Review: Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint in Watermelon

Both my sister and I are big nail varnish fans so when I got home from my holiday and heard her bragging about a gel-like nail varnish she had recently bought, I knew I had to get my hands on one of them too! She was talking about the Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paints so I immediately went out and bought one in the shade Watermelon.

Watermelon appears a mossy dark green in the bottle and on the nails but once photographed it looks like a navy but it is in fact green. I've never tried a gel nail varnish before but these Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paints are Shellac inspired. They aren't a gel base but they leave a high shine like a gel manicure without the expense and you can do it yourself from your own home however they won't last as long.

I didn't know what to expect when I applied this nail varnish but the formula seems much thicker and more opaque than a normal nail varnish. One coat was all I needed. The Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paints apply incredibly easy and like the title suggests, they leave a very high shine on the nails which looks lovely.

The only problem I had with these was how long they lasted. I applied the famous Seche Vite Top Coat after applying Watermelon and it chipped pretty much a few hours later which is a real shame as it looked so lovely.
