I’m sure every blogger and their mother has blogged about these polishes, but I need to rave review this ok? As I said you’ve probably seen these brilliant Speedy Barry M Quick Dry polishes floating around the blogsphere and in the shops lately with it’s nicely themed racer striped tops.
I adore the angled brush, it makes application so much easier as it reaches right into the corners of the nail. Consistency-wise it’s is pretty much in line with other Barry M polishes (a little thinner than a gel lines). Even with two coats, it does live up to it’s promise and dries up super quick, which is perfect for last minute nail decisions for a night out (or if you’re just super impatient like me).
The only flaw I’ve picked up whilst using these is that if left unattended it chips quite easily. I have worked in a top coat which keeps it going for a while longer but that obviously doesn’t dry as quick!
The ranges comes in 15 Summer-y shades, but I picked up a trio of gorgeous pastel colours. The pale blue (‘Eat My Dust’) is a fantastic everyday shade that’s become my go-to recently. There’s also a dreamy lilac (‘Pit Stop’), which again is great for day-to-day wear and has a slight ‘greige’ tint to it. Finally there’s a lighter orange shade (‘Full Throttle’), which is like a less daunting alternative to that covetable corals and tangerines most people veer to at this time of year. All three will carry you throughout the year to be honestly especially the cooler shades.
And in terms of prices, it’s very hard to go wrong with Barry M, you get what you pay for really and there’s always offers on if you want to try out a couple of shades!
Have you tried out these polishes? And which of the other shades should I add to my collections? ;)
