Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine & Textured Nail Paint

Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint - £3.99 each

These two particular shades really appealed to me out of the entire Gelly Hi-Shine range, I just love my nudes and sky blues! 'Lychee' is a light neutral beige/nude colour wearable for both day or night, it gives a chic appearance and has a super sleek shine to it. 'Blueberry' is a beautiful powder blue perfect to wear for Summer, I think it may be a little too bold for the Spring so I will be saving it for when the sun decides to come out more regularly. Both polishes apply really well onto the nails and dry much quicker than the original Barry M nail paints. They're much more durable and I found that 2 coats with a base worked best.

Barry M Textured Nail Paint - £3.99 each

I have been eager to try the Texture range for some time now and it was really hard to choose which shades to try first as they're all so tempting. I settled with 'Ridley Road' a delightful mint green colour and 'Kingsland Road' which is a strawberry milkshake pink. Both shades are well suited for this season and bring a subtle pop of colour to my nails. I've taken to the texture of the polish itself and I love that it has a matte finish, however I did need to apply around 3 coats which resulted in a thick layer of product which was prone to chipping. I always wear pastel shades this time of year so I will be making great use of these two and soon I may possibly try more from the range.
