Barry M Gelly Pots in Lychee and Greenberry - Review

The Finished Product

I am still wearing my sexy Shellac mani by Perfect10 London, so I couldn't test these two seductive nail  pots on my own fingers. Luckily, I have some willing Guinea pigs, in the form of my two sisters, so I did a little tester mani on Grace (featured here in my Vampy make-up look).

The Tools

I started, as always by using a base coat. I'm heavily involved with O.P.I at the moment, and I used their matte Nail Envy polish as a protective base coat. I filed her nails into oval points, as she fancied something different doing to her (annoyingly) rapid-growing nails. I love this shape, it's like a less extreme Lana or Rihanna look, perfect for everyday style.

No Flash

After the base had dried I applied two coats of each colour, then an O.P.I topcoat, and finished with some of the O.P.I Drip Dry fluid.

Flash On

As you can see, both colours are super gorgeous, I love the nakedness of Lychee, it's subtle, classy and engaging. Greenberry is a lot more vibrant, and is perfect for Spring/Summer to liven up a simple look or to clash brilliantly with a fluro jumper! I love the finish of these polishes, for only £3.99 a pop, they are exceptionally easy to apply and look so professional, you can't really go wrong!

I can't wait until I can try these on my own hands, but until then, let me know what you think! Do you like the BarryM Hi-Shine Gelly Pots? Which is your favourite colour?
