Yesterday I posted (finally) the swatches of the makeup products I received from my friends out in the UK. Today I have the rest of the products I received, which are the Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paints by Barry M.
These got a hugely positive reception on YouTube after Fleur and other UK Beauty Girls first introduced them to us online.
They’ve got a thicker consistency and are all creme finishes. They’re super opaque and you really only need one coat of these to get a full finish. They’re supposed to mimic the look and feel of a gel nail polish.
Color range-wise they’ve got quite a good spread of colors, ranging from pinks to greens to purples to reds. I think they’re generally more bright colors so I don’t know if there’s a neutral in this line of polishes to choose from. There is a good classic red though, so if you’re not all that adventurous with your nail polish picks, then maybe the red will be something you want to try, to just dip your toes into the bright nail pool 🙂
The colors I have are:
- Greenberry – bright turquoise blue-green.
- Guava – springy sky blue.
- Key Lime – vibrant Shrek-like green.
- Papaya – neutral orange with a slight pink undertone to it.
- Prickly Pear – fun almost lavender blue toned purple.
Swatches below all have 2 coats and no top coat. I actually already have a NOTW post with Papaya, so check it out 😀
I believe these aren’t all that expensive at Superdrug, which is where Jess bought them for me. I don’t know how much they were so I can’t give the price for you, but you can definitely find them pretty easily if you’re in the UK.
Have any of you tried these? What do you think?
