Barry M Lolly Gloss is one of the latest collection from Barry M. It Consists of four sheer polishes with glossy jelly finish.

Barry M Lolly Gloss polishes come with a luuush flat brush that make the application a nice stress-free experience, I think ALL Barry M polishes should have that brush (hint! hint!).

The formulas of the polishes were great, obviously on the sheer side as meant for a kind of ‘tinted’ look. The formulas also have lovely sweet fragrance.

As of the colour choice the collection is not very exciting, two of the red polishes are almost identical. I wouldn’t even bother buying both of them- it is just not necessary to have polishes so similar to each other. I would of definitely preferred to see more colour choice- a blue or a yellow maybe? However, I have a feeling that there might be another collection with more colours coming out later in the year.

On the swatches I am showing each of polish with three coats and no top coat. They are super glossy! However, with three coats they dried a bit slower than an average polish and therefore fast dry top coat is recommended.

Anyhow, I have heard that this collection is just perfect for something called ‘a pond mani‘, so I am planning to have a go with that soon :)

Talking about the tinted look, I defo prefer this collection over the OPI Sheer Tints tinted polishes (which I had but never swatched- not sure why). Anyway, they were too ‘sheer’ to be wearable on their own whereas these polishes look really nice just on their own.

These are priced £3.99 each, however, right now both Boots and Superdrug have a ‘buy one get other half price’ deal going on, making them a pretty decent bargain.

Thanks for reading! xx

Lovely swatches :-) My bottles arrived to and they are really so pretty. Sheer but still very wearable on their own and suepr glossy. Formula is awesome as well.
Would be awesome if they bring more colours with this finish, maybe a nice winter collection with a dark red or blue of green?
