I went for Ice cream and left with raspberry (NOTD)

I am seriously lacking with the blog again! I love doing it as well but I just don't seem to have the time. Anyway I went to superdrug last week to buy Berry Ice cream and Mushroom from the new Barry M nail paint collection but the were sold out, so this polish caught my eye, I don't know how long it's been out but I haven't seen this in stock before. I really like the colour and it seems to apply better than any other Barry M nail paint i've bought before. I was surprised though when I saw the colour, to me this isn't what I would describe as a raspberry I think this looks like a classic red which is what I thought it would be. I thought raspberry was more a pink-y colour?

This is what the colour looks like on the Barry M website:

I definitely don't think this looks the same at all, obviously seeing a colour online is not going to be 100% accurate but personally I don't think this is close. I'm glad I bought it in person because I liked the colour and not online where it does look more raspberry like!

Has anyone else bought something which doesn't look anything like it's supposed to?

I love that colour, I have a simillar shade by L'oreal Resist and Shine collection which although I love, stains even if I use a base coat :( Did this stain your nails after removal?

Just come across your blog btw (and it's fab!). Now following :)

Hi Laura,

It is a great colour! Wasn't what I expected but it's really nice anyway.

It didn't stain my nails (I don't tent to use a base coat on my nails), there's not many polishes that have stained my nails. There only one's I remember were a red nails inc one and a black collection 2000 one (I should have knew better with black!).

Now following yours too :)

This has happened a lot haha, you would think brands would make their online swatches more accurate!
It would be great if you could check out my blog sometime,

Yeah, I agree Beth, the swatches online aren't great. I bought loads of foundation online which I haven't been able to use! But I have learned now. I really want to try illamasqua rich liquid foundation and nars sheer glow but I don't have counters near me that sell these and I'm too scared to buy them online x
