Barry M Gelly Nail Effects

I’m crazily into nail polishes at the minute and I seem to be buying new ones all of the time. Something that I have been wanting to try for a while now though is the Barry M Gelly effects nail polishes. Luckily, these, along with the textured nail polishes, were on offer at 2 for £6 in Superdrug recently. I wish I could have really splashed out like my flatmate who bought 4 bottles but I behaved myself and only bought 2. Both were Gelly effects in colours 305 Pomegranate and 244 Watermelon.

The nail polish comes in the classic Barry M nail polish bottle, which is made from glass. The front of the bottle has on it the Barry M logo, the product information and the name and number of the polish can be found on the underneath of the bottle. Barry M nail polishes have screw top lids which when opened, reveal the brush. Like most nail polish bottles, this one is nothing special but I do like the shape of Barry M bottles more than most because they’re not round.

When it comes to applying this nail polish, I did find it a little trickier than normal which was due to the size of the brush. The brush that comes with the Gelly nail polish is quite thin. I don’t normally mind this at all but each time I pulled it out of the bottle, I had so much excess polish on it that I was constantly wiping it off on the edge of the bottle’s rim. This also means you need to be careful when putting the brush to your nails as you can end up with so much liquid everywhere and it can all be a bit of a mess.

However, once the polish was on, I really liked it. With buying different colours, I have had slightly different outcomes with each. The Pomegranate colour only needed one coat, which was a lovely bright pink while the Watermelon colour, which is a dark green, needed two coats. I can’t say that I’m fully convinced with the ‘High Shine’ that Barry M claim this nail polish has. The Pomegranate colour was wonderfully shiny but the Watermelon didn’t look any different at all from a regular nail polish.

Unfortunately, this nail polishes also chips much more quickly than the other polishes by Barry M. After only one day with both colours, I had bits of the nail polish falling off all over the place.

I guess with this product, it all depends on the colour you buy.

  1. I love these polishes and the dark green one is really lovely xx

    P.s found you via a blog hop

  2. Vanity Fair is stylish and well written, and they push the envelope in celebrity
    reporting, giving readers if not a balanced representation, then at least an interesting angle to a well known personality.
    Also, find one that has includes videos explaining the latest news because
    that is sometimes the best way to see it. The singer will not be charged
    for her public intoxication, but her boyfriend was charged a $30,000 bail fee
    to release himself after he was tested positive for driving under the influence.

  4. Unquestionably believe that which you stated.
    Your favorite reason appeared to be on the web the easiest thing to
    be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries
    that they just do not know about. You managed to
    hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a
    signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
