Angelfish is one of the four new polishes in Barry M’s Under the Sea collection. The collection is available from Superdrug which is where I picked this one up for £3.99 having seen them advertised on Instagram.
In the bottle it looks a kinda pale salmony/peachy/pink colour which is why I chose this one. However, on application the colour is completely different; it applies as a pearlescent purple/white without any hint of the peach colour in the bottle. It’s inoffensive & a little bit retro chic but it’s just not what I was expecting.
It’s quite pretty as it shifts in the light, and not entirely dissimilar to the iridescence of Essence Out of Space is the Place which I reviewed last year. The formula is smooth & the brush is easy to use making the first coat of colour opaque.
I don’t dislike this but it’s not what I was expecting from the packaging, we will see if it grows on me! It is, however, really good value for money, especially in comparison to the new Nails Inc mermaid nail polishes.
