Barry M Under The Sea Nail Paints: 2019 swatches & review

This post contains affiliate links.

Barry M released 4 new nail paints in the Under the Sea collection back in February. I’m so late to the swatch game here but I really wanted to share them with you. You can find the original 4 here, and the last 4 here. Let’s have a look at the new ones! I’ve used 3 coats alone for all of these, and then 1 coat over the black and white.

Sea Turtle

I absolutely love this light turquoise with a pink-purple shift! It’s super pretty over a white base.

Coral Reef

Wow, this one is such vibrant coral pink! It has a very subtle shimmer to it, which you can see over the black.

Oyster Beach

At first glance, I thought this pale, peachy-pink was the same as Angelfish. However it is much lighter in colour and more pink, even if it does also have a similar blue shift.


This is such a stunning pink-based purple! I’m a big fan of the blue shimmer too.

These are available from the Barry M website, Boots, Superdrug for £3.99 each.

I do love this range but I’m starting to see some very similar colours looking back through the collection…

  1. I love that you show these over white and over black, it’s so cool to see all the different elements of these polishes! I have a couple from the previous releases – might need to dig those out now that the weather is getting warmer!
