ugly nail polish

You know when you paint your nails and then you realise the colour isn’t right at all? Thats what happened to me when I decided to put on this Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Nail Polish in Olive. Its a weird pale sage green that just does nothing for my already olive skintone. Formula wise it's really nice, glossy, easy to apply and quick drying but... yeah pass on the colour!

  4. I really like this color, to me it's a sophisticated neutral without being bland Makeup by Candlelight

  5. That's a shame, it looks pretty in the bottle but I have olive skin too so I'll avoid this! x

  7. I have olive skin too so i always tend to stick to dark colours which doesnt really help much so i tried vibrant ones and it kinda made my skin glow.

  9. I hate when a nail polish just looks really bad on, especially if it's a really nice colour!

  10. I wouldn't call it ugly as something that might not suit you may suit another :)

  15. I would love to wear more nudes and lighter/pale colours on my nails but they just don't suit my skin..shame!

  16. I bought this and I just didn't like it at all, in the bottle it looks like the perfect nude but it looked terrible applied!

  20. That's definitely a really sickly looking color for a nail polish. How strange.

  25. Tbh it doesn't look that bad at all. But if you don't like it then you don't like it for a reason.
    I've had this with some nail-polishes as well!

  26. Yellow is a no go for me and nudes I just can't seem to find the perfect one!
