Barry M – Dragster swatch and review

*I bought this* 

Hi everyone

This post has taken longer to get up than I wanted. I’ve had a busy few days with work and home improvements.

I’m looking forward to next week when things will have calmed down and I can relax a bit more.

Anyway onto the polish! Today I have one of the new Barry M speedy quick dry polishes to show you. They have recently released 4 new lovely autumnal colours. I’m really excited to see that Barry M have extended this range to include some lovely rich, deep shades.

I picked up 2 of them (taking advantage of the buy 1, get 1 half price offer in Superdrug!), Dragster and Sprint Finish.

In this post I wanted to show you Dragster. On the bottle it is described as Dark Grey. In the bottle it does look almost black, but on the nail it is indeed a lovely dark grey shade.

As you can see it is quite an interesting shade that is very wearable despite its dark colour. I don’t have anything like it in my stash and I really like it. I think it will look lovely with glitter for the festive season.

I used 2 coats here with Glisten and Glow HK Girl topcoat. Application was smooth and I was pleased to see the new wide, flat Barry M brush. This polish is very opaque and I think you could get away with one thick coat – if you’re careful.

I was in a bit of a rush and applied topcoat straight away so I can’t comment on the drying time. I never wear polish without a quick dry topcoat anyway so I don’t tend to think about drying time.

If you’re looking for a vampy shade that’s not as dark as black then I would definitely recommend this. I’m really in the mood to see autumn and winter collections now. How about you – are you excited for more wintry shades or are you keen to carry on wearing your summer brights?
