SEVENTEEN Gel Colour Summer 2015 – Swatches & Review

Hi everyone! Hope you’re having a good week 🙂  I’m still catching up on my ‘to blog’ pile, which includes four lovely SEVENTEEN Gel Colour nail polishes I was sent a little while back to review. SEVENTEEN have just brought out 15 new colours in their Gel Colour range this Spring/Summer. These are gel effect nail polishes, and they claim to last for up to 8 days.

I haven’t tried any of the SEVENTEEN Gel Colour polishes since last year so I’d forgotten how nice they actually are, so I was pleased to be able to try these again 🙂

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.

Barry M Gelly Summer 2014 Collection Review, Swatches & Comparisons

Hello everyone! I am beyond excited to be bringing you this post today… it’s taken a LOT of prep so I hope you enjoy it :D. Barry M are releasing a brand new Summer 2014 collection of their Gelly Hi-Shine range, which consists of 7 new shades. If you haven’t heard of the Barry M Gelly Nail Paints yet, they are a gel-effect polish which have in general had great formulas and longevity from past collections. I am a massive fan of the Gelly range myself – being the slight addict that I am I have them all…!

As a pre-warning, this post will definitely be a long one as I’ve done some comparisons too, by popular request, so make sure you grab a cuppa!! 🙂

This new line-up is an interesting one – it feels half summery, and the other half are kind of all-year-round polishes. They don’t seem to really ‘go together’ as a collection but I am all for interesting colours! I am well-known for wearing my neons in the middle of the Christmas seasons so I’ll say no more! 😀

Barry M Rose Hip Gelly

Hey ladies! I have a really pretty pink to show you today (I told you I was going to give pink some more lovin’!) in the form of a new Gelly polish 🙂 As you probably know if you’ve been reading my blog for a while, I absolutely adore the Barry M Gelly range 🙂

I often find that pale pastel pinks can look chalky and clashy against my skin and this is the first one I’ve tried that doesn’t look terrible on me! It has a nice jellyish finish which I think really helps it to look flattering 🙂

Barry M Papaya Gelly

Hey everyone!! 🙂 Today have a really springy polish to show you. When I first got this, I wasn’t very keen – I was dead set in my mind that oranges weren’t for me. But I pulled this out the other day, and thought actually, I really love this! I’ve found a few of my tastes in nail polish have changed over the years, for example I used to adore a nice shimmery dark blue, but I think I went overboard with them and now I’m not keen at all! And pinks have definitely taken a back seat, where I used to love them. Mint greens I used to think would look terrible on me but now I love them! What colours for you have changed in your estimations?

Papaya was released around about this time last year, as part of the Spring Gelly collection along with Dragon Fruit, Green Berry and Lychee. I’m dying to get my hands on the 2014 Spring Gellys but I do still think that the 2013 collection held four perfect Spring staples.
