Fabulous Nails #28

I must confess that today's Fabulous Nails is quite festive (and I'm aware it's not Christmas!) but I love greens, reds and metallics throughout the winter so I don't really restrict festive nails to December anymore!

I used my Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine polish in Watermelon (2 coats - this is thick stuff!) as a base and my fabulous Revlon Gold Sequins that I got free in December when I bought my Mum 3 Revlon polishes (3 for the price of 2).

This is actually my first Revlon polish - when I used to work at Boots I lusted after them but every time I ended up buying a Barry M dupe instead as they're half the price. This is also the first Gelly Barry M I've tried and I really liked it - it goes on really opaque and thick. A word of caution though, the entire end of one of my nails chipped off (the polish not the nail itself) after a day, which I think is because of the thick consistency of the polish.

What do you think? Have you tried the Gelly Barry M polishes yet?


  1. I am very intrigued by the Gelly Barry M polishes. May have to make a purchase and give them a go.

  2. Pretty. I haven't tried the Gelly ones yet, I keep meaning to but I've heard they're a bit squishy and prone to getting indents - is that true? I'm not careful enough with my nails really xD

    1. I haven't had that experience tbh, I apply thin layers and top with Sally Hansen Insta Dri top coat - perfecto!

  3. wow love these nails! i actually have this barry m polish but i've not tried it yet! must make a mental note to test it out this week xxx
