Hooray for summer nails!
I popped into Superdrug this lunchtime and after seeing no hint of the new speedy shades on the shelves I edged towards an assistant to ask... Fortunately she was very kind and let me rummage around in the drawers to find what I wanted! Unfortuntately one of the collection was missing from their stock but to be honest Supersonic, a deep blue/purple shimmer, is not the most summery of colours so I'm not too upset... and I have ordered it online lol!
So let's get on with seeing what I DID get...
This is Speed Demon a very pretty baby pink with silvery scatter holo... But it did take four coats before it was opaque and I was happy to topcoat! Very sheer and rather streaky... But so preeeeetty!!!
Next up is Turbo Charged a beautiful coral shade with a more golden scatter holo shimmer to it. This was a three coat job before topcoat as again it was quite sheer, not so streaky though.
Oooh number three is Need For Speed a lush, lush lilac creme. I used two coats and topcoat, the first will look quite sheer but the second transforms it! This is my new fave purple, it's the perfect shade.
Now for a super sunny shade On Your Marks a pastel neon, yellow creme. I used three coats with topcoat, some nails could have passed with two but others still looked patchy! Not too keen myself...
Last up is Get Set, Go a stunning raspberry pink creme that looks good enough to eat, LOVE it! This is two coats with topcoat but to be honest with you I probably could have got away with one!
I love Barry lol. These colours are just what I was needing in my collection this summer and bar the yellow I'm smitten with them all... Even though there are coverage issues with a couple of them, the fact that they really do dry in super quick time negates that for me. They also seem to hold up to wear and tear quite well with a supple, almost latex-like finish. Currently buy one get one half price in Superdrug if you fancy treating yourself over the weekend!
