Break The Rules! Summer Shades In Winter43 Comments

It’s tempting to wear the darker nail polish colours in the winter but there are no rules that say you can’t go bright and vibrant on those cold chilly and grey days. These shades are right on the ‘nail’ for a burst of summer during the winter.

Barry M is a London Based makeup brand that will make autumn/winter the new season to look forward to!  An array of nail colours perfect for all skin tones from Mahogany to honey, no more black or navy polish to wear with the autumn typical wardrobe, the Barry M varnish in coral is the perfect colour pop for the autumn/winter season that floods the shops with browns, blacks and grey!

This brand of varnish shows how you don’t have to pay over £10 for a quality polish. It leaves a smooth and shiney finish plus it lasts for days (minus the instense spring cleaning session of course lol) - tried and tested!

Tips! Before you use your main nail polish use a clear varnish or base coat before the main colour to protect the nails. Darker or brighter colours can damage and stain your nails leaving it an odd colour!

Add an extra kick to the finishing look your nails by using the Barry M clear varnish over the top of your dried nail varnish. I use the Barry M brand of clear varnish even when I use other more expensive brands. Pictures 1 & 2 are examples of this. Picture 3 is without the clear varnish top coat. See the difference?

I plan to wear the coral shade with a gold wrist watch and an abundance of autumn winter staples, including furs, tweeds, leathers and the seasons must have; a camel coat.

Buy Barry M for £2.95 online or at all good Boots or Superdrug stores.  If you’re lucky and feel spoilt for choice on the colours you can pick up two for £5, and bag yourself the lilac shade that will have people stopping you in the street asking how you got your summer fix in the autumn.

    Dont forget we are in the 21st century Marian.They are very smart.You know what, my little niece have been warned not to watch any african movie cuz of the bad scenes our actors/actresses portray these days.I went to their house and she came to sit next to me whiles I was watching a movie.Well as a big sis I asked her to go into her room to watch her disneyland stuffs but she wouldn’t. So then as we watch the movie,these part came with two people kissing, Eh come and see madam, She immediately closed her eyes and hid her face in her palms.I was like ” “Ehh nkolaa mu aba di3 mu hu y3 hu papa”so you know what they are actually doing in the movie?hmmm.”Endi3 shw3 preko mom na suya ni ntem”…lol meaning its better you watch and learn early.Anyway kids of today are no more naive like we thought they were.Eh not forgetting my younger sister, She would pretend coughing when a scene like that pops up and then walks up to me and goes like “Adjoa menum nsuo”Am like “Twen na yen shw3 movie ni nwie”.Azaaaa kids all over the world ooo…

    I agree with you sassy.Although brighter colours are usually for the summer, I feel they can also be good for winter too.Well because its cold and everybody is kinda moody due to the weather, so then I guess application of some brighter colors could really help.Ok, Am not sure about others but I personally have a big deal with colours.It does a lot of good to me, especially to my mood.luv the 2nd nail polish.lilac!!!Anyway seriously I would ve called that colour purple instead of lilac…lol

    ohh yeah and one thing Ghanaians need to stop is COMBINATION. They want to match everything they wear like seriously is getting outmoded. And talking about colors, Some colors when is on wont make you feel that cold.. like a black coat..

    If it is the colours and the black skin u r commenting, fine but I don’t agree with u on how u talk abt the person’s fingers. Can u reframe ur comments pls b’cos whoever she is has been kind enough to allow her fingers to be used for us all to see. Thanks
