So, two years ago my work bestie went to Europe & the UK for vacation and the first thing I asked her when I found out about her trip was OHMYGOSH will you please bring me back a Barry M polish. Yes, nail polish brain in full effect. I absolutely have a thing for foreign nail polish (ahem Kiko & HEMA).
She brought back this gorgeous pink: Dragon fruit from the Gelly Hi Shine line. I tried it and loved it. Last week felt like spring so I decided to embrace it and rock some pink nails.
Dragon Fruit is a light girly girl pink. Good description right? This pretty pink takes two coats to get a nice finish. It has an ultra subtle silver shimmer that you can only see in direct sun. My only complaint is the wand to cap ratio – it’s not the most user friendly, but if that’s my only complaint… well, I’d say we’re in good shape.
Barry M is an affordable drugstore line in the UK. The Gelly Hi Shine polishes retail for £ 3.99. If you check Amazon, there are a few polishes in the $13 range, but I wouldn’t pay that much. Your best bet is to try eBay – the prices are more reasonable and most include free shipping. I have a polish crush on the Aquarium Effect polishes.
If you know of a US retailer with decent prices on Barry M products, let me know! Swatches below.
