Papaya // Barry M Cosmetics


I'm a huge fan of Barry M nail polish. It's cheap, fab quality and the variety you get is almost as good as Topshops. I have so many of their normal line polishes yet I had never gone over to the 'gelly' side until now. I was browsing Boots for some more Summer shades for my nails when I came across this beautiful coral polish called Papaya. It was just £3.99 so into the basket it went.

Apologies for the state of my nails but blistering medication all day has ruined them. I tend to paint my nails more because of this reason; plus who doesn't like looking down at brightly coloured nails to perk up a dreary morning? Papaya is a gorgeous, coral shade perfect for this time of year, sipping cocktails on a warm evening. It applies beautifully, evenly and I needed just two coats to get the colour in the above photo. After a quick spray of Elegent Touch Rapid Dry, I was good to go a minute later without any smudges. 
Why I haven't tried the Gelly Hi Shine range before, I'll never know but I'll be getting myself some more as soon as possible to add to my ever growing collection. 

What is your favourite Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine polish?

  1. Oh, this a gorgeous colour! I think I need to add it to my collection ...
    I recently bought their Matt polish in Copa Cabana
    It's such a summery colour, and if you add their all purpose topcoat it reverts it back to being glossy!
    Extra versatile :)

    1. I haven't tried their matte polish yet as I have a matte top coat so I just use that usually. Will have to have another look when I'm next in Boots xx

  5. Such a pretty colour. In my 'Things I loved in May' post (http://www.aimeedot.com/2014/06/things-i-loved-in-may.html) I mentioned the 'Blue Grape' Hi Shine Jelly Paint I got....I've not stopped wearing it since!!! They do some really great colours and I find they do last.

  8. I have this colour too and I have been wearing it so much lately. Their Gelly range is particularly good and I think they last much longer than more expensive polishes!

  9. I love this colour! Recently all I've been wearing on my nails have been Barry M Gelly polishes, for the price they're such good quality. My favourite at the moment has to be Blueberry x
