As Spring is now officially here it's time to switch things up in our wardrobes, makeup bags and our nail polish stash, say goodbye to all the dark dreary colours and hellloooo to all the pretty pastel shades he he. Anyway today I thought I'd share with you a nail polish that I've been obsessed with recently that I think is perfect for Spring - Barry M's Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint in Prickly Pear!
Prickly Pear (£3.99) is a gorgeous blue toned lavender/lilac shade with a slight pastel vibe that just screams Spring to me, I get a complete opaque coverage after just two coats without any streaking or bubbling and found the Gelly Hi Shine formula a dream to work with, the finish is so shiny and glossy and really gives that effect of gel like manicured nails which I love. The staying power on my nails is quite good, I never used a top coat and Prickly Pear was on my nails a good 3-4 days until I got some noticeable chipping, which I think is rather good going considering how heavy I am with my hands at work and at home doing housework and washing up!
Overall I absolutely love this shade and can see it being a staple in my nail polish collection this Spring, I just love how hard wearing it is on me and the overall glossy effect I really rate, I literally cant get enough of it!
Have you tried Prickly Pear before beaut's? What did you think? I'd love to know!
