Cruising off Into the Sunset, with Barry M Sunset Nails

It's no secret that a] males do my head in and b] there is only one fella for me - and his name is Barry M. I thought I knew everything there was to know about Barry; I thought me and him were tight. Until I spied this new Sunset Daylight Curing Nail Polish on the lovely Hayley Sparkle's Instagram. And obv I had to try it out.


Barry M Sunset Daylight Curing Topcoat £4.99 / Barry M Sunset Daylight Curing Nail Polish, 'Like a Nude' £4.99



So, what the flip is it? Well, let me tell you. In simple terms, they're like gel nails. But ones you can do yourself. They use daylight to dry quickly; so like getting a Shellac without the UV. Barry M recommend that you use a Sunset Nail Paint first, applying the colour and letting it dry; before applying the Sunset Top Coat over the top - which acts as the gel and sets your colour in place. So that's what I did. 

This is what Barry M say about them:

"Barry M’s new Sunset Daylight Curing Nail Paint and Topcoat deliver the look and resilience of pro salon gel nails without a UV lamp or the expense! All you need is a Sunset colour and the Sunset Topcoat – no need for a basecoat as the special formulation bonds to the nail like a gel in daylight but can still be removed with a regular remover."

I bought these new Barrys from Boots; they have a great offer on at the moment where you buy one Barry M nail polish and get the second half price. So my DIY-Shellac cost me under a tenner, meant I could sit on my arse in my onesie and avoided me having to make small talk with the bird in the salon up the road.



They feel AMAZING - glossy, shiny and strong - and they dried really quite quick; just in the light of my bedroom and without any smudging. I love them. They can last chip-free for up to 10 days it says - and mine have done three loads of washing up, sat in the bath with me for a couple of hours, done a little handwashing and cooked a spag bol with no problems - so I'm very impressed. 

This range will be FANTASTIC for holidays - especially for use on my toenails which quite often chip due to all the abrasive sand and the poor staying power of my normal nail polish choices. And cheaper than getting that bird up the road to do them for me. I'm looking forward to trying more colours from the range - and don't tell Barry cos I'm not sure you're supposed to, but I'm going to try the topcoat over other, normal nail polishes to see if it increases their longevity, too. I'll let you know if this hack works.

What do you think of this Barry M collection? Have you tried them yet?
