Barry M have done it again.

Last week I finally managed to get my hands on Barry M’s newest addition to their nail collection- Dusky Mauve.

Dusky Mauve-313 has been compared on numerous blogs to Chanel’s Paradoxal polish.

Now as a student, I would never be able to afford a Chanel nail polish so £2.95 is definitely more my budget.

Now the colour in the bottle is a tad unappealing to me, I bought it with my boyfriend who described the colour as “sick in a bottle” charming.

But boy oh boy is it a different story once on your nails.

I wasn’t expecting to like this colour. I’m not really a fan of dark polishes, I think it makes my nails look really small and my hands look pale and I hate being pale.

But I was very very surprised 🙂 it’s a gorgeous rich slate grey with a beautiful shimmery purple underneath which shows up in the light.

It’s such a pretty, rich, sophisticated colour which when looking at Chanel Paradoxal swatches online it’s pretty similar.

I think the reason I love this colour so much because it’s not just one colour it’s got another dimension.

Dusky Mauve is definitely one of my new favourite colours and it’s a must have colour for winter 🙂 🙂

Barry M you’ve created another winner.
