Barry M Summer 2013 Gelly Nail Varnish Review

Hey everyone! I totally meant to post this last night but I got so engrossed in doing my work (by which I mean watching Parks and Rec and pretending to do my work) that I forgot. Sorry about that. But anyway, today I have a review of the AWESOME new Barry M Gellys. This is the third set they've released, you can see my review of the second set here. This time around there are 5 new colours, and I think they're right on trend for summer. As always the rest of the photos will be after the jump!

First up is 'Mango' which is a brilliant orange, this was 2 easy coats and this is without top coat (but because it's a gelly it doesnt really need one because they're super shiny, and they last well too)

Secondly, is 'Blue Grape', this again is 2 coats, without top coat. I wore this colour for 4 days with absolutely no chips and very very minimum wear, despite attacking my finger with a shoe, or my shoe with my finger, whichever way you look at it.

Next is 'Key Lime'* which is 100% my favourite lime green ever. Again this was 2 coats with no top coat. This has been compared to 'Lime Green' by Barry M, but it has a much much better formula and is also slightly darker. Also, I'm pretty sure Lime Green has been discontinued as I couldn't find it on the website

Next is 'Passion Fruit'* which is a lovely red, but it seems to have come out more pink in pictures, this again was 2 coats but I could probably have got away with one. No top coat

Finally, is my personal favourite of the collection: 'Guava'*, this was a difficult one to capture on camera but either way it still looks great, this was 2 coats with no topcoat. LOOK AT IT.

Overall I'm really impressed with this collection! It's definitely suited to summer and as usual the formula is perfection. As always I love the gelly collection and can't wait to see more!

These will be released in Superdrug on June 5th and Boots on June 12th, priced at £3.99 each

What do you think? Will you be getting any of these? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I might be a bit sad and turn up at Superdrug at the crack of dawn on the 5th as I'm slightly in love with these shades. Key Lime and Blue Grape are my favorites! xo

  2. Key Lime is definitely going on my wish list! Raspberrykiss xo

  3. i want the entire collection!!! it all looks gorgeous. i think if i saw them in real life i might have dupes of some of them already though :(

  4. Well of course I want them all. Do I need them all? Probably not, but that hasn't deterred me yet!

  5. I definitely want Guava and Key Lime! They're all stunning, but I've got similar shades to the other three, but the two greeny ones are very unique! x

  6. I love these! I think i'm gonna have to buy Guava - it's such a nice blue! :)

  7. Love Blue Grape and Guava too!
    I seem to buy at least 1 Barry M Nail Polish every week, will defo be getting these.

  8. I love them all and they must be mine!!!

  9. Did you think the colour cracked?
