I got some Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paints by Barry M in my mail today and they're swatched already. Talking about ''can't wait to try them''... The important thing is I have a good experience with these. Just a reminder - there are 13 different shades in the Gelly nail effect line, I only have swatches of 8 of them.

You know (or maybe not) I'm not a big fan of jelly nail polish finish and that's exactly what I thought I was gonna get with these polishes. The truth is they only have the best of the jelly finish polish features and that's high glossy shine. I kid you not. They're really glossy and I love it!
Most of them are 2 coaters. That was another surprise for me. I expected watery polishes with some color, but some of them are actually quite pigmented. Pomegranate, Blood Orange, Watermelon and Blackberry have awesome opacity and could be 1-coaters in some cases. The least opaque were Pricky Pear and Papaya which both needed 3 coats for full opacity.
The brush is small but it spreads over the nail wonderfully. I had no problems with the application since the formula is superb on all of them. To be completely honest, I got much more than I thought I was gonna get. These polishes are pretty much great.
My Slovenian readers can get Barry M polishes on Ličila.si website.
*Polishes were sent to me for swatching purposes.
