Barry M Pomegranate

I’m more than a little late on the band wagon with these. They’ve been all over blogs for the past few months, but to be honest, the pastels shades didn’t take my fancy and this gorgeous pink had been sold out everywhere I looked before this weekend.

This is Barry M’s Gelly Hi-Shine formula in Pomegranate, a gorgeous vibrant pink-red. It’s formulated to make your nails look like gel nails. The consistency is thick and super-opaque. The picture below is with one coat, without a top coat, so if you don’t like faffing around with three coats of colour and a top coat, then these are definitely the polishes for you!

They have a lovely shiny finish and dry quickly, however, I would advise that you don’t skip your base coat with this shade in particular (I can’t say for the other colours, but I presume the pastels will be ok) but this stained my nails pretty badly.

Otherwise, I was really impressed for the £3.99 price tag. They’re currently 2 for £6 in Superdrug too. Bargain. It seems that my love affair with Barry M has been rekindled…
