I’m a fan of Barry M Nail Polishes and am getting quite the collection. So when I saw a few reviews of their new Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paints I knew I had to pick up a couple of colours. My local Boots didn’t have great stock but I eventually decided on these two colours. I really wanted the lilac colour in Prickly Pear but it was sold out. Just my luck
Barry M have released 9 colours in these Gelly Nail Paints and they all look fab. I am sure I will be popping back in to pick up a few more colours.
I picked up Watermelon a deep emerald-green colour and Pomegranate a red toned pink. They say to use a base coat with these. I’m guessing because they may stain your nails but I’m not 100% sure. Either way I used a base coat and the polish applies quite thickly on your nails I used one coat and that was perfect for both colours. The drying time was about 10 mins for fully dry as it is a think consistency.
The brush is quite thin and I found it easy to use and the polish goes on well. The finish is really shiny and with a top coat on looks even better. I have been impressed with them and the colour range available. I’m hoping my Boots gets more stock in soon so I can grab a few more colours. Like I need anymore nail polish!!
Out of the two I picked up I think the Pomegranate is my favourite. Only because I’m a sucker for a pink polish. Have you picked any of these Barry M Gelly Nail Paints yet? Are you impressed with them? You can pick them up from Superdrug, Boots or direct from BarryM Website they are £3.99 for
