Barry M Molten Metals | Swatch & Review

So recently, on one of my YouTube videos, someone commented asking what the Barry M Molten Metals were like. So, I thought I’d write a blog on that exact subject.

So I’m going to talk about three of the polishes, one from the first Molten Metal collection, and two from the latest collection. 

So, let’s get right into it.

I’m going to start with ‘Bronze Bae.’ This polish is from the first Molten Metal collection for spring/summer 2016.

This is a light bronze metallic polish. Here’s my swatch photo.๐Ÿ‘‡

Pretty nice right? The photo shows three coats and no top coat. I have to say that I use this so much in my nail art. My bottle is almost empty. 

I’m going to say it from the get go, these polishes are thin. But from my experience, sometimes building thinner polishes up enhances the colour. But you do have to be careful, thinner polishes, these polishes in particular, do like to run. I got a bit of pooling in my cuticles several times. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Next is ‘Blue Glacier.’ This polish is from the spring/summer 2017 collection.

This is a gorgeous ice blue, cool toned metallic polish. Again, the picture shows three coats and no top coat. This polish has a slightly thicker consistency than Bronze Bae, but not by much.

Here is my swatch video of Blue Glacier, I only did the one application video because they all apply the same.

The last polish is ‘Holographic Lights.’ Also from the 2017 collection.

As far as I know, Barry M haven’t done a linear holographic before. So I was seriously excited to get my hands on this. Holographic Lights is my favourite out of the three. Again, this picture shows three coats and no top coat. The holo doesn’t show a lot in ordinary light, it just looks like your basic silver polish. However, you do get that gorgeous linear holo goodness in direct sunlight or artificial light, such as a desk lamp. 

Barry M retweeted my macro of the polish and people really liked it! 

So, all in all, I do like the Molten Metals. They are good, but in my opinion, they’re nothing spectacular. Certainly nothing to write home about. Well, maybe I’d write about Holographic Lights… ๐Ÿ˜‚ Holosexual over here. ๐Ÿ™Œ

Thank you for reading,
