Barry M Gelly High Shine nail paint 537 Black Carrant, review

Hello my lovely readers today’s post is about a nail polish I really enjoy wearing in the cold seasons (very suitable for Halloween too), a beautiful, dark berry shade the Barry M Gelly Hi Shine nail paint 537 Black Carrant. It is a fun and sexy shade I really like wearing and it makes me feel confident and sensual.


This nail polish is part of the Hi Shine Gel effect Nail Paint that provides an extra glossy finish.  The nail polish gives a professional, high shine, intense pigment finish and durability thanks to the thicker polish chip-resistant formula. Great promises, don’t you think ?



Instructions for use : Shake the bottle well. Apply a basecoat and then apply one or two coats of the Gelly nail paint and allow to dry. Once dry apply topcoat.

I applied it over the Farmec treatment polish I used as a base, then topped it off with the Milani Glosse Top Coat. It dries very fast in one minute or so for the first layer, I added another layer to get the color shade I wanted.

I paired it with the very useful Melkior Nail Laquer Correction Pen (perfect for the clumsy polish users like me, who always dirty the nails with the nail polish). I adore it, I can easily clean the nail polish around the nail to make it look perfect.

I love the fact that it dried quickly compared with other nail polishes, and it stayed on for quite long (4-5 days) and had minimal chipping at the top of the nails. I also love the color and how it looks on my nails.
