Barry M Gelly Swatches

Barry M Gelly

So a while ago I picked up just couple of the Barry M Gelly polishes and I finally managed to get them all swatched. These are all gorgeous, shiny polishes and all opaque in two coats with a fast drying time. I already want to get more, which just goes to show how much I love them! Though I will admit to having a weakness for Barry M polishes, they're just always such stunning shades, dry quickly enough even for impatient me and are affordable (especially with regular offers in Boots and Superdrug and discounts through the Barry M newsletter!) and readily available.

 Papaya is a gorgeous soft peachy-orange shade.

Prickly Pear is another pastel, a gorgeous lavender and one of my favourites of the polishes I picked up.

Greenberry is a bright green-blue. Little more green than you see here, but this is close enough. Lovely and bright without being too neon.

Grapefruit is a bright bright pink (brighter than you see here and slightly less corally). Perfect for the spring/summer neon trend :)

Satsuma is bright orange (for some reason it looks slightly pink here, it's orange I promise). Another shade that's perfect for the spring/summer neon trend.

Watermelon is my other favourite, a beautiful dark teal. I adore this shade. This is opaque in one coat, possibly due to it being a darker shade.

I love these polishes. They can be a bit thick and gloopy, I think that's due to the gelly-formula, but they apply easily and smoothly regardless. And as I said, dry fast. I already want to nip back to Boots and pick up Dragon Fruit, Plum and possibly Pomegranate. They're all gorgeous.

Gelly Nail Paints are available from Boots, Superdrug, many larger supermarkets or online at the Barry M site. They retail for £3.99.

    1. I do love these, it's so tempting to just buy all the colours. Oh well, at least they're affordable!
