Review: Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint by Barry M

Hey guys! today I am going to be reviewing the fairly new range of nail paints by Barry M. I do not own a lot of nail polishes by Barry M, the only one that I had before I bought two from this range was one from the magnetic range that came out months ago so when I heard that this new range was going to be a gel like formula I had to go out and get it, especially after I did some research on the product and found that they had so many different, unique colours that I didn't own already. I only have two, Prickly Pear and Blueberry those were the two that stuck out for me the most especially for the summer time.
Prickly Pear and Blueberry

Now on to the actual product, the formula of the nail paint is no different from any other nail polish in my opinion. However the nail polish does have a very shiny finish which is what gives it that gel nails type of look. It has amazing staying power compared to some of the other nail polishes that I own, lasts up 5 days without chipping with top and base coat. Some of my other nail polishes last up 2-3 days with top and base coat which is really disappointing.
Prickly Pear is the one that I am currently wearing and I have to say it is my favourite out of the two only because I feel like it goes better with my skin tone. My mum did think that I was a little strange for picking these two because she thought that they were very similar, I do see where she's coming from but on the nails they look completely different (the pics don't really do it any justice).
Overall I think this product is really good I think it is completely worth the price which is £3.99 and I would give it a 4/5 the only thing that stopping me from giving it a 5/5 is that I do wish the formula was a bit thicker, other than that I'm completely in love. I am definitely planning on getting some other colours that I've had my eye on such Lychee, Green Berry and Dragon Fruit.
I would love to know which ones are your favourites, if you own any or if you are planning on trying them out. Feel free to leave any comments!
Hope you enjoy the rest of your day! :-)
