NOTD Barry M Peach Melba

As I featured on Monday in my haul I got my first two Barry M polishes. I've been reading a lot about them, but they aren't easy available in Belgium. And as I was busy compiling my shopping cart on a Dutch webshop, I noticed they had Barry M stored. This colour appealed to me above all others. I don't have a lot of peachy polishes, so I was curious how it would suit me.

The bottle is straight and looks really cute, I like the thicker glass at the bottom - the golden lettering is a bit tacky in my eyes. The brush itself is tiny and reminds me a lot of Essie brushes. I used 2 coats as I do with most polishes and this provides enough coverage. Applying the polish goes well, but be a bit aware of streaking. The colour was insanely hard to capture on camera, in real life it's a mixture of the 2 photos. On the left it looks a bit paler/more nude and on the right it's too bright & orange due to the flash. But it is a lovely colour and I like it a lot, I'm an NC/NW15-20 for reference. If your skin tone is a lot darker than this, the polish probably won't be your thing as it appears too orange then.

One thing that I dislike about this polish is its tipwear... After 1,5days I noticed I already had tipwearing on a few nails. Usually with my other polishes I get tipwear after 4-5days. I always use the same base and topcoat so it really is the polish. And this will probably prevent me from ordering more Barry M in the future... sadly!
