Nail Art: My Girly Pink Nails By Barry M, Gelly Nail paint

I had to pop down to Boots on my break to get a new
hair colour and obviously (as always) I didn’t walk out with just a colour. I
think trip to Boots is becoming very dangerous for me. I believe there should
be a warning sign on the door. Enter at you own risk.

I was feeling very girly that day. I went to get a
new shade of blond and I thought I might as well get something pinky.
Immediately I thought about a nail polish.  This shade is not new, it was
actually released last year. Although Barry M released new collection this
year. The summer compilation is represented by these five lovely new colours:
Key Lime, Guava, Passion Fruit, Blue Grape and Mango.


My personal favourite must be Mango and Key Lime. I
would love to see these two colours together. I think I will have to add these
two to my wish list 🙂 I can’t wait to purchase them! This gelly line is only
£3.99, one pound more that their classic nail paint line, which is not too bad
and if you are lucky enough, you can get them 3 for 2 at Boots.

Last year Barry M Gelly Nail Paint collection


Even though I liked the colours I wasn’t feeling it
at that moment. I wanted something more summery, nothing too bold. The one
that’s stricken my eyes was Gelly nail paint from Barry M. It is very cute
pink, I call it proper girly pink and Barry M calls it Dragon Fruit. Dragon
Fruit seemed to be the right decision. It was very easy to apply. All I had to
do is just to use base coat and then two layers for a full coverage. I left it
to dry for about  half an hour, just to make sure it won’t get damaged. In
the meantime I played some Sudoku on my phone, otherwise I would get
bored….And then, accidents happen. I had to do one of my nails again, so 30
minutes first time round wasn’t enough…Never mind, another few games of
Sudoku it is then…

and the result…tah dah…it looked amazing. I
hope you can see the shine on the pictures below but I was very happy with it
🙂 What do you think? I think definitely worth waiting for it to dry up but I
wouldn’t recommend it as a quick nail polish fix.

Oh and yeah, you are right, it wasn’t the only nail
polish I treated myself with. I guess lovely weather outside ‘s making me more
experimental. I saw this lovely Confetti Nail Effect Nail Paint, again Barry M. The post is live now here!
