Out of the entire line up that Barry M released for their Summer collection for the Gelly Hi-Shine range, Blue Grape is by far my favourite colour out of them all. It's a bright, cobalt blue which looks very similar to the infamous Nails Inc Baker Street which apparently is a favourite of Beyonces'. 

Whilst Blue Grape is such a bright colour, I found that it would have taken at least two coats to become opaque hence why I've put a white base on before hand to help enhance it and make it just a little brighter. I've been wearing this for a little over three days and I've received so many compliments on my nails! Even Liam has noticed what a beautiful colour it is and he rarily notices when I've painted my nails unless I point it out to him. I think this colour would be perfect when paired with a tan so I think I might bring it along with me to America next year.


  1. Oooo this colour looks beautiful. I don't like Barry M much because I find it chips on my nails, but this colour is tempting <3 please come check my blog out loves. x

    1. I find that the standard Barry M nail varnishes chip within hours however with the Gelly range, they last a little bit longer before they start chipping :) You should definitely pick up this shade, you won't regret it! xo

  2. Ooooh this colour is gorgeous! I love the Gelly polishes, they're all so pretty :)
