Barry M are one of my favourite affordable nail polishes; their Gelly range is fabulous, I love all the colours!
The Speedy Quick Dry is no different, I am in love with all nine shades of polish (although I would prefer 10, it’s just a nicer number), they’re beautiful pastels, perfect for spring and summer. Recently I have been quite lazy with nail polish, skipping it all together as I find it just takes too long to dry so I was really excited to see how these perform.
The quality of the polishes really varies depending on the colour with some being a little streakier than others but most require two thin coats (possibly three) for an even coverage. I think the key with these is really the thin coats as it can get quite thick and in turn, quite streaky but with careful application I think they’re great. In terms of drying time, I applied two coats waited 10 minutes and got on with normal life, although they are a touch dry at about 5 minutes.
I’ve heard a lot of people say that these aren’t that exciting as they use quick drying top coats but sometimes when I’m in a rush I don’t have time to also apply a top coat making the drying time a real selling point for me. I do find these chip quite easily and I only got 3/4 days wear (slightly less than usual) but I still find them very convenient.
