Barry M – Magnetic Burgundy Review

Hey! I am so excited to show you guys this beauty by Barry M! I think it is such a different and unique concept thus making it original because I havn’t seen anyΒ other nail polishes do this!


So, when I was in Superdrug yesterday, I also picked myself one of these. I saw an advert for these in a recent issue of Cosmopolitan magazine and was intriqued by the idea of using this magnetic effect to create a different nail design! So ofcourse, I had to buy one and try it out.

Boy, was I glad i did!

Below is a picture of how it looks:

I tend to get amazed by little things but, how could you not be amazed at this?!

The Barry M Magnetic Burgundy comes in it’s usual bottle with an extra cap with the magnetic plate (as shown in the picture on top). The bottle also has instructions on how you use it to make sure you get the effect shown.

All you do is:

– Apply base coat.
– Apply one coat of the Magnetic Burgundy and wait till it dries.
– Apply second coat and hover the magnetic plate over your nail for about 5 seconds.

– Don’t forget to add a clear top coat after it has dried.

And… VOILA! Instant Nail Effect in seconds.

I love it!

The Burgundy colour itself is also very pretty and applies very well.
I think it’s a very unique concept and super easy to do. Would definitely recommend this!

Now I’m tempted to buy the other shades…

Have any of you tried these? πŸ™‚

Hope this review was helpful. I also bought another Barry M nail varnish. Another effect one. Will do a separate post on that one.
