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.

Models Own Aciiied Nail Varnish

My lovely fiance built me a light box and I am in love. I don’t have to wait for the 20 seconds in a British day where there is daylight to take photos! It is amazing!

This is Models Own Aciiied nail varnish, a bright neon lime green that is as pretty as it is garish. I love bright colours and this is definitely a new favourite. This is two coats with a Seche Vite topcoat.

It doesn’t look like this nail varnish is available from Models Own anymore, but there may be a similar one in the neon ‘polish for tans’ range HERE.

Inglot 954 Nail Varnish

I cannot stop staring at this nail varnish. Just LOOK at it! Inglot 954 nail varnish is a very pretty acid green creme polish with a very subtle bright green shimmer that gives it depth. If this isn’t summer in a bottle I don’t know what is!

 

This had really good coverage, you could probably get away with one clever coat but this is two coat topped with my trusty Seche Vite.

You can have a peek at the full Inglot range HERE. I also reviewed one of their beautiful matte nail enamels HERE.

Don’t mind me, I’ll just stand here staring at my nails forever…
