Barry M - Mini Haul & Free Retro Nail Paint


Hey! 

Another freebie post for you today! :)

As I mentioned in my post yesterday, Boot's have tonnes of great freebies on at the moment. You can see the Fest Of All Kit I got free with some 17 cosmetics here.

While I was in Boots I also grabbed hold of the new Barry M Chameleon Nail Paints.

I noticed Barry M also had an offer on, which was if you spent £6 you got a FREE Retro Nail Paint!
So here's what I bought...



Barry M Chameleon Nail Paints - £3.99 each.
(Chameleon Pink 330, Chameleon Blue 331, Chameleon Lilac 332)

I absolutely love all 3 shades. They have a metallic look to them. The bottle shows the colour inside, and the lid represents the colour which it will turn using the Chameleon effect. I couldn't wait to try these out, I will do a separate post with some designs and let you know how I get on with them.



Barry M Lipliner - Shade Dark Pink 112 - £2.99. 
I don't normally use a lip liner, but in all honesty this was the cheapest product I could find to make up the other £6 needed to get 2 free paints! However, I will definitely use this, as I love the colour, and it matches a Barry M lipstick I already have quite well. Application is very smooth and it doesn't tug on your lips like some pencils.


Barry M Retro Nail Paints - £2.99
Retro 5, Purple, Tainted Love. & Retro 4, Coral, Club Tropicana.

These nail paints have been brought out to celebrate 30 years of Barry M, with packaging inspired by the originals back in the 80's!
For some reason I like the bottle of these nail varnishes, and the colours are lovely and bright! 
I don't think I would have bought them if I'd just seen them not on offer. But they were well worth being a freebie! I'll eventually do some swatches of these colours.



So overall this little lot cost me just under £15! But I was planning on spending £12 on the Chameleon polishes anyway, and I got a few extra's for just £3 more.


These polishes can be purchased at Boots stores and online, here.
I think Superdrug do have a similar offer on but not on their website.


Have you tried the Chameleon or Retro paints? What do you think?
