Autumn nail colours by Barry M – Sunset Daylight Curing and Matte Nail Paint

Autumn is now officially under way and winter is rearing its chilly head which means all my make-up changes to match the season!

Cue Barry M in Plum On Baby from the Sunset Daylight Curing range the perfect winter season shade of purple and Matte Nail Paint in Crush which is a gorgeous wine colour.


I’ll start with the Sunset Daylight Curing polish

It has a gorgeous shine to it it almost looks like salon gel polish!

The application was smooth and easy and two costs did the trick. It dried in a decent amount of time too, I probably left ten/fifteen minutes in between coats for it to be fully dry.

The sunset daylight during topcoat is meant to be the only one used with this so I applied this last, curing round the edges of my nails.

I was impressed with its staying power as it lasted a good 4 days before chipping which is so good for a drugstore polish.

Overall I was pleased with this polish a great one from Barry M once again! At £4.99 a piece and it’s usually on offer at Boots so you can’t go wrong really!

Next up the Matte Nail Paint 


This is the polar opposite to the above as it has a matte finish and isn’t at all shiny.

The application is nice and easy and I hardly made any mess on my skin (and usually I do!)

It glides on shiny and within minutes its matte! It dries super quick too.

Pair with the matte topcoat curing the ends and you’re good to go. The topcoat also dries quick.

When it’s on the nails it actually feels nice and soft which I’ve never experienced with nail varnish before (yes I actually stroked my nail..!)

The bad thing however is it chipped at the edges in the first day, boo! It continued to get worse by the second day and by the third I had to take it off. A little disappointing but great for a weekend polish with a difference!

Buy it for £3.99 from Boots and Superdrug.

I love these colours they’re perfect for winter and you can really mix it up with different finishes!

Has anyone else tried these polished? What did they think? Let me know below!

    Matte polishes are notorious for poor performance! I feel like they’re good for 1 day wear and that’s IT. I really like the Sunset Daylight Curing polish though – sounds like a high quality formula! The shades is perfect for Autumn too.

    Matte nails often chip so quickly 🙁 I love the finish but the lasting power is usually disappointing. xx Anne
