With Autumn on it’s way I’ve decided to ditch the pastel nail colours and move onto slightly darker shades. I invested in two Barry M nail polishes as they were on offer in Boots and having always used Nails Inc I wanted to try out a different brand.
I love having gels on my nails and as I have my own kit at home I like to do them on myself but this takes up quite a bit of time . When I saw Barry M do their own Gelly High Shine range I got really excited and picked one up in the shade Blue Grape. I was pleasantly surprised, it definitely has the ‘gelly’ effect as promised and the colour is just as bright as it looks in the bottle and only takes a few coats to build up. I did find that it chipped quite quickly compared to Nails Inc but it only took me a few minutes to tidy my nails up so they looked freshly painted.
I’ve heard lots of people talk about Barry M’s Matte range and to be honest, I never really saw the attraction to having matte nails. But after giving this a go, I really like it. It gives off an edgy vibe and looks great with lots of rings and bracelets. Again, it only takes a few coats to build up and this has lasted slightly longer than the Gelly High Shine nail paint.
Overall, I’m pretty impressed with Barry M. Have you tried out these nail polishes?
