As most of you already know, I have always complained of nail polishes always chipping within the day or two and since I couldn't get my hands on a lovely powder blue shade from MUA I ventured into Boots which are still having the Buy one get one Half Price and decided to try one Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint by BarryM. Back Home I do own about 4-5 Nail Paints from BarryM but all seem to chip and be rather thick for my likings and tend to take ages ( i mean all day ) to dry and I always seem to smudge it before it has completely dried.
I spotted the Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint by BarryM in Blueberry £3.99 and picked it up immediately. I still can't believe how cheap the conversion rate is compared to Euros. Back home they go for €7-€8 which is quite alot of a nail polish.
When I applied the first coat I noticed the straight away the amazing consistency of the polish. I could of easily gotten away with just one coat but I tend to always apply two just for that extra "what you see in the bottle look". I applied this right before heading out the door to go to work and noticed within about 5-10 minutes it was completely dry with no smudges and this amazing shiny glossy finish. I just couldn't stop staring at my nails all morning they just looked gorgeous!
After Three Days, as you can see in the picture above, minor chipping has occured due to pealing potatoes. (ha ha) I have minor chipping just on 3 of my nails which is quite reasonable after 3 days mind you compared to usual for me.
Overall, I am very impressed with the quality and hi-shine as it states and I do think I will pop into Boots tomorrow and get some other shades to try out since they are still on offer.
