Barry M Gelly High Shine Nail Paint

I’m going to cut right to the point on these nail colours – I love them. It’s not just the colours though, the Barry M Gelly Shine Nail Paints are amazing. Truly, if you haven’t tried them – you’re missing out. Big time.

Formula wise they’re smooth, apply like a dream and dry to an insanely glossy finish. They look like shellac or gellish etc. The brighter coloured shades are really pigmented and eye catching and the nude is a flattering one that doesn’t make you look like you have dead fingers.

The Green Berry shade (turquoise) currently adorns my nails as I type this and it has drawn so many compliments since I applied it three days ago. Now Wednesday (as I type) and it’s still going strong with no sign of tip wear or any chipping.

I’m on a total mission to hunt down the super bright blue shade from the new Summer collection as it looks like a total stunner. The Boots close to where I work has no Barry M nail varnish in stock at all apparently due to a fault, so need to find elsewhere. Any other Gelly shades I need in my life??? Comment and let me know!

Available from Superdrug (currently on 3 for 2)

Bought by me.

    I’ve been watching some on the Internet haha and I really want them all to be honest… Grape fruit seems like a pretty nice shade aswell! I’m doubting whether I should get Green Berry or not 🙂

    Great post!

    I also have Green berry! Lovely colour but I find the formula quit thick and if I press my nail into the polish after its dried it seem to make a dent. I much prefer the original formulas

    This makes me wish they sold Barry M in the US even more! I’ve seen so many rave reviews on them. Anyways, the colors you posted are really gorgeous! xx

    Love the Gellys! Really recommend Prickly Pear (lilac), it’s barely left my nails all spring.
