.It’s Barry Summer Gelly Time | Barry M Summer Releases.
We’re halfway through our holiday now and loving every single minute of it. It’s so nice to get away, relax and spend time together with lots of yummy food and a bar stocked full of drinks we don’t have to pay for in our beautiful surroundings! Today’s installment of the Holiday Blog Series comes from one of my favourite nail polish makers Mr Barry M and his new Sumer Gelly shades…
I absolutely adore the formula of the Barry M Gelly polishes, so when any new releases drop through my letterbox I get quite excited and this time is no exception! Barry has outdone himself this season with a plethora of colours both bright and more subdued to entice every polish wearer over to the gel side. Alongside the recent Spring Pastel releases we’ve got everything we could possibly want from a collection to keep our pointers polished all through the warmer seasons with bright primary colours and lighter pastels to really make a tan pop!
.In this collection.
Pink Punch* – Similar to another Barry M polish I already own, Pink Punch comes in a touch brighter and is fantastic for tanned skin with it’s gorgeously strong Barbie colouring.
Damson Blue* - I have to be in the mood for royal blue polishes but this one is quite nice. A little lighter than Barry M’s previous Blue Grape shade but Darker than Elderberry below, these would would make a lovely blue coloured ombre look sponged together!
Kiwi Green* - I’m not a huge fan of this one as i only usually reach for green polishes that fall into the mint category but i think it’s a beautiful colour for blondes or for nail art patterns - maybe a funky tribal print!
Coconut White* - My favourite of the bunch has to be Coconut with it’s soft and milky white finish. I’ve been looking for a softer white polish for so long so this one has really filled a gap in my nail box! Love love love this shade and it’s perfect for the sunnier weather.
Olive Green* - Another favourite from this collection is Olive, and perfectly soft, almost pastel olive shade that compliments both pale and tanned hands. I love it on it’s own, i love it as an accent, i just adore this polish and i don’t own anything like it either so it’s a real winner for me.
Almond Neutral* - This is also a stunning little shade - a pinky grey toned neutral right up my street. Once again i’ve been reaching for this polish again and again, it’s beautiful especially with a gold glitter accent to match!
Elderberry Blue* - The lighter of the two blues and just falling into my acceptable blue hue for polish! I actually really love this shade and it looks stunning on it’s own. It’s light and soft enough not to clash with different outfits and i think it’s a great one for the summer.
Personally I prefer the softer colours from this collection as some of the brights are similar to colours I already own and are a little more difficult to wear. I just can’t get enough of Coconut, Olive and Almond which I think complement each other perfectly and look amazing on pale or tanned skintones. Another fantastic collection from Mr M with my favourite fomula to boot – if you haven’t tried any of the Gellys yet you’re seriously missing out, start with some summer shades and get painting!
You can find all the new colours on the Barry M website HERE and also in your local Boots and Superdrug store.
