Barry M 'Twinkle Twinkle' & 'Nutcracker' (Superdrug Exclusives)

Hello! Way back in September, I posted swatches of two new Barry M polishes exclusive to Boots (post here). Today I am back with the two Superdrug exclusives, 'Twinkle Twinkle' & 'Nutcracker'. Again, these both have a gorgeous sparkly foil finish and are perfect for the festive season. Read on for full swatches and more info!

A little bit random, but this is also my 200th blog post - yay!

Barry M 'Twinkle Twinkle' & 'Nutcracker' (Superdrug Exclusives) @acertainbeccaa

'Twinkle Twinkle' is a rose gold/champagne shimmery foil. It has a gorgeous smooth formula, and applies very easily and evenly. It is a little bit sheer on the first coat but builds up completely in two. This is a bit more pink/blush toned than it is picking up in my photos. Below is two coats and topcoat.

Here's a quick picture of the bottle alongside both Barry M 'Silver Foil' (left) and 'Gold Foil' (right) for a colour comparison.

'Nutcracker' is a hot pink shimmery foil. Again it has a lovely smooth formula, and applies easily. It is a bit more opaque than 'Twinkle Twinkle', but still the slightly sheer on the first coat. You might be able to get away with one thick coat as I did mine quite thin. Below is two coats and topcoat.

What do you think? I just love how sparkly these are. Metallics and foils seem to have made a big comeback this year, and I am loving it! It's taken me long enough to get these up that there are now two new Superdrug exclusives ('Gingerbread' & 'Icicle') that are free in a little set when you spend over £7 on Barry M. I'm trying to be good but I might accidentally get them for myself!

Both of these are currently available in Superdrug, in store and online. You can find 'Twinkle Twinkle' here and 'Nutcracker' here.

Hope to see you in the next post!
