I have a review on the new Barry M nail paints! I have been desperately trying to find these, according to my local Superdrug they don't exist :/ But Ive finally found them, I was going to get other colours (Gelly Hi-Shine in Lychee) but they were sold out and I didn't fancy any of the others at the moment.
I got one of the new Spring Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paints and one of the new Textured Effect Nail Paints, Which I couldn't wait to try! I got both in a mint colour, as my first ever Barry M Nail Paint was in Mint Green and has to be my all time favourite!
Firstly is the Gelly Hi-Shine in Greenberry, This is part of the new spring range of Gelly Hi-Shine's. There are three other colours in this range called Lychee (Grey-Nude), Dragon Fruit (Pink with a slight shimmer) and Papaya (Peachy Coral). These dry to a very shiny, "Just had a Salon Gel manicure", Finnish. People do say you can do it in just one coat, but I had to apply Greenberry in two coats as just one was too streaky.
Lastly is the polish Ive been most excited for, Ridley Road Textured Effect Nail Paint! All of these Nail Paints are named after roads which the creator of Barry M (Barry Mero) set up stalls on. The other three shades in the range include Atlantic Road (Bright Blue), Kingsland Road ( Pale Pink) and Station Road (Bright Yellow with Shimmer), These are all very similar to colours from the Ice-Cream Nail Paint range.
These Remind me of the O.P.I Liquid Sand Polishes in texture, they dry very quickly and Ridley Road needed two coats , maybe three depending how you wanted the finish to be. The finish is kind of matte but reflects the light well.
I found both polishes were very quick and easy to remove, I cant wait to get a hold of the other colours in both ranges!
Have you tried the Gelly Hi-Shine or Textured Effect Nail Paints, What did you think? Which effect is your favourite?
