Barry M Sugar Plum Gelly

Hello everyone! I hope you are all having a good week. I am getting so behind with posts it’s unreal, lol. Barry M sent me a brand new Gelly addition to review (along with the new Summer Speedy Quick Dry Nail Paints) – yup, only one Summer Gelly this time! It’s a pretty one though 🙂

In case you have somehow missed the Gelly range (where have you been? Under a rock?! 😉 ) they are ‘gel-effect’ nail paints, which dry super glossy and to a gel-style finish.

Speckled Blue Gradient Nail Art

Hey everyone! I hope you’re having a great week. I’ve been having a bit of a weird one – my teeth have got SUPER sensitive and I basically can’t talk half the time because my mouth is in so much pain haha. But luckily no talking is required for blogging 😉

It’s been quite a while since I’ve layered glitter nail polish over a base colour, and this week I fancied doing something a little different with it. I’m pretty happy with how these came out, I haven’t done a gradient in a loooong time! They remind me of speckled eggs 🙂

Barry M Plumpy Gelly Topcoat

Hey everyone 🙂 a couple of weeks back I showed you the new Barry M Speedy Collection and the Spring 2015 Barry M Gelly additions – at the same time they released the new Gelly Hi-Shine “Plumpy” Topcoat, which I was also sent to review. I thought I’d try it out for a little while to give a proper overview on it, hence why this review is a little late! 🙂

As this is part of the Gelly range, it’s designed to have a ‘gel effect’ to look nice and glossy and slightly thick.

Valentines Inspired Nail Art with JustMyLook

Hello there! I really am spoiling you lot with blog posts this week aren’t I 😉 Haha. All of a sudden I’ve had a flurry of PR requests & samples, which is actually a good thing as it makes me more accountable and motivates me well so… we all benefit I think.

Anyway! I was kindly sent three nail polishes by JustMyLook, to create a Valentines Day Inspired nail design. As I’ve mentioned on here before, I’m not big on Valentines Day but I do enjoy a good seasonal manicure so here we are!

Barry M Gelly Collection Spring 2015 Swatches, Review & Comparisons

Hey there! So I promised (stupidly) to get this post up last night, but had an unexpected visit from my mum’s partner – which was lovely! – but I ran out of time to write this review unfortunately. So I hope you will accept my profuse apologies 🙂

Today I have the new Barry M Spring 2015 Gelly Nail Paint collection to show you (thanks to the PR team at Barry M for sending me these to review 🙂 ). I am loving that the Gelly line has taken off, so much so that we are still seeing releases nearly 3 years after the first Gellies came out. Happy happy. I loved them back then, and I am still loving them now! Barry M have brought out some lovely spring shades this time – only three, but all are great staple shades.

As always I have swatched a couple of similar-looking shades to compare with the colours, so that you can be sure you aren’t buying dupes!

As an aside – I muchly apologise for my fingers looking oily, I have been religiously applying cuticle oil the last few days, since I dried my skin out big time using soak-off gels. Sorry!
