barry m gelly nail polishes

26/02/2013


there's been a huge hype surrounding these products at the moment so i thought "screw it" i'm getting them. these were the two shades that stood out most for me at the time, but after using them i do want to pick up a few more shades. i'll be completely honest and say i don't understand what difference i'm supposed to see in my nails between these and a normal nail polish. even so i found application to be really easy with minimal mistakes. i really love the brightness of the colours, as it means they really do stand out and i've got asked a few times what i'm wearing on my nails. one thing barry m can be credited for is the lasting power of these polishes. i'm onto my fourth day wearing prickly pear and i only have two small chips that are barely noticeable, and that's only because i was picking at them. this is remarkable for me as more expensive polishes such as model own or esteè lauder literally come off after two days for me. i've always enjoyed buying from barry m as they're so affordable and the range of shades they sell is amazing, they probably so have every colour under the sun.

i know this is a pretty pathetic excuse of a review but i think the pictures speak for themselves. plus, there's only so much you can say about nail polishes without sounding like a robot.

  5. I have Blood Orange on right now, and whereas, it's not as glossy as I expected - the staying power is so great! I also have Greenberry, leaving that one until the sun comes out though! xo

  9. I loveee prickly pear, what a beautiful shade. They sound like the longevity is brilliant, so I think these might have to be my next purchase. Not that I need more polishes, hah :)

  10. I still have yet to try these, I really like the colours in the range. The more reviews I read the more I think less of (not that different to the normal range) However, I am still looking forward to trying these. Brilliant review! :) XO
