I’ve had this nail polish for a few years, I’m not even sure it’s still available but it might be knocking round in the back of someones cupboard, or on eBay. It still goes on perfectly, as if it were brand new, which goes to show what great formulation Barry M polish is.
When Essie’s Van D’Go came onto the scene earlier this year it was like nothing I’d ever seen before, I thought. I had to have it. I got it, and wasn’t that impressed. Gorgeous colour but the formulation wasn’t to my liking – it had far too much white in it, chipped easily, and the Essie brush is annoying. The other day, I was looking through my polish collection and rediscovered Marshmallow Pink. The colour is identical, it’s like everything the Essie should be. I will do a dupe pic soon, I’m sure I’m right, if not I apologise, but shade-wise I think they’re extremely similar.
The bottle doesn’t actually say the name of the polish on the bottom, as they usually do these days, just the number 278, which after a bit of Google investigation, I discovered was named Marshmallow Pink. I’m not sure I’d have named it that myself – it’s more peach than pink, a really pale pastel apricot shade.
