Barry M Summer 2019 Gelly Polishes

June 03, 2019

I was so excited to buy these four new shades in Barry M's Gelly range. I love Barry M Gelly polishes and I knew as soon as I saw swatches of these on Instagram that I needed them in my polish collection! These four polishes are bright and perfect for summer... I can already tell that I'm going to be using these A LOT over the next few months.

All of the swatches are two coats with no top coat (the designs have Barry M's Matte top coat).

First up is Banana Split. This is the polish I was most looking forward to getting out of the four — and it did not disappoint! I love the colour yellow and Barry M doesn't release yellow polishes that often so I was super happy there was a yellow in this release. This is a really great yellow polish — a lot of yellow shades can be quite sheer/streaky, but this isn't at all — it's lovely to apply and only needed two coats.

Second is Pink Grapefruit. I didn't initially think I'd like this polish as much as I do — pinks are sometimes a hit or miss thing for me — but I actually really love this shade. It's a really pretty coral pink shade, perfect for summer.

Next is Tangerine. After using this polish I've decided I don't wear orange polishes enough — I neglect the colour orange! This shade is super bright and vibrant and is absolutely perfect for summer (will also be great when it comes time for Halloween too).

Lastly is Blueberry Muffin. What can I say? Other than, I LOVE teal polishes! I don't recall ever having met a teal polish I didn't want to be friends with... And this polish is no different. It photographs very blue, though IRL it does lean towards being a teal shade — my camera did NOT like capturing this shade. Perfect for a mermaid/beach mani this summer.

I also tested each of these polishes to see how well they work for stamping, I stamped a design over a white base and all four of them worked great!

You can buy these polish for £3.99 each from Superdrug or Barry M.
