*NEW* Barry M: Speedy Quick Dry Swatches & Review

Friday 27 February 2015

Happy Friday Folks!
Tonight I've got the new Barry M Speedy Collection to show you... I debated buying these for a week or so after seeing mixed reviews, but the fact is I am a complete Bazza hoarder and generally HAVE to buy the colours I like in any new collection hahaha! I now own near on 150 of the little beauts! This collection feature the cute chequered flag lids (which were screaming out to be incorporated into my swatches) and are supposed to be super quick drying and easy to apply with the new flat and wide brush as seen in the Plumpy Topcoat.

Lets take a closer look...


First up is Pit Stop a lovely soft grey, three coats with plumy topcoat.

 This is Lap Of Honour a dusky lilac, three coats with plumpy topcoat.

 Third up is Kiss Me Quick a light and bright pink, four coats with plumpy topcoat.

Last of all is Full Throttle a light and bright orange, four coats and Plumpy Topcoat.


Speedy or not so speedy, that is the question!... And the answer is sort of lol! 
Do they dry super fast? Yes. Do they need at least three, mostly four coats to not be all ugly and streaky? Yes. Is that speedy?? Well sort of, and they do have the easy application brush!... You see?! Hahaha.


I do adore the chequered flag lids and racey names, and I love most of the colours (the green and orange... meh!). I'm also a fan of the new brush, it's just perfect for my squoval nail shape!
Given that the Gelly's usually need two to three coats and take a wee while to dry, I reckon that three to four coats of these with their fast drying formula would be quicker... But it's hardly something to write home about let alone call 'Speedy'. Happy I bought them all the same and I managed to pick them up in the 2 for £7 on Bazza nails and lips deal in Superdrug which is a bonus!

I'll be back on Sunday with the first installment of my 'Behind The Blog' series.

Have a great weekend!
