Good evening loves!
My blog schedule has been all out of whack this past week thanks to a busy work/decorating timetable and having had only eight hours sleep in the last seventy-two! I have kindly reminded my body that we're getting old now and I could do without any of these insomnia-like shenanigans! On a better note though I did pick up the new Autumn shades in Barry M's 'Speedy Quick Dry' range on Friday. There's a bright candy apple red, a bright purple, a rich pomegranate and a deep, dark grey. I'm not usually a fan of the earthy autumnal shades but I loved each one of these...
Mmmmmmmm.... Now let's take a closer look!
This is Dragster, a gorgeous gun-metal grey which will totally rock your world if you're a grey-phile like me, it's such an unusual and beautiful shade! I used two coats plus topcoat.
Next up is Slipstream which is a very blackcurrant-y purple indeed, lush. As with the grey it was two coats plus a topcoat for this one.
This is Sprint Finish which is descibed as a pomegranate colour and may well be, but for me? Most definitely red wine haha, either way I like it! It too needed two coats plus topcoat.
Last but by no means least is Dead Heat, an eye-poppingly bright red which looks good enough to eat! This one needed three coats to eliminate the white free edge showing through before topcoating.
I just love, love, love these colours - even the red which is usually one of my loathed shades. Both the red and the grey had nice fluid consistencies which applied like a dream. The purple and pomegranate were a little thicker and stickier to work with - less strokes the better. Thankfully that isn't made to difficult with the wide flat brushes provided in this range, some folks hate them but I can't fault them. You can pick these up in Superdrug now for £3.99 each and are currently part of a Buy 1 Get 1 Half Price offer.
Now I must get myself into bed and try to catch some MUCH needed zzzzzz's... Goodnight!
