barry m gelly hi shine nail paints | blueberry, prickly pear & pomegranate

(L-R Blueberry, Prickly Pear, Pomegranate)

Barry M used to be a firm favourite with me, I owned quite a few of their pastel "ice cream" polishes and got very excited when they launched their Crackle Nail Effect polish. I then got carried away with an array of other nail polish brands and Barry M got left behind until now. I was looking for a lilac shade as it seems to be the only colour I don't own in my ridiculous collection! I had a browse in Boots and noticed there was a 3 for 2 offer on the Barry M range. 

Blueberry grabbed my attention straight away as it reminded me of Essie's Bikini so Teeny and considering I've gone through over half the bottle I decided to pick it up as a sort of back up! Prickly Pear is a pretty lilac tone, just what I was after and Pomegranate, although showing up as more of bright red here it is actually a pinky toned red. The polishes apply nicely and the shine is instant, you could easily get away without a top coat. Blueberry and Pomegranate can be worn with only one coat, but prickly pear needed an extra one as it wasn't quite opaque. Overall I love these polishes, they're a decent price, the glossy finish is amazing and the wear time is pretty good too!

Have you got any of the Barry M Gelly polishes?

  1. These are so so pretty! I've seen some good reviews on this range now so I might have to pick up a few of the shades myself, especially if they're on offer! xo

  6. i'm a fan of the lilac! how does it apply? it 'sounds' like a gel, i was wondering if it just applied like an average polish or thicker? i'm definitely going to pick up the lilac, it's the perfect shade.

  9. I used to love the Barry M pastel colours too, but I found that Models Own polishes were a lot better for only a little bit more. These however look so gorgeous, I think I need to give them a second chance :)
