Today I’m here to show you my first Barry M nail polish. When I was in London, the only nail polishes on my mind were the Essie ones, but when I saw the Barry M stand, I couldn’t resist getting a couple of their gellys as well. Prickly Pear is the first shade that caught my attention. I have to admit, I do have a soft spot for pastel nail polishes. Especially for the turqoise and lilac ones.
I already know that Prickly Pear will be my go-to spring shade. Apart from the colour being totally gorgeous, it is also very glossy or gel-like, just like the bottle says. There is definitely no need to apply a top coat to make them look shinier, but I still use it for the sake of proloning the wear and making the polish dry quicker. To get the Prickly Pear opaque, I applied two coats. The application was great and not streaky at all, which doesn’t often happen with pastel nail polishes, so I’m very impressed. The only thing I don’t like is the wand. I prefer them big (no sexual connotation intended), but the Barry M ones are unfortunately quite tiny.
