This is definitely a split story.

On the one hand, Barry M Textured Nail Polish.

Textured polish – or you might have seen it from other brands called concrete – is not for me – I just hate the finish, although love the colours here.

Although you can’t really see the grittiness of the dried texture here, I’ve painted one of my nails with it and can’t wait to take it off. Horrible. Shades shown are Station Road (yellow) and Kingsland Road.

On the other hand, I couldn’t love these polishes more.. it’s just about my dream colour combination on nails and the finish, while not maybe as outrageously high shine as you might expect from the name is gorgeously glossy.
