Red nails always make me feel that extra bit glamorous and I always find they cheer up even the simplest outfit. I may well have found my perfect shade. I say I found, I mean Beka (the best one/chief enabler/bad influence) bought the Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine in Blood Orange for me, so thanks 🙂

Gorgeous, glossy and red, what more could a girl want?
The formula is opaque in two coats and it dries pretty quickly. The first coat goes on a little streaky, but it is nothing another coat won’t sort out. The brush is skinny which allows for precise application. I’m a fat nail brush kinda girl, but this one is easy enough to use. I find it picks a little too much product out of the pot though.
This lasted around 4 days on me, which is super long for my nails! I was using my hands a lot too, so this stuff is pretty hard wearing.
For £3.99 a bottle (or two for £6 at Superdrug at the moment) you can’t go wrong.
All in all it is a gorgeous red, with slight orange undertones, which is bang on trend for this season.
What’s your perfect red?
