I was finally able to decide on what polish to try out first from the swap. Inspired by the gorgeous weather we've been having, I chose Mint Green by Barry M - a nice Spring-y green.
The application wasn't the best, but it wasn't terrible either. It was runny and streaky, but not too difficult to work with, and it evened itself out nicely. That's not too bad for a pastel! I needed three coats to fully cover some bald spots. For a top coat, I used Seche Vite, and got a little bit of shrinkage, but nothing too noticeable.
Barry M is a brand I've been dying to try, and I must say I'm quite pleased. I can't wait to try out the others!
