Barry M’s Speedy Quick Dry Nail Paint

If you have been a long time reader of my blog, then you will understand my love affair with Barry M and in particular their Gelly Hi-Shines. For this reason, I thought I would give their new Speedy Quick Dry paints a go and see if they live up to their “lightning speed for a perfect mani” claim.

I decided to update my pastels when choosing the colours as mine were getting a bit old. I love the new brush as they make application so easy and a lot quicker. The polishes definitely live up to their claim of being quick dry too as they were dry by the time I had finished painting both hands and luckily enough I only needed two coats before they became opaque with no streaks. However for me the formula didn’t last as long as I hoped. It went two days before my nails started chipping and that was with a top coat as well.


Overall I really enjoyed the polishes especially In A Heart Beat. I do have my eye on some of the new colours like Supersonic which is a gorgeous blue shade and Get Set Go which is a lovely dark rose pink shade.

Have you tried the Barry M’s Speedy Quick Dry paints yet? What are your thoughts?

    These are all gorgeous shades! I picked up Pit Stop the other day and I love it. I’ll definitely have to treat myself to a couple more.
