l-r: Gelly Nail Paint in Grapefruit, Nail Paint in Block Orange, Gelly Nail Paint in Passion Fruit, Gelly Nail Paint in Green Berry, Gelly Nail Paint in Prickly Pear, Matte Nail Paint in Vanilla & Gelly Nail Paint in Rose Hip.

Hey!  This was going to be a general nail polish post, but as I was taking the photos I realised that most of the shades I had picked were by Barry here we are with a dedicated post!  It makes sense to me, as Barry M is most definitely my favourite brand for nail polishes and you really cannot go wrong with the amazing range of colours and effects that they have.  I have picked a handful of colours that I will be reaching for this summer; the theme is clearly light and bright, and I've thrown in a couple of softer shades that will look good with a tan (a fake one for me!).  

Grapefruit is probably my most love out of the bunch, it is already half empty.  It is a bright bright almost neon pink shade that is just so summery and girly.  If you like a good pink like me, then this is the perfect shade.  

Block Orange is from the original Nail Paint range and I generally save this colour for my toes.  It is a juicy orange shade, as the name suggests, and two coats is enough to give a decent block colour that  lasts a good few days without chipping in my experience.  

Passion Fruit is a gorgeous orange/red.  It has a real tropical feel to it and is great if you love reds but want something a bit more summery without any blue tones.

Green Berry is a bold minty colour, I love anything in this shade lately and it just seems to go with anything.

Prickly Pear is a lavender shade that is not quite as full on as the other colours but still looks lovely worn at this time of the year. 

Vanilla is a Matte Paint and is the only one I own from that particular range.  I love the effect of this it's different, has great pigmentation and looks great if you happen to have a tan! 

Rose Hip is my most recent nail purchase, it is a really soft pink that's almost white, but with just enough colour in it to make it prettier and also warmer.  I am really loving this shade right now, it's another one that will make a tan pop! 

What shades are you loving for summer?  Do you have any of these ones? xx


  1. So jealous of your collection! I've somehow lost all my Gellys, I really want that hot pink one x

  2. Barry M are my favourite nail polish brand too! Can never go wrong with them :) I adore their classic red, Gelly Lychee and the Rose Hip one, great all rounders xx

  3. They're all gorgeous to be honest but I'm loving shades like Prickly Pear at the moment.

  4. I'm LOVING the gelly range, can't stop wearing green berry! Just waiting for that summer tan (I hope...) to go with it!
