All hail Barry and his glorious nail paints. Barry M has been my brand of choice for nail varnish for a good few years now as the colour range is amazing and the price is reasonable.
I’ve always been an avid hoarder of all of the collections; however my ultimate favourite (so far) has to be the Gelly Hi-Shine polishes with 12 out of my 40+ collection. I adore how shiny they are without the need for a top coat and the colour pay off is amazing.
A pretty good coverage, you could get away with one coat for the darker colours however two coats does look better and is definitely needed for the lighter pastel colours.
These nail paints have the finer brushes in them, making it a little harder to apply. I personally prefer the larger brush that they have put in the Speedy Qucik Dry range, but the finer brush does allow for greater precision.
Fast! One hand will dry in the time it takes you to paint the other which is really handy (top tip, paint your thumbs last so you can use them to clean up any stray nail varnish from your other fingers).
These last a lot longer than the standard range of nail paints on me, if I don’t pick the colour off then they usually last me around 4 days. Although, I’m sure ‘normal’ people could wear it for a week with no chips.
You can find the nail paints here at a bargain price of £3.99.
