Monday mani – Barry M Matte  in Waikiki 

Happy mani day guys! Yup we are pretending it’s not really Monday morning here. As I have’nt featured a nail post in a little while I thought I would be perfect timing to share what’s currently on my nails. 

This won’t last long on my nails though as today marks the start of me giving my bathroom a makeover. I’m excited to get started as it’s been long over due. 

Anyway slight digression there, back to my nails.  


I started of by using one of the Matte shades from Barry M. This is Waikiki, which is a yellow toned lime. Boy do I love this nail polish, it’s such a fresh spring green.

 I have paired this with metallic tape in pink and gold, to create a very simple tartan effect. I had to finish of with a top coat to ensure that the tape lasts longer so unfortunately you can’t see the matte effect on the finished manicure. 

I have taken a picture prior to completion though so you can see the matte effect of the polish. I think for a simple manicure on it’s own this gives a pretty cool finish.


The polish itself was really easy to work with and had good opacity with two coats, what you would expect from Barry M.

What do you think? Do you like the simple design of this mani?

Bye for now, Katy 🙂

    1. Barry M’s offering is great, I had the Ciatte dolls house collection last year, which was all matte and have struggled to get on with it. This is cheaper and much better

        1. I wouldn’t like to put a number on it, let’s just say I have a very small drawer full. Longevity wise I find it can vary from brand to brand. Though If you pick something up from a pound shop it’s already close to end of shelf life so won’t last as long regardless of brand.
          I chuck mine when they go tacky and difficult to work with.
