Barry M Gelly Spring/Summer 2016

Barry M Gelly Spring Summer 2016

Press Sample 

This post is long overdue, but the Spring/Summer '16 Gellies from Barry M are finally making an appearance. I can't believe I waited this long to try them (I'm blaming my epic nail break) because they're wonderful and I'm so in to soft, airy shades at the moment.

The Gelly range is one of my favourite lines ever, I have every single one lined up on a shelf and they make a perfect palette. I don't know how I managed before the introduction of the flat brush, though. I wish I could swap every brush for it, it makes application a million times easier (although if you have tiny nails, you might not feel the same!)

Though there's been no word of a formula change, to me these seem a lot smoother than previous releases. Let me know what you think if you've tried them.

Acai Smoothie is a dusky magenta. Super smooth, self levelling formula, this is 2 coats without top coat.

Pink Lemonade is a super soft, super pale pink. 2 coats, no top coat

Butterscotch Sundae is a creamy nude. 2 coats, no top coat

Cream Soda is an interesting one, it's ivory with a yellowy undertone. Kind of unusual! You could use 2 coats if you're careful, but I'm not so I used 3.

I put together a quick comparison of the neutral Gelly shades. In real life Lychee and Butterscotch Sundae are a little more similar than the picture suggests, but still different enough to warrant owning both. Promise!

I love everything about these shades, as always with this line. The smooth, self levelling formula is the best you can get in this price range. Let me know what you think!


- Available now from Boots, Superdrug and Barry M, priced £3.99 each.



  1. Such stunning swatches, I always get excited when Barry M add new Gellys xx

  2. I love all of these! The comparison is so helpful as they do look a bit similar but I can see they're different enough to want all of them haha!

  3. Gorgeous colours! (and swatches as always). I MUST not buy any more.... it's so hard :-)

  4. Ah, so pretty, especially the last two! Such a shame we don't get Barry M here.

  5. These are so beautiful, they look so perfect on you, Allie <3

  6. Gorgeous, is pink lemonade similar to cirque Whitney?

  7. They surely are soft and airy and they look gorgeous on your beautiful nails,hun. Like Emily said, there's a sea of difference between the two lines - enough to make us want both ;)

  8. Ooo these look lovely! :D

    I like the look of shade coconut. ^_^

  9. I feel like I haven't commented in 100 years, but beautiful swatches as always! Cream Soda looks so unique <3
