Any one else absolutely love Barry M? Always a fail safe purchase for me and I love being able to go to a shop, pick up some new nail colours and still have some pennies left over.
I’m a bit later to the party with their Sunset Daylight Curing polishes, I picked up two nude-ish colours and the first one I’ve used is ‘Do It Like a Nude’ – cannot stop singing Jessie J whenever I see this!
You use these nail polishes just the same as any other, however the top coat has to be the Sunset Daylight Curing TopCoat. Don’t make the same mistake as me and forget to pick this up…oops!
I used my normal Essie base coat and then applied two coats of Do It Like a Nude, before applying the topcoat.
The coats of the nail varnish need to be thin, I kind of ignored this but it is definitely worth noting. The first time I used these polishes I was in a rush so was a little heavy handed – I got it half on my fingers and half on the nail, that’s the kind of rush!
Second time round I did use thinner coats and it was much better. I would say that they weren’t 100% opaque so you could see some brush strokes and nail colour underneath but they weren’t too bad and were only noticeable if you looked closely, maybe three thing coats would be required if you want full opacity.
I was pretty impressed with how long they lasted, my nails chip easily at work and these did last the week very well.
I’m planning on using this on the hen weekend I’m currently on because I don’t have the time nor the baggage allowance to take any with me, it will have to last the four days so fingers crossed it will!
These polishes come in at a bargain £4.99 and can usually be found on offer in Boots or Superdrug which is very handy!
There are 16 colours in all and I’m a big fan of the nudes so far, perhaps I will have to pick up some pinks, oranges and red too!
Have you tried the Sunset Gel range before? What’s your favourite colours??
