice when a product catches your eye on the beauty aisles, I was drawn to this gorgeous lime green colour. I have tried matte nail polishes in the past, i think it's a nice alternative if you want to escape the classic gloss finish. After staring in awe at the different colours available at the Barry M counter, I decided to step out of my normal circle and try something different. I would never normally choose a colour so bright and, well...green, but I thought for summer, this could be a nice change. 

For some reason I have been really attracted to bright blues, oranges and greens, I feel like this summer, statement colours are working really well for me. I purchased the Barry M Matte Nail Paint - Waikiki (£3.99) from boots. 

The product is a really nice consistency, i really love how it glides on. The brush is really easy to navigate and has a really nice size to it, you can get to every part of your nail with ease. The drying time is super fast, I didn't have to sit and wait around before I could apply another coat! In total I used 3 coats but I think that two may have been enough, I'm just picky. I really love the over all finish to the matte polish, for some reason it's really satisfying to see the finished look.  I think if you are going to go for a green polish, this is a great contender as it does have a pastel look to it, I love the colour and will be taking it on holiday with me. I thought this would be a really good base colour for a nail art design so I later used my nail art pen to create a a very modern simplistic design (you can see pictures on my instagram). I think to enhance the lasting of this product I would also apply the matte top coat. 

Have you tried any of the matte nail paints? Let me know what you thought!
