Colour Name: Black
OPI are about to release a 'shatter coat' [for about £10] alongside their Katy Perry colour collection, so so-called 'Crackle Polishes' are set to be big beauty news this year. Luckily for us Barry M already have a 'Crackle Polish' of their own on the market and it is cheaper, easier to find and is the same product as it's double-the-price contender.

Barry M INSTANT NAIL EFFECTS is a black polish* that is applied over another colour: As it dries it cracks into a unique pattern, that is similar to a leopard print.

Not only does it give an easy, professional pattern every time, but it is also hard wearing and helps my polish last longer without using another top coat over it**. I think this is due to the formula being slightly thicker then most nail polishes [but non-gloopy], so it forms a thick protective layer over your base colour.

* It is labelled as a Nail Paint - the same as Barry M's other polishes - so I wasn't sure what to call it, but the formula was created to separate as it dries so it won't work as a regular polish.

** This product is not billed as a topcoat, so it's just my personal experience. Without using a regular topcoat my polish will last for at least four days with only minimal wear. But [as previously mentioned] I'm tough on my nails (self powered wheelchair user), so this product will give longer lasting results on other people.

How to apply
- - - - - - - - - - -

1) Simply apply one or two coats of your chosen polish shade [don't go for dark colours as the finished results won't show up very well].

2) When the base colour is dry apply one coat of INSTANT NAIL EFFECTS over it*.

This nail varnish is brilliant. Firstly you put on a layer of normal nail varnish, wait for it to dry and then paint one single coat of instant effects over the top. The nail varnish then cracks and creates an effect similar to that on the lid.
Between the cracks you will see the original colour you put on.
It is easy to use and it doesn't matter if you don't put it on perfectly. It looks like something you would get done at a salon, its brilliant.

Colour Name: Black
I bought this nail varnish on offer from a well-known high street store. I mostly got it because it was cheap, and I wanted to know if I would like the effect before I shelled out the money on a more expensive "salon" brand.

I have to say I am utterly blown away by this. I took into account some of the tips I had read about application but honestly, in my opinion it was very easy to apply (especially considering the brush, which is a traditional thinner type rather than the more modern wide brushes you see nowadays). I paired it with a Rimmel coral-coloured base colour and the Barry M 3-in-1 clear as a top coat and it is showing absolutely no signs of budging off my nails after three days. I have long natural nails and type a lot for a living so my nails are getting a very realistic amount of wear. Also it is so much fun to apply, it dries so quickly and you can see the cracks appearing before your eyes - especially if you blow on it. :D

So some tips for the effect:

1) The thinner you apply, the thinner the cracks will be. Thicker application leads to bigger chunks and bigger cracks.
2) Paint quickly - this dries extremely fast so you have to be confident and quick with your application. On the plus side, due to the very nature of the effect you don't have to be particularly neat. :) Some people have said it's important not to overlap - this may be the case but I found it impossible NOT to overlap and as long as you are quick, in my experience it doesn't matter too much.
3) Allow your base colour to dry completely before applying the effect.
4) This is a thin matte polish so a good quality top coat is a must. As mentioned though, I have used the Barry M top coat and found it very good.

This is a brilliant product and works really well. I've used it several times now and have been really pleased with the results; I've even had compliments from complete strangers!

OPI have just brought out their own version, but it's much more expensive, and owning both OPI and Barry M nail varnish, I would say that the Barry M nail varnishes actually last longer, and therefore much better value for money!

One tip I would say is, put a clear top coat on, it makes the effect fit in with the base colour much better and looks nicer! (The effect nail varnish has a matt look.)

I hope Barry M will bring out more colours soon!

Colour Name: Black
It took me quite a while to get hold of Barry M's nail effects polish, because for a long time after its release it seemed to be sold out everywhere I went on the high street.

The idea behind this product is that you can create nail art using minimal effort and very little skill. To use, simply paint your nails with any standard coloured nail polish and paint a layer of nail effects over the top. The black nail effects polish will shrink and crack to reveal the coloured polish underneath, giving an unusual and unique effect, which looks like it could have been done in a salon.

I found this very easy to use. I would recommend putting quite a bright colour underneath, as paler shades don't really stand out very well. The nail effects seems slightly thicker than regular polish, but is easy to paint on. The good thing about it is that anyone can do it whether they have experience at nail art or not, as if you miss a bit you can just pass it off as part of the design!

The finished effect is impressive, although I was surprised how matte the black is, so I apply a clear top coat over it to add shine. This is a bargain product, OPI have the Katy Perry shatter coat which does the same thing but is nearly three times the price! I really hope other colours of this are released in the future.
