3 FOR 2 | FAVOURITE SUMMER BARRY M GELLY HI-SHINE NAIL PAINTS

Go-to Summer Nail Shades: Barry M Gelly Nail Paints Prickly Pear or Lilac, Peanut Butter, Acai Smoothie
I have been lacking in motivation lately and I am not sure why. Fortunately, I have been catching up on some sleep which is fantastic but is only making me feel more tired. In spite of not being in the mood, it was my desire to still post something. These 3 nail polishes are my current favourite shades from Barry M's Gelly Nail Paint line. I love the glossy gel-like finish and the opacity of the colours. They have also changed their brush so it is wider and shaped more like a fan which makes application much easier and smoother. This is going to be a very rare, short post from me. If you want to learn more about the colours and why I like them, please keep reading. We are going from left to right:

Prickly Pear/Lilac: My all-time favourite, forever repurchase shade from Barry M. The shade name makes no sense at all as instead of being a light green (like a pear) it is a stunning bright lilac shade. That looks amazing all year round in my opinion but especially in the summer. Whenever I am not sure what to wear on my nails, and I am not feeling a neutral, I grab this one. Not sure what it is, maybe it has magical powers but this colour genuinely influences my mood and makes me a  nicer person.

Peanut Butter: Another odd shade name because this isn't the colour of peanut butter at all, more like burnt, faded orange. I love this shade as it is not too loud or ostentatious. Suits my skin colour and is a low key colour that can be worn with pretty much anything.

Acai Smoothie: So happy I found this colour, I have Dragon Fruit by Barry M but it is such a bright, flaming flamingo colour that I would have to be partying in Rio to feel comfortable wearing it. This is a stunning, more wearable yet still pink and quite girly option that literally looks like the colour of a berry smoothie. Delicious.

  1. Oh I really need to get back into painting my nails more regularly, especially this time of year, there's nothing better than looking down at your fingernails and just admiring how pretty they look! These shades are my favourite kind to wear too, Barry M always seem to have the greatest selection of colours when it comes to nails, I must get my hands on peanut butter! Lovely post, I totally feel you on the lacking motivation front, but this was still a really great read & gorgeous image :-)

  2. I don't think it's necessary to write super long post every time. Sometimes quick, short, but informative is also good. Anyway, the peanut butter shade is amazing.

  3. The only thing I don't like about Barry M nail polishes is the thin brush! xx

  4. I wear a lot of pale green on my nails at the moment, a color that I never enjoyed before. Tastes change, I guess.
    Regarding blog posts, I don´t think I can request something. I like to read different stuff, and most of the time I enjoy the posts that people got excited about no matter the topic.

    1. I love Elderberry by Barry M, but other than that I really don't own many pale green colours. I should add it to my collection and that's okay xxx

  5. These are such nice colours! :)

    Sorry to hear you've been unmotivated with blogging though! I hope you can get your blogging spark back again soon. I think if you write the kind of posts you like to read, then you'll always have ideas for blog posts, so maybe give that a go?

    Hope you are having a better week! I just published my first eBook so I'm having a pretty good week! :)

  6. Seems like a lot of bloggers are lacking in motivation recently, it must be something in the air. That said, there's nothing boring with a short post, Kiran, a lot of times I love short and straight to the point posts. xx

  7. These look really nice. Currently I'm doing a 2 week nighttime nail detox mask so I can't paint my nails. I'll have to try these when I'm done.

  12. I usually wear black, grey, red or nude nail polishes, the one in the middle is gorgeous, but at the moment I am wearing the brightest of yellow colors, I don't know why, I just felt like it. Don't worry much! Short posts can be sweet as well, I hope you feel better, take the time you need to pamper yourself c: we don't judge, haha. You can do short posts about the nail polishes you wear, something like a Nails Of The Day kind of thing, I'm planning on maybe doing them too :)

  13. All are so pretty and peanut butter is my favorite! I'm partial to both the name and color. Everyone gets like that. Don't feel bad. Sometimes you have to take short breaks. Anything beauty related is always awesome in my book. Reviews are so helpful.
