Barry M 'Peach Melba' nail paint

Barry M 'Peach Melba' nail paint-£2.99

Hi lovlies!

Peach Melba is one of the new nail paints released by Barry M for this spring summer.
It is a bright yet creamy peach colour, however in some lights it can look like a creamy neon orange.
I do love this colour and i think it would suit just about any skin tones from the super pale to the very dark. Not to mention it's a perfect spring/summer colour!
Consistency wise i find it to be quite runny which makes it quite difficult to apply and it does seem to take a while to dry.
I tried applying it in various ways to see which resulted in a better finish.

1- One coat, no base coat.
2- Two coats with base coat.
3- Two coats, no base coat.
4- One coat with base coat.

Obviously the base coat with two coats of nail paint came out with the best finish but i would definitely use a top coat as well. After half an hour of wearing this it had chipped, boooo!
I love this colour and i think it is a perfect colour to rock this summer but i find it such a pain to apply, only for it to be chipped less than an hour later.
I think i will carry on wearing this but i very much doubt i will be re-purchasing, sorry Barry M!
