Barry M Gelly hi shine nail polish Huckleberry

Barry M have quite a good range of the Gelly hi shine nail polishes they come in a range of colours from brights to pastels and it is a lovely range. I got this shade, Huckleberry, when I was at the clothes show in December and I knew it would be a beautiful shade for spring and into summer. The pastel blue is a lovely classic shade that is quite versatile and can be worn most of the year. The Gelly hi shine polishes are a normal nail polish version of gel nails and are designed to have the look and shine that gel nails give with the comfort and ease of doing them in your own home. 

The nail polish comes in the regular Barry M bottle that I really like, they are easy to hold and store and look really sleek and nice. I have always been a fan of them as they are convenient and it makes me happy that they are not some weird shape that is impossible to deal with like some of the other ones I have from different brands. 

The colour is a beautiful pale blue shade that is more white based than blue based. It is a lovely icy colour that looks more white in some lights and more blue toned in others. The colour is very pretty and although I don't often go for pale nails I really do like the way this looked on the nails and I will reach for it a lot in the summer months I can already tell! 

The colour needs two coats to be opaque on the nails but I do like to do two coats on my nails anyway as I find it tends to last longer and looks a little nicer, as well as leaving minimal room for error if it looks full coverage in one lighting and you realise it isn't in another. The colour covers the nail perfectly in two coats and has a really nice glossy finish that does mimic the finish I get when I get gel nails done at a salon.

The range has a lot of different colours from nudes, to brights and through to darker berry shades, and they have such a lovely finish that they are some of my favourite nail polishes I own. I love the way they look like true gel nails and are so affordable. The Barry M gelly polishes retail at £3.99 which I think is really reasonable and they often go on offer for 3 for 2 or similar offers so it makes them even more affordable and such a good purchase, I will definitely be looking at the stand again when I am shopping for which ones to pick up next!
