Barry M Gelly Nail Paint | Review




Today I'm going to be reviewing 2 of Barry M's Gelly Nail Paints. These being, Prickly Pear and Blueberry.
 
I absolutely adore Barry M nail varnish, what do you guys call nailvarnish? I feel I'm the only one who calls them that, I see lots of people calling them nail polish, nail paints.. I dunno!
 Anyway, before the Gelly collection came out I would buy so many of the original collection, however now I only seem to really buy the Gelly nail varnishes, unless I see a colour I really like on the original line.
 
So at the beginning of this month, I did a quick shop in boots; I say quick, it really wasn't, I was in there for what felt like hours, and pretty much bought the whole shop. Whilst I was there I picked up Barry M's Prickly Pear, and Blueberry.
 
 
 
 
 
 
These two colours have literally been on my nails throughout the month, it's been either one or the other, because seriously.. how pretty are they?!
 
If you haven't tried Barry M Gelly Nail Paints before, which I'm sure you have, they're amazing quality for such a small price. They claim to provide an extra glossy finish in one coat, they're apparently highly pigmented, chip resistant, and have a gel like finish. Yep, I think I could agree with that.. However I find I need to apply 2 coats for the colours to be opaque. They do chip, but I notice this starts to happen after 3-4 days, sometimes longer, which for me is pretty good as my job is quite hands on!
 
Left - Prickly Pear. Right - Blueberry.
 
 
The finish is also brilliant, super shiny and smooth, meaning you don't need to use a top coat, which is handy if you're stuck for time.
 
If you wanted to pick these up for yourself, they're £3.99 each, £1 dearer than the originals! I'd a million percent recommend them, they're so so shiny and for such a small price you'll be getting yourself an absolute bargain!
You can find them here.
Psssst, it's buy one get the second half price on Barry M products at the minute!!
 
 
 
Do you have any of the Barry M Nail Paints? I'd love any recommendations!

  4. Both are such lovely colours! I don't see many nail polishes from their original line anymore, it's mostly just the gelly, speedy and other nail effect polishes that I tend to see xx

  7. These are such pretty colours!! I have three of the Barry M nail varnishes and they're so pretty!! I love the " SNP 1 White 316" one, which actually isn't white but is one of those sequin-y over coats - it's so pretty! Also, I dunno if it's just me (probably is) but I find the bottle shapes really nice haha!!
