Barry M Silver VS Barry M Foil

When I first saw Barry M's Foil polish launch I immediately thought of the old "Silver"
I always thought the silver came off as a "foil" or "minx" like finish so I was dubious as to whether they were just rebranding the old formula at a higher price. Being the curious blogger I am I had to test it's what I found...

Surprisingly they are totally different! I thought I'd hate the foil and begrudge paying a pound more for something I effectively already have covered from Barry M but far from it. I must stress that the pictures below show my nails after ONE COAT of the foil effects polish... that puts it way up in my estimations already but also.. it's a totally new addition to my collection. As you can see from the below pictures the silver (on my thumb and forefinger) is very much a sparkly finish. It's made up of lots of fine glitter and took three coats to achieve a full coverage. It's still a lovely polish but I have to admit if you're looking for foil... it doesn't compare. I may even go out and buy the gold one now.

Man I hate to be wrong!

Have you tried this yet?


  1. both gorgeous! might have to get the foil one! xo

  2. Ive been meaning to get the foil one, but now i want both!

  3. They look really nice! Didn't realise the Barry M Silver one looked so nice :3 x

  4. I'll have to look for these next time I'm shopping, think I'll end up going for both. I like the look of the two of them xx

  5. I sooo want the foil polish now! I wasn't going to bother as like you I already have various "silvers" but the foil one looks so much smoother :) xx

  6. im glad that you have done this because ive been wondering the same thing for ages... i think i need the foil now :D
