Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Grapefruit 235
I didn’t know what to expect from Barry M’s foray into jelly polishes. It wasn’t sheer and squidgy (you know what I mean!) like true jelly polishes, and it was actually a bit of a nightmare to apply – steaky, draggy and gloopy. But the final result is lovely and so shiny – with no top coat. Yes, you heard me right – I didn’t use Seche Vite on a manicure. I feel a bit faint.
I’m really torn on this ‘Gelly’ range – if the end result is this beautiful, does it matter that they’re quite annoying to apply? Has anyone else tried these? Any tips for me?
Also, I’ve included swatch photos from when my nails were nubs *and* when I had my amazingly beautiful (albeit slightly impractical) talons. I have a feeling people probably prefer the shorter nails…
