Today I'm featuring the cheery, colourful Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint in Blueberry, a cool mid-tone periwinkle blue with purple undertones. It has a jelly-like, shiny finish that achieves full smoothness and opacity with two coats. I find it to be such a wearable, summery blue!
To spice things up with this manicure, I topped Blueberry with a fun, multifaceted top coat that I picked up in my recent Inglot Montreal haul. Inglot Dream Collection Nail Enamel #205 is a sheer, holographic top coat with a yellow/gold base and multicoloured glitter flakes. It's quite the stunner! I applied a couple sheer coats of #205 over top of blueberry to achieve the look featured in these pictures. I find it to be a true top coat in that, despite the flaky texture, it dries down to a completely smooth texture. No chunkiness or unevenness whatsoever!

I find that these shades layer so nicely together, both in terms of texture and shade. The Inglot top coat mutes and warms Blueberry slightly, but still lets the vibrancy of the colour shine through. Plus, the wear time of these has been excellent! I've been wearing this manicure for three days now without a single chip!
Here are a few more shots of the manicure, under different types of lighting:
I must say my longstanding obsession with Barry M. was totally founded as I am so in love with this nail polish! And the Inglot top coat paired so perfectly with the Barry M., making for a manicure I have not stopped staring at! A perfect cheery, summery combo- and hopefully starting a non-lazy nail streak for weeks to come!
Have you tried any Barry M. or Inglot nail polishes? What are your favourite summery nail shades lately?
