Barry M Cosmetics Speedy Nail Paint, Turbo Charged
Barry M Cosmetics Speedy Nail Paint, Turbo Charged
Price: £3.99

4.0 out of 5 stars I'm a Barry M fan and love the jelly range, 1 July 2015
I'm a Barry M fan and love the jelly range. I was bought this varnish as a gift and it does dry faster than normal varnishes, but only touch dry. Useful when applying more coats, but it's not fully dry - you still have to wait the usual few hours for it to be dent-proof. I'm not bothered by this, but my one star down is because this really does stain the nails. I'm not sure if it's the pigment of this specific colour or the quick dry properties that mean it stains... But stain it does. The pictures show the lovely colour and unfortunately, I couldn't get a decent picture of the staining, but have done my best so people are aware! If you look at the bottom of my nails, this may give an idea of the difference in colour.

I've been using this as my work mug for many months now and people always comment on how lovely it is. Very sturdy and well made, as you would expect from Le Creuset.

I used these for crochet blocking and they're perfect. Don't spend out on the overpriced ones exactly the same! These are great!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great nails and at a good price., 9 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are great. Strong and durable and can be cut down to size. A great variety of sizes on offer and fantastic value. The only reason I've not reordered is that I used these to grow my nails and now have my own nails to decorate, but should the short nails reappear, I'll be back for these!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for protection from falls, but great for scratch protection., 9 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's thin and won't protect your phone from a big drop, so don't buy it for that! But... if you're looking for a protective cover to save your phone from marks and scratches, it's unobtrusive and works as intended. Can't grumble at the price either. Great delivery speed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful polish with a lovely finish., 2 Jun. 2015
Beautiful colour and lovely finish. The picture with the bottle is after one coat and without the bottle is after the second coat. Could really get away with one coat, but I love the thick, gel-like look. I love all the gelly range I've tried so far - even for someone as clumsy as me, it evens out into a beautiful glossy coating. I'll definitely be buying more in the range. Also... added bonus is Barry M's ethical stance on animal testing, or lack thereof. Great product from a great company.

1.0 out of 5 stars Won't buy again., 25 May 2015
Had been growing my nails for ages using other polishes, used this manicure set and three nails split the next day. All of them broke at the point where the white tips started as the difference in polish thickness made the line weak to bending and splitting. The polish took forever to dry even with a top coat and was denting for hours after applying. Additionally, the pearly sheen made the tips look more blue than pink. Needless to say, won't be purchasing again. Such a disappointment as I was really looking forward to doing my own French nails with this set.
