Barry M 'Enchanted' & 'Snowflake' (Boots Exclusives)

Hello! Today I have swatches of two new Barry M Boots exclusives polishes to share. These are part of their new Autumn/Winter releases alongside new coconut polishes, a black gelly, a quick dry topcoat, and two Superdrug exclusives. The Boots exclusives are called 'Enchanted' and 'Snowflake'. Read on for full swatches and more info!

For both swatches, I also used the new Barry M 'Wet Set' quick dry topcoat. It applied easily, dried very quickly and very smoothly, and did the job perfectly! Barry M's standard topcoat was my go to before I discovered quick dry and after a bit more testing, this may be my new favourite.

'Enchanted' is a brown base full of a coppery red shifting glitter. There's also some purple in there, but I can't quite work out if it's from the base or the glitter - either way it's gorgeous! The formula is very smooth and easy to apply, and fairly close to being a one coater. I did need a second to cover some tiny patches and to deepen the colour. Below is two coats and topcoat.

'Snowflake' is a silver metallic foil full of fine silver glitter. This has a very similar formula to 'Enchanted', although slightly more sheer. It still covers well on the first coat, but definitely needs a second to cover completely. This dries so sparkly! Below is two coats and topcoat

What do you think? I actually really like both of these, especially on my new shorter nails. I think 'Enchanted' is my favourite of the two, it reminds me of all of the different colours of Autumn leaves. Metallics and foils seem to be making a comeback at the moment, and I have to say I'm loving it!

'Enchanted' and 'Snowflake' officially release on Wednesday (28th) in Boots stores and online. I managed to find them in my store early, so it is worth a look now!

Hope to see you in the next post!
