Something odd has happened to me. I am potentially growing up. I know. But, recently (and slightly OT) my hair has been cut shorter, and got darker as I grew tired of long platinum-ish blonde hair, and my entire makeup tastes have changed to what could be classed as more sophisticated. In all of this, gone are my false nails for something I would never ever wear, my own nails painted pink. And I don't do pink nails.
Yet I have, and I am in love. So much so that I brought two pinks to fuel this latest passion, and of course they would be the Barry M Hi shine Gel effect Nail Paints (£3.99). Nothing for that price is as good as these Barry M ones, others do come close, Rimmel, Maybelline and Collection to name a few, but Barry M are the kings for a reason.
The two I opted for was firstly, Grapefruit, a bright vibrant pink. (You won't lose your fingers) Borderline neon pink, but not quite. Next was Dragonfruit, my favourite of the two. Slightly more subtle, not that would be hard, and stronger than a baby pink. Both of these of course have that famous Barry M Gelly texture and are thicker than most. Still, two coats is needed but I can skip the top coat, so my inner lazy nail painter in happy. Essie etc are still hold the trophy for better polishes, but these Barry M ones have given it a good shot, and they must be good, as I don't do pink nails.
