Product Review: Barry M Nail Paint – ‘Berry Ice Cream’ (308)

purpleEveryone who has read my nail reviews on here before knows how much I love Barry M nail paints. In fact, I don’t even think I’ve reviewed any other brand yet!

However, all my reviews previous have been for Barry M’s Gelly range, whereas I’ve decided to go back to the original paint. This wasn’t really a concious decision to be honest. The fact was that I was looking for a summery pastel shade & I don’t have all the Gelly colours yet as I already had lots of existing colours in the normal paint version & I didn’t want them to go to waste.

Ideally I was thinking about a pale pink colour, however I stumbled across this shade & it grabbed my attention, so I decided to go ahead and use it.

As you can see from the photo, it is a lilac shade, however has a pink undertone too. The colour does come out really nice & coincidentally matches in with the purple/pink colours on the top I am wearing today perfectly. If you are looking for a definite lilac or pink shade however, instead of a combination, I would suggest either opting for the Barry M Gelly Nail Paint in ‘Lilac’ or in ‘Pink Lady’.

The Gelly shades also need fewer coats and dry a lot quicker than the standard paint. I found that I needed several layers until the ‘Berry Ice Cream’ shade looked thickand did have to wait quite a while for it to dry.

As I said however though, I am pleased with the end result, but would have preferred one of the Gelly shades if I’m honest. Maybe it’s time for me to clear out my nail drawer and start investing!

What are your opinions on nail paint – do you use the standard versions or are you Gelly all the way now? Let me know below!

Weekend Nails – Barry M Gelly Effect in ‘Green Berry’

gellyI decided I wanted to wear my orange and white striped shirt out to the pub on Sunday night & I wanted a nail colour that would stand out just as much.

Barry M’s Gelly Effect in  ‘Green Berry’ fit the bill perfectly. Not only is the shade gorgeously vibrant and full after just two shades, it also dries incredibly quickly, which is great, as I was in a rush to get out the door (as usual).

I seriously recommend the nail varnishes from this Gelly range, as they are honestly the best for coverage and drying time I have tried for ages. I have also recently discovered that there are more colours than I though there were in the range too – but hopefully there will be even more soon.

What’s more, they are only £3.99, which is a bit of a bargain anyway, but I hear they are 3 for 2 in Superdrug at the time of publishing – which is even better!

Let me know if you have tried the Gelly range and what your favourite shade is.
