Barry M Sunset S/S 16 Polishes

Another swatch day and more Barry M yippee! Today I've got the four new polishes in their Sunset Daylight Curing range and as I loved the polishes from this collection last year, I had some high hopes. Let me just say, they definitely did not disappoint! 

The first thing I love about these is how bright and summery they are compared to the new polishes in the Gelly and Speedy collections. Not denying that we all love a pastel polish but these just get me so excited for Summer! 

First we'll take a look at Bug A Blue, a gorgeous sky blue. Of course the formula was great and it was super easy to apply, especially with the flat brush! Can't tell you how much I love those brushes. It was totally opaque in two coats and I also added a topcoat (although not the Sunset topcoat as they recommend because y'know, just swatching).

Next polish is All The Things She Red a very bright polish but despite the name I'm almost tempted to say it's leaning towards orange/coral. Again a dream to apply and also two coats plus topcoat. Can definitely see myself wearing this a lot!

Empire State of Mint is unsurprisingly, a beautiful mint polish. This was two coats plus topcoat. Yet again, pretty sure this is going to be another popular one in the Summer.

Last of the new polishes is Pinking Out Loud, a bright Barbie pink. The biggest surprise about this was that I liked it just as much as the others! I mean me, really liking a pink polish?! Unlike the others I had to use three coats for this one as it was still a little streaky in places after two however this wasn't a massive deal because I didn't feel like I was waiting ages for each coat to dry.

So what do I think about the new additions to the Sunset range? I LOVE THEM! I really cannot fault these polishes at all so if you like the look of them, I would definitely recommend picking them up asap. Now I just have to decide which I take with me when I go on holiday next month...probably all of them haha! 

If I had to pick, I'd say either All The Things She Red and Empire State of Mint was my favourite. Which one is yours?
