Say hello to your new favourite pastel nail polishes...
Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paints are held in high regard within the beauty community and rightly so too. Glossy, opaque colour that applies well and is as cheap as chips (well as long as you don't visit my local chippy, can you say rip off?). For Spring 2014 Barry M have added three truly beautiful milky pastel hues to their expansive Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint line up and they honestly could not be more perfect.
A quick colour break down: Huckleberry is a light true baby blue, Rose Hip is a light milky baby pink and lastly Sugar Apple is a pale aqua - it is too deep and bright to be deemed a mint green but it is my favourite none the less. The trio is fresh and of course very fitting for Spring - I can imagine the three lending themselves very well to floral nail art but I am not talented enough to pull that off!
I have tried the Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint formula in the past and wasn't truly blown away but I do feel like the three new pastel shades have a somewhat improved formulation (how much of that is my imagination I do not know). Each shade despite being a light almost whitened hue applies without streaking, is opaque in two coats, fairly quickly drying and not prone to chipping. Of course like every polish they will chip eventually, I am on my forth day of wearing Barry M Sugar Apple without a top coat and have very minimal tip wear. It is safe to say I am a huge fan of the new Barry M Pastel Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paints, more light Gelly shades please Barry M!
