Monday Blues: Barry M Blueberry Ice Cream

Hello loves! I'm still on vacation so today's Monday Blues post is a scheduled one. I really hope everything goes well with these because I've had issues before with scheduled posts. Since I'm in London I definitely need to show you another British polish today. This is the last of the Barry M's i got a few weeks ago and I picked it up because it was on sale for like 2₤. I sure didn't regret it!

Blueberry Ice Cream is a beautiful sky blue creme. The name isn't very appropriate in my opinion because blueberries are a lot darker. The best thing about this polish is how vivid the color is. The pictures make it look like it's popping out of the screen and I love that! I was curious to know if I had any dupes in my collection, so I did a little comparison that will be on the blog tomorrow. The final verdict is no dupes! Yay!

The formula is good, like in all Barry M polishes. It's on the thicker side so you have to be careful while polishing, or you could just use a few drops of thinner. The pigmentation is great! You could even get away with one coat if your nails are on the short side. I had some visible nail line with one coat, so I did 2. I also added one coat of Seche Vite to make it dry super fast!

I think this is a great color that everyone should have in their collection. It's the perfect summer shade and with Barry M's great formula and low prices, you can never go wrong!
