Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint in Papaya

hey guys!


I recently purchased this gorgeous little thing; Barry M's new collection! When I got it, I didn't realise that it was a new thing (silly me), but it is sooooooo good.

Now, I am not the best of people when it comes to painting nails, one, because I can never apply it smoothly, and two, because I get it everywhere. However, it is amazing! It is available in 12 other colours, and all gorgeous colours by that! I also love the mint green one that they do.
As it is Gelly Hi-Shine, it leaves a gorgeous smooth and shiny effect once it has been applied and has dryed! The packaging is lovely - classy glassy (as I say!) and it is bigger to what you would think it would be! Meaning lots more applications! It leaves such a good shiny smooth surface that it could actually be mistaken for acrylic nails - until it chips anyway. But even then, it is said to be a lot more durable. A novice Nail Painters dream! AND, for £3.99 - you can't go wrong!

This is just a swatch of it (which to be honest, doesn't do it justice at all) and an identical one with just a glitter nail polish over the top as I wondered if the glitter would ruin the shinyness - but it didn't!

Oh and as I am on the subject of nails - which I don't too often, I added one coat of the Maybelline Salon Manicure Protecting Top Coat, and it made my nails SHINYER and it just adds that extra coat of durability which I feel that I need as I am so clumsy. So yeah, bigging up this little beauty!

If you like this nail post, then let me know and I will be sure to do more of them!
