Barry M Gelly Nail Polishes

The Barry M Gelly Nail polishes are everywhere at the moment and with good reason. They're fantastic value for money, they look incredible and there is a colour for everyone; what more can I say.














































I've gone a little gelly crazy recently but I really do rather like my nail polishes, there's something really nice about having ones nails painted. I managed to get some nail wheels off eBay really cheap therefore I could not resist having a little swatching session, which I must admit was much more fun than it really should have been.

From left to right the shades are 'Plum, Watermelon, Papaya, Pomegranate, Prickly Pear, Lychee and Greenberry'






















I find that these do require a little more time to dry between a second coat but that may be me being paranoid as I never seem to give my nail polishes long enough to dry. I use Seche Vite as my topcoat which really has helped with the many chipping issues I used to have, they are now history!

My personal favourites are Papaya and Pomegranate; however I have a real soft spot for Lychee and Greenberry. These nail polishes cost just £3.99 and are available at Boots and Superdrug, plus as there is pretty much guaranteed to be some type of offer on you're bound to get a good deal.

  5. I had Lychee and hated it, it refused to dry and chipped so easily :( but everyone is raving about them so I'm still keen to pick up Papaya and try again :) x

  17. I'm so happy to see some of the other colors besides Blueberry and the other two that have literally graced everyone's blog recently! I could see myself getting tons of use out of Papaya, Prickly Pear and Greenberry. So stunning!! xx

    1. I know! I do not own Blueberry as I have two polishes that are so similar it was very pointless. Greenberry is certainly something else! Xx

  29. That is quite a collection you have there. I love the Gelly high shine nail polishes and think they generally last longer than the normal Barry M nail polishes too x

  30. The colors are beautiful!! I couldn't pick just one, I'd have to get them all if there was Barry M cosmetics available in the place I live :D! Good thing that there is still internet for getting things that I can't get from stores around :).
