Lately I had so many rainbow shades on my nails that I forgot what a pleasure it is to have a simple girly pink manicure on. Barry M Gelly Nail Effects in Dragon Fruit came to my rescue and it looks absolutely lovely. You probably won't see this on the swatches, because it is very hard to capture on the photos, but it has an iridescent finish, very subtle glitter, which makes my nails shimmer in the sunlight. I have applied two coats here and topped it with Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat, but next time I am putting at least three coats - I am not very satisfied with the effect and it seems a let down from this Gelly Nail Effect range, because usually these nail polishes have a very opaque formula.

Also, I just want to say huge thank you to all of my followers and subscribers - I've passed 1,000 followers mark on GFC and on Bloglovin' which means a world to me! I am currently having some writer's block issues also caused by the fact that I didn't have a 'proper' blogging break this year, but I am hoping it will change very soon and I am ready to brainstorm some new fresh ideas this week. I am also planning a giveaway as a thank you, but in the meantime you still have time to enter my Nivea giveaway and you can be 1 of 10 winners!

  5. This is such a nice shade! I have a few of the other colours in the range and really like them, although I agree that the gel effect isn't as obvious as you'd think.
