Black Red

Barry M Nail Varnish in Black Red (similar) / Essie Lacy Not Racy 

As you know I am a huge nude nails fan but every now and again I push myself to try something a little different. This time I reached for an incredibly old Barry M polish, I think I actually got this free at a Clothes Show years ago. Surprisingly it was still in good condition! I do love Barry M nail varnish, it is so easy to apply, the brush coats the nail without going all over your finger, it only requires two coats to get good coverage and I always seem to get around 5 days chip free, pretty good, right? 

This deep burgundy red is a classic winter shade and I actually really like it, the exact one I am wearing is no longer available to buy so I have linked a couple that are very similar. I think I am going to purchase the Essie one as well! 

What is your favourite winter nail shade?


  1. I have on Essie's Wicked at the moment, it's really similar to a Chanel one - a deep dark red. Great post!

  16. I have been looking for the perfect black red for this time of year and I can't seem to find one. I'll definitely be looking at the Barry M and the Essie colours.
