NOTD: Barry M Gelly in Greenberry

My NOTD


I went to the dentist earlier in the week and decided I deserved a treat for being so brave.
Enter Barry M's Gelly nail paint in Greenberry;


These photos were taken in natural sunlight and while the Gelly looks more blue in the pictures, it is actually more green in the flesh.

The colours in the S/S13 Gelly range are GreenBerry (pictured above), Lychee (beige), Papaya (orange) and Dragonfruit (pink).

The application process was quite tricky with the Gelly nail varnish. The first coat I applied was streaky and see through and the second coat dragged and become blotchy. The third coat, however, looked perfect not only because it was evenly spread and smooth on the nail.

My mother commented that the finish looked similar to the Shellac nails which is a great result from a £3.99 nail varnish.

Chipping occurred after roughly 3 days on the tips of the nails and the thick varnish got dented slightly (see my index finger in the first picture). 

I've recently purchased the Lychee colour as well so keep an eye on my instagram and twitter for pictures! 


Have you purchased any of the Gelly range? What did you think?

      I thought three coats was a bit excessive too :/

  13. Ooh pretty, I think this might be one of the ones I picked up and need to swatch :). Shame it sounds like a bit of a pain to apply.
