This is one coat (yes, really!) of Blackberry, with no topcoat.
Application was lovely and smooth, the pigment is really intense, and the polish dries well.
Because I also have one of the new Barry M Glitters, I decided to add a coat of that too, just to see what it was like. This is one coat of Pink Sapphire over Blackberry.
Pink Sapphire looks very similar in the bottle to the lovely Once Upon a Time, but where that is just bar glitter, this is actually made up of tiny fuschia microglitter, larger fuschia hexagonal pieces, and holo bar glitter as well. It's very VERY shiny!
Moving on, this is one coat of Blue Plum, again, with no topcoat. This is a very dark blue, and coverage was pretty even. If I had been wearing this for longer, I might have added a second coat, as there were one or two areas that looked a little patchy.
It's still very shiny though, I do like this!
Next up is Watermelon, a deep green colour. Again, this is one coat, and no topcoat.
This is my least favourite of the colours so far, but that's just because I'm not currently a huge fan of green. I may be more in the mood for it once winter comes along.
Again, because I was in the mood for playing with glitter, I added a coat of this gorgeous Kleancolor glitter I got in my last fab USA swap. This is Aurora, which is stacks of different pinky-translucent-holo glitters in a clear to pink base. There are star shapes and everything! In the bottle it looks pink, but it's pretty clear, and there is a definite green tinge to some of the glitter, and I think these two work really well together!
Last of the bunch today is Blood Orange. This one is my favourite, but that's hardly surprising as I do love reds. This is definitely red, rather than orange. It's a really vibrant, pigmented, bright red. This is actually two coats this time - one would have been plenty, but I managed to dent a couple of nails, and wanted to even them out.
By the way, I had to cut my nails as I managed to break not one, but THREE last night. I'm not keen on the rounded shape, my fingers feel quite childlike. I miss my squarer tips! Oh well, they'll grow back.
Isn't it shiny?
So, I conclude that these Gelly polishes are NICE! I will be trying to get my hands on all the others as soon as I can.
Edited to add: you really do need to use a good basecoat with these, as the colours do stain a bit. Not so much on the nail, but on the cuticles if you did get some on there by accident. I found this especially noticeable with the blue and green colours. Also - because I was wearing the red for work, I added topcoat - and got massive shrinkage at the tips, the worst I think I've ever seen! So don't bother with the topcoat!
