Hola Chicas! How have your weekends been? I'm currently enjoying a lazy Sunday evening curled up on the sofa with a blanket and X Factor...what more could you want?!
Anyway, as I was perusing my local Boots the other day (a past time I very much enjoy!) I noticed these little beauties on the Barry M display! I hadn't heard anything in the YouTube and blogging world so was surprised to see them! I decided to pick up two shades - Watermelon (a deep turquoise) and Pomegranate (a dark fuchsia). I had a hard time picking between the lovely autumnal colours available.
I had high hopes for these polishes. I imagined them to be a gel like consistency as you'd expect from the name. I was hoping for something that would kind of give similar effects of a shellac manicure but for a fraction of the price (these polishes retail at (£3.99 each). However, I must say I'm disappointed. I honestly can't tell the difference between these Gelly polishes and the regular Barry M Nail Paints which are £1 cheaper! Don't get me wrong, as nail polish goes these are lovely - easy to work with, opaque in two coats, reasonably priced, colour in the bottle is what you'll get on your nails. BUT, why are they a quid more expensive and why do they have a different fancy name? As far as I can see there's no 'gelly-ness' about them and the effect is no more shiny than other polishes!
I must say, Pomegranate impressed me more than Watermelon did in terms of longevity and shine but neither were what I was hoping for.
Have any of you tried these nail paints? What did you think?
