NOTD Barry M Block Orange

Hi lovelies. It's been a wee while since I did a NOTD so thought I'd give one a go today. Today I am wearing Barry M "Block Orange" NP 301.

Now I like a nice coral and a nice red but I fancied doing something more orange today and here we have it! It does what it says on the tin (ok bottle). It is "block orange". It is a good solid orange shade. The quality and drying time is good though as I've found on some similar paints/polishes it takes a good few coats to get a true "block" colour. The photos show 3 coats (plus one clear basecoat) and to be honest I can still see a little white showing through on the tips. I'll be changing the colour again in a day or two so didn't bother with a fourth coat but being honest I'd probably prefer a heavier coverage.

It IS Barry M though so at £2.99 I'm not too concerned about using four coats worth of polish though waiting for each to dry isn't always ideal.

Orerall a nice fun, summer colour and one I'll be getting a bit more use of before the summer is out. What do you think of it? I know it isn't for everyone but as a statement kind of colour I'm quite taken with it.
