sunday nails #39 - barry m gelly paint 'guava'

I hope everyone has had a lovely week! I am currently nursing the hangover from hell, I don't think I will ever learn! Although I don't tend to go and party too often, so I like to do it in style when I actually do ha!

This week I have a Barry M nail varnish to show you, its another shade from the gelly range and its called guava. I really wanted to do some nail art, but this week has absolutely flown by so I haven't found the time anywhere, although the shade of this colour is so beautiful that I feel this is just as good!

Barry M gelly nail paint 'guava' £3.99

Guava actually appears a lot lighter in these photos than it does in real life, the actual shade is a darker teal. I tried at different times throughout the day and really can't get the colour spot on..pesky polish! It is pretty similar to the colour of a spearmint polo wrapper, yes I eat way too many sweets! This polish is opaque in 2 coats and unlike other Gelly shades I have used before this one doesn't start off streaky which is nice. As usual for Barry M this is really good value for money and the shine that it leaves on your nails is beautiful!

I hope you all have a lovely Sunday, mine will be a tedious one as I am in work for stock take, so think of me as you are enjoying your roast dinners!

    1. Aww thanks sweet!
      I do love a teal green, don't you?

  2. That shade is gorgeous but I think the name is a little off.. Aren't guavas green and pink on the inside?? haha xx

    1. Haha I did think that!
      I even had to recheck the shade name/what colours guavas are to make sure.
      Who knows, I do love the colour though hehe.
