Not great and definitely not matt finish!
on 20 July 2017
Barry M never normally let me down so I was really excited when I ordered this. But in all honesty it doesn't seem matt finish at all (more satin at best?) and was a real pain to apply. It was really thin and runny and some coats dried really quick and others stayed sticky for ages. I got so frustrated on the third try I just took it all of and have resigned to maybe just using it for french manicures or under coat if I have a lot of time on my hands.
It may be tempting to assume that I just 'did it wrong' but though I have been painting my nails for years and do my own gel nails and stuff, I can honestly say I doubted myself too when it turned out so poorly compared to my expectation! So to I tried some different methods just to make sure! Sorry but this is the only Barry M I would not buy again. Perhaps I had a dodgy one?.
