Barry M Gelly Key Lime

Barry M Gelly Key Lime

I’ve reviewed some of the other Barry M Gelly polishes before and have been very vocal about how much I like them, but I was a bit disappointed by this polish.

The colour is amazing – you can see that from the pictures. I am a huge fan of green polishes on all forms but lime green holds a special place in my heart. This is no exception. It’s bright, it’s summery, it’s obnoxious… it’s perfect. But the formula was a nightmare. It was so thick and stringy. I added some nail varnish thinner to it but it was still horrible. It was drying as I was trying to apply it, which made it drag and made the finish bumpy. I had to apply two coats of Seche Vite to make it look presentable, which is a first for me with Barry M polishes. I’m hoping it was just a bad batch as I have some other polishes from this range lined up to try and will be gutted if they’re just as bad.

You can buy the range HERE. Do let me know your experiences with this product as I’m hoping it’s just this bottle.

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.
