Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint - Prickly Pear, photos, swatches

Earlier this week I showed you the wonderfully beautiful Blueberry from Barry M's Gelly Hi-Shine collection and today I'm back with the equally wonderfully beautiful but oddly named Prickly Pear.

Part of the gel-finish collection, Prickly Pear is a pale lilac shade that is perfect for Spring and yes, it's officially Spring as of today!  This shade had a thinner consistency than Blueberry, so you'd definitely need three coats for this one.

Again, it dries to a high gloss shine and is soft, season appropriate and just gorgeous.  Again, I applied a coat of Seche Vite half because I hate dents in my polish but also because I wasn't going to be able to photograph  my nails for a day after applying the polish.  But I assure you, my nails looked really glossy before any top coat.

For €5.99, you can't go wrong for a polish that makes it look like you've gel nails.  I've my eye on some of the brighter shades already!

I haven't been this excited by nail polish colours in ages, so well done Barry M for igniting the flame of love again!


  1. Will be hunting some of these polishes down!

  2. The color is so cool :) <3

  3. Looks but a bit dull, it should be great with a little dust on it.

  4. That's a lovely colour, I'm gonna have to pick up these ones now.

    They're adding a few new shades to this collection soon too; I've seen swatches of them online, the pastel green one has my name and address all over it!!

  5. that colour is amazing, I've been looking for a nice lavender-ish shade for ages!

  6. I love blue polish and my latest love is Barry M Gelly in Blue Plum (the name doesn't do a great job of describing it as it's a lovely dark denim blue - don't know what the plum refers to). I gives great cover with just one coat which suits my lazy nail polish routine perfectly.

  7. Karen thanks x MILLION for my bottle of blueberry that arrived today. I owe ya one lady xxx

  8. They have added to this collection new colors soon; samples I've seen them online, soft green with my name and address, it was all over it!
