Barry M nail polishes are my favourite because there's a wide range of colours and textures, they're just as good quality as the higher end brands such as OPI but they're about 1/3 of the price.
Rrp abound 3 each, they've now started doing matte colours, or also have a matte top-coat for any other colour you want to make matte, plus glitters, pastels, neons, nudes etc.

I'd say they last about 3 days before chipping unless you've got your hands in water a lot and are a nice consistency, 2 coats gives an even finish (as opposed to other brands of a similar price needing about 5 coats)

*TIP when using matte colours; use a normal top coat first then a matte top coat on top- this makes then last longer as matte is notorious for chipping.
ALSO try a plain base colour then apply glitter to the tip, with just a little left on the brush paint it backwards towards the nail bed about half way to achieve a glitter ombre!

I ask for Barry M nail varnishes for my birthday/Xmas every year, and I have about 30. I really, really rate them; it's close to impossible to try to pick just one as there is just so much choice. I would highly recommend the Gelly nail varnishes, not so much the Croc Effects and the textured ones, as I find they dry a bit funny.

The Barry M colours are great, having naturally white nails after 2-3 coats i could still see the white bits. I wouldn't buy this again.

I have 3 Barry m nail polishes, a light yellow shade, a light purple shade and a light blue shade. I can't remember the names of the shades I'm afraid. I used the light blue one first and that one stayed on my nails for at least a week! Obviously my nails got chipped a little bit but most of it stayed on my nails for ages which is fab! These nail polishes are good for the price and there is a large selection to choose from! Plus, it stays on my nails for the amount of time I want it to! :)

I really love Barry M nail varnishes, they have such a huge colour selection as well as being affordable and incredibly decent in quality for the price you pay. They do not chip easily, whether you apply them on false nails or the natural nail, and last an especially long time when you apply a top coat. I currently own seven Barry M polishes (although I'm looking into getting more):
. 302 Fuchsia- a deep fuchsia pink
. 292 Navy- very dark blue
. 279 Bright Pink- a mix of a bubblegum and baby pink
. 349 Rose Quartz Glitter- chunks of pink/gold/silver glitter
. 354 Amethyst Glitter- chunks of turquoise/purple/gold glitter
. 304 Kingsland Road- Very pale baby pink supposed to give a 'textured nail effect'
. 303 Dragon- Part of the 'Gelly' collection, its a bubblegum pink with a 'Hi Shine' effect.
All of these polishes I use on a regular basis and have had many comments on how nice my nails look when I wear them, as well as how long they last. Cannot get enough of these, would definitely buy again and recommend.

I've been using these nail-varnishes for a while now, what I love is the range of colours that you can't find anywhere else. What I don't like, which is a huge no-no for me, is that each layer takes AGES to dry, resulting in my nails messing up.

Love these - I own Block Orange, Coral and Mint Green and all three are super easy to apply, opaque in two coats and never streaky.

Barry M has a huge selection of colours, one of the reasons why I love this brand for nail polish.
The formula is easy to work with, dries reasonably fast and usually lasts about 3-4 days before chipping on me.
They are usually on offer too which makes them quite a steal for the price you pay because the quality of the polishes are quite good.
Great for water marbling too and I use Barry M polishes for nail art quite a lot; they don't goop up easily.
Love the square bottle too - storage is easily dealt with as they can just be lined up neatly.

Overall, great nail polish for a great price.
