I have been, like, freaking out about these for ages. AGES, I TELL YOU.
And now I have them.
AND I ACTUALLY DON’T KNOW HOW I WAS SURVIVING WITHOUT THEM IN MY LIFE.
Too dramatic? Yeah. Alright, so, for those if you who don’t know, or haven’t worked it out from above rambling, I flipping love the Barry M Gelly range, and I have the whole collection, and then three days ago, they come out with five completely fantastic new colours.
Seriously, you should’ve seen me in Superdrug yesterday. Picture a manic expression, windswept hair, carrying an armful (fine. Handful) of nail polishes, constantly looking left and right and snarling at anyone who dared look at me or my beautiful nail polishes.
They’re BEAUTIFUL. They are, without a doubt, in my top ten of the whole collection. Possibly top seven. But that’s not as catchy.
What the hell are you talking about? People walk around with their nails like this all. the. time.
RETURN OF THE OBSESSIVE NAIL POLISH CHART. Some of you know exactly what I’m talking about. The rest of you should consult my last post about these nail polishes.
This one is beautiful. It’s the perfect balance between Pomegranate and Grapefruit, so it’s just a really Summery, ‘safe’ shade, great if you want to try the bright summer nails but aren’t comfortable with yellows and greens. The formula’s fantastic, thick and shiny and easy to apply. You could probably get away with one coat.
This one is absolutely stunning, definitely one of my favourites in this collection. A lot like a more wearable shade of Greenberry. Fantastic formula, beautiful nail polish, opaque in two coats.
This is a brilliant, bright orange, easily my second favourite, and wins points with me just for the name, even though mangoes are yellow, red and green. Oh well. This actually has thinner formula than most of the Gellies, so three coats are needed, but it looks great when it’s done.
They’re going really cartoony with the names. Grapes are red, green or black. Grr. Again, this one has a thinner formula, but the colour is so worth it, it’s beautiful for all year round. LOVE.
Could this not just be called Lime? Or apple, judging by the colour it shows up. I initially didn’t like the look of this one, but on the nails is a really gorgeous tropically-exotic colour. Great formula, too:)
And that’s the new shades! I am completely in love with all of them, they’re beautiful. What are your favourites? Are there any your planning on getting, or already have in this range?
The only thing that annoys me is the names. I love the idea, I love the colours, I love the formula’s, but the names AREN’T RIGHT. It’s like they ran out of fruits the right colour so just went with anything. But anyway, loving these.
Let me know what you think, and as always, comments and recommendations will make me love you forever(: I’m currently looking for a good strengthening base coat, any ideas?
You can pick these nail polishes up for £3.99 each at Superdrug, or on June 12th (I think) they’ll be the same price at Boots.
