I have fully been raiding Barry M’s shelves recently, I love their range and the Gelly Hi Shine polishes just get better and better!
My latest purchase (1 of 3, naturally I cannot pick up just one) is the Coconut polish.
This one has already been raved about by many a blogger so I’m just adding in my appreciation to the mix. I really liked Lychee (post here) but sometimes with my super pale skin tone it did look a bit too toffee-ish, so this colour is the perfect option in those times. It’s an off white colour on the nails and so obviously a lot lighter than my own skin colour making it appear to be darker than it actually is, kind of like a free tan if you like!
So how does it apply?
Much like the others the brush is thinner than I’d like, its so much easier to cover the nail when the brush is wider – minimal effort necessary! I put two coats on to get the effect in the images below, some look like they might have been better if another coat had been applied but nevertheless this lasted a full week with a top coat on top and only chipped on day 6.
It definitely looks a little darker in the bottle than on the nails but I still like it. It’s definitely a summer one and I’ll be using this on toes too to make my tan look a little darker!
What do you think of the Gelly Hi Shine range? Do you have a favourite?
I bought two others from the range that I’ll be posting about soon!
