Barry M Aquarium Collection | Pacific (The Mermaid Shade)

As soon as I had heard that Barry M was releasing an aquarium collection I was desperate to find out if they had what I call The Mermaid Shade (Barry M call it Pacific, but I like my name better!). Something about this colour reminds me of Ariel from The Little Mermaid and I knew I had to have it. 

On release day (which was a few weeks ago now) I was on a late at work so I dragged my Mum out for a little shopping trip. The collection was released in Superdrug before Boots and we haven't got one in our local shopping centre so I specifically said that I wanted to go to another nearby town so I could get this. Usually this branch of Superdrug has everything I need as the town is mostly populated by older people! Obviously they had it and it now part of my ever growing collection!

Originally I had my eye on Topshop's Eclipse nail polish, which is pretty similar but is £6 instead of Barry M's offering at £3.99 and personally I prefer Barry M's colour more (plus I now have another £2.01 to put towards my next one!).

The colour is beautiful, but you have to build it up, the above photo was taken with three (yes, three!) coats. It's so pretty though! As with all Barry M's polishes, they last a few days before they start to chip. I usually paint my nails on a Friday after work and they're still looking lovely before I have to remove it before work Monday morning.

Have you bought any of the Barry M Aquarium Collection? What do you think to this colour?
