Review | Barry M Hi-Shine Gelly Nail Paint in 'Sugar Apple'

I've been on the hunt for the perfect 'tiffany blue' nail polish to see me into the summer for a while now and I honestly think I've found it. Let me introduce you to a Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint in the colour Sugar Apple, isn't she a beauty?! I actually do not own many nail polishes due to working full time in a restaurant where painted nails are a no-no, so any chance I can to paint my nails means that I want the colour to be special, reflect my mood and stand out on my fingers. Sugar Apple is one such colour, it's invited people to start up conversation with me, received the nod of approval from J and makes me smile when I catch a glimpse of it on my fingers. 

The polish itself is not as 'hi-shine' as I would have expected from a bottle claiming to be such. It's not matte by any means, I just think it's not got that supercharge glossy finish I'd want to expect when it completely dries on the nail. It makes up for this in colour however, it's as close to my treasured Tiffany & Co jewellery boxes as I could hope to get and for that reason alone I am totally enamoured with this nail paint. The easy application and the fact that it only took two coats to give such an excellent colour pay off has really impressed me too. Sugar Apple is an incredibly affordable way to jump right into summer with it's lovely little price tag (I bought mine from Superdrug for £3.99) and I'd highly recommend this colour and brand!
