nails: barry m gelly polish 'prickly pear'

I'd been on the hunt for a baseball style top like this for sooo long and now Topshop have finally provided me with one, thank you! I really like the sportswear trend which is trickling into the shops at the moment for the upcoming Spring season so this top is my starting point. I paired it with my trusty AA lycra leggings and Topshop boots which always come in handy on days where I want a little extra height but still with the comfort factor. I also wore my chunky rose gold chain necklace which I've become pretty attached to at the moment. I'm not one for dainty silver jewellery, I love my cheap n chunky pieces so this is perfect.

Recently, I have read many good reviews for the new Barry M Gelly nail polish so when I saw it on a 3 for 2 offer in Boots I decided to buy it. I wasn't a massive fan of the range of colours, they all seemed pretty dull so I went for this lavendar shade, a dark purple and a raspberry red. I have to say I am really impressed with the overall finished look. The polish has an extra glossy and thick appearance with a strong staying power. I've been wearing the polish since Monday and haven't had any chips so that's a bonus. The only thing I would say is you do have to add extra coats throughout the week as the colour tends to dull. And one last thing, what is with the names of the shades?! 'Prickly Pear'? I really don't understand who chose these names and why but they need to be changed, asap!
