Hello there!:) My name is Mollie and I have a blog called The Fashion Of Craft which I post at on Monday's and Friday's every week, sometimes Wednesday's too if you're lucky! Today I have written a guest post for the lovely Stacey which I am extremely excited about as I have been a major fangirl of Stacey's blog for months now; to get the opportunity to do this is unbelievable! This post is going to be a review of one of my favourite nail polishes at the moment, which is by the brand Barry M. If you would like to find out my opinion of this then you can carry on reading below!
The nail polish that I shall be today is the Hi Shine Nail Paint in the shade Prickly Pear. This colour is a pastel lilac shade that looks gorgeous on pale skin like mine, but I can see it looking amazing on darker skin tones too. This polish only cost me £3.99 and I think that the price is such good value for money when you consider the quality of it, which I have to say is great. If you're expecting an opaque in one coat type of product then this isn't for you because the first coat is pretty sheer however I find that once I have applied 2-3 coats, the product builds up nicely.
I have to say that I agree with the name of this product. Using a top coat over the top of this would be pointless because the nail polish itself gives off the same finish as applying a top coat in the first place. I find that the finish does last as long as the colour does too, as in the past I have had the problem with the sheen only lasting a day or two. For me, the product itself lasts on my nails for around 3 5 days before chipping which is amazing, especially because it doesn't state to be a long lasting product of ay sorts on the glass bottle.
Overall, I am definitely going to be purchasing more shades from the Gelly HiShine range, I just hope that the rest of them are as good as this one. I am thinking of purchasing some brighter shades next time as I only have two shades, which are both pastel. My only hope would be that they'd be a little more opaque because if not I can imagine them taking a while to build up.
Thank you if you took the time to read until the end of my guest post! If you liked this post then don't forget to check out my blog here, as there any many more posts like this one there!
