Barry M Passion Fruit

If you had a colour that was a perfect mix of pink, orange and red, and which you could not describe except by using ALL those words, then you would have Barry M Passion Fruit.

Passion Fruit is from the new summer range of Gelly Hi-Shine polishes. Five new shades have been added to the Hi-Shine range and while they’re not available for a few more weeks in the usual shops (Boots and Superdrug), they *are* available on the Barry M website 🙂

The shades are:

  • Key Lime (lime)
  • Guava (turquoise/teal)
  • Passion Fruit (pink/orange/red … OK, so a hot coral, maybe?)
  • Blue Grape (cobalt blue)
  • Mango (orange)

I love the Hi-Shine polishes. Very often they are one-coaters, with a lovely shine that only needs a top coat if you want added durability. I’ve used two coats plus a top coat for this. It took two coats to be nicely opaque, and I’ve added top coat because I wanted it to dry quickly!

It applied very nicely and had the characteristic shiny finish. It’s slap bang in between a red and a pink … and in some lights it leans orange. The best I can describe the colour is as a hot coral shade. It’s lovely and bright; just perfect for summer. I think I’ll be wearing this a lot and it’ll look lovely for holiday toenails too.

Here’s all five new shades. I do think the photos don’t quite do justice to Passion Fruit, nor the other polish that I have, Guava (which you can see soon!)

I don’t have a problem with people using my photos as long as they do not crop or edit them in any way and as long as they credit me and provide a link to my blog.
