The product is made by Barry M and is an all in one nail paint. You can use the nail paint for a basecoat, topcoats and nail hardener on its own or along with other nail paint. I actually went into my local Boots to look for this product as I needed a decent basecoat as I quite often use dark colours on my nails and don't want them looking stained or dis-coloured when I remove the colour. I had heard of this product before and have always been impress by the nail paints in the Barry M range which is why I decided to purchase this particular one. The nail paint is formulated to meet the needs of busy fingers and leaves your nails with a high shine, glossy finish. I normally purchase a strengthening base coat but as this was a 3 in 1 product it sounded well worth having and trying. The product comes in a square shaped glass bottle which is clear so you can see the nail paint and the brush which sits inside the bottle. The colour of the nail paint is clear. The lid to the nail paint is black and you can see that this holds the brush in place. On the back of the bottle it advises you to shake the bottle before using. On the front of the bottle it tells you what the product is. I purchased the nail paint from my local Boots store for £2.99 which I thought was very reasonable. You can also purchase this from the Barry M website and from Superdrug.
Using the Product
= = = = = = = =
I ensured all my nails were clean and dry before applying the product. I shook the bottle well, as you do this you can hear a small ball bearing rattle. I unscrewed the lid and ensured that there was a nice amount of nail paint on the brush. I did wipe the brush slightly on the side to avoid using too much of the product and to also avoid it dripping. I used three strokes of the brush to ensure my nail was covered in the nail paint. The product had the typical strong nail varnish smell to it but I think it was slightly stronger than a normal nail varnish. I left my nails to dry before applying a colour to my nails. The nail paint dried clear and was really shiny, ready for me to apply the main colour. I painted my nails in a bright blue colour and left it to dry. I didn't need to apply the nail paint for a top coat as the blue nail paint was really shiny anyway. The nail paint lasted for a good 4-5 days before chipping and having to remove the colour. Removing the colour was done easily with nail varnish remover and there was no staining on my nails from the blue colour I had used. I have also used the product as a top coat and its leaves my nails looking really shiny and glossy. I have only used this product a few times so I can't be sure if it's actually hardened my nails or not as I have quite hard nails anyway so I can't comment on this aspect of the product. As a top coat the product lasts at least 5-6 before wearing of slightly around the edges of the nail.

This is currently my favourite nail polish to use as a base coat and a top coat. The product lives up to its claims of helping to prevent staining on nails and it also provides a high shine and glossy finish to the nails when used as a top coat. I think the product is really good value for money and slightly cheaper in comparison to other brands such as Maybelline and Rimmel. I would definitely purchase this product again when my current bottle runs out and I would also highly recommend it to others to use. This is a much better basecoat that the current product I was using and provides a much better finish to my nails as well. This is another great Nail Care product from Barry M which deserves a fantastic 5 out of 5 stars.
