BARRY M BLUE MOON

So, who says pastel nails are just for spring and summer? I have loved wearing deep wine reds and navy on my nails, but last week I got a craving for something lighter and stumbled upon Barry M Blue Moon

In the bottle it looks light blue with a pretty aqua shimmer but once it’s painted on the nails the shimmer is almost invisible. The formula is very sheer, so it took three coats to get it this opaque. I really like the colour though and it seems different to the other light blues I have, I actually like that it’s sheer! 

If there is any pastel shade you can wear in the winter it’s definitely light blue. If it’s good enough for Jo Malone’s Christmas collection, then it’s good enough for me!

    This is such a lovely pastel shade! I always love your recommendations for nail polish because we have quite similar taste :)

    Like you I’ve been loving nothing but the darker shades but it’s definitely a good idea to bring out the pastels to switch things up!

    Beautiful color!! I love it. You should check out RGB Dew. It’s a pastel, cucumbery green. I haven’t been able to wear anything else since I got it. It’s gorgeous and completely cold-weather appropriate.

    I have had this polish for a while and I love it as well! I think it’s going to look even prettier with a glitter top coat! x

    This looks like the perfect icy blue for winter – I think it would look amazing with a white shimmer over the top!

    Such a lovely shade! I’m wearing Nails Inc Elizabeth Street at the moment, I feel like it makes my hands look a little more tanned than they are in reality :)

    This definitely isn’t the most traditional autumn shade but I can never say no to pastels, especially a gorgeous pale blue like this!
