Hey everyone! Today I have the absolutely gorgeous new Barry M Summer Gelly collection to show you. When I first saw this collection I thought it seemed a bit mismatched, and I wasn't entirely sure if the colours worked together, but now I've seen them in person I definitely think they all work well together. There are a lot of really unique and gorgeous colours that definitely deserve a chance. The collection includes my new favourite off-white polish, as you'll see below, so that alone is enough to make the collection my favourite!
First up is Almond*, this was 2 coats. Out of all the polishes this had the thickest consistency, but it was manageable. Shown without topcoat. This reminds me a lot of Vanilla from the Matte Collection, i've yet to try them side by side but from the images this seems to be slightly darker
Next is Damson*, this again was 2 coats but it was almost completely opaque in one. I prefer to do 2 coats but I think you would be more than likely be able to get away with one if you're in a rush etc. My issue with this polish was the smell, it's quite strong. Allie from Brit Nails suggested that it may be attempting to smell like fruit, but to me it's just chemically. If you can get past the smell (which doesnt linger), this polish is great. Shown without topcoat
Next is Elderberry*. I absolutely LOVE this colour, it's so unique. This was 2 easy coats without topcoat
Kiwi* is a gorgeous vibrant green. This was two easy coats without topcoat. Although it's a bit more oily than your usual creme polish in consistency, that actually makes it easier to apply smoothly
Another unique colour from the collection is Olive*. There are plenty of olive colours out there, but I think this is more subtle than most. This was two easy coats without topcoat
Pink Punch* is a gorgeous bright pink. This was two easy coats without topcoat
And finally is Coconut*, my absolute favourite from the collection. I've been looking for the perfect creme polish for a long time. Most people claim to have found it in OPI - My Vampire Is Buff but for me that's still too close to a nude rather than a cream. This however, is just what I've been wanting. You've already seen it in my nail art from yesterday, and I'm sure you'll be seeing it repeatedly. I'll definitely be purchasing another bottle of this. Shown is 2 easy coats without topcoat
Overall, I'm really impressed with the whole collection. They're amazing quality and opacity, and they're all great for summer. If I had to pick one colour it would of course be Coconut, but Elderberry is a close second!
These are all available now in Boots and Superdrug, and online at Barry M, and they retail at £3.99
