Barry M: Sunset Daylight Curing
When Barry M posted on there Instagram account that Boots was having a 24 hour buy one get one free sale on there website on the Sunset Daylight Curing nail paints, I just knew that I had to go and have a look.
I've always been a fan of Barry M nail paints but had never tried the Sunset Daylight Curing ones before as I thought they wouldn't be much different to any other polish that claimed to be "pro nails without UV", and what with me being a nail technician when a brand claims it can give you pro nails without the need for a UV lamp i definitely expect high expectations from that brand.
The Barry M Sunset Daylight Curing nail paints come in 7 different colours and also a Topcoat that will only work with these particular nail paints. This topcoat cures naturally in daylight to leave your nails with a gel-like hi shine topcoat that last for upto 10 days. After I applied the topcoat to my nails, it literally took about 2-3 minutes to dry completely which I was rather impressed with.
The colour nail paint that I chose to go for was the one called "Do It Like A Nude" as I've really been into nude or pale colours for my nails just recently and this just seemed like the perfect colour for me, I think i go through stages of wearing bright colours then back to neutral colours again.
With this particular nail paint following the instructions it says to apply 2 thin coats, letting each coat dry for approximately 2 minutes drying time in between each one, although I actually applied 3 thin coats to get the full colour of this one. Then let the last thin coat dry for another 2 minutes before then applying a thin layer of the Topcoat, and this will dry and cure itself with natural daylight.
Now I personally know how proper gel nails are supposed to both look and feel, and I can honestly say the hi-gloss shine and feel that this topcoat gives is a very close call to real gel nails, so I am very impressed with them.
The picture above is the finished result after they had finished drying completely (please excuse how dry my cuticles look I had yet to apply cuticle oil in this picture). Usually after a couple of days i tend to find nail varnishes start to chip slightly, but with these nail paints I haven't yet got no chips out of them, none have lost there shine and I'm already into the 4 out of 10 days that they are supposed to last for.
If I had known how good these were gonna be, I would of took advantage of that 24 hour buy one get one free sale on the Boots website and I would of ordered all the other colours. But at just £4.99 each they are still very affordable and I can see myself going to buy a few more colours to add to my collection very soon.
All the Barry M Sunset Daylight Curing nail paints all have such fun names aswell, I will put a list of them all below:
Can't Get You Out Of My Red
The Way You Make Me Teal
You Drive Me Navy
I've Been Pinkin'
Peach For The Stars
Do It Like A Nude
They are all names of songs, but just with the colour of the nail paint added into them.
