Well hellooo autumn! The season of cosy knits, fallen leaves and pumpkin lattes. Aaannd the new Barry M Gelly nail polish shades. Six new shades were launched: a grey, red with a brownish tone and a chocolate brown as well as the three I have above. I think this collection perfectly captures the autumn season, I’m so impressed.
This is ‘Cardamom’. It’s a muted, forest green and is just lovely. I don’t have anything like it in my collection (OK, maybe OPI’s ‘Mermaid’s Tear’ is the closest, but this is definitely darker).
Next up is ‘Paprika’. From other pictures I had thought that this would be more orange but it’s more of a orangey brown. I think that it’s surprisingly flattering on my skintone.
Lastly, my favourite of the bunch: ‘Mustard’. It’s a “what it says on the tin” kind of shade – straight up mustard. I’m so glad that they have finally done a yellow Gelly, more please, Barry!
The formula on all these is great. I did two thin coats as that’s my habit, but one thick coat would self level and be opaque. The finish is shiny as you would expect and lasts a good few days with a base coat. They are £3.99 each and on 3 for 2 in Superdrug now – go, go, go!
