Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Summer Nail Paints* £3.99 each
I've talked about my love of the Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint's before and am so excited about the new Summer shades launching next week. There are seven shades in the Summer collection that have got me right in the holiday mood, now if anyone wants to take me away...? The collection is a great mix, it's lovely to see nudes mixed in with brights and in all honesty I love every shade!
Damson-This is the absolute stand out from the range for me, I am obsessed with it. A gorgeous cobalt/cornflower blue, similar to Baker Street by Nails Inc. I'm so in love with this, if you pick up just one shade from the collection then go for this one!
Kiwi- An almost jewel coloured, ultra bright green with a hint of turquoise. It makes me feel all tropical and summery. It'a a really unique shade and unlike anything I've worn before, I will be wearing this a lot on my toes I think.
Pink Punch- This is the only polish from the shade that doesn't excite me so much simply as I have bright pink nail polishes and don't really wear them that much. It's a lovely bright almost neon shade that. It's not that unique a shade but there is nothing like it in the Gelly formula!
Elderberry- Similar to Huckleberry from the Spring collection but a more grey toned shade, if you look at them both together in store you can see how different they are. I really love this and will get a lot of wear from it. It's a really pretty dusty blue.
Almond- A mushroom nude similar to Lychee but much deeper in tone. It has a hint of lilac about it and is a classy neutral shade. It's very easy to wear and quite classic.
Olive- I've not come across anything like this shade and really like it, which I didn't expect to. It's a very light green with a beige/grey tint. Quite unusual but really lovely and flattering.
Coconut- An off white shade that is quite warm in tone and really creamy. It's incredibly flattering on my short nails, making them look much longer. It's my second favourite from the collection and I know I will be wearing this a lot all year round.
The Gelly Hi-Shine formula is my favourite from the drug stores/high street, the lighter shades can be slightly streaky but careful application stops this from being an issue. Two coats gives the most gorgeous glossy and gel like finish that lasts on me for about three days before starting to chip off although the better your topcoat the longer they will last.
For £3.99 each I think they are fab and I love them!
