Barry M Aqua Glitter

Hey everyone!
This isn't actually a particularly new release from Barry M anymore, but it is however one of my favourite glitter polishes, which I wanted to share with you all.
Aqua Glitter is what it says on the bottle really. It's the most perfect aqua shade - other blue glitters I have tried have never been just the right shade of blue that I wanted, until I picked up this one. It is aqua microglitter and bigger pieces of aqua glitter in a clear base.

The pictures above show 2 coats of Aqua Glitter over 1 coat of Modes Own Top Turquoise. Aqua Glitter is opaque by itself in about 4 coats, but I prefer to layer it over a similar base colour as I hate waiting so long for my nails to dry. Using just 2 coats, the polish dries fully in about 5-10 minutes.
In terms of lasting power, this tends to last about 3 days before chipping, which isn't a problem for me as I change my nails quite often, but if you want something long-lasting then this isn't it.
The pictures don't really show just how sparkly it is in real life - I always get people commenting on my nails when I wear this.
A major plus point for me is that although it's a glitter polish, it comes off so easily! The only reason I don't wear glitter polish all the time is because of how difficult it can be to remove. This, however, comes off almost as easily as any ordinary non-glitter polish!
Have any of you tried this shade?


  1. This is really cute :) I find blue is really hard to wear but this polish looks more wearable :)

    1. Yes it's lovely :) it's not too in your face which is why I like it & thinks its easy to wear :) xx

  2. Hey Hannah, loving this colour! And so cool that it comes off easily, that's my biggest bugbear with glitter polish :-)

    1. I hate that about glitter polishes too! This is the easiest to remove of all the glitter polishes I have tried xx
