Barry M Gelly Nail Paints

I talk about nail polish a lot on here, especially the Barry M ones - so today I thought I'd show my pick of their popular Gelly Nail Paints. I own a lot of these now as they're really affordable and come in a huge selection of colours, but these few are my favourites for sure.

Of course, you all know that I love my blues. I definitely prefer bright colours on my nails to neutrals - I'm not sure why, I think they just suit me more. I absolutely adore the colour Damson (middle in the bottom photo) - it's a bright medium blue and is so flattering on the nails, plus it's always one that I get compliments on. I also really like Guava (bottom left), which is more on the turquoise/greeny side. And similarly, Kiwi is another favourite of mine (bottom right) - I find that this a such a unique colour and when I'm wearing it I can't help but look at my nails.

I also adore the shade Pomegranate (top right). This is a really different one for me but I've really loved wearing it throughout the summer. I would probably describe it as a dark pink/fuchsia, and it looks amazing with a tan. Lastly is Coconut, a pretty cream shade. This, again, is such a different colour choice for me - but one that I completely love. I'm wearing it in the top picture, and I think it looks great! It's one of the only nudes that I think I can actually get away with without looking super pale - so it definitely gets a thumbs up from me!

Overall, these nail polishes are great value for money. I actually like the brush despite it being quite thin, and the end result is really glossy too. I always apply a top coat anyway, but you don't really need it with these as they generally last about five days on me at least.

What's your favourite nail polish from Barry M? What do you think of the Gelly range?


  1. Love all these shades! xx

  2. These are one of my favourite nail polish brands, especially the gelly hi shine range! I really like my lilac one and the pastel ones are lovely too. I need to pick up coconut next, it looks like a really wearable pale shade.


  3. I love all of the gelly polishes, especially Lychee and Greenberry :)
