Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paints

Hello everyone! I finished all of my exams today which I'm so happy about, and I now have a three month summer break - so plenty of time for blog posts! I thought I would do a review of the Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint. I own two of the shades, Greenberry and Blueberry (in the picture below, Greenberry is on the left and Blueberry is on the right, which you have most probably already guessed, haha!)

These nail polishes are absolutely amazing. The colour you see in the picture is the colour that comes out on my nails, which is great because some nail polishes look gorgeous in the bottle and on your nails show a completely different colour or effect. The colour is so bright and vibrant and looks amazing on the nails, which is perfect for the summer months.

With these polishes, you only need around two coats to achieve a great opaque texture on the nails. When applying, you will notice that the polish is quite thick, but once it has dried, the polish sets and gives you an amazing glossy finish. It actually looks very similar to shellac nail polishes because of the incredible high shine finish. So, the name of this product really matches up to the quality of the product!

I am currently wearing Greenberry on my nails, I've had it on for around 3-4 days now and I only have one very, very tiny chip, but apart from that it still looks like I've only had the product on my nails for one day, which is amazing! Greenberry is a gorgeous, vibrant turquoise/mint colour which I really like because turquoise and mint green are my favourite colours. Blueberry is different to a lot of other nail polishes I own, which is why I love it so much. It is a light blue with a hint of lilac. As these nail polishes are so thick and glossy, they do take a while to dry, and I can be impatient with this, however the finish I am left with is worth the wait!

I have to say, these are some of the best nail polishes I've tried because of the gorgeous summery colours, and I like the names of them too. All of these nail polishes have fruity names which makes them even more summery, haha! I would really recommend these nail polishes as they are very reasonable in price and the high quality glossy finish looks so nice on the nails.
