Barry M Sunset Daylight Curing Nail Paints in 'Do It Like A Nude' & 'I've Benn Pinkin', & Topcoat: £4.99 each
Being a major Barry M fangirl, I was all over their latest release! The Sunset Daylight Curing Nail Paints are Barry M's answer to at-home affordable gel look nails. The colours go on in a couple of coats and the thicker, clear topcoat goes on once it's dry to create a professional finish with high shine and the look of gels.
I have had gels done a couple of times in the past, but I end up always going back to doing my own nails because it saves so much money, and you can change them whenever you like. However, you cannot beat the high quality finish you get when your nails are done professionally, so anything that claims to give a result just like it is going to be right up my street.
The range of shades is fairly small at the moment, but I'm sure Barry M will add to them at some point if they prove popular. I got the shades Do It Like A Nude and I've Been Pinkin', the first is a light creamy nude shade which I love and have been wearing to work, and the other is a bright warm pink which is perfect for summer and looks gorgeous with the high shine.
These polishes are as always easy to apply; the brushes are flat and one sweep easily covers my nails. The formula is really good quality and the topcoat really does add a high shine and acts as a chip resistant barrier. I get a good 3 to 4 days wear out of these polishes before they start to chip, but bearing in mind that I work at a computer all day so it might not be the biggest test for them!
On the whole I really like this idea, and I will definitely be adding the rest of the shades to my collection! Have you tried these yet? What do you think of them? xx
