The Barry M Jewel Glitter collection was released late September-ish last Autumn. I'm actually not one to have my head turned by glitters - they're lovely and all, and I'm always "ooh" when they're on other people, but for myself I'd rather sport a red or nude creme.
For whatever reason, this one did catch my eye. I think I thought the base was a black jelly, and I was quite excited by the thought of it - completely forgetting that the polish I was imagining does exist, and is Revlon Facets of Fuschia. Ah well. As you can see, this one ain't a black jelly, and at first I was a little disappointed by how sparse it is.
Ruby (why is is called that? Is that glitter not closer to burgundy or, hell, even pink than it is red?) is obviously intended to be a top coat. What you see on these pictures is one coat over W7 white - I shudder to think how many it would take to become opaque in it's own right, and no way on great earth I'm trying to remove it.
The burgundy glitter is the largest, the black a little smaller, and the tiny black glitter is really weird - kind of like mini bar glitter. Almost creepy if you stare at it enough. Certainly weird enough to make this a very interesting and unique polish.
The black glitter is matte. I'm not sure if I'd have preferred sparkly or not. In a sense that would have made it more conventional and killed some of its kook.
Verdict: odd. But good.
Removal's a bugger. But you knew that.
