I love Barry M, it' s a cheap and cheerful brand which doesn't leave you feeling guilty after you pick up a couple of nail-paints-you-didn't-really-need on a whim.
For their prices they always deliver and I am a huge fan of their Gelly Hi shine nail paints.
Of course I was excited to hear what they had in store for Summer. The packaging of the Sunset Daylight Curing Nail Paints confused me at first, although the bottles are the same the logo and font looked far more luxurious than the Barry M I am used to. From the start I knew this was going to be something a little bit special. Along with the bright shades there's a gold bottle which contains a top coat to use with them - I particularly love the look of this one, the gold bottle sure stands out from other plain top coats in my collection.
I was lucky enough to win this set and I'm so pleased I did, it would have been tough deciding which shade to purchase first other wise!
The Sunset Nail Paints not only have fab shades for the hotter weather but they give you long lasting shine that you'd get from pro salon gels. This is all done with the help of their top coat which sets and cures the nails without the need for a UV lamp.
There is no need for base coat as the special formulation bonds to the nail like a gel would. You just apply two coats of colour and follow with one of the top coat and you're good to go.
There's 7 shades to choose from - If you're anything like me you'll have several songs stuck in your head after reading the the names of these.
The Way You Make Me Teal
Can't Get you Out Of My Red
I've Been Pinkin'
Peach For the Stars
Do It Like A Nude
You Drive Me Navy
I think there's a shade to suit everyone, if you're looking for a subtle look for day wear the palest shade 'do it like a nude' is perfect. 'Can't get you out of my Red' is a red that really pops, the pink and peach shades are so bright which I love for Summer, they are my definite favourites. If you prefer a dark shade 'You Drive me navy' and 'The way you make me teal' are still vibrant enough to pull of in Summer but very different from your usual Summer brights. I have already decided 'Fuchsia Generation is my perfect Summer toenail shade.
These claim to last up to 10 days and is removed with regular nail polish remover. I've only had these 3 days so I haven't tested them out to the full but I will be updating this to see how the lasting time is. They are £4.99 each and available at Superdrug and Boots now!
Will you be picking any of these up?
