Have you tried any nail polishes from Barry M?
The formula is thicker and I used two coats for this manicure as one coat was a bit streaky. I don't usually follow Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paints with a top coat since the finish is already very glossy.
Even without a top coat, this nail polish lasts over a week without chipping. I have a habit of filing my nails more often when I wear nail polish, so that takes care of any tip wear.
The Grapefruit shade is much brighter in reality than it appears in the photo. I really like it for the summer.
This nail polish retails for £3.99 and I purchased mine the summer before I moved away from the UK.
