My new purchase! Barry M Hi-shine review!


I came across these Barry M Hi-shine nail paints when I was browsing the internet for some cool new nail paints, I wanted some summer colours as I haven't got any, to be fair I started to think that my current nails polishes weren't exactly what I would call summery!! I am a big fan of Barry M nail paints especially the Hi-shine ones because of their colour range and they are so easy to apply, they also last for ages without chipping which is a bonus! seeing as I have a five month old baby boy who loves playing toys with his mummy :). Whilst I was scrolling through the variety of colours I came across three very pretty colours and thought that they would be a  great addition to my nail polish collection. They were very cheap, you can pick them up from boots and Superdrug for £3.99. I ordered my nail paints from Superdrug because they was doing a three for two offer and thought that it was a bargain!!:). The colours I brought were prickly pear, grapefruit and plum. I will give each nail paint individual reviews and also tell you what I think of them as a whole.

                                                     Prickly Pear


This is the Barry M Hi-shine Prickly Pear nail paint and I Love it! The colour is a light purple/lilac with a really nice shine to it when it it applied. I found that applying three to four coats was the right amount to achieve the Prickly Pear colour! I found with other brands that no matter how many coats you apply you just could not get the colour how it appears in the bottle. What I also loved about the nail paint is that it gave a smooth finish without it being streaky or dull. Compared to the other nail varnishes I have used this one tends to not chip as quick and some of the other  brands and the drying time for this nail paint is fairy quick!. For this review I would give a massive thumbs up for the colour and how the nail paint applies! 


                                                        Grapefruit

This is the Barry M Hi-shine grapefruit nail paint. The colour is a pinky peach colour, you only have to apply two coats to achieve the same colour as the bottle! I found that when I applied the nail paint onto my finger nails it gave a nice shiny coat but when applied to my toe nails for some reason I found that the nail paint went streaky and gloopy on the nail! I decided to give the bottle a good shake in case the first time I shook it the paint still sat at the bottom. I tried to re apply the nail paint again but once again it still seemed to be comming out streaky. I do not know if anyone else had this problem but I would love to hear if you experienced the same thing? I personally do not think I would buy the Barry M Hi-shine in the colour grapefruit but I would definitely be searching for this colour or something similar in the Barry M range because the colour its self is a very bright  pretty colour. So if using this nail paint on your finger nails I would give it a massive thumbs up but on your toe nails I would be swayed to look else where. 

                                                                        Plum


Now this colour I know is not a bright summery colour but my partner loves the colour purple so I thought I would get this for him to appreciate ;) This is the Barry M Hi-shine nail paint in the colour plum. I was a bit hesitant about this purchase because I do not tend to buy really dark colours because I find it hard to achieve a nice neat coverage and find that you have to apply a thicker coat to the nail giving you less control, resulting in very numb fingers due to much longer drying time :(  BUT I found this was not the case with Barry M plum colour. I also find that most but not all dark colours tend just to look like a different shade of black but with the Barry M plum colour you can tell that the colour on your nails is a dark purple rather than a black. This again leaves a very shiny finish to your nail which is nice to buy a product that actually does what it says it does! I would recommend this colour in the Barry M Hi-shine range. 

I hope you found this review helpful and enjoyable thanks for taking your time to read it,
I will now leave you with images of all three nail paints painted on my nails so you can see the colours once it is applied to the nails.
