Today I've got one of the first new launches of 2017! Barry M's new Frosted Cupcakes collection is a set of four pastel shades with delicate iridescent flakies in the polish. I think it's a cool little twist on the traditional pastel shades that are released at the start of the year. I'm a sucker for pastels AND glitter so let's see how these new shades stack up to ye olde Spring faithful, the pastel creme.
All of the following swatches are three thin coats and no top coat as I want you to see what the texture of the polish is like.
Thoughts? The idea behind the collection is pretty darn cool since I'm partial to applying a flaky top coat on occasion. Application wasn't too bad. The wide brush is present and makes meeting the cuticle pretty easy. Apply in thin coats rather than thick as it seems to dry very fast and get tacky easily. You don't want to spend too long working with it. It tends to get a little thin on the tip so it might be worth doing an extra coat just on the top. With the flakies, the polish does have a texture and some glitter pieces can stick up at the ends (as you can see in some swatches) Beware of this when applying and use a top coat, be it matte or gloss.
Barry M's Frosted Cupcakes collection is available from Superdrug and Boots from Wednesday 18th January 2017, priced at £3.99.
