Barry M nail polishes

Barry M: Gelly hi-shine - Prickly pear & Papaya//Normal Barry M- Strawberry ice cream// Pink flamingo// Raspberry// Bright purple// Nail effects - Black.

So i have only recently got into the barry M makeup line i was skeptical at first to try any of  the nail polishes because of how cheap they were i thought maybe they wouldn't last very long and chip easily... Boy! was i wrong i absolutely love them, their range of colours are beautiful and you can always find one that will go with an outfit such as for summer, spring, winter, daytime and night time.
I don't have a lot of the varnishes just yet but these are the ones i love so far.

Prickly pear & Papaya

Barry M Gelly Hi-shine - These are my newest additions to my collection, i initially thought that by the name ''Gelly'' that they would be a very goowy consistency and a sort of see through colour [if that makes sense] but that isn't the case as they are just the same as the normal polishes although they do feel thicker when on the nail then the normal polishes do and are a little bit runnier, they also take a few minutes more to start drying. For the hi-shine in my opinion i don't see a difference in shine at all they seem exactly the same as other nail polishes. These colours are great for spring and summer this year as all the pastel colours are in again but if thats not what your into then they also do dark and brighter shades in the gelly hi-shine polishes.

Strawberry ice cream & Pink flamingo

  1. These two shades are also great for summer especially the pink flamingo as it is a very bright pink with a sort of orangey under tone to it and goes well with either pink or coral coloured clothing/ accessories it could also pass with just one coat as it doesn't leave any visible nail. The strawberry i/c could also be warn for summer or even spring as it is a very pale pastel pink which literally does remind me of melted ice cream, this will need a few coats for it to look even but is fine as barry m doesn't take very long to dry.

Bright purple & Raspberry

These two colours are gorgeous for winter and night time, the raspberry polish is also another new addition to my collection and is one of my favorite colours at the minute as it is a dark wine shade with a pinkish tone to it which only takes one coat for it to look great although if your wanting it dark i suggest putting more than one coat on. I do like the bright purple but it isn't the colour that i thought it would be, its a very dark purple which i don't understand why they have called it ''bright'' and isn't very flattering to my skin tone but on the up side it does only take one coat just like the raspberry polish and both do not take long to dry.

Nail effects in Black.

I am a fan of this and i'm not at the same time as it does look great with neon coloured nails but as it makes the pattern its self it doesn't always end up great, sometimes it looks really neat as if you've done all the pattern yourself and other times its very gloopy looking and doesn't always separate to make the pattern.
You don't really have to wait for this to dry as if you blow on it you can see it working straight away, i personally think this looks AMAZING! on long nails especially just on the tips.

All these polishes were purchased from superdrug but are also sold at boots, both stores do alot of 3 for 2 offers on barry m but are only £3.99 on their own anyway. 

Thanks for reading (: x
