Barry's Blues


In the UK, we can always rely on good old Barry M to provide excitement with their seasonal releases. This time around, we were lucky enough to get 3 new polishes in the Hi-Shine Gelly range, and an Aquarium collection consisting of 4 duochromes and 2 shred glitter toppers. So far I've picked up Huckleberry Gelly, the palest baby blue, and Pacific, a teal/blue/aqua/turquoise duochrome (I'm not very good at distinguishing between blues, but I think it's safe to say this polish contains them all!). I have to say the formula in both of these were a little tricky to work with: Huckleberry, being so pale, was a bit thick and chalky and Pacific was a little patchy and I got a few bubbles. Both levelled out with two coats and a good topcoat though, so I shouldn't complain. I combined them in a simple dotticure, using bigger dots than I would usually, making my nails look unintentionally Easter eggy!

Have you picked up any of Barry M's recent releases? I will definitely be going back for more! In fact, there's a couple in my Superdrug shopping basket waiting to be checked out as we speak...
