Blackcurrant and Copper Nails

Saturday, November 14, 2015

I've been loving Barry M lately, and I especially have since they released some super dark vampy shades in there Gelly Hi-Shine range! The shade I decided to buy was called Blackcurrant and is a very dark plum colour. Its so gorgeous especially for throughout the Winter months. The three other shades in the collection are a dark red, dark blue and dark green. My only issue with these new polishes is the formula, I have been buying from the Gelly Hi-Shine range ever since it was released and its always been a thick formula which hardens and stays put for days on end. However with these new shades the formula has definitely been changed, its a lot thinner and to be honest not nearly as good! These nails lasted 2 days before 3 of them had chipped and 1 was peeling off completely! Its a shame because the shades are gorgeous!

Nonetheless I paired this polish with a Barry M glitter, a stunning bronze and gold glitter called 'Copper', perfect for Christmas! Ever since the start of November I've been dying to wear glitter polishes and this one is definitely going to be a firm favourite this Winter I think!

What glitter polishes have you been loving?

  23. What a gorgeous combo, wow. That's unfortunate that the new formulas chip after a couple days but maybe some awesome base and top coats could help? Beautiful! Xx
