NOTD: Barry M Pink Flamingo

Pink Flamingo, an orange pink cream color released by Barry M last summer, may quite possibly be the most difficult shade to capture in photos: none of the swatches I've seen do it justice and nor does mine, but hey, I really tried. At least, the photos below manage to convey its neonness (yes, it is a word) and high shine, but the color itself is much more on the orange side in real life.

I applied 2 to 3 coats on the nails that needed some help and no top coat. The quality of the polish is very satisfactory, but a little more difficult to apply than, say, Barry M Raspberry.

I have to admit that I was very hesitant to paint my nails this blinding color; I had it in my drawer for weeks but had been putting the application off. I guess I'm a bit slow on the bright nails trend, I felt the same uncertainty before applying Barry M Bright Pink for the first time, but in the end, I loved it. Are there any shades that you can't bear on your nails? xxx


  1. I absolutely adore this shade, it's such a unique colour! Your application is perfect too!

  2. Glad that I'm not the only one that thinks Barry M Raspberry has a gorgeous formula :) This shade looks great on you!

  3. @Lillian: The color really is one of the kind, and it takes some time getting used to! Well, the application wasn't all that perfect, but thank you sweetie :) xxx

    @The Student's Guide To Nail Polish: Raspberry is one of my all time favs! Thanks, hun xxx

  4. I don't think I'll ever like yellow polish on me.. that shade by the way is really pretty!:D
    ...and everything girly under the sun!

  5. Yellow can be very difficult to wear, but I'm so tempted to try a pastel yellow shade! Thank you, hun :) xxx

  6. I have been picking this one up and putting it back for months, however last week I took the plunge and bought it! I am yet to wear it however! It is very bright but pretty and looks lovely on your nails xx
