I picked up some of Barry M's Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint today and I am really really impressed with the product. I chose Shade 9 a gorgeous Pomegranate colour whilst in Boots and paid £3.99 for the bottle. At the moment Boots are running a Barry M promotion, if you buy two products you get an effects nail varnish free and there is a wide selection of glitter, gelly and magnetic polishes to choose from.
The application of the polish is easy, the polish covers a large surface of the nail in the first brush and I only needed to use one coat for a very dense coverage. I found that the polish dried within 5 minutes which is always a plus point with me and the finished effect was very smooth and shiny.
I have taken a few snaps of the finish, the colour slightly different to real life in the picture, the actual colour is slightly darker.
I am really impressed with the finish, it reminds me of a Shellac finish and I am confident that the colour will remain chip free for a number of days. I have been making a lot of jewellery today and my nails are still chip free! I am definitely going to purchase some more with Blood Orange, Plum and Grapefruit being top of my wish list.
