Review: Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint

Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint by Barry M in Lychee

I've succumbed to blogger pressure and bought my first Gelly Hi-Shine. I'm gonna list the pros and cons for me, obviously they may be different for you so I'd recommend borrowing a friend's nail polish (like I did) before purchasing your own! Also I'm not the best at paint nails either so I sometimes ruin a perfectly good nail polish!


Gorgeous colour! I knew I wanted this shade after seeing bloggers buying selections of colours.
Great application. After purchasing many Barry M nail polishes, I wasn't disappointed! 
Shine-ability, is that even a word?! Obviously 'Hi-shine' suggests a great shiny nail polish, which it delivered!


When it chips it peels off. I don't know whether other people have had this problem or maybe because I paint my nails in thick layers (I know it's better to do thin layers but I'm always in a rush!)
During it's 'soft' stage (when it's kinda wet and kinda dry) it's really impressionable. Like loads of fluff gets stuck in them, which is so annoying!

They aren't really cons, mainly me not painting them properly! I think I'll try out a few more shades and spend a little more time and care on my nails.

Hope you all enjoyed this post!

  1. I always paint my varnish on really thick too. Nightmare to get it to dry but I think it looks good thicker! This colour looks really pretty though!

  2. I've brought the Gelly Shine before in a purple colour, its good just takes about 2 hours to dry!

  3. I love these, I have about 4 now including Lychee. Some people have had problems with them, but I think they're fab! xxx

  4. Great review. I am always looking for new nail polishes.
