Barry M Sugar Plum* (Gelly) Review, Swatches and Nail Art!

So if you follow me over on instagram, you'd know that I received some lovely summer releases from Barry M and so here's the first review for you guys and its of the newest addition to the Gelly family, Sugar Plum.  A sweet pinky purple shade which isn't too dissimilar to Radiant Orchid (Colour of the Year last year and current colour du jour of nail polishes), Sugar Plum is one of those shades you that looks even better on the nails than in the bottle.  Now, enough of my blabbering and onto the swatch, review and nail art!

This is two coats of the polish with no top coat,  I mean, I think we all know the Gelly formulation well to say that this shade is pretty consistent with the rest of the collection.  Shiny with really good pigmentation, Sugar Plum is one of those shades which I think will suit a lot of skin types.

And here's some nail art from you!  Here's a sneaky peek at what you could attempt from The Illustrated Nail's new nail art book, Nail It!  This is the ditsy print.  I used my usual detailing brush (which really needs replacing) and dotting tool.  It's a pretty straightforward design but can be a bit time consuming.  Would you guys like a review of the book?  You'll probably get one even if you didn't LOL

All in all I wish there were more additions to the Gelly collection this summer but with the new Speedy shades to swatch and review, I'll have plenty of summer brights to show you guys.  Sugar Plum is £3.99 and is available from Barry M, Superdrug and Boots NOW!

  2. They really are a cracking collection of polishes (and thanks for the comment ;-p)

  3. Beautiful nail art - I don't know how you do it!
