When the Barry M Gelly Hi Shine range first came out I instantly thought I'd rather pay the normal £2.99 and not £3.99 and use my glossy NYC Top Coat over the top.
However the one shade I gravitated towards instantly was 'Lychee' as it is just such a great shade. But for some reason I wish it had a nice sounding name to match. 'Salted Caramel' is what I would have called it.
However the five new additions to the Gelly Hi Shine range (out June 5th in Superdrug) have grabbed my attention as there are some great summer shades in there - you can see a preview of the shades here. I know I will be picking up Passionfruit and Keylime 100%.
Back to Lychee though for now as this is a shade to can pick up right now and is a must for nude nail polish lovers.

For me Lychee is the perfect warm nude shade. It may sound odd but the shade is so smooth and butter and this is only highlighted by the glossy finish. But these are my thoughts on the shade against my pale skin and I think it would appear differently against darker skin as the lightness of the shade would be more apparent, but still beautiful none the less.
As for application I really am impressed. A lot of light pastel type shades can be quite hard to apply/work with and look pretty streaky but this went on smoothly and only needed two coats, which is pretty damn good if you ask me.
I love how Lychee looks on it's own but I know this will be the most perfect base for glitter nail polishes such as the L'Oreal Confetti Top Coat or even some nail art leopard print.
If you love nude nail polishes you NEED this in your life, stat!
