Barry M nails limited edition collaboration with Ray Blk
The music artist's collection with the high street beauty brand is inspired by music video glamour - and it's available right now.
Instant nails are a speedy way to level up your outfit for an event - and have we spotted the perfect ones for your next outing! R&B singer Ray Blk has collaborated with much-loved beauty brand Barry M to produce a collection of nails inspired by the glamour associated with today's R&B music videos.
The limited collection - named BLKlisted - is vegan and cruelty-free, and includes six bold, empowering designs to be worn by everyone.
Blk said of her designs, 'I created the BLKlisted instant nail collection during lockdown when trying to find a solution to manicures, as at the time I couldn't safely do my nails outside of home. I then also realised that there was a huge need for the stylised nail art that I love and that really isn't available to 'real people', just celebrities with stylists and big budgets. Often, high street nail technicians are able to create these intricate styles, they may not have the time, and the styles can be very costly.'
The singer's standout style is evident in her music videos and on her Instagram page, where she flits between statement on-stage looks and off duty streetwear. It's no wonder why her designs for Barry M feature a range of nail art looks that would suit any aesthetic.
She continues, 'My biggest inspirations for the BLKlisted collection are 'music video glamour' and Gen-Z fashion. The style and lengths of the nails are deliberately extravagant to make a statement. Nothing about celebrity glamour is subtle! It's all about the sparkle and grabbing attention. Gen-Z is all about being comfortable in who your are and celebrating you and your personality, embracing your quirkiness! I want everyone who wears BLKlisted to feel empowered and confident. So, instead of plain block colours, I created intricate designs and elaborate patterns, along with fierce lengths.'
Each BLKlisted nail kit is priced at £19.99 and includes 30 multi-sized nails, nail glue, nail file and cuticle stick. Browse the range at barrym.com
