So this is a weird one, I got sent new nail polish from Kiko and Barry M and they looked identical, so thought I would try them together and see how close they are. These rose gold shimmery, metallics are Kiko Sun Shower Nail Laquer in shade 44 and Barry M Cosmetics Nail Paint in Mediterranean from their Aquarium collection. Kiko retails at £5.90 and Barry M at £2.99.
I tried the Kiko on all nails and the Barry M on the accent nail, as you can see the colours are in fact identical. The main differences here come in the packaging and application brush. The Kiko brush is slightly broader, which makes application smoother and quicker and the narrower lid makes for a more agile application. However, if you’re used to Barry M, they you can get the exact same colour for lots less money.
Weird when these dupes turn up by accident right? Anyway, I love them both, it’s a beautiful colour which I think would be even more beautiful on a warmer skin tone or someone with a tan.
What dupes do you like?
Do you prefer Barry M or Kiko nail polish?
