Barry M Gelly Nail Effects in Plum – Swatches and Review

Hi readers!

Back in August I learned from ♡Shopping Obsession that in Canada we can purchase Barry M polishes from FTB Beauty (based in Toronto) and during August they had free shipping! So obviously I HAD to buy a couple! 🙂

The brush is the typical round brush and it works well.

The Gelly Nail Effects line is described as hi shine Gel effect Nail Paint provides an extra glossy finish.

The name of this polish is very fitting as the colour is a beautiful plum.

The formula on this polish was a bit on the thick side, kind of syrupy, but it still worked well. I used 2 coats plus a top coat. My second coat was a bit thicker and it bubbled, unfortunately, but the top coat took care of hiding that.

I do have to say that the polish was this shiny on its own though, so next time I’ll go thinner with my coats to avoid bubbles.

Isn’t this a gorgeous colour?!?

Once dry, this polish is a bit darker on the nails than it is in the bottle, but I really don’t mind because I love dark colours.

This was my first time trying Barry M and I’m in love!

These retails for $7.50 (CAD) at FTB Beauty.

Have you tried Barry M polishes?
