I featured the Barry M Nourishing Lip Mask and Barry M Apple Lip Scrub previously, which are products from the Barry M Spring 2020 collection. Today I have another product from the launch, and it’s one for the nails.
The Barry M Sorbet Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint Collection is a four shade collection of sorbet inspired pastels, which couldn’t be more perfect for spring.
The Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paints are £3.99 each, and to celebrate the launch of the collection, the four polishes have been on an introductory offer of £12 for the four at Superdrug which is a great deal.
Barry M aren’t a brand that really make an effort with their product descriptions and claims like other brands. I’m not sure why, but do feel they might do better if they did have better descriptions and product claims from a marketing perspective.

All the Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paints come with a flat, wide brush for easy application. I wish more of the Barry M nail polishes had this brush, as it’s so much easier and makes application really quick with minimal strokes. The Barry M Sorbet Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint Collection consists of four shades; Lavender, Iced Latte, Berry Sorbet and Candy Floss.
Lavender looks to be a pretty pastel lavender, Iced Latte is a pale beige toned brown, Berry Sorbet is a pastel teal and Candy Floss is a baby pink. All four shades are really pretty, and Spring appropriate. I have bought all four, so I’ll report back on the formula once I’ve had a chance to try them.
The Gelly formula is quite inconsistent with some shades performing better than others, so it’ll be interesting to see how these pastel shades compare because pastel polishes have a tendency to be more streaky and uneven. The polishes are all available right now from Superdrug or Pretty Little Thing.
