The Perfect Barry M Gelly Winter Colour


-- My camera quality has become more crap
than I ever thought it would, sorry --
If there was ever a time to stock up on lovely wintery shades from Barry M, it would be now. I bought this when I spent my Christmas money and as the brand have always delivered top notch results, I thought I would give another colour a whirl. As expected, the Gelly Hi Shine caught my eye as it was a perfect brown/orange like shade - I've never had anything like this, so I thought it would be perfect.
The formulation is perfect and I only needed to add one coat. (I didn't include a picture as my nails chipped and they look disgusting after a week - to no fault of the paint but I just split my nail ew) It's quite thick and goes on nicely, it's like a pampering manicure in your own home really, and I think it dries really nicely. Think shiny, smooth and the envy of everyone around you.
For a mere £3.99, I think it's amazing, compared to the likes of Bourjois where you need like 3 coats for £6. If there's one brand to rule them all in the nail industry, it would be Barry M - just make sure you avoid the makeup, they're a bit disappointing. Also, make sure if you try it, you don't shove your perfect nails in people's faces haha.
