Today’s review is a well known nail polish from Barry M. The Gelly range has been hyped about a lot due to its Hi Shine finish and the impressive range of colours.
Lychee has been raved about by almost every single person – and I’m about to join the list!
Lychee is pale taupe kind of nude, it’s absolutely perfect for so many occasions. It’s the perfect every day colour but also still looks pretty chic when out with friends on the weekend.
A lot of the other colours in the range are pastels and this is the nude version. It comes in at a perfectly acceptable £3.99 and I have always said that Barry M prices are awesome for the quality of the products.
The colour is perfect and although I do have a few issues with the small brush inside the bottle (I’m sure my other polishes don’t have a brush this thin?!) which makes application a little difficult.
I applied 2 coats and it was mostly opaque but there were a few streaks, probably made more apparent by the brush.
I also found that the colour slightly discoloured after a week or so of wear, with a top coat it did last really well and normally I wouldn’t leave it as long as this but it did weirdly get lighter as it began the chip off.
Having said all that I still love it and would recommend it!
Do you love Barry M too? What new polishes have you been buying from them? Which other Gelly polishes would you recommend?
