Barry M Sunset Daylight Curing Nail Polish Review

Barry M are the queen of nail polishes in the drugstore.  Their colour range of polishes are insane!  Honestly, whatever colour you're after, you will find it at Barry M!  Last year I tried out the Barry M Gelly Polish range and fell in love with it.  The formula is perfect and the shiny finish is second to none.  So when they released the latest Barry M Sunset Daylight Curing Nail Polish (£4.99), my nails were ready for these!

The idea behind this range is that you can get pro salon gel nails at home without expensive salons or even UV lamps.  The Daylight Curing Topcoat can only be used with the Sunset Nail Polishes to give that gel nail finish.  I like the idea of it, it's a little gimmicky but hey who doesn't want gel nails with minimal effort?  I've had gel nails before and the effort and damage to your nails, just isn't worth it!

The Sunset polishes are brilliant in quality.  The consistency of the polish are almost opaque in one coat, but two polish gives the perfect finish.  The brush is flat and the size fits your nail perfectly.  I usually wait a few minutes before going in with the Daylight Curing Topcoat.  Just one coat of the topcoat gives a super glossy finish, I haven't seen such glossy finish from any other topcoat!  This alone makes my nail look like gel nails!  I then let them dry and go about my own way.  I can't say I've seen much of a difference in terms of shine or colour of 'curing' them in daylight.  I can only assume that it perhaps contributes to the longevity of your manicure i.e. the daylight curing makes the polish last longer on your nails? maybe?

The polishes lasted on my nails on average around 6 days without any kind of chipping.  That's impressive!  And I'm one of those horrible nail pickers, like I'll sit and pick my nail polish off as I watch TV.  I know, shameful...  But the super glossy finish was so amazing and beautiful even I refrained from picking!  I haven't included all the swatches in this post, but keep an eye on my instagram (@aspiringlondoner) as I'll post them over the next few days.  The swatches are of 'The Way You Make Me Teal' and 'Peach For The Stars'  I've worn nothing but these polishes for the past couple of weeks, and probably will do over summer too!  Well worth the money, especially with 3 for 2 offers all over Superdrug & Boots!
