Barry M Nail Paint - Teal - Dupe for Chanel's Azure?

What does one do when one's car unexpectedly passes the NCT?  One skedaddles to Superdrug for a little celebratory look, that's what.  As I meandered down the make up aisle, I noticed that the Barry M nail paints were all in stock, not like in Boots where they've removed them all for some reason.  Anyway, my eyeballs fell on to this chap and I had to have it.


Barry M's Nail Paint in Teal is just gorgeous.  It's a mix of blue and green with a slight purple undertone to it that's more visible in the shade.  It has a metallic finish and in the sunlight, it's just perfection.  It's one of those polishes that looks different in different light, so prepare to be one of those lunatics tilting her hands in the light.




Now, I'd read CherrySue's post on Chanel's Azure and Bel-Argus from their summer 2013 collection and had decided I was going to pick up Azure.  Em, not anymore.  I don't know if Teal is an exact dupe for Azure, but it's close enough for moi and cha-ching, I've saved myself a good few bob.  Bel-Argus is another story though, it's bootiful.



If mermaid nails are your thing, then you're going to love Teal.  If you just love pretty nail polishes, then ditto.  Teal cost me the princely sum of €3.85 and I blahddy love it!

  2. OOOh thats's a lovely colour! I might have to go over to Superdrug for a sneaky purchase!
    I wonder if something's going on with Barry M in Boots then as in my local Boots (in Newcastle, England) they were all gone from the shelves too. I thought it was just lack of stock or something. Seems strange though

    1. Very strange, I saw signs saying Boots removed polishes because they weren't up to scratch, not sure what else.

      Love this colour though!

    2. I'm not sure of the craic exactly, but I bought a few nail polishes from Barry M (the gelly ones) and they chipped within a couple of hours of application, could have been a manufacturing malfunction all across the board! I got mine in Superdrug too :/ Sent them a wee email to ask over a week ago and no reply :(

    3. Oh that is a shame! I love nothing better than nipping in with my advantage card and spending my points on a Barry m nail varnish

  4. Barry M said they'd removed the bottles from Boots due to an "overfilling problem" apparently some of the batches were overfilled and bottles were cracking. Which is weird. Anyway, I like this colour, but I'm not mad about the finish - I have a similar one from New Look that I like with a matte topcoat. Great find!
