BarryM Quick Dry Review

Does it really do what it says on the bottle?

Bottle says speedy quick dry nail paint so I decided to put it to the test and see just how speedy this product really is, I have been let down by a lot of products that say quick dry but really they mean give it 10 minutes THATS NOT QUICK! I applied a base coat just as the bottle suggested, this has not got anything to do with the drying process, but to protect your nail from discolouring from putting a dark colour straight onto your bare nails.

Upon opening the bottle I was most delighted as I found it had my favourite type of brush, wide and flat perfect for applying nail varnish effectively with out added mess and clumps. It applies evenly over the whole of the nail allowing you to get a coat all in one go, this alone speeds up the process already, just marvellous! With my timer at the ready I began to apply the nail varnish to my nails, now its the waiting game, will the bottle live up to its name….

YES, YES it did my nails were dry to touch within 50 seconds I was in shock, I have finally found a product that works. It comes in loads of lovely colours and is perfect for those rushed getting ready times for nights out, work or school. I am a very happy lady.

Unfortunately as with most BarryM nail varnishes they don’t last long on your nails, I have had mine on for a day and my nails are already chipping, however I only applied one coat and no top coat either and I find they always last a little longer when I have done both of these things.

I hope you enjoyed the review, I definitely recommend it to all of you nail loving ladies out there. I’ve already made a list of what colours I’m going to get next.

    I seriously use a nail spray that dries my nails, however I would love to find a polish that just did the drying quickly. I hate having to not being able to touch things because I just painted my nails. I will so be looking into this brand, hopefully they make Matte polishes!

      Yeah I agree is annoying having to shedule nail drying time I to getting ready. Unfortunately they haven’t made a Matt finish in the quick dry range but they do have a Matt finish range that I also use. However I also have there top coat Matt finish which I put on top of my ordinary gloss nail polish which makes it Matt finish. You could try this on the quick dry nail polish. I’ll try it out and let you know how I get on. Xx
