Apparently Barry M does a nice one. Mine is an indie polish from Pretty & Polished on Etsy, she no longer posts to the UK but http://shop.llarowe.com/main.sc does. The polish is called Galax-E (it's not there atm, but she stocks a smorgasboard of polish), I use it as a top coat as it's pretty sheer black & requires a good coat of seche vite afterwards.

Yes, but mine ISN'T Barry M.

This is a BM swatch:

This is the Galax-E swatch:

The BM one would be easier to get hold of though.

Just bought the Barry M one. I usually find their polishes too thin but if I use it as a topcoat over a black base it should be fine :) Thanks both :) I need to remember to get a photo of my nails as they are at the moment. Did a gradient nail from a nude at the cuticle, fading down to black at the tips with about 4 shades of grey in between. Took aaages but well worth it, though I did get told today that it makes my nails look 'a bit dead and dirty' :roll:

Everyone's nails look SO good! Question, how long does your nailpolish generally last before it starts chipping? I gave up on painting my nails years ago because it always seemed to start chipping after 2 days, max.

A good base coat & top coat is a great start, I can't recommend any though, except maybe seche vite & save the nail top coats. I don't use base as my nails never chip cos they're plastic.

Agree a good top coat is a must - I don't like Seche as it always seems to give me tip-shrinkage. My favourite top coat is Boots no 7 Stay Perfect, really quick drying and NO CHIPPING (on me) for over a week at least. I usually buy it when they've got those £5 off vouchers. I do use a basecoat too, mainly to avoid any chance of staining and to protect the nail a bit, either Boots No 7 Complete Care or a Sally Hansen one. And rubber gloves when washing up - they are a must too!

I've stopped using seche vite. Couldn't stand the fibre glass smell. I use "save the nail wet look top coat" made by nails Inc.
