Here is the eagerly awaited Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint in Prickly Pear and Blueberry! I was so excited to try this new innovation from Barry M as I'm sure if your a follower of LLP but if your a new reader, Jess and I have a nail obsession! I love a shiny nail and have a huge collection of pastel shades, which are from lots of different brands, but Barry M always have such a massive range of colours. The Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paints are a new formula that promises to leave your nails extremely glossy, and you'll be pleased to know that they do.

However, I have a few annoyances with this nail paint as due to the much thicker formula of nail paint, which only needs two coats for full coverage, the tiny nail brush is quite awkward to get a perfect finish as the paint can be quite cloggy on the nail if not applied in a few quick strokes. After a few tries this didn't quite leave my nail looking a perfect as Barry M usually applies on my nails.

I have tried this nail paint a few times and I'm afraid it does chip really easily but just to say my job isn't the most glamourous and I'm always using my hands so I have been putting it through some tough conditions. Barry M usually does last well though.

The most amazing thing about this collection is the shades that they have created. They range from electric greens to pastel blues with a few darker colours too. One I had my eye on was a beautiful teal green called Watermelon. These two that I purchased are stunning. I'm loving pastel shades, in ready for Spring/Summer, Prickly Pear is a pastel lilac and Blueberry is a rich shade of baby blue. Let me know what you think of Barry M's new collection, the colours are really beautiful! I would like to buy them all!
