I actually wanted to get this post up a lot sooner but I needed to do a little investigating first. If you saw my "Gifts from the UK" video you'll know that the wonderful Shuting had sent over a bevy of goodies including 4 Barry M nail polishes. Navy is said to be a dupe for the much acclaimed Chanel Satin Blue. Now when I googled it, it did indeed look very similar but after seeing it in person they are quite different. Satin Blue is really a black with a hint of blue whereas Navy is most certainly a much more vibrant blue. The good thing is that if you wanted to mimic Chanel all you would have to do is put a layer of black under the Navy or just add a few drops to the bottle. Quite frankly I prefer the Barry M. Just another example of how the cost sometimes has very little to do with a product's fabulousness!
Obviously this is the Chanel. In person it looks like any other black polish. It's very difficult to see any blue. You really have to turn the bottle to catch just the right light.
Wow when you see the 2 pictures they looks so close but don't be fooled.
For those of you lucky enough to have access to Barry M I think this is a must have! What do you think?
