Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint

So i am extremely late to the bandwagon on this but i felt the need to rave about these and didn't want to just leave it at a small mention in a favourites post because seriously these are amazing! 
If you had asked me about a month ago what my favourite nail polish brand was i would of been a loyal Essie supporter but after buying one of these on a whim in boots Essie doesn't even compare!
Before a night out at the start of August i bought Satsuma (the first shade) in a rush hoping it would compliment Macs Vegas Volt lipstick nicely (sad i know) and after that i was hooked.

 I wore Satsuma to death all of August and it is the most long wearing nail polish i have ever tried. Seriously no matter what nail varnish i had used in the past high end or high street it would always chip straight away the best run i had was with Essie and thats why i loved them so much but i can honestly say i could leave this on my nails for over a week and it would remain virtually chip free, exactly what you want in a nail polish right?! Not to mention the amazing finish these give no need for a top coat with these they leave your nails super shiney as if you've just had a shellac manicure but at a fraction of the price. The glossiness does fade after about three days but not to a completely matte or dull shade and the polish still looks fresh!

So needless to say after i got home from England a few weeks ago i was straight to boots to buy a couple more of these, i could honestly never buy another brand of nail polish again these are THAT good! I picked up blueberry the gorgeous pale blue shade and blood orange which is a bit misleading as its 100% bright red! You can pick them up buy one get one half price in boots right now (here) and there is a good colour range to choose from i'm definitely eager to get my hands on a few more and even without the deal £3.99 for a polish is a great price, to me anyway, considering the eight pounds or there abouts i used to fork out for Essie! 

The pictures above show the colours on my nails after just one coat.

Have you tried any of the Barry M Gelly polishes? Which shade is your favourite if you have??
