As I mentioned it in my post the other day I thought I best share with you the Nail of the Day of me wearing it! Here is the gorgeous Barry M cosmetics Gelly Nail Varnish in Plum (gnp1). I have previously reviewed/swatched Blackberry (gnp2) and Pomegranate (gnp9) and love both shades, I can see me buying many more of these!
Plum is one of those shades that looks completely different in the bottle as it does to on the nails. In the bottle the colour is more of a violet/plum shade, it reminds me of a 17 nail varnish in Purple Jewel (Which I own but don’t think I’ve done a NOTD for but have used it on a Twitter Pic), then you apply it to the nails and its nothing like the shade at all.

I don’t mind this in a bad way though, in fact I prefer the colour on the nails to that of the bottle shade. On the nails its a deep violet shade, almost black in some lights as you can see from the 2 pictures above.

Add some artificial light and the shade is completely different. In fact, in the other pictures you can see its more of a blue toned violet. Either way, I think Plum is a gorgeous shade and I’m pleased to have added it to my collection.
As with the other polishes in the Barry M Gelly’s, they all have high gloss finishes and have the look of a Shellac/Gellac manicure – without the massive price tag. They obviously don’t last as long as either of those treatments, but for £3.99 I don’t think you can go wrong!
Lots of Love,
