REVIEW: Barry M Speedy Quick Dry Nail Polish

Barry M are definitely number 1 for me when it comes to nail polishes. I feel like they have the best colour selection, they're inexpensive and they always seem to be bringing out new formulas! 

The obvious is in the name 'speedy quick dry' so I reckon you can all guess what these nail polishes promise. That's right, what every girl wants in a nail polish for it to dry quickly! 

I picked up 2 different colours from the range 'Road Rage' which is slightly unusual for me as I rarely go for green/ blue shades and 'Pit Stop' which is a lot more like me, a muted nude/grey. I absolutely adore both shades and there are plenty more beautiful colours too (I just have way too many nail polishes so made myself stick with the two).

The formula of the nail polish is actually quite thin, which I guess helps with the whole 'quick dry' thing, but overall that actually means you need to apply more coats to get a good colour pay off. I found 1 coat definitely was too sheer, 2 coats was good and three coats gave an excellent colour. Each layer did dry faster than normal nail polish, but after the second coat the drying process seemed so slow down and I had to wait for quite a while for my nails to be touch dry.

Overall the polishes are great and I would recommend them (I also really love the super cute packaging), however they don't dry that much faster than your average polish once you've layered it up for good colour pay off. 

Have you tried the Barry M Speedy Quick Dry Nail Polish? If so, what are your thoughts?

Lots of love x


  1. I absolutely LOVE Barry M Nail Polishes too! I think these ones are great, but I prefer their 'Gelly' range :)
