|Textured Trio - Barry M Vs Nails Inc|
Now, I have had the Nails Inc. Concrete polish in Monument, for a good few months - link, and I absolutely love it. The quality is fantastic, and the finish is just as rough and abrasive as you'd want for a polish aptly named 'Concrete'. However at £12 a bottle, it isn't the most purse friendly polish to ever grace my finger tips.
So, when BarryM recently introduced their 'textured' polishes, for £3.99 a pot, I just HAD to buy some and check the results...
In my opinion the BarryM pots are just fantastic value for money. They may not have quite the same intensity in roughness, as the Nails Inc polish, but they create a very very similar effect, and for literally a third of the price it almost seems like a no brainer.
Having said that, you may need to apply more than one coat to get the intensity you desire from the BarryM polishes, whereas the Nails Inc needs one coat, and it does not budge.
I think the BarryMs are definitely a fantastic, purse friendly dupe for the Nails Inc, and I highly recommend trying one of the mouth-watering pastel shades, as the trend for textured nails is going nowhere. However, if you want to splash out on, yes, a slightly better quality, more intense polish, then the nails inc are for you. But the differences are really, so so minimal.
The Polishes themselves are - Mint Green is 'Ridley Road' by BarryM, Pastel Pink is Kingsland Road, also a BarryM number, and the Lime is Monument by Nails Inc.
What do you think to these polishes? Would you go Nails Inc. or BarryM?
Honestly I am not a fan of the textured nails! But I love the colors :D! Stop by won't you!ReplyDelete
Well there are loads of nail trends right now, I just love testing them all out, and honestly I love these! You're right, the colours are great, so fresh for spring :)Delete
Such lovely colours xReplyDelete
Thanks Hannah :)Delete
Not sure about textured. They look great but how easy is the varnish to remove? xxReplyDelete
They aren't as difficult as glitter by a long way. I just use a regular polish remover and after holding the pad on my nail for a good few seconds, I find it comes off relatively easily, definitely not as much effort as glitter etc :)Delete
