NOTD - Barry M Grey : Yay or Nay?



Yes - I finally got caught in the hype and ended up getting the oh-so-popular Barry M Nail Paint in Grey.

Oh come on, we are humans, we were created to conform with others!

On a serious note, the color is pretty chic I would say. I mean I usually don't come across people sporting such a color in the train.

It's quite unusual and is not a color that would come in my comfort zone too. But there is something about it that attracts me towards it.

I have always secretly admired dark nail paints but have never had the courage to actually sport one as they may appear slightly deviant in casual surroundings perhaps.

However this baby lets me fulfill my desire without looking over the top. It is on the darker side as you can see of course but still pretty wearable right? It may look a plain grey in the picture but I can see some deep green undertones in it which makes it more unique.

I have a weird habit where I tend to look at my nails a lot especially when I am wearing nail paint and this color is so gloomy to look at I tell you, unlike my brighter Eyeko pastels.

As always, the consistency of Barry M is great - pretty thick though. Two coats, top it up with a top coat and you are good to go! I hear they have some new shades out, I might just get some then :)

How do you guys feel about Barry M Grey then? Yay or Nay?

I have this, and I like it, but I don't love it! I thought it would be a much lighter grey. I'm going to try Rimmel's grey next!

It's yay for me. Though a little dull for my taste but I can always pair it with a bright yellow shade. :) I like the finish of the nail paint.
