After being gifted this Barry M nail varnish by my beautiful friend Paulina I have been wearing it relentlessly for the last fortnight. I am not even kidding, I have truly fallen in love.
This nail varnish is Arabian, a duo-chrome colour of gold and green. It is so vivid and striking and honestly reminds me of mermaids (particularly Disney’s Ariel who would totally rock this colour if animation sprung to life).
The varnish is part of Barry M’s Aquarium collection which hosts four other duo-chrome varnishes and two glitter top coats.
The duo-chromes are all named after seas, the pink/gold is Mediterranean, the peach/gold is Caspian and blue/gold is Pacific.
Arabian goes on very well and you may even get away with the one coat if you are careful and dainty (unfortunately, I am not). I always finish with a top coat and pray for a miracle that I will not chip my nails. You could always opt for the Aquarium glitter top coats (Mermaid and Treasure Chest) if you want a bit more sparkle.
I am now a serious fan of duo-chromes and hope to adopt the other three Aquarium varnishes. In respect of their name they are beautifully aquatic and I can never resist a vivid green manicure (perhaps I am odd).
What do you think of Arabian? What is your favourite colour nail varnish?
