Barry M Jewel Glitter Nail Paint - Pink Sapphire
The product I am reviewing is the Barry M Jewel Glitter Nail Paint.
Barry M is a fairly cheap fashion range of beauty products that are available at most Boot's and Superdrug stores and are available online at www.barry.com however this said, in my experience these products are equal to many of their higher price counterparts.
There are two distinctive styles of the Barry M Glitter range, the Glitter Nail Paints, which are basically a coloured polish with very fine glitter of the same colour of very similar colour particles in the polish. Then there is the Barry M Jewel Glitter Nail Paints, these polishes have larger glitter in the polishes that is a completely different colour to the polish.
I have several of each and these polishes and they are really nice for a night out.
My favourite of the Jewel Glitter Nail Paints is the one called Pink Sapphire, which is why I chose this one to review obviously! The name Pink Sapphire gives the impression that this polish is simply pink glitter, this is far from fact! Although it does look pink in the bottle, there is every colour under the rainbow inside the bottle which is really pretty when you move it around in the light.
The reason Pink Sapphire is my favourite glitter polish is that this one actually comes in a clear gel polish rather than a coloured one, this gives it much more versatility and can be worn as either a polish on it's own or over another polish to create al sorts of nail effects.
The polishes come in an average rectangle shaped glass polish bottle with a silver lid. The brush is nothing out of the ordinary, how is functional and I found that it was small enough to manage to paint my small nail which I sometimes have issues with due to tiny nails.
These glitter polishes dry quite fast, I find usually within 5-10 minutes the glitter is completely set and I can get on with life without worrying about ruining my design.
I have found on average these polishes last between 4-6 days for me, so not the longest lasting polish but then to be honest I do not like to wear glitter to work so these are fine for weekend wear.

I really like these polishes, they are fun, lots of choices, cheap and perfect for a night out. I would give these polishes 5 out of 5.
