Budget Buy: Barry M Speedy Quick Dry Nails


Time is short, even if my nails aren’t! So a quick dry nail varnish for a speed freak like me is a must to keep my nails looking their on-trend best.

Recently, I’ve been turning to the Barry M Speedy Quick Dry Nail Paints for pastel perfection in literally seconds. What’s there to say that you don’t already know about the fabulous Barry M range? Well, these are just as glossy as the Jelly range; shine has not been sacrificed in the name of speed. The brush is even better than before, flatter and slightly wider, so on my narrower nails one swipe is all I need – another super-speedy requisite.

These, aren’t, however, a one-coat wonder. Two coats are definitely the order of the day, and I find that I need two and a half to three coats on my thumb nails – weird but true, don’t ask me why. But by the time I’ve finished the second coat on my second hand, the first hand is already touch-dry, it’s literally that quick!

And can we just talk about the colours! Aren’t these the perfect shades for Spring? Of course, it’s no surprise that I’d be wearing the pale pink In a Heart Beat and the lilac Lap of Honour, but I thought I’d take myself out of my comfort zone and go for the light blue Eat my Dust and actually, I’m rather loving it! Next stop, the light green Pole Position!

Are you a speed freak? Have you tried these already?
