Barry M Speedy Quick Dry Polishes - £3.99

It's been a while since there has been hype surrounding a new Barry M product and if I'm honest regardless of the hype surrounding their new Speedy Quick Dry Polishes I was completely all for skipping this launch. Realistically did I need another pastel nail colour? Not really, however whilst wasting some time in Edinburgh I ended up picking two polishes up from the range in Superdrug. My excuse was that they were 3 for 2 and one of the items was free. Anyway I'm doing my usual of digressing - back to the post.

First up which is a major breakthrough for Barry M polishes is that this range has a new wider flatter brush, which makes application so much easier. This brush can only be found in the Speedy Quick Dry range, so I don't know whether this is added to this range for quickness. The two shades I picked up were Eat My Dust and Road Rage, both quite apt to describe my driving. Eat My Dust is a soft powder blue, which reminds me of Models Own Beth's Blue, but slightly more lighter.. Road Rage is a very light green, it again reminds me of a lighter Rimmel Peppermint. If I'm honest I think I could have gotten away with not getting Road Rage, as I don't think I'll get much wear out it it. Eat My Dust on the other hand its a beaut of a colour, which works for both your fingers and toes.

Personally I've read on many blogs that these polishes take three coats to be fully opaque, however I've only ever used two thick coats and jobs a good un. I would describe the formula to be very similar to Models Own polishes and they do dry quickly. Compared to the normal Barry M nail paints, these do last a good 3 days before I see any sign of tip wear, however I still think their gelly polishes last much longer on the nail. Plus it's also worth noting that these lighter polishes do end up looking "dirter" after a few days if you don't use a top coat. Which shades are you obsessed with?
