Barry M Green Origin Collection

Barry M Green Origin collection swatches






Another completely new release from Barry M is the Green Origin collections, which  you have probably already seen in store by now. The Green Origin Nail Paints are 70% natural origin polishes. They are made of a new, environmentally sensitive, low chemical formulation that is made with natural ingredients like corn, potato and wheat and they have a high gloss finish. These polishes are also vegan and cruelty free.

There are 8 polishes in this collection and one basecoat/topcoat. So let's take a look at them.

Butterscotch

Butterscotch is a lovely, dark mustard colour. I'll admit, that in the bottle this colour looked sort of poopy to me, but I quickly changed my mind. On the nail this colour is gorgeous and is a perfect autumnal colour.

All of these polishes are perfect in 2 coats, although Boysenberry and Rock Pool could easily pass as one coaters. They are very pigmented and the formula is fantastic. I honestly didn't know what to expect in terms of the formula but they very much surpassed whatever my expectations were. The polishes are a dream to apply, they dry pretty quickly and to a high gloss finish. All of the above swatches are 2 coats with no topcoat. That's right, that shine is all their own.

When it comes to the colours in this collection, although they are all gorgeous, I am a little disappointed in the colour choices. I think they could have included loads more unique colours to go along with the unique formula but I am excited to see what colours they bring to the collection in the future. I did experience some staining with Night Sky and I expect some of the other polishes could too because they are so pigmented, so make sure to have a good few coats of the basecoat on when wearing these polishes.

The basecoat & topcoat is pretty good too. In this photo, the two nails on the left are topcoated, so you can see that even though the Nail Paints are high gloss, the topcoat does still add some extra shiny to them. I haven't tried it as a basecoat but will definitely in the future.

All in all, I am excited to see where this collection goes and if they decide to use the same formula on their other ranges in the future. Once again, Barry M are leading in the high street polishes and for a fantastic price.

These polishes are available from BarryM.com and Superdrug instore and online for £3.99 each. Be sure to check them out.
