Barry M Instant nail effects is a new way to achieve amazing nails in just a few minutes and strokes. With different effects available each time you apply it you can obtain a manicure inspired look every time. This product is available in Black, Pink, Blue, Purple, Silver, Gold, Bronze and White and is available for £3.99.
Barry M has made achieving perfect nails easier than ever with Instant nail effects, with just a few strokes you can achieve a new look every time. The nail polish is easy to apply and is ready in minutes so is ideal for if you forgot to do your nails just before a night out or an occasion!
When using it you may want to apply a bright colour first in order for it to still be visible after the effect, plus it makes the effect stand out more. Darker colours tend to make the effects fade into the background and not have that "wow" effect... The effect can be quite bold especially with the brighter colours such as the pink, white and blue, if you want a more subtle effect I'd stick to the silver, gold or bronze.
At £3.99 this product is value for money as it saves you having to go for a manicure or buying more expensive brands of nail polish in order to achieve beautiful nails. Also, if you wait then Boots or Superdrug tend to have offers on that mean that you can get two for so much or if you buy so many you get money off (just a tip from a money wary student...), but even at full price the product is well worth its money!
A problem with the product is that after time the polish starts to go gloopy which makes it harder to use and it doesn't give the same effect, it can also take a lot longer to dry when it goes gloopy because the polish on your nails is a lot thicker than what it should be! So just keep an eye out for if you need to buy a new one...
Overall, the nail polish is good value for its money as you can buy similar products for twice the price which give exactly the same effect. I would recommend this product because Barry M has a good range of colours so there is something for everyone, from those who want a bolder and brighter effect to those who would prefer to go a little bit more subtle with their effects. Many people have complimented my nails when I have used this product so it must be doing something right...
Summary: This product produces proffesional results in minutes and for a fraction of the price!
