*NEW* Barry M: Autumn/Winter Gelly's

Friday, 25 September 2015

Peekaboo lovely folks!
You may have been thinking that I had dropped off the face of the earth again here on the blog but if you follow me on social media you'll probably have seen that I landed myself in the hospital after a routine cardiology appointment last week! I'm back at home with some medication now and have an operation booked for a few weeks time but I'll fill you in on all of that in another post, for now it's my Barry M retail therapy I want to share...

...It's a veritable Autumnal feast for the eyes!

This is Sparkling Ruby a stunningly rich yet bright red which shimmers with light red, orange and gold tones. Reminds me of Dorothy's ruby slippers in the Wizard of Oz! I used two coats with a topcoat.

Next up is the second of the two glittery gellys Sparkling Amethyst, the most beautiful purple polish I have come across in some time! This deep purple shimmers with pink, magenta and gold with the occasional hint of blue. LOVE! Two coats with topcoat.

Now for the first of the midnight gellys Black Cherry, it's a deep burgundy red very much like a red wine. A classic. Two coats with topcoat here too.

Here we have Black Currant the deepest of dark purples, so much so it could pass for black at a glance but it's very definitely purple when the light catches it. Two coats with topcoat.

Time for a new colour palette now with this deeeeeeeeep bluuuuuuuue Black Grape. It's a real inky colour but wasn't a stainer and I just love it! Again, two coats with topcoat.

Last and quite frankly least is Black Pistachio which is a dark, dark foresty green. Like British racing green... In the dark haha! I amosy didn't buy it but felt bad leaving it behind when I took all the others from the shelf, and I love pistachios. Final two coats with topcoat.

I picked these up in Superdrug this morning when I had to fill a prescription, it may have been why I chose to fill it in that particular pharmacy but ya know, once a polish addict always a polish addict! The two sparklies are Limited Edition Exclusives to Superdrug and you can nab a free mascara for a £7 Bazza spend too.

The formulas were great across the board here and the wide brushes were also present. I can't remember if that was the case in the Spring/Summer Gelly's now?! The midnight quartet were sheer and quite brightly coloured on the first coat (applied much like the OPI sheer tints or similar) but they were a little streaky to not go with the second coat which transformed them into dark, vampy and I guess 'midnight' tones. The glittery numbers are to die for, they play with the light in ways which remind me why I love polish soooo much! An evening well spent :)

  2. Oh dear! I just bought the whole OPI Color Paints collection when I shouldn't have and then these come along. I need to keep a look-out for a 3 for 2 and my Clubcard vouchers. Fingers crossed for your operation btw.
