Swatches & Review: Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint

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.

Thanks for looking and commenting!

  8. I have four of these & I LOVE THEM SO MUCH. I'm definitely going to have to go back for more - they're in the 3 for 2 at Boots at the moment. Also, Greenberry is an amazing colour, if you don't have it already. Gorgeous swatches as ever.

  9. o moj bog, kok so lepi, prav vsi so mi všeč, še posebi pa: Watermelon, Pricky pear, Blueberry, Papaya in Grapefruit- in ja to so skoraj vsi, pa tudi ostali so mi všeč, samo mogoče že prevečkrat videni (no, če sem iskrena so tudi že vsi ostali odtenki že videni, ampak očitno se jih še nisem naveličala :)). Pa zelo lepo postavljeni prsti, jaz sem kot debil, ko moram fotografirat svoje nohte, kot da ne bi znala kontrolirat prstov, vsak gre po svoje :D.

    1. He he, praksa dela svoje, čeprav jih moram tudi jaz kdaj 'ročno' postavljati na pravo mesto. =)

  10. Ne znam razložit točno zakaj, ampak tale izdaja(serija? linija?) mi je taaakooo strašno všeč! Sem se prav razveselila, ko sem vidla v readerju predogled tele objave! *\o/* :D
    Aja, pa "Blackberry" naj bi bil bolj vijoličen, ne?, je to spet "a case of dark purple/plum, ki se noče fotografirat"?

    1. Blackberry je modre barve, tako kot se vidi na slikah. Oglej si odtenke na Barry M strani in boš videla. Sem pa pobrskala po Googlu in opažam, da imajo laki dvojna imena. Na uradni strani je vijoličen "Plum", moder pa "Blackberry", medtem ko imajo nekatere blogerke drugačna imena - za vijoličnega "Blackberry" in modrega "Blue Plum". Nimam pojma zakaj. Verjetno je prišlo do napake pri nalepkah z imeni.

    2. aaa, tako torej. Ja, sej to me je zmedlo, ker sem na raz(lič)nih blogih vidla različne barve za ista imena. o.O

  11. Sem zaljubljena v Papayo, ampak morm se prepričat, da PAČ ne rabim še enega oranžnega laka :D

  12. Hi,


    In this case 'gelly' refers to them being like fake gel nails from the salons, not jelly as in the sheer formula. That's why you were pleasantly surprised.

    I only have Papaya and I have to say I dont find the formula good or easy to apply and the brush isnt good either, it is a bit messy for me.

    Looking forward to trying maybe Watermelon, Pomegranate and Satsuma. After these swatches I feel like Blueberry and Prickly pear would be nice as well!
