NOTD - Barry M Blue Moon 317 & Greenberry

Barry M Blue Moon 317 - £2.99 Superdrug (currently free UK delivery until 30th July!)
Barry M Gelly High Shine Greenberry - £3.99 Superdrug
Hey everyone, just a quick post today to show you my "creative" nails of the day. I'm so lazy when it comes to my nails and is it just me, or does anyone else get so impatient waiting for their nails to dry they ruin them all anyway?! Yep, most of mine is already scuffed within minutes of doing my nails but oh well...

I kept it quite simple as my nail varnish never lasts long and it doesn't look as great on camera it seems as it does in real life. My right hand turned out better though which isn't pictured, a minor excuse! My base coat was Barry M's Blue Moon 317 which is a very pale blue. It's a really nice polish but I think we've been spoilt recently with their Gelly high shine polishes, they're too good! It takes a few coats to get the coat that looks similar to the packaging shade but it's still a bargain at £2.99.

The one thing I dislike about Barry M is the brush. I find it very small and hard to work with. My ideal polish would be the consistency of the Gelly shine range and the brush of the Essie polishes! Not too much to ask though, right? I used Greenberry on my accent ring fingers which compliments Blue Moon well I think. The glitter at the edges just gives it something different, plus I have so many glitter polishes that I've not used in so long that I'm worried they'll dry up in this heat!

It took a mere 5-10 minutes and little effort but as long as they look pretty, then it's worth waiting. Anyone else find they want to do everything when they've just started their nails, go turn on the tv, go to the toilet..

What's your favourite nail shades this Summer? Are you a lover of the Barry M Gelly polishes too?
