First off, shouldn’t this be called SunRISE Daylight Curing Nail Paint? Anyway….


First I applied Iron Man because my nails have always been very weak and they dry out quickly when I apply nail polish directly to them. Then I applied Sunset Daylight Curing Nail Paint in All The Things She Red, which is a tropical orangey-red. I finished (as Barry M instructs) with Sunset Daylight Curing Top Coat. The top coat dried really quickly in direct sunlight to a firm, incredibly shiny finish. After using all three, my nails felt stronger and less flexible.


My DIY mani survived me washing my hands a few times and doing some light house work on Sunday but unfortunately by Monday pm the paint on one of my fingers chipped badly. The rest hung on though until Tuesday pm before chips at the ends of my nails started appearing and I had to remove it all.

This really didn’t last as long as hoped it would and I would in no way compare this to a real gel manicure, however it is the best nail polish I’ve used to date, regarding shine and staying power and for the amazingly affordable price, I’m going to be buying a lot more colours.

    I love Barry M nail polish, but I must admit, it really doesn’t last very long in my experience. It doesn’t hugely bother me because I get bored of colours easily so change them often, but for people who want their polish to last more than a week – they’re going to be sadly disappointed.

      I’m the same about changing my mood and colours which is why I don’t get professional manicures.
