day two hundred and twenty four, barrym red black

you know what bothers me? MISLEADING POLISH NAMES! i was all excited for this one...even in the bottle it seemed like a really cool looking sanguine red. and then i put it on...and it was just a red jelly. there's nothing WRONG with it...but it is nothing like what i imagined!!! i was hoping for some sort of variation on zoya 'blair' or even one of the lippmann just a humdrum red. AND application was not the best either, definitely on the watery side. i feel like barryM are diamond cosmetics poor cousin. they're just not *there* yet in terms of application/formula...sometimes they get it right...but not all the time. so that kind of bugs me, i definitely like consistency in a brand (and understandably wouldn't want to purchase a polish and not know if it was going to apply nicely) hm. i'll let the pictures speak for themselves, they are colour accurate.

i just am disappointed so i feel like i can't step back and say something nice about it!

let's see if anyone actually reads this far! things at dailypolish are about to change (for the better!) and a celebration is in order! so stay tuned and tell your friends!

Oooo, change can be good. I have to say that I love that you post a different polish every day. I come here every day knowing I'm going to see something new. Thank you for your dedication. :)

thank you! it's nice to be appreciated :D. it all started as a project to keep me occupied while i was unemployed and it's really taken off...i hope to continue this blog indefinitely! plus it totally justifies buying new nail polish! :)

It's a pretty red on you. Some polishes are so disappointing when you put them on. I've run across a few.
