Pick A Polish: Barry M - Rhossili

Hi dolls. How are you today? I am feeling extra tired for some reason.

I have this week's Pick A Polish post to show you today. This week it was Barry M - Rhossili which was chosen. This is one of Barry M's newer releases from their Summer Mattes collection. I swatched the whole collection here not too long ago, so sorry if you saw the swatches before. But I do have some nail art to go along with it today :).

My lid has a crack in it thanks to Boots online's rubbishy packaging :(.

Read on after the jump for more.

Rhossili is a red toned purple, creamy matte finish polish. This photo shows two coats without topcoat. The formula was pretty good, it was very pigmented and opaque; not far off a one coater. It was also very smooth in application, I found it very easy to apply and it doesn't drag like some matte polishes do. Oh and it's a cute colour too ;).

I felt like trying a new technique and eventually settled on this 'cloud' technique by Nailside. It's such a shame she isn't posting anymore, I loved her blog!

Over Rhossili I used OPI - Love.Angel.Music.Baby and the side of the polish brush to create my 'cloud' shape.

I repeated the process again using W7 - Black and then another layer of Rhossili on the top.

This was actually pretty easy and I didn't need any tools other than the brush from the bottle. The lazy side of me loves nail art like this ;). I like how the black and gold look like stripes in the middle of my nails as I used Rhossili on the top again. Rhossili definitely gets a thumbs up from me!

Let me know your thoughts below.

Thanks for looking.


  1. This is really pretty, and the other colors you've used goes with it well. :)
