Barry M Peach Melba

Today for your viewing pleasure, I’ve got more photos than necessary of a plain peach creme! Heh. I like the photos and don’t feel like choosing. This is Barry M Peach Melba, a very nice creme peach shade.

Shown are three coats, and my index has a layer of Poshe topcoat overtop to cover up a big smudge that I got from removing a cat hair that got into the wet polish before I could take the pictures!

It’s a pastel shade of coral-toned peach, not too pale and not too bright. Disclaimer: these photos were taken in sunlight as the sun was beginning to set, so they are more orange-toned than in other lighting situations.

I found the formula a little thick and hard to level, hence the need for three coats. I added a few drops of thinner to the polish. All that may have had something to do with the hot and humid weather. (I suspect this might be a frequent theme in my posts for the next few months… “It was thick and I had to add thinner, but…”)

I found that it dried very quickly, but again the weather might have been a factor…

I really like peaches and corals lately; I’ll have to do some more comparison posts for these shades! Especially since these ones turned out a little too orange!

  1. Haha—laughing at your mention of having to remove a cat hair. It happens to me all the time! I love the polish; it looks great on you. Sad to say, it looks horrible on me. Coral is fine, though. BTW, I’ve been wanting to try the Barry M line, since it is vegan. How do you like it in general, and is it high-end, price-wise? Thanks!

    • Hi Sandy! Haha yes it’s a never ending source of frustration that I can’t seem to get a manicure done without having cat hair in it *somewhere*!

      I really like the Barry M’s that I’ve tried! The lime green is a nice semi-jelly, and Aqua Blue & Aqua Green are sheer sparkly duochromes great for layering over darker shades… I have a couple more that I’ve just swatched on nail wheels so far but they seem really nice too. And no, they aren’t that expensive! I got some of mine on ebay and the price wasn’t too bad (I don’t remember exactly), and more recently from the online North America-based store Harlow & Co. where they sell them for
      7$ each.
