China Glaze Merry Berry Nail Lacquer
China Glaze Merry Berry Nail Lacquer

Let’s Get Merry with Berry!

China Glaze Merry Berry Nail Lacquer ($7.50 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “rich berry red creme.” It’s a deep red–perhaps with a hint of berry–that for all its darkness, remains dark and almost muted, which is interesting to see in a shade so clearly red. Essie Size Matters is similar. Dior Graphic Berry is more berry-colored. China Glaze City Siren is a touch darker.

It’s opaque in two coats, and it has a beautiful flow and consistency that’s not too thick or too thin, so it applied evenly across the nail without streaking or pooling along the edges of the nail.  Merry Berry is a very classic, deep red cream–you may have something like it in your stash, and if not, a worthwhile version to own.  I typically get a week of wear out of China Glaze’s formula with minor tip wear but no chipping.

    Like this shade

  2. It’s been a while since I’ve seen a red like this, with more brownish tones, it reminds me of Snow White and Old Hollywood, even before Marilyn Monroe.

    Gorgeous Shade! I am in love with it. Merry Christmas!

  4. This color is basically the uniform that my mother’s nails wear all the time. Perhaps that’s why I find it soooo boring!

    Add some gold or pink fine shimmer and I might like it. A bit too boring and dupeable as a cream. Classy shade, though.

    i’m so in love with this color. I went all over creation to find this polish and no luck, i even called around to other neighborhoods and no one sells it near me. do you think, feel free to say no, i could possibly buy it from you?
    happy holidays.

  7. Huh…I surprisingly don’t have a deeper red shade like this in my collection. This one is gorgeous so maybe I’ll end up picking it up! :)

  8. Gorgeous color! These pictures definitely make me want to try it, I loooovveeee dark reds.
