Barry M Prickly Pear

Barry M Prickly Pear
Barry M Gelly Hi Shine - Prickly Pear £3.99
Cruelty Free
I just love purple and I am tempted to get my hair once again, so when I seen Prickly Pear from Barry M in Superdrug in Silverburn I couldn't resist and buy it as its the most perfect lilac nail polish I have ever seen and I have seen quite a few. The weather at the moment may not be the most summery ever but this nail polish is just right for the spring and summer months.
Barry M Prickly Pear Review
This nail polish from Barry M is called 'Prickly Pear' and its from the gelly hi shine range. I am not sure the name matches the nail polish itself as prickly pears look nothing like this but saying that I do love the name itself as its quite quirky and for me personally nail polish names make a difference sometimes when I buy a new nail polish. Prickly Pear is a light purple shade just like a pastel lilac shade and reminds me a lot of parma violets. The formula is very thick and it took a few minutes for my nails to be dry enough to apply a second coat and then a third as two coats looked a little bit too thin and not opaque enough for me.
Application for this can be a bit on the tricky side as the formulation is very thick and making sure you get the right amount on the brush is very important to make sure you don't put to much on nail as I learned on one of my nails that I did re start it to make it perfect. Once all the coats were on I waited 10 minutes for my nails to dry and after that time they looked amazing! I really love the results of prickly pear as it looks so shiny and glossy for me its just salon quality you can get at home and for a fraction of the price.
What do you think of the Barry M Gelly Hi Shine range?
