Barry M have left me with candy coloured dreams of turning forward the clock and skipping right on in to springtime. Their already wonderful range of Gelly Nail Paints is being expanded with the introduction of some scrumptiously exotic tutti-frutti inspired shades, in addition to the new spring summer sweetheart coloured delights of the textured nail effects range. The most colourful brand in cosmetics is completely affordable and what's more, Barry M never test on animals; all of their products are suitable for vegetarians. Impressive, non? Now I've got your bunny-loving selves attention, I'll tell you about the dreamy new shades. On sale at £3.99 from Feb 13th at BarryM.com and Superdrug, and Boots from Feb 20th.
These hi-shine delights leave you with an super-shiny mani. Having had a gellish manicure before, I'd say that these beauties leave you with the exact same look. The application is stress-free; no streaks, good converage even with one coat and a fast drying time. The wear is extremely long lasting and remains high shine. The new fruity shades are no less than completely dellectable.
The gritty, matte formula just oozes east end cool. There is an essence of grunge, though the candy floss shades give a significantly sweet, playful aspect to them! I do hope you can see the effect in the photographs; it feels like fine, tiny grains of sand on your nails. It's achieved by lots of glitter particles mixed in; although I feared it might feel a little strange but it feels rather nice, I cant stop touching them! Beware, you may have an increased urge to eat saccharine goodies ;)
