More Gelly shades from Barry M? They are spoiling us this year with their Gelly launches. It’s one of my favourite nail polish formulas, thick and glossy, so I was really looking forward to trying the new shades. There are three super bright shades also available in this collection, but I wanted to focus on my favourites, so here they are… 

Elderberry // This is a really pretty blue, a little similar to Essie ‘Truth or Flare’ but slightly more blue and less grey. I think it’s a more mature way of wearing blue and I love this shade. 

Almond // This is going to be the one that everyone loves. It’s chic, easy to wear and has that sophisticated greige tone similar to YSL ‘Beige Gallery’. 

Coconut // This is an off-white shade that is perfect for those who aren’t keen on tipex nails. It’s a slightly yellow-toned white and it goes with everything! 

Olive // As the name describes, this one is a moss green. Although it may be a strange colour choice for summer, I do like the shade and I think it would be a good festival nail colour! 

This collection is already available in Superdrug and will be going into Boots on 14th May. So which one is your favourite?

    Wow these shades are gorgeous! Definitely picking a few off these up soon!

  8. I tried these for the first time this week, I know they’ve been all the rage for ages now but I just didn’t believe they’d be anything that special. Actually, I have to admit, the formula is really nice – and it hasn’t chipped yet either, which is a massive plus for me!

    I was never a fan of Barry M polishes until they released the Gelly formula, now I’m completely converted. I have Almond too, and find myself reaching for it all the time!
    Have you seen Huckleberry, the new pastel blue shade? It’s so pretty for this time of year 🙂

    I picked up a couple in boots 3 for 2 the other day. Is it bad that I struggled to find shades that I don’t already own?

  18. Scoo says:

  22. Ooo I like!
    Most summer colours seem to be bright pinks and neon colours, I really like these more neutral shades.

  27. Gillian Lamb says:

    uh oh…I’ve only first tried the gelly polishes a few days ago – went out and bought 3 more the next day…and now I MUST have these in my life! The blue is very similar to truth or flare which I have but I can live with that…

    I love the look of these – especially the blue and the green shade! I almost wish they were a bit brighter though seeing as it’s Summer 🙂

  43. Ellie C says:

    These are so pretty! Although I love wearing brighter colours during summer, I think these make a great alternative to “traditional” summer colours!

  44. I really like Olive. I think it is an interesting color and will of course transition well into fall.


  45. Love that blue colour! I may have to go and pick it up!

  50. Emily Miller says:

    More Gelly nail polishes! That’s great, I will definitely be trying them out soon (even though I have enough already!)

  51. Love Elderberry it’s so pretty! 🙂

  52. Asya T says:

    Although Elderberry is a very beautiful colour I’m already pretty tired of light blue nail polishes so my choice is Olive – very unusual, sophisticated and unique

  53. Ellie says:

    I love the Gelly formulas. They are so good for the price. I really like the Olive shade so might have to pop and buy that one next!

  54. The blue shade is so gorgeous!
    I agree that it is definitely a more mature blue, very wearable.

  55. Holly Keyes says:

    I bought Essie’s Truth or Flare based on your recommendation so I think I’ll give Elderberry a miss. I love the Almond shade though! x
