Gabrini 398 Nail Varnish Review

Gabrini 398 Nail Varnish Review

Cabrini 398 is a lovely grey polish that I didn’t even realise was matte until I got home, apparently when I really like the look of a polish I don’t even bother to read the packaging! I love matte finishes on manicures, but prefer to paint a matte top coat over a regular polish so that I can do a layer of Seche Vite between. I have found the matte polishes tend to drag and leave a bumpy finish.

But this one was different. This is two easy to apply coats and as you can see the finish is perfect. I also like that it’s not as flat or dull as most matte polishes – it’s softer looking and almost rubbery. It would be perfect for a first timer in the matte polish area.

Anyone else tried any Gabrini polishes? Every one that I try makes me sure that I’m robbing them somehow by getting them for 99p!

Barry M Textured Effects Kingsland Road

Textured nails are huge at the moment and you can always rely on Barry M to bring out an affordable, high quality version of the top trends.

This is no exception. Barry M has released matte finish polishes with a grainy finish. It looks so unique and feels oddly nice – I couldn’t stop touching it when I had it on. It is less rough than it looks and doesn’t catch on things like I thought it would.

The polishes in this range all have names of places in London where Barry himself used to hang out. This one is called Kingsland Road which was the road I lived on when I first moved to London – I knew I had to get it from the moment I saw it.

As a huge fan of the textured nail trend, I have to say bravo, Barry M!

You can find my review of another of the Barry M Textured Effects polishes HERE.
