Barry M – Guava review

  Coverage: 2 coats

 Drying time: Average, a couple of minutes

 Finish: Perfect! No streaks or see through areas

 Hardwearing: 5 days including 4 days typing at work, 4 days of gaming, 1 hour of horse riding and some light housework.



When it comes to mainstream polishes I’m a huge fan of Barry M, particularly the Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint range. Below are some pictures of “Guava”, please ignore my awful clean-up job! All Barry M polishes are available on


“Guava” is a lovely summery blue that makes me think of tropical oceans. One coat would not be enough, it tends to be quite streaky but two covers it nicely and it dries to a high shine, just as the range promises. I have also found it to be very hard wearing and it doesn’t take ages to dry either.
