Product Review: Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint in ‘Huckleberry’

Barry M 1So if you have see any of my previous nail polish reviews, you will have realised that I’m pretty addicted to the Barry M Gelly range…

As well as drying really quickly, they also give a thick, glossy coat that lasts more than five minutes. The only thing about the range is that there weren’t that many different colour to choose from at first.

However, Barry M has totally pulled it out of the bag by introducing some new Gelly pastel shades for spring/summer! When I heard the news I was literally so excited to go to Superdrug and get some (sad, I know).

There are three new fruit-inspired shades that have been introduced by Barry M. These are ‘Huckberry’, a pastel blue, as well as a pink shade named  ‘Rose Hip‘ (Superdrug haved called it ‘Pink Lady for some reason) along with a minty shade named ‘Sugar Apple. ‘

As you can see above, I opted for the ‘Huckleberry’ shade first, as I’m loving pastel blue nails at the moment. Once again, like the brighter shades that I have used in the range, the polish dried really quickly and with a great shine. You also get a nice thick colour after just a couple of coats, which is great.

This shade looks great if you are wearing other pastel colours. For example, I wore it with a pink fluffy jumper.

Now all I have to do is try both the other new shades – I can’t wait! Superdrug has a deal where you get two of the polishes for £6 at the moment, so make sure you take advantage of that. Normally the polishes are priced at £3.99 each – still a bargain for such a good product.

Let me know what you think of the Gelly polishes or the new shades if you try them out!
