SS17 Barry M Coconut Infusion – swatches & review

To quote my original post (here): The Coconut Infusion polishes have a blend of coconut oil and coconut water in to gently hydrate and nourishes the nails whilst having a smooth, shiny gel-like finish. The science: “Enriched with anti-oxidizing properties, the strengthening benefits of patented Hexanal and Vitamins B & C, nails will be repaired and replenished, resulting in a brighter, healthier looking, long lasting finish. Its exclusive High Reflective Resin System offers lustrous shine, fluid coverage and amazing depth of colour.” 

This release actually has gel nail paint on the front whereas the previous polishes from the collection just said nail paint. I’m not sure if this means the formula has changed though…? Anyway, this time we got 4 bright popping colours that are absolutely stunning and perfect for summer!

ScubaThis is a gorgeous blue/teal colour. The formula is perfect and just needs 2 coats (shown without topcoat).

PopsicleAlthough I’m not a huge pink fan, I’m loving this addition to the collection. It really pops! Added bonus – this is a one coater. I’ve shown it here with 2 (no topcoat) as it just makes it look a bit more plump but you really don’t need the second coat coverage-wise.

Flip FlopAnother bright colour I’m really loving! This a gorgeous orange that I definitely needed in my polish collection. This is 2 coats, no topcoat.

LemonadeLast but not least is this beautiful yellow with a hint of lime! I don’t know what’s come over me but I’m really loving these bright shades – I think this one might even be my favourite. I didn’t think yellow suited me but I’m definitely going to be wearing this over the summer. I even did some nail art using this as a base with Scuba and Laguna, also from the coconut infusion range  (inspired by my phone case!).

When I was swatching these I realised I never shared the 6 AW16 coconut infusion polishes with you, so I thought I’d add them to this post seeing as it’s been feeling very autumnal recently. They’re all cool toned shades, which makes a change. 

Island Fever A lovely deep respect and another one coater. Do you see what I mean about plumpness? This swatch is one coat without topcoat and it looks a bit meh.

OasisI love this cool toned purple and is a colour I didn’t even know I needed. This is 2 coats, no topcoat.

Boardwalk  I actually really like this brown. It’s not for everybody but I really like it. I’ve shown it here with 2 coats but I feel like it either needs a third of more careful application as it’s still a little streaky in places.

StormI love grey polishes and this darker shade is no exception. At first I thought it was the same shade as Chai from the Gelly range but it is a slightly different colour. Perfect in 2 coats.

ParadiseWould you describe this as a mauvey-nude? Or mushroom? I’m not sure how to describe this colour but it’s lovely regardless. Again, this takes 2 coats.

OysterI wasn’t sure about this in the bottle but I actually love this greige colour. This is 2 coats but might be better with 3.

Phew! That’s a lot of polishes – there’s a total of 19 polishes in this range now (see below) and there’s a good mix of neautrals and brights. The 4 new ones are available now at Superdrug, Boots and Barry M and I’m pretty sure you can still pick up all the older shades. 

Thanks for reading!

  1. I haven’t tried my bottle of Coconut Infusion polish yet (I got Bikini) but the fact that they have been expanding the line makes me really excited! They all look so incredibly smooth on their own, your application is perfection. Flip Flop is especially cute, love the color and the name.

  2. Gorgeous swatches and I love your collage of the collection! I always love making them too, not sure why but it makes me happy to see them all together.
    Lemonade is a stunner and your nail art is gorgeous.
    Happy 3 year bday too! Many more fab years to come.

  3. Loving Scuba and Popsicle – even Island Fever – but I can imagine pairing together a few of these colours at the same time (something I rarely do!)
