I bought Barry M's Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint in Papaya a really long time ago (when it first came out) and I haven't reviewed it until now for one reason, I just don't get along with this colour. I love how it looks in the bottle and I love the colour itself but it just doesn't suit me. I've been wearing it all year - mainly on my toes - because I love the Barry M Gelly Hi Shine formula and I hate being completely wrong about a purchase. However, the more I use it the more I realise that it's a unique shade. I haven't seen anything quite like it since I bought it and I think I hadn't seen anything like it before I'd bought it either - which might explain why it surprised me so much. It isn't a pink, it isn't a coral - if this was a lipstick I might feel more comfortable with it, but it's inability to be categorized does bother the part of me that obsessively organises everything.
In short, I love the formula, on my nails it lasts really well and is also incredibly glossy. I also love the colour itself. However, I'd only purchase this if you're willing to give something new a chance because this shade surprised me - and I'm still not quite sure if it was in a good way or a bad one.
Do you like the look of 'Papaya'?
