As I mentioned in my may favourites I have been loving the Barry M High Shine Gel Effect Nail Paint in the shade Lychee.
At first I wasn't to fussed about the new line of gel effect polishes, I thought you could get the same effect by using a top coat. To be honest I still think that, but the shade drew me in. Lychee is a Beautiful beige nude. I am impressed with its easy application, most light shades can turn out streaky but this went on smoothly & only needed two coats. This is probably to do with its rather thick consistency, which in a way is great for colour pay off but on the other hand not great for the longevity of the polish, on me this polish lasts 2-3 days max before it starts to peel off. As I am always changing my polish this doesn't bother me to much.One tip I do have for making the polish last is applying a coat of glitter over the top!
