REVIEW | Barry M Gelly Hi-shine Nail Paint in Lychee with Swatches









I had been looking for some lovely new spring nail polishes and was particularly after a good nude shade. The thing is I don't like nude shades which are too opaque, quite a lot are. So when I saw that the Barry M Jelly varnishes seemed like good solid colours I was very excited to try them.

As soon as I saw the colour Lychee I had to get it. It is a warm nude colour with a hint of latte. It is just divine. With boots having their 3 for 2 offer on I picked up a couple other things too which you can see in my haul post here.

I decided to review the Lychee first because, well basically I couldn't wait any longer. It is so yummy scrummy!

First of all I think the price is really good at £3.99. It is a pound more expensive than the other Barry M polishes but the consistency is very different so I think it is justified.

It is easy to apply as it comes with a good shaped brush and all you really need is 1 coat which is amazing. My nails have 2 coats on in the pictures but there really is not much difference between 1 and 2 coats. 1 is definitely enough.

The only negative point about this nail polish is that it takes ages to dry. I am talking a good 20 minutes. So if you want a gorgeous flawless look you really will have to be patient.

Overall I love the colour Lychee and the Barry M Jelly's. I will definitely be buying more. So much so that I have decided to give 2 Gelly Polishes away as a cheeky treat for helping me reach 500 twitter followers! Entry 1: All you have to do it follow me on twitter here and retweet any tweet I post about the giveaway! Entry 2: Enter via the rafflecopter here.

  1. I went over to your Twitter account and I was shocked that I wasn't following you.... when I enjoy a blogger, I usually follow every thing about them... ;)

    The nail polish is divine Ashly, however; I probably wouldn't use it since it takes a good twenty minutes to dry... I am not that patient... lol :D
