Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint

It goes without saying that I am NO nail artist. I think that's more than obvious from the above picture. I rarely ever use nail polish so I haven't had a lot of practice so feel free to leave me some tips on how to apply it a bit better.

Anyway, I've only ever spent money on nail polish 3/4 times, as as far as I remember it has always been Barry M. I LOVE the selection of colours they have and it's not too expensive. I've been watching quite a lot of nail videos lately and decided to buy one last time I hit the shops. (See my drugstore haul here)

I bought this in Passion Fruit, and I reeeeeally love the way it looks on (despite the fact I've ballsed it up a bit - must practice a bit more) and I definitely will purchase a few more of these in different colours. The back does tell you to apply a base coat but I didn't bother with that. I think it looks fine without and is quite thick so it doesn't chip easily. I'd definitely recommend picking this up if you're looking for a new polish, or if like me you're just starting out and want to build up your collection.

There is definitely more of a red tint to the polish than my picture shows, I'd even go as far to say it looks coral in certain lights. Be sure to check this out next time you're out shopping :)
