Barry M Gelly: Newest Editions

Anyone who has read my blog before will know that the Barry M Gelly polishes are just my all time favourites, even compared to my more high end polishes. Recently they released some new shades and I picked up three, all of which I absolutely adore! The three shades I picked up were Coconut, Elderberry and Damson, and I think my favourite is probably Elderberry. 




Elderberry is a very grey toned blue and its one of those shades that can just be worn all year round. As with all the polishes the formula is super thick and glossy and you only need two coats. Please excuse the messy painting, this colour was on my right hand and obviously I am right handed so...its the messy hand. 


Damson is a pretty bright cobalt blue that is very different to any other polish that I own. I actually only needed one coat of this really, but two would probably be better if you want it to last as long as possible. Again with this colour I think it would work well in the warmer months and also the colder months as its not too season specific. 


Lastly Coconut, which I have to show you on my toes (apologies to people with foot phobias) as I ran out of hands to paint. I had to paint from a broken bottle as the bottle just randomly broke where the lid should be screwed on, and it spilt all over my bed sheets which was not okay. I don't know if it was the heat or something but I wasn't impressed. Anyway, its a very pale off white/cream colour that I adore(d) (before I had to bin it). Again it took two coats but it went very glossy. 


There are a few more colours that I really want to try out from the new collection such as Olive which has had very mixed reviews. They're all £3.99 which is such a bargain! Have you got a favourite from the new colours?
