Barry M Hi Shine Gelly - Prickly Pear Review

Nails seem to be a key focus at the moment, with every possible trend appearing on the nails as well.

Barry M seem to be just nailing every trend at the moment, from top coats to textured as well as the high shine, gel look. I have about 5 of the colours from the High Shine range, some Winter colours and some Spring colours, but my favourite so far has been  Prickly Pear

Prickly Pear is a light lilac polish, leaning more blue then purpl. It was full coverage in one coat, but I did two out of habit. I loved that it literally gave my nails the perfect look, like I had smoothed a gel over the top first. 

I wore this one for 4 days before I changed it, but in that time there was no chipping, minimal tip wear and it was still shiny! 

For £3.99 this is an awesome polish, I have a few ideas for some nail art with it and I want all the colours now! 

Have you tried any of the High Shine polishes?  What's your favourite colour? xx


  1. Love love love this colour xx

  2. Love the shiny finish to it, xoxo.

  3. I have 2 of these and they're great! I got the blue one thinking it was this shade haha my bad...both are lovely though :)

  4. I can never make pastels or any lighter colours look so good on my nails.

    1. its all about finding the right tone for your skin - I find red/pink toned colours make me look like I have lobster hands! xx
