I always gravitate to purple nail polishes so Prickly Pear was an obvious choice from the new Barry M Gelly range. A unique pastel purple with tones of blue and grey. I love the formula of the original Barry M Nail Paints so I was excited to see how these matched up.
Firstly I found the formula quite thick which made it hard to apply neatly and meant it took a while to dry fully. I also found I preferred three coats of this as I found two coats chipped easily. These are long lasting and 'hi shine' on the nails though I think I left this colour on for nearly 7 days with only a little bit of tip wear. I'd be happy to work with the formula and the longer drying time to get the amazing finish and long lasting colour. I also have the shade Green Berry, somewhere between a turquoise and jade green, which looks really bright and shiny on the nails but I had the same problems with the formula.
