Happy Friday!
Today I have a few colors to show you from across the pond. I recently received these pretties from my friend Vikki in the U.K., and had to wear them all immediately. These are all 2 coats.

First up, Barry M Berry Ice Cream, a beautiful light purple creme.

I think out of all the non-U.S. brands I own, I have the most Barry M’s. I have a huge collection of them, because they are AWESOME. The application is always perfect, and I love their color range.

Here is another of the newer colors, Barry M Blueberry Ice Cream, a light blue cream that is bright, but not neon. I’ve seen this one pop up on a few other blogs lately, and I can see why it is so popular!

I thought it might be useful to include some comparisons for this one, so here are a few other blues. Thumb to pinky: Orly Snowcone, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Blue Blast, Zoya Robyn, Barry M Blueberry Ice Cream, and OPI Suzi Says Feng Shui. None of them are exact dupes, but the SH Insta-Dri is very close. Snowcone has much more purple in it, Robyn is more neon, and SSFS isn’t really close at all, but I included it anyway for reference!

Another nice U.K. brand is Boots No. 7. Although I only own a couple of these, I’ve had good luck with this brand and no complaints. Here’s Totally Teal, a dark jelly-ish teal. I have never considered teal to be a vampy color, but this sure does a good job of convincing me:

And lately for today…Boots Violetta, a dark purple creme.

As I mentioned earlier, I have a TON of Barry M’s as well as other U.K. and foreign brands…so I may have those for you next Friday! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the weekend! 🙂
