Nailing Spring Pastels with Barry M Candy Culture Nail Polish Collection

Spring has definitely sprung and one set of colours I associate spring with is definitely pastel shades. From your pinks to your blues, pastels are a huge hit in this season for me. So when I was out and about shopping (nothing new there!), I spotted the Barry M Candy Culture Collection in my local Superdrug and knew I had to give them a try. The whole collection just screams spring to me and given they are scented as well how can anyone walk past them and not wonder if they do really work?!

The Collection

So there’s 4 shades in the Candy Culture collection:

Blueberry Bonbon – a vibrant baby blue shade. This particular shade was recently featured in my April Favourites as it’s absolutely gorgeous. I could of got away with only 1 coat of this on my nails due to how opaque this is however I used 2 on my nails, just to give them more vibrancy.

Raspberry Sorbet – a pink/lilac shade. A shade where you’ll need 2 coats for a completely opaque finish. It has a lovely soft matte finish but to give it a shine you can always apply a top coat. Another firm favourite of mine due to the colour.

Coconut Cream – a grey/lilac shade. One of my favourite scents in the world is coconut. I thought I wouldn’t like this shade but weirdly I do. It would make a lovely base colour as well to make a nail design with the other colours, maybe flowers (I’m not skilled in that department!). You only need 2 coats of this one, you could also get away with only 1 coat as well due to how opaque it is.

Strawberry Laces – a baby pink shade. This scent brings me right back to my childhood days, stealing strawberry laces from the treats cupboard. It’s kinda nostalgic in a way. With this particular shade you definitely need a couple of coats as it’s not as opaque as the others. On the thumb especially I had to apply 3 coats.

Dry & Wear Time

Each shade does take a while to dry down, around about the hour mark. However they last a fair amount of time before I noticed any chipping, about 4/5 days in wear time. Each of the scents aren’t overpowering but it doesn’t hang around forever. It seems to fade away after the second day which is a shame. This could be my personal opinion but I would of preferred it to last throughout the whole wear time, but it’s no biggie.

The Verdict

This collection has really won me over though, I hope they do introduce more shades to the collection as scented nail polish is definitely a new concept to me. Maybe a yellow shade with a banana scent? That would instantly fly into my nail polish collection! Each shade is absolutely beautiful and I know these will be a huge hit throughout Spring for me and even Summer when it finally arrives.

These are £3.99 each from Boots and Superdrug.

Whats your favourite shade from the Candy Culture collection?

Until next time,
