Lots of brands have gone down the gel nail polish route an I have to say Barry M Gelly Hi shine are my favourite of the bunch.
Along with my love of Gelly Hi shine, I make no secret of the fact that I'm a big fan of pastel nails. I think they look amazing with a tan and really give that Spring feeling.
When I heard there were some new shades being launched for 2014 I was hoping that some pastels would be in there. They had a great selection the first time round so to me it seemed like the next step, especially as we move in to the warmer months.
An e-mail dropped in my inbox announcing the 3 new colours were 'Rose Hip' a creamy pale pink, 'Huckleberry' (Though my bottle has Huckleburry on the bottom -anyone else?!) a gorgeous pale blue and my favourite, 'Sugar Apple' a soft mint shade. Mint is probably my favourite nail colour and Greenberry was my favourite shade in the original Gelly Hi shine line up so a cooler version was right up my street.Sugar Apple
Like before, they are really long lasting and I think they look fab. I like that the bottle has the silver lid too, it makes them stand out from the normal Barry M nail paints.Huckleberry
The consistency is pretty good for a pale polish, I often find they can be a bit wishy-washy but these are opaque in 2 coats.
I resisted buying the third Shade 'Rose Hip' which is such a lovely pale pink and don't get me wrong, I love it. But I was wearing my Essie 'Fiji' at the time of swatching it in Boots and it's almost identical. So I didn't need it but if you want a dupe for Fiji, 'Rose Hip' is pretty close!
If I were you I'd snap up all 3 while Boots still have their 3 for 2 offer on!
