Barry M: Hi Shine Gel Effect Nail Polish.

I have always been a fan of Barry M nail polishes for as long as I can remember. I have TONS of the nail paint and a couple of Instant Nail Effects, but as soon as my sister came home with the 'Hi Shine Gel Effect' (RRP: £3.99) I couldn't wait to try it out!

The Hi Shine Gel Effects come in a range of shades but this one here 'Pomegrante'. Personally I'm not a massive fan of red coloured nail polishes but this shade wasn't too poppy red, more raspberry red.

Barry M claims the Hi Shine Gel Effects Nail Polish will provide an extra glossy finish in just one coat. That is just what it did but to make it last longer I would recommend using more than one coat. It doesn't have a super shiny finish as you may expect but it's still better than the average polish. One thing that bugs me about painting my nails is sometimes the polishes take aaaaaaaaages to dry and sometimes I just continue with what I need to do with my day resulting in a lot of smudges but Hi Shine seemed to have dried really quick (I suppose only really needing one coat is a bonus).

As I said previously I am a fan of Barry M nail paints so will probably end up buying myself more of the Hi Shine as I don't have anything bad to say about it. Perhaps next time I will try Blue Plum or Blackberry though!

Have you tried Hi Shine Gel Effect before? What's your favourite shade?
