The Barry M Gelly range is my favourite formula of nail polish from the high street, next to the Barry M Speedy Quick Dry line, so when I saw these two limited edition shades I knew I had to get my hands on them. Specially after my cousin (Mr Boom Nails) told me how great they were! Whenever Barry M releases limited edition shades at Christmas I always have to pick at least one of them up, I am still obsessed with the Christmas Tree glitter from last year.
Swatched: Sparkling Ruby, Sparkling Amethyst
The Barry M Gelly Nail Paint range is one of the best formulas out there. It is incredibly glossy, has a high pigmentation, full colour with most polishes in one or two coats and is long lasting on my nails. These two limited edition shades are going to be perfect for the party season or whenever you fancy glitter nails with a gorgeous colour to them. The brushes on these nail polishes are fantastic because they fit the nail perfectly without getting any polish on the skin surrounding the nail, similar to the Essie brushes.
Both shades are such gorgeous shades with beautiful shimmer/glitter running through them. Both polishes have smooth finish, not textured like some glitter polishes and because they are from the gelly line there isn't really a need for any top coat. Sparkling Ruby is a red shade, its showing much pinker in the swatches than it is in real life, with a golden shimmer effect. I think this is the shade I will have on my nails for Christmas Day as it is so festive! Sparkling Amethyst is a deep purple with silver and blue toned glitter running through. This shade would be perfect for the toes and on the nails for the Winter months, I think I am going to wear this shade for New Years Eve. These polishes both lasted up for 4-5 days on my nails which really surprised me because my nails normally chip within a day or too.
Both of these gorgeous shades are limited edition so if you do want to get your hands on them, I would act quickly because once they are gone they are gone! Superdrug have an offer on currently when you spend £6 you get Sparkling Ruby for free which is a fab deal! Both of these nail polishes are available at Superdrug - link.
