Barry M are gearing up for a pastel spring with their new Speedy Quick Dry Nail Paints. The collection offers nine soft shades with a fast drying formula and a new, wide brush. They are priced at £3.99 each and currently available in Superdug at two for £7.
Left to right: “Pole Position” (mint green); “In a Heart Beat” (coral pink); “Road Rage” (pale blue/green); “Full Throttle” (creamy orange).
The names and lids are obviously inspired by racing and make a nice point of difference to their other collections. As well as the colours above there is a pale pink, a lilac, a greige, pale yellow, and a sky blue so they have created a capsule collection with all the colours you’ll need for spring.
These apply best with several thin coats. The green and the blue definitely need three to even out streaks but the stronger hued coral was fine with just two. And thankfully, they do live up to their quick-drying promise. I found them to be touch dry within minutes and fully dry within 15. Again, this was with thin layers that dried between coats.
The new flat brush is a great addition too. It’s wider but not too wide (I have tiny pinky nails!) with a curved tip so allows for a neat, even application.
Overall, I’d say this collection is a winner. Good formula, great colours. I hope that they will continue to add to the collection seasonally as they have with the Gelly range, and introduce the new shape of brush throughout.
What do you think of these new colours? Are they making you feel like Spring has sprung?
