Barry M, Dusky Mauve. (Duper Alert!)

Reactions: 

Finally fall is here! Well, not really. We are still experiencing summer heat here in SoCal but the nights are definitely cooling off and I think everyone is happy about that! I normally love summer but it was especially hot this year. It made it not so much fun.

As you know (or I hope you know by now) I love neutrals! Dusky Mauve is a very special neutral because not only is it a great dark taupe brown color it also has a soft pink shimmer to it. There is a bit of a purple tone to this as well. This is a dupe to Chanel's Paradoxal. A really great dupe that is cruelty-free (Chanel isn't really cruelty-free even though many say the company is).

The formula is excellent; thin yet easy to manipulate on the nail. It's nicely opaque at 2 easy coats. I especially loved the brush; it wasn't a wide brush yet it fanned out nicely on the nail. I got a really nice line at the cuticle. My index is peeling a bit at the free edge which is why there are a few bubbles in the photo. Dry time was average. I finished my nails off with a coat of In A Hurry; my new go-to top coat.

This is the very first Barry M I have tried. I have a few more in my stash and I look forward to using them soon since this was such a great experience. I also have been spotting some of their new lines and I think I will have to indulge in getting some more Barry M's.

You can find Barry M at Ninja Polish here in the USA. In the UK you can order directly from their website.
