I have been collecting Barry M nail paints for the longest time. They were one of the very first brands I ever got hooked on. I remember as a teenager popping into superdrug and checking to see what new shades they had released and it was guaranteed I would leave with one. My Barry M collection is a little OTT and that's an understatement. So I thought I would do a best of post to show you guys which ones I like the best and if you are new to the brand you can get some inspiration for your next purchase. 

Shade Recommendations

Coral- a bright coral shade more on the red side than orange, but very summery. 
Peach Melba- a pretty pastel peach.
Flamingo Pink- almost neon pink shade. 
Bright Pink- Barbie's perfect pink shade.
Berry Ice Cream- a sweet pastel lilac.
Blueberry- a baby blue, very creamy looking.
Limited Edition 2013( not available anymore) but a very neon pink looks great over white.
Mushroom- a brown mauve, very classic looking.
Dragon Fruit- part of gelly shine range, pink with lilac undertone. 
Green Berry- part of gelly shine range, bright mint green.
Turquoise- a blue/green shade, very bright and refreshing. 
Lady- part of royal textured glitter range, a snow white glitter.
Sugar Apple- part of gelly shine range, a pastel soft mint green.
Dutchess- part of royal textured glitter range, a rose gold glitter.
Majesty- part of royal textured glitter range, a golden bronze glitter. 
Raspberry- a gorgeous raspberry, slightly lighter than picture. 
Indigo- a rich blue/purple shade
Passion Fruit- part of gelly shine range, a bright coral red. 

So there are my top shades, I should mention the shade 'Bright Red' I used to own it but haven't replaced it, but its a gorgeous bright, shiny red, very pretty.
