Barry M Gelly, Spring Nails.

I don't tend to bother with my nails to much,
It bores me waiting for them to dry and I don't want to bring attention to my stubby fingers!
But with these beautiful shades I couldn't really resist.
But just to say here, I'm terrible at it.
So i'm more reviewing the product rather than how neat my nails look ;)!

Any nail painting tips would be appreciated below!

They're £3.99 each and 3 for 2 at Boots stores at the minute,
Which is a bit of a steal!

I use Barry M a lot as I feel its good value for money.

These are the three shades I chose:

 Papaya (GNP 13)
Prickly Pear (GNP 6)
Green Berry (GNP 12)

I really was really torn on getting blueberry, so that's on my want list!

I was really impressed with the coverage,
If you're in a hurry you could get away with putting on only one heavy coat for the Green Berry And Prickly pair. Papaya is a little weaker and definitely needs two coats.
Strange how a colour can make a whole brand seem different, don't you think?

I paint my nails really messily and then tidied them up with a cotton bud dipped into nail varnish remover.
Its a pet hate of mine when people leave a tiny bit unpainted at the edges!
If you do a little gentle washing up or having a shower, that can remove the access to.

They're much brighter and a little less pastel that I had thought!

(messy nails)
The Green is much less blue than is this picture.

It took ageeeeees to dry! (about 20 minutes).
I ran it under the cold tap and this helped move things along!
But by which point I was a little bored so ignore the smudges haha!

So let me know what you guys think of the shades,
I'm quite in love with them!

"Maybe I just need a change,
Maybe I just need a new cologne"
