Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paints

I've been loving a gel look on my nails recently, especially after using my Sensationail kit. I thought I'd try to find some high street, more affordable alternatives. Top of my list are these Gelly Hi-Shine Paints from Barry M. These have been out for a while now and they have a variety of lovely shades which we now come to expect from this brand! I picked up the shade Blueberry, which you can probably guess is the coloured one, and the shade Papaya, which is a lovely coral hue.

I decided to use Blueberry, I think this might be my new favourite nail varnish colour. It's such a different blue to what you normally find, in one light it looks blue but in a slightly different light it can almost look purple. These are so pigmented and you can get away with just one coat. They also have a high shine finish to them meaning you could skip the top coat if you wanted. So these nail paints are perfect if your in a hurry, one coat and your good to go! I also find that gel affect varnishes have a slightly longer lasting power, they're slightly thicker than the average polish meaning that you may get an extra day or two out of your mani.

These are fast becoming my favourite affordable nail varnishes, have you tried the Barry M Gelly Paints yet? Which are your favourite colours?! x
